Keeping Your Sanity While Photographing Your Toddler

Raise your hand if trying to take a photo of your toddler makes you want to pull out your hair.

If you have a rambunctious toddler like I do, take comfort in knowing that all hope is not lost! It is possible to get a good photo. Even on your phone!
