I have concluded that photographing kids is one of my favorite things to do. It is a fun challenge chasing them around and trying to get interesting photos of them that are colorful, sharp and show their personalities. I find that I like a lot of shots that have eye contact, eyes being windows to the soul and all. But yet, I still like them to be candid moments. And really, they all have to be candid. Have you ever tried to pose a child?! It’s next to impossible.
I met this wonderful family that live in Savannah when I photographed their grandfather’s 100th birthday party a little over a year ago. I was happy to see them again to do some family portraits down at one of their favorite spots, the marina. Editing these photos made me smile.
When kids fall in the grass and roll around you might as well go down with them!
There was lots of action and movement with two boys around!
These guys found this spot on their own, it was perfect for them.
Don’t you wonder what he’s smiling about?
A treat for being such a great model.
You can tell we’re in the Lowcountry.
