I love taking pictures of children... the expressions, the wonder in their faces and the magical moments are countless.
When I arrive at the location of your choice - somewhere familiar, comfortable and fun for your child - I always spend time playing and chatting, so that we can really get to know each other. Like this, I can gradually disappear into the background and take pictures of a child who is completely at ease - in a way that just wouldn´t be possible in a studio setting.
Working in pure black and white film, I always look for the absolutely natural shot of your child. Whether he or she is climbing a tree, lost in thought or giving you a loving cuddle. In fact, I often get the perfect picture when I´m also up in that tree or racing down the garden! What ever it takes, I will capture that moment forever.
I believe that every photographic "session" should only be fun - a time that you and your family will look forward to repeating as your children grow. One of my greatest joys is when I hear that the children I´ve photographed over the years have insisted on taking their pictures with them when they leave home!
