Blurry Toddler Syndrome-Contemporary Portrait Photographer-Melody Moore Photography

What do you do when you have a toddler that has just learned to walk and will not stay still, even for a second, to get a picture of them? More than likely all the pictures turn out  blurry and most of them are of the back of her head.  This is so frustrating and if you have ever tried to take a picture of a toddler, you have had this experience.  Here are a few tricks to help with the blurry toddler syndrome!

Put your camera on the sport setting or high speed continuous shooting (most phones have this now), get some exercise and run out ahead of your toddler, turn around, and start shooting!

Bubbles are always a great way to get them to stay in one general area.

Sit your toddler down on something or someone!

If you want a shot of your toddler with other people and she doesn’t want to be held, have them walk or stand behind her.

My favorite trick- tell them that there is a monkey or some other animal in the lens and they have to look right in the lens to see the monkey.

Finally!  Your toddler is pooped and you can hold them!

Thanks for reading and I hope these tips are helpful!
