{Let them be little…}

One of the best parts of photographing children, is letting them be themselves and discovering their interests and personalities.  When it comes to kids, I just love the bruised knees, disheveled hair, and dirty hands.  Sometime it’s nice to forgo the cute outfits and vintage prop, and instead opt for the dress up clothes and dirty dump trucks.  I think the imperfection is what makes the image “perfect”…it tells the story of that child at that moment in their life.

Let them be little, let them have fun, and let go of trying to make them sit still and smile at the camera.  Instead, think about that image that will freeze frame time and take you back to a moment in their childhood that will be gone all too quickly…
