Family portraits Christchurch. Young kids are the ultimate test of an on-location family portrait photographer.
Don't believe me? Then consider the following...
Young kids couldn't care less if their parents have arranged for a photographer to turn up and take some family photos.
Young kids aren't fooled by any stranger with a camera (that's the photographer by the way), trying to get said kid to do what the photographer wants.
Young kids have their own concept about time and what they want to do with it.
Young kids will take any object you give them - let's say an acorn - and promptly pop it in their mouth. Instant choking hazard anyone?
When it comes to photographing young kids with their family, I have one rule - keep the young one's happy and the rest will take care of itself.
Young kids are inherently cool. They have a natural innocence and a curiosity about the world around them, which I find refreshing.
Kids grow up fast. Really fast.
Don't miss this time in their lives to get some on-location family portraits.
