It’s about loving what you do
The images in this post represent two passions. One was mine, getting to photograph this session. The other was this young dancer following her ballet dreams. Maybe it’s because there is something infections about the boundless opportunities still ahead for kids but it’s a really special energy to be around, watching kids doing something they love.
This girl has a big future, a wonderful kid and I feel so fortunate to have been able to capture this time in her life. I can’t wait to incorporate more of this into my Adelaide sessions – photographing kids and teens doing something that really makes them shine. Showcasing that ‘thing’ they just adore and highlights their best selves. I want my sessions to tell a story and make people feel great, and nothing brings that out more than seeing them at a sport, hobby or passion that is part of who they are and lights them up.
My sessions are about bringing out confidence and a chance for people to show different elements of themselves. It might be cricket, horse riding, art or cooking. Anything that makes the spark and enthusiasm for life flicker. Your kids can have a photography session where you get images of them in a setting which really shows off the many aspects that make up their personalities and real memories for all of you, not just about what they looked like at that age but who they were … even if they don’t go on to become a world-class cricketer or prima ballerina.
Having a passion and interests helps make resilient well-rounded kids. As an adult those times also hold really strong memories. Why not have some beautiful photos to capture all of that as well as some general portrait shots. They grow up so quickly, this is a chance to freeze time and capture their story so far.
