Baby & Toddler Photos

For over 10 years I have been the official photographer for a
glossy magazine for a baby and toddler section in it, when they need me.

They say that summer is the best time for sunsets, and although
that is true to some extent, there are also some wonderful sunsets
to be seen at different times of the year.
Most are stumbled upon accidentally, but if you are going out
to seriously take a particular place at sunset you need to arrive at
least an hour before sundown to get set up and to be able to get
a good variety of shots as the sun goes down.
Although you could get away with setting your camera on a post
or another s…
