Working with toddlers is a challenge. Photographing our daughter usually requires two adults to make it happen. This shot was no exception so I must give thanks to my wife.

I pointed one flash at the ceiling to bounce soft light everywhere and pointed a second with a tight grid at just my daughter to make her just a little brighter than the animals. Then we made funny faces and I shot as fast as the flashes would recharge until she lost interest two minutes later.

I usually shoot in RAW but this one was .jpg. That limited my adjustments in Canon's DPP to:

I think this would have had more impact, if the child was interacting with the toys, instead of just laying on them.

I like the unique exspression rather then just a smile or something that you see every little kid picture
