Sometimes when I meet a new family the kids are shy. This is when I wish my camera was invisible. I hate that I have to hide behind a big black box. So, I try to get to know babies and kids before I pick up my camera. And sometimes, they let me into their world. They tell me about the things they like…what they know how to do.
Taking pictures in a play area is a good way for kids to warm up to the idea of being photographed. We start on their turf! And pretty soon, they’re having fun and they forget what I’m there to do.
I have much more to share from this photo session…but it’s about 2 hours past my bedtime, so part 2 will have to come tomorrow!
