Shyon, a shy but smart little boy, was someone I was excited to photograph. His beautiful hair, pinch-able cheeks and mischievousness all contributed to why babies are fun to shoot.
Normally most people warm up and relax more throughout the photoshoot and end up having the better and more natural photos towards the end of a shoot as opposed to the beginning. However, with this little guy, what started out as the test shots in his home clothes, turned out to be candid and genuine moments. He was in his element, playful, curious as to why this lady (me) was here in his home with all the fancy equipments, setting up strange lights and carrying one too many white umbrellas… when it wasn’t raining.
While his curiousity was piqued – I was able to capture these beautiful moments way before he was even changed into his fancier clothes. This goes to prove, that you cannot predict your child’s behaviour, but rather you have to let them be comfortable as they are.
With head full of curls, and a shy genuine smile – what’s not to love?
