Winter is coming! And if you thought that meant it was going to be almost another year before you could get some great photos of your kids, think again! Capturing great images of children is a lot less about everything being perfect (like the weather), and more about helping them have fun, even in the cold!

These photos were captured early this year, in the bitter cold. Of course, we had the help of some Hot-Hands warmers to stick in our gloves—something I always carry with me to share that time of year—and everyone was well bundled up. However, needless to say, this little guy was having a blast, and mom doing a great job joining in the fun, too.

As is common with photos of toddlers, these images were captured at a small local park just a few minutes from their home.
