FAMILY FUN COVER!
Three-year-olds are a special breed of human. They are curious, independent, and fairly oblivious to the camera. I tagged along with 3-year-old Kaden and his Mom as they explored the northern New Mexican landscape of White Rock State Park and loved capturing his adventurous little spirit.
My approach to photographing children is to let them do their thing! As a former preschool teacher I learned very quickly you have to steer small children into activities, direct commands usually don’t yield the photogenic returns one would like. If you to get them engaged and enticed, they will take care of the rest, just be ready with the camera and anticipate the moments that will come!
