My first kids photography shoot

Ok, so my camera is like an extension to my right arm – so it’s about time I put that to some good use.  Step in one of my best friends two girl’s to give me a crash course in photographing children.  Oh, how much they have taught me without even knowing it.

It was great having the both of them, and seeing how 2 very different personalities interact with (or avoid!) the camera.  I was (quietly) nervous entering my first kids shoot, attempting to expect the unexpected with them, but I’ve walked away so excited to take more photo’s, get more experienced and enjoy more days like these!  We did an outdoors shoot and we honestly had such great fun.  They had me smiling and laughing most of the day, and I didn’t feel like I was working at all (isn’t that what we all want?)  I ditched the gym that morning, but after four hours running around and playing with them, all whilst trying to get some great photos, I got all the work out I needed that day!
