It became a tradition for me to take pictures of my friend’s son Vadim just before the holidays. After last year’s session I remember being pretty exhausted as it can be really hard to take pictures of toddlers. Little did I know!

As challenging as it is to take pictures of a 1.5 year-old, it’s close to impossible to take pictures of 2.5 year-olds! Vadim was extremely interested in my camera and wanted nothing to do with all the toys his mom was offering to him as distractions. He wanted to have my camera!! I had to hide it behind my back in between the shots, but every time I’d get it out he would run towards me trying to grab a hold of it :)

Here are a few fun favorites:

And here’s last years session. I’m hoping next year will be easier! :)
