I am a creative, and a mom. So, it goes without saying that yes, I photograph my own child a bit excessively! He’s learned the camera comes everywhere with us, and he’s a good sport to give me lots of smiles and candid shots. Recently, he got the chance to swim at a friend’s pool, and I eagerly took the chance to try out some new techniques for shooting in a pool. Now, I haven’t gotten my camera fitted to go underwater, but I did get in the pool myself to get some close-ups of my little fish! There’s not much he loves more than cooling off in the water, and we had a ton of fun.
More and more I think families are realizing how invaluable professional photos of real, everyday life are. Like me, parents want to look back and remember the sounds and sights of summer with your family, including splashing in the pool together. If you have access to a private pool and have little “fish” of your own, let’s schedule a session in the water! They are candid, fun, and kids LOVE these types of shoots because they can do what they do best – be themselves! Contact me today to set one up!
