After photographing weddings for the last 12 years, it was only natural that our clients had babies and needed a photographer. It’s always a joy to see previous clients, catch up on life and document another huge milestone in their life. Children photography is one of the hardest parts of my job, but also one of the most rewarding. Photographing children you never know what you are going to get. Some are shy with me, some are crabby, some are extremely happy, for the most part though children are easily distracted. They can change their mood in a heartbeat. You can easily turn those tears into giggles and smiles with a few simple tricks. Here are some of my favorite photos from this past year photographing children. Enjoy.
