"To me there is no picture so beautiful as smiling, bright-eyed, happy children; no music so sweet as their clear and ringing laughter
- P.T. Barnum
Children grow so fast! A blink of an eye and they are out of nappies and off to Uni. I am currently witnessing this myself with my daughter.
Children are just wonderful to sit and watch. You can see their minds tick as they explore new things.
The sudden explosion of expressions that lights up their faces when a toy makes a noise or they find something really interesting. Children can also be shy when meeting someone new or doing something they are unsure of. A little game of 'peek a boo' never goes a stray especially with young children and I have a ball pit as well which allows a relaxed and fun atmosphere. It can create some beautiful intimate family photos when a child is shy, but, I like to talk to them and build a relationship which enables me to capture your child's personality in a portrait.
Children should be free to be children.
