Last week I had the pleasure of being invited to photograph two year old Rio and his big sister Hallie-May. This was a candid kids mini-shoot and their lovely mum was hoping to re-create a photo for Rio. She was hoping to achieve a similar one that Hallie-May had at around the same age.
Being so little, children never quite do what you’re hoping so it’s a case of trying to ensure they are relaxed and having fun. I then basically follow them around with my camera! We started off in the lounge and ended up in the garden and finally as Rio was getting tired, back in the house. A lady called in whom I assumed was the children’s Nana. Little Rio wanted her to have some photos with them and I encouraged Nan to get down on the grass with the children. It ws a nice evening and I encouraged her to lie down with the kids having photos and messing around. I was totally shocked as she left when Stacey their mum told me it was HER nan – and therefore the children’s great-grandmother! She looked amazing and was a great laugh ‘getting down with the kids’! I thoroughly enjoyed photographing this lovely family in Maesycwmmer. I hope to see them again and document the children as they grow.
