Sometimes kids are a little shy with strangers. But not Josiah, I had the best time photographing him. He was the sunshine of my day… I love this image so much, It will be a sample in my presentation room!
Why do I love to photograph kids? They don’t care if you photograph them. Even when they are playing with their favourite toy. Who said every photo of a child had to be staring straight at you with a big smile? I prefer the type of photos that show personality. When a parent say’s “oh I like it but he’s not smiling” I ask them if they know what the most famous smile in the world is? Of course the question stumps a few people….. The Mona Lisa is famous because of her “non” smile!
Sometimes kids ham it up and just give you a expression that is priceless.Thank goodness I have a quick finger!
Kids never criticize how many wrinkles they have or make comment on how their thighs look. They don’t know about photoshop or ask to take a few years off. They just want to see themselves, they accept themselves and if they don’t like it they will tell you! I sometimes wish more of my adult clients could be like children 🙂
