Any parent will tell you that child development and child growth happens at a rate of knots. I take a lot of photographs as you can imagine! In fact, between my wife and I we pretty much take multiple gigabytes of imagery every year. It’s an occupational hazard as well as a family passion. We love photographs.
Our daughter gets photographed quite a lot and she is well used to being in front of a camera, but much of the imagery that we get of her is pretty much candid, every day lifestyle type shots. Photo’s of her and us doing our own thing. So it was nice to get her in the studio where I could capture a range of images and emotions that many 6 year olds display at any given moment. Playful, sad, crazy, thoughtful, vacant, happy, forlorn, etc. She was a delight to work with and we had a lot of fun. I really should and will do this more often with her as she is growing up.
I was looking for something clean, a little low key and my focus was really very much on her in the spotlight so to speak.
Here are some of the shots from the studio session.
