Every Picture Tells a Story

02 February 2015

Every picture tells a story and I love images to capture the real character of a child.

Gorgeous photos are one thing but the ones that show your child’s personality are the ones you will love the most. In 5, 10 or 15 years time, you will cherish the images that captured their unique characters.

My youngest son doesn’t like his photo taken, he can sometimes be overly sensitive and on occasion, huffy. I used to find it frustrating when attempting to take his picture, but then realized that if I wanted photos of him I was going to have to work around his moods.

Children are all different and their personalities can vary so much. Sometimes parents worry that their children might not sit still, not smile, or be difficult during a portrait session. But sometimes they need a little time to do things on their own terms; that’s when the magic happens.

When doing a children’s photoshoot, I really love to capture the real kid. Exactly the way they are. It’s even better when there are siblings, as seeing the family dynamic is svery special.

I loved the resulting images I got from this photo shoot as it shows the personality of each of them and says so much about their relationship.

Cute smiley photos are lovely and I have many of my 2 boys, although I know that pictures like the one above will evoke more emotion. It tells a story and I smile when ever I see it because it captures their personalities perfectly.

  1. Brilliant! And so true! When I look back at our family photos and me and my sister being kids it’s the action shots that evoke more emotion and memory than the portrait ones! Fab pictures I absolutely love the last one! You would never get them to do a posed hug!!

      Thanks Gemma, there is no way he would have done that by me just asking. Older siblings are great for bringing out the best in younger ones.

    Love personality shots between siblings. Of all the photos I have had done of my little ones, my favourites were the ones of them doing ring a roses in the studio to prevent my littlest one having a major tantrum.. ;o)
