Shooting pics of kids can be tough...I don't like my picture taken either so I can't blame them for hating a portrait session. Photographs that I'm drawn to have a common tread of being candid moments that deliver an emotional response. As a photographer trying to predict or sometimes even orchestratating these moments can be tricky depending on the subject. I like to put people in places where they can get lost in the moment...these moments are what make the photographs special memories. Sometimes it works better than others! This recent shoot was all fun and hopefully the images speak for the joy that comes from being the simple joy of a child being free in the water!
