Taking photos of kids can be challenging when they are not used to getting photographed. Young children these days are used to having pictures taken due to the popularity of smart phones. However, kids are kids and some can be very camera shy. This was the case with these two children 4 and 7 years old.

The first thing I did was getting their mum and dad together for warm up pictures (most of which have been culled) and once they got the hang of my directions they became better models. Most of them are candid shots but some are not. It’s hard to tell which is which. And that I think is a good thing.
