My favorite photographic subject..

One look in my portfolio and it's obvious. I love photographing kids but more than that, I love incorporating their pets ( animals ) in their images. There is just something magical even a bit whimsical when you see a young child interacting with their pet.

You can almost feel the invisible bond between them however, I'll be the first to admit it. Working with young children can be tricky but throw in an excited pup or skittish kitten..well it just got a lot more challenging! ;)

So, what's my secret? well aside from the bribery ( candies/chocolates/ice cream.. = sugar high! 😅 ) nothing beats PATIENCE! I've been extremely fortunate to have worked with a lot of children through the years and if there's anything I learned it's that children take their time. If they're not ready, they're not ready. So just sit back, let them settle down and wait. The 'magic' will soon follow ❤️
