There are so many things I love about my job as a photographer, but my most favorite is getting the chance to photograph children. I know some photographers would scratch their heads and wonder why, especially because children don't sit still or pose and sometimes they are so shy of the camera that they bury their heads in their parents embrace. But I love it - every single thing about it! The secret to my success as a children's photographer is I come to each session with not a single thing planned. No props. No agenda. No staged production. I come soley with my camera and my undivided attention to what is going on. I encourage children to play, to run, to jump and to do whatever it is they do that makes them the unique individuals they are. After several hundred clicks of the shutter button, I have all that I need to create a lasting treasure of time that is so fleeting, all one has to do is blink and it is gone . . . unless it was photographed.
How lucky Amelia is to live so close to a pond with minnows, tadpoles and frogs.How do you preserve those precious, fleeting moments?
