Pro Tip for your newborn session with a toddler: If you already have a toddler and you have just welcomed a newborn baby, a session where they need to be smiling might be daunting to you. And that’s okay! If it were easy, it wouldn’t be worth it. I am very much like a toddler in that I am highly motivated by snacks- so bring their favorites! Make sure they are dye-free to avoid large patches of red or blue on their faces. It also helps to bring a bib or make the snack as mess-free as possible. Some of my favorite snacks that I recommend are: Puff snacks for infants, yogurt drop snacks, dried fruit, nuts, teething crackers, cheese crisps, fruit and/or yogurt squeeze packs, animal crackers, or Yum Earth fruit snacks.
