One would imagine that a photographer’s kids would be perfect little models. I’ve found two camps of photographers, those lucky ones for which their child is their muse and they just can’t seem to snap a bad frame of them, and… the rest of us. I’m not gonna lie, photographing my kids is painful! Each and everyone of them is so difficult to photograph, they are so gorgeous… I would be excited to have them as clients, and yet they’re mine… and, yeah. I have this stunning 12 year old daughter, we are close, we love each other, really get each other… put a camera between us and we are a nightmare :) Forced expressions, irritation, mutually annoying, but as her mommy it is my duty to do my best to capture her at this stage. Not quite a woman, not quite a kid, I am in awe of how perfect she is to me, and yet I can’t seem to catch it all on camera. So here she is, part gorgeous girl, part preteen snark, a lot of really mom??? But, in the end I love them and I love her.
She is a stunning girl, and you captured her beautifully mommy :)
First, your daughter is beautiful. I am just starting off in photography and my daughter is absolutely beautiful, the love of my life, my best friend, my mini me….but to get a picture of her is like chinese water torture. I’m happy to know I’m not the only one. Thanks for sharing.
They are beautiful, just like she is. I love the 4th one.
