Children’s Photography: 2 year old photos

You know that saying terrible twos? This kid got none o’ that. Fo’ reals. Now… his mommy swears he hit them at 18 months, but I took his pics to celebrate his recent 2nd birthday and he was nothin’ but angelic.

Can’t you just feel his personality?

  1. You’re so awesome! I seriously want to be like you when I grow up. 😀

    So, how did you get the background – fabric?

    Pst! In your bottom note, eachother needs a space. ;D

    • The background is a big roll of paper hung on a dowel. It’s made for photographers, and it’s an inexpensive way to make a seamless, unobtrusive background.

      I’ll try to get a pic of the set up for you.

      It was a gift from my Handy Man. Um, on his birthday. Hmmm, maybe it wasn’t for me after all…

  2. Good gravy! I can’t believe I just typed that in a comment. Did that sound really AR or what?!

  3. Swimming in Awe girlfriend! Your a total rock star. : )

  4. These are too cute!!!!!!

  5. Love the 2nd photo..he is so adorable…
    My grandson turns 2 when I’m in South African on holiday later this month, I hear he’s a monster!!

  6. Darcy,
    This little guy is adorable. How fun! You did an awesome job – I can just see his little 2 year old personality written all over him. Very cute!

  7. Heather(Simply Grand Central) says:

    These are spectacular. My favorite is the black and white.
    I too am curious about the white back drop.
    Great job!

  8. Darcy-
    I love that you captured the giggle in his eyes!!! Such darling portraits… 😀

  9. Question: About your lenses, which one is your favorite? I just bought the 50mm 1.4 and can’t wait to play with it. I would love to know which lens you used on the first pic and what your aperture was set to.

    Thanks! 🙂

    • That’s my fav, Beth. I love the 50mm 1.4 (not to be confused with the 50mm 1.8). These were all shot with that lens.

      I will throw the image in LR and look up the specs for you. I don’t remember off hand.

  10. Oh my goodness!! How precious!

  11. Oh how precious!!! Love how he’s smiling even with his eyes!

    And Ruthanne, yes that was quite AR. LOL Just like me.

  12. They are wonderful!! yes… please spill… what kind of backdrop? 🙂

  13. Hey! Ruthann, I AM from AR. We’re not all uneducated! 😉

    The pictures are amazing. Maybe he was soo-oo good because he’s really 3? I mean, it looks like the cutie skipped right over the year. My now-2-year old doesn’t look nearly so 3-ish. Or maybe it’s just my wishful thinking.

    • He’s my nephew, so I can pretty much promise he’s a brand new 2 yo. The suit makes him look like an older man. I’ve got some of him tackling a cupcake with his little boy belly and he looks much younger.

    • Wendy ~ I’m from Arkansas, too (still live here actually)!

      As I actually wasn’t making fun of our home state just then, I have been known to do so on several occasions ~ strictly in love though. I have a strict policy of only making fun of things I love. ;D

  14. TONS of personality. I love it!

  15. ha! No worries; I was kidding. I do tend to make fun of my home state, and thought she was doing the same. 😉

    Okay, I trust you on his age! He looks adorable and so grown-up in “big man” clothes. Great job with the photos!

  16. What cutie pie!!!

  17. Aw, you did him good. Very sweet shots.

  18. Cute, cute, cute! Great birthday present, too. 🙂
