We all have a favourite photograph of ourselves from our childhood. We might be playing around in the park. Dressing-up in mum’s clothes. Or blowing out candles on our birthday cake.
The moment we dig this old photo out we’re transported back in time, no matter how long ago it was. We remember the special drink mum made us when we were ill, how our dad used to make us laugh, and the favourite toy we refused to be separated from. (Even when we got all big and grown up.)
Kids’ photography is about capturing your child at their most expressive, uninhibited and mischievous. It’s about photographing a fleeting moment in their childhood that is over all too soon.But photographs of your children aren’t just for you. They’re a lovely memento for your kids as well. So at some point in the future they’ll look at these beautifully shot portraits and think about all the fun they had that day.In fact, Children’s photography is about creating a portrait that’s as much loved by your child, as it is by you.
