Tips for photoshoot
This weekend, i am doing a photoshoot of a 1 year old. This is actually my first shoot not involving my dog or my girlfriend. We are going to go to a bluebonnet field and we are also going to go to a park to get pics. We plan on meeting in the morning around 830-9 but the weather will be in the 40's but the sun should be out and it shouldnt be cloudy. Do you guys have any tips or links that you can send my way. Thanks in advance.

There is one thing you may want to consider among others: keep you subject out of direct sunlight, in a bright but shady area.
Nobody look good with a "grimacy" frown!
Have a good time!

I am mostly a landscape photographer but I can share one tip. Whenever you are photographing children or pets get down on their level. Nothing looks worse than a shot that is looking down at a child or pet.
If you must photograph in the sun, sometimes a little fill flash helps.

Good call on the child's level. Hard-shell knee pads can be quite useful.

The attachment don't do justice as I had to reduce from 300DPI to 75 in order to show this picture. at 300dpi Its show every individual hair.
I used a software called PhotoStyler to add the Picture Frame.
