The photos here are my way of trying to put into perspective the biggest problem most people have in taking pictures of children, especially the smallest of them. I've used the timer on my camera to get a kid's eye view of what we look like to them. My beautiful little grand daughter modeled for me to show the opposite perspective. Once they're mobile, we tend to follow our kids around on foot with a camera. What we get are photos of the tops of their heads with the floor or ground as the background. The best way to get a decent picture of these little ones is to get down on their level and let the action begin. It makes for better pictures and I think the kids tend to enjoy it more. As an aside, it is also a boost in communication to get down with them if you want to talk to them or play with them. It makes the experience a little more personable. In both cases, why not try it? I think you'll like it.
