Big Stick Photography portraits of teenagers

Babies, Children and teen portraits…

Child photography can be challenging…they say actors should never work with children and animals …and it’s true! Kids are natural performers, they have no inhibitions and generally love being centre of attention. Children tend to move around a lot and become impatient easily. However, to capture that moment in time when the light of childhood shines through is worth the effort. Child photography is great for the unpredictability kids provide, they are unselfconscious, unaffected by vanity and consequently you can just watch and capture their energy and youth on camera.

I did a ‘shoot’ for a recycling campaign in Dacorum recently with a family as models, they were all amateurs abut really threw themselves into it and we got some great shots.Interestingly though it was the children (a boy aged around 9 and a girl of around 12 years old) who stole the show. They saw the whole process as fun and an opportunity to express themselves.They quickly relaxed and didn’t worry about being embarrassed and as a result we got some great shots. I enjoy photographing kids for exactly these reasons, they need little direction to give you an appealing image. They can also bring out the best in adults too…

so if you want some pics of the children or a family image that’s a little more unusual, then give BIG STICK PHOTOGRAPHY a call on 01442 828883
