I love photographing kids! I enjoy the way they respond with such freedom to the presence of the camera. Their uninhibited excitement and creativity results in delightful photos. Even when they’re shy or occasionally being difficult, with a little patience and forethought you can produce some stunning shots.

When I involve groups of kids in the process and invite them to give me ideas for poses, activities or backdrops, they manage to come up with such amazing and zany ideas they’re a joy to photograph. I love watching their boundless energy as they do their thing and I let the camera work its magic.

Children live life to the fullest. When they’re happy, their laughter and joy is infectious. They’re never uptight or stiff when the camera’s on them. I can take a deep breath, relax and focus on capturing those priceless moments!
