I have been an artist for as long as I can remember and photography is my passion. I used to be a successful fine artist, but since I shot my first wedding I never looked back. I am madly and completely in love with weddings, I guess it is the romantic in me :)

Photos of Babies and Children!

I am not a children or baby photographer and really don't have the time to be one. My weddings take up all of my time. Very rarely I will do a photo session of a newborn or child of one of my couples, but lately it is getting harder and harder for me to find the time to do so, but when I do I believe children are best photographed in their natural environment........not posed. Posing a child does not show their true little wonderful personalities and that is what I think should be captured in a photo.
The "IN" thing in baby and children photography at the moment is putting the little ones in awkward positions and sometimes even dangerous ones. Are they cute??? They can be if it is done well and there are some photographers that do that well, but there are also photographers that take way to many chances with those little guys in my opinion. I was going to post a video of one of those children sessions that was online, but it since has been removed for good reason. It showed a maybe 1 year old falling and the mother catching it just in time before the child would have landed on her or his head from quite a hight. No photo is worth putting a childs future at risk.

The attached photos to this post are images of my grandchildren and they show the personality of each....someday they will look back and see what kind of children they were ...... full of fun, kindness and even a little bit of "Here comes TROUBLE" :)
