One of my favorite things about taking photographs of children is that they wear their emotions front and center. The slightest change in thought or reaction radiates from the arch of their eye brows to the smirk in their smile. As a parent, I want to remember each of these expressions as my child gets older. I don’t want the fake “cheese” smile. I want their belly laugh expression; their contemplative assessment of what is happening; their serious stare that bores through your soul. So forget the set-ups and different backdrops. I want to highlight the awesomeness that is your child.
