    Beach Kids

    I love going down the beach for kiddy shots.

    Often parents will freak out as they imagine the drama, the horror, the chasing, the water - but it's all good and kids will run away to play wherever they're at. At least at the beach, unless it's high summer, there's no gawkers or other kids to shoo out of the way. I like that.

    This shoot was all about a pic of the 3 kids for Nanna's birthday, and it's hard work to co-ordinate 3 kids to be interested, looking at you at the same time, and perhaps smiling, but I think we got it:



    Aren't they great ?
    They were gorgeous kids, and very funny.

    I don't think this next shot was quite what their mum was after, but I love it as it really summed up their personalities - the baby off exploring, the Princess blowing bubbles for the camera, and Mr Harry Potter doing stunt jumps off the bathing boxes. No, I did not photoshop him in, I have a dozen pics all similar - he would have kept stunt-jumping into the night, I think!




    Cracked me up.

    Great work and absolutely love the second one. I love it when you get this spontaneity and that triangular thing happening. Brilliant too that he is in the air, priceless shot!

    Wow, do you get sick of me going amazing photo because seriously I find all of them funky and breath-taking at the same time. The action photography is always a good option with those boys

    Oh the second one for SURE! When I find a pot of money and have you photograph my kids, I want that one, OK? Just telling you now in case I forget...

    That second shot is fantastic! While the first one is cute, I think I'd rather get the second shot!! You took a great shot of 3 kids all doing their own thing and make it look awesome!

    Janet said...

    yes, I love the second shot too - it has that sparkle and moment in time thing happening. I'm sure it will grow on the mum, it's the one I would want - even if I had to get the other one for nana. Actually I think our nana would want both!

    Last time I had photos taken of the kids I got a set of the ones where they both look at the camera and then I also chose my favourite which was of a toddler PL rumbling his big sister. For that reason i'd definitely buy the second one too!
