It's been a while since my last blog, which is very naughty of me. I have had the joy of photographing Molly who was a 20 month old with character. I love photographing children and they have fun whilst they are in the studio. I never try to force a smile and always hope that the children feel happy and not under pressure.
Molly was a 20 month bundle of joy. Beautiful face and fiesty personality. She knew what she wanted and how to play up to the character. It was great fun and because I have two children of my own I know that if you push and rush them you seldom get the best out of them.
At the end of our session Molly popped herself up on my lap and gave me a lovely cuddle. I love sessions like that. Molly obviously felt comfortable enough with me to be more personal. I think it's important, you only have a short amount of time to 'make friends' and I think that little people like being on a level with you rather than feeling high expectations of what might be expected of them.
It's meant to be fun!
