People comment all the time about how challenging it must be to photograph young children, especially several at the same time. I always say the same thing. I don’t find it to be tough at all. If I were trying to make them all sit in a perfect little row, sure. That’s just not what I do, and I find that kind of portrait work to be a bit stiff and not at all realistic. I want to capture the real moment. When I photograph small children I just hang out with them. I let them unveil to me their sweet and funny personalities, and that’s what I run with. Some children are super playful, some shy, some are down right serious. It’s all beautiful, and I don’t think ‘smile for the camera’ is always the way to go. These gorgeous kiddos are so fun!
Every family portrait session should be a lot of things, but most importantly it should be FUN and UNIQUE! That’s what it’s all about. 🙂
