As a photographer I spend a fair amount of time photographing my three children. My daughter has always been the most obliging and has modelled for me regularly either for childrenswear campaigns or for portrait blog posts. My eldest son is the most reluctant to be in front of the camera and unless I get him in the right frame of mind will most likely pull a wholly unattractive grimace much to my frustration!
My youngest son has taken to sticking his tongue out at every opportunity or grinning like a cheshire cat with his eyes shut (such is the practiced face of many a three year old when asked to pose for the camera!). It is a miracle, therefore, that I was able to get a fairly normal set of portraits at all in my last post ‘How motherhood has changed me’ of us all together!
I therefore spend as much time as possible documenting my children rather than trying to get them to pose for me. By doing so, I have managed to capture some beautiful imagery of them that is both natural and captivating because it tells a story. Most of us have taken a photograph of our children at bath time, after all, bath time is such a childhood ritual that is worthy of being captured. However, if you are in the mood for getting creative with your photography, I can give you some great tips on how to take beautiful bath time portraits that will be a step up from the usual cheesy grins and will instead capture your child naturally and in the moment.
