So if you read my last post you'll know I'm soooo into these Motherhood sessions at the moment. I was so excited to shoot Samantha and her two little men!!
These kids couldn't have cared less that I had a camera in their face. When you take kids outside and tell them to "just play" it takes the pressure off everyone. My goal is to capture connection, not to keep them still. These boys did so well and were so happy to just play with their Mum outside.
It's funny, on the day of a session it can be full on for a parent to organise outfits, feed the kids and get everyone to the location on time BUT... the kids just see it as a trip to the park (or beach, or wherever). It doesn't have to be stressful. Let the kids take the lead and you'll be left with natural looking photos to keep forever.
