Shyon is a shy but smart little boy who I was excited to photograph. His exotic looks (thanks to his Jamaican/Persian ethnicity), pinch-able cheeks and mischievousness all contributed to why children 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 the genuine moments. He was in his element, playful, curious as to why this lady 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, rather you have to let them be comfortable as they are.
With a head full of curls and a shy genuine smile – what’s not to love? 🙂Read More»
