Do you look at your kids and feel like you can see them growing right in front of you? Are you compelled to capture the moments before they are gone?
From the day Ian was born I’ve felt that pull. That need. That desire to capture his personality, his habits, his moments, him. It’s been a strange feeling of his leaving me. That is the goal right? Raise him and get him out into the world. I never expected that feeling to be so strong when he was so young. But it is.
In Your Kids Captured Through The Lens I cover your camera AND technique for photographing your kids at their best (and their worst). I’m joined by 6 amazing moms who share a love for photography and for capturing their kids. They each provide their perspective and strategies for making the most of some of the most difficult photography subjects!
I asked them to answer one question.
