I have found when doing a family shoot, that the kids are quite often reluctant to have their photo's taken at first. I know with my own children, the reluctance to relax in front of the camera, although their reasons are not so much from shyness but more from being sick of me "trying out stuff" on them! This recent family shoot was no exception, and the kids were pretty shy at first, especially the wee one. But that lasted for about .... oh... 3 minutes and then it was all go. Little Miss J, was in fact directing me in the end! These kids were so cute, and half the time I was in stitches and couldn't get a shot for laughing. I think the M family have a supermodel or three on their hands!
I believe in working with you to create images you will love, and cherish, because "It's all about you!"
