Children’s Portraits – Gold Coast
I love photographing children, watching the way they interact with the camera is amazing, they don’t have our adult doubts and insecurities. Children’s portrait sessions should be fun and magical. I love seeing girls swishing about in their skirts and feeling like a princess or in their superhero costume feeling strong and powerful. This shoot was beautiful and my young model loved every moment of being the star of the show. We tried a few different things and got into the flow of the shoot. My child portrait shoots are just as they should be, with no pressure and we laugh a lot. We had an awesome time.
I feel it relaxes children to let them have a sneak peak at the back of the camera, seeing themselves seems to add another dimension to the shoot. Once they see themselves and see how amazing they look the feel of the shoot changes dramatically. You have their trust and they relax and really begin to enjoy the experience. We shot this at a great location on the Gold Coast where there are not to many people around and not a lot of distractions.
My children’s portrait sessions are quite quick because you can’t waste time with children, they don’t wait. I have a clear idea of how I am going to shoot the session, and then I let things evolve naturally. I find what they are most comfortable with and then we build on that. It’s vital that children enjoy the experience and I always find a way to make that happen. I find shoots are most successful when parents just sit back watch and enjoy and let the process happen.
I have a great selection of skirts and dresses in all sizes.
