Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children
– Charles R. Swindoll
Taking photos of children and babies can often be challenging. A true portrait of a child will reflect their personality, uniqueness, and adventurous attitude.
To truly capture a child in their natural setting I like to photograph them while they are in motion. Children playing, having fun, and enjoying themselves are often the photos parents love the most, and the photos I enjoy taking.
Before each photo session I like to speak with the parents to find out what the children enjoy. I often ask them to bring a favorite toy. Whether this is a bubbles, a stuffed animal, or a doll, if the children enjoy it playing with it then the photos will be wonderful. I also like to have the parents bring their child’s favorite fruit or candy to the shoot for more fun!
