Kids don’t always want to be photographed because believe it or not, standing still and staring at an adult with a gigantic black object in front of their face… it’s not that entertaining. Which is why I don’t frequently ask kids to stand still… standing still is not really a kid thing anyway, is it?
My aim in photographing your family is to capture you, as you really are. Some kids do stand still. They smile on command or do adorable poses… but they do that in real life too… so that’s great for their portraits. I don’t want to make your kid do something that they don’t want to do. This little guy liked reading books. So we photographed him reading. He liked climbing, so I gave him a stool to climb. He liked looking out the window at buses (a very popular theme at my studio!), so we let him. We allowed him the freedom to do what he wanted to do, to be a kid, and we got some adorable portraits of him being him.
Vancouver family portraits in a studio don’t have to be painful. This family opted for a mini session which was the perfect amount of time to keep their little guy happy and engaged. Of course, we can also do portraits at a park, or at your house. Locations are flexible, as are the portrait sessions.
