Here's his tip:
"A great way to get different kid portraits is to find trees with low leafy canopies. Weeping willows make great pictures.
Position yourself under the canopy looking out. Get you child to look in towards the camera. A game of peep po works. You'll probably need a 24-70mm lens. Position yourself so your subject is well backlit by the sun or brightest patch of sky. Keep the picture tight and bright.
Use exposure compensation, you'll probably need at least +2stops, more likely +3. Create gorgeous high key pictures with beautiful rim and kick lighting.
