Children are so fun, yet can be so complicated to photograph. They can be very into having their photo taken or become bored and want to go play! Why do I want to photograph children? I find it sooooo joyful. I enjoy playing and getting to know them. I love their honesty and authenticity. They are simply themselves and they don’t care what you think about them. That lasts for a little while until they get old enough to care, which is usually a bummer. My favorite part is when they just walk up to me and give me a hug. It’s usually so random but extremely sweet. I appreciate that more than they will ever know.
