My little one:
…on the phone…
…in the clothes hamper…
…in my shoes… (all ways to get him to stay in one spot for more than a milli-second!)
…tantrum time, but milk should make it OK.
Photograph your kids! … Or better yet, hire a professional to do it for you!
I’ve seen first hand over the last (almost) two years how fast a little one can change. It’s crazy really. I’ll take a photograph of him one week, then another the next, and there’s a clear difference between the two. He’ll look older in the new image, for sure. And for that reason, I make it a point to try and photograph him all the time, as much as possible. Whether it be on the iPhone, my Digital SLR, or my Fuji x100 point and shoot camera, just making sure I take pictures of him on a regular basis is the key.
I don’t always set up a backdrop like the images above, as a matter of fact, most times I photograph him we’re just playing out in the yard kicking a ball around. But every once in a while, I’ll take the time to schlep all my gear upstairs and set up a nice clean background like this for a simpler shot.
I’m trying to decide now which one to send off to my canvas company to be made into a beautiful wall portrait. Because what good are the pictures if not printed out for everyone to enjoy?
Take pictures of your kids and your family – then PRINT those pictures of your kids and your family, and hang them on the wall. If you think you’ll never get around to taking and printing those type of pictures, call me or another professional photographer to do it for you. I’d be more than happy to help!
