Embracing Gap-Toothed Smiles and Braces Children’s Portrait Photography

children's portrait photography

Picture this: you have been aching to set up a professional portrait photography session, but one or more of your children just lost a baby tooth and is now sporting a gap-tooth smile. Should you wait for the adult tooth to grow in, or do you capture the cute but gapped smile? Personally, I love taking pictures of children with missing baby teeth. Doing so allows me to photograph the precious moments of childhood that will be over before you know it! I feel the same way about braces, believing that they should be included in photos because they are an integral part of your child’s life at that moment. If you are still on the fence about moving forward with your session planning, see if I can convince you:

Capturing a Sweet Smile with Missing or Gapped Teeth

Children typically loose all of their baby teeth during their primary school years, gradually replacing them with permanent teeth between the ages of about six and twelve. Because of this, you should expect at least one of their yearly school pictures to feature a partially toothless grin! This is an adorable part of childhood that reflects their sweetness and innocence. Unfortunately, this time in their life will also pass quickly. Your child’s cute, goofy, or mischievous grin deserves to be captured on film so you can look back on it in the future.

The alternative is waiting to have professional portrait photography pictures until your child’s adult tooth grows in. However, the chances are that another baby tooth may have fallen out by the time a new adult tooth appears! Plus, if your child has siblings, visits from the tooth fairy will be a regular occurrence. Instead, embrace their uneven or silly-looking grins and cherish this time in their lives.

Feeling Comfortable with Braces in Pictures

Having braces can be a touchy subject, even though they are more common than ever before. Some kids feel self-conscious, and you might think that most parents would hesitate to book a portrait photography session during this time. In reality, lots of mums have told me over the years that they do want pictures of the braces! Many mums recognize that wearing braces is an important part of a child’s life and that the resulting images will become adorable keepsakes.

When it comes to high schoolers or adults who wear braces, the best thing to do during a shoot is to relax. Smiling naturally will look much better than trying to hide the braces. Doing that often results in a tight and awkward smile, not to mention the posture that comes from feeling uncomfortable about one’s appearance. Plus, you can always get updated images once the braces are off. In the meantime, however, there is no reason not to document and cherish this time and experience.

Finally, do not worry about any possible reflections or glares from the braces themselves. I am well versed in setting up shots so that there are no unwanted glares off of braces, glasses, or jewellery. The right lighting will keep every image looking great.

Celebrate Milestones and Make Fun Memories

Whether someone in your family has braces or is missing teeth, the image will be uniquely you, at that moment. You can look back on them and remember that time in your life, along with the fun experience of the session. You can also have extra, high-quality portraits printed to send to far-away family members who may miss out on these little milestones. I offer plenty of on-location advice and guidance to help everyone feel at ease. The portrait photography session will not be overly formal or complicated, and you will not have to perform or pretend to be having fun. In fact, I welcome and encourage kids and families to giggle, play, and have fun together during a sitting.

The more comfortable your family is, the easier it will be for me to capture your unique personalities, relationships, and bonds.

In addition, booking a session will help show your child that there is no reason to be ashamed of having braces or sporting a goofy grin. After all, no one else is really concerned about these things! If you waited until everyone family members teeth were perfect, you will miss their entire childhood. We can always take some non smiling relaxed images as well. Embrace all of the traits and features that make you “you,” and encourage your children to do the same. When you are ready, talk to me about booking a session. I cannot wait until you see the resulting portraits!

The Absolute Best Ages to Get Photographs of Your Children

laughing-babyIs there a perfect age when it comes to getting photographs of your children? You might be wondering this because you want to make sure each child has a great time while you can get gorgeous photos of them. I am here to tell you the perfect age to help you figure out when to get your children in your family photos. So what is the best age? All ages, of course! Let’s take a look.

Newborns Are Simply Beautiful

This is a gorgeous time with your child – right after he or she is born. You can capture stunning images of how small your child is, and capture those perfect moments before your child grows up. These are definitely portraits you will long cherish, and it will be amazing to look back at how much your child changed from the newborn session to later years. Simply gorgeous. 

You Can’t Go Wrong with Toddler and Small Child Photographs

Does it seem impossible to get photographs of your children when they are toddlers or small children (3 to 4 years old)? It can be a bit trying, but that doesn’t mean this is an age you should avoid! In fact, you will have some of the funniest, most adorable photos of your children when you get photographs of them around these ages. They all tend to be quite cheeky, which is always a joy to capture. 

The School Years are Absolutely Gorgeous

Going to school, having growth spurts, and losing teeth are all some of the most exciting moments for your school-age children. These ages are perfect to capture because you can get those missing-tooth photos, their pride in their school, and just watch them as they grow up in the photos. Capturing photographs of your children at these ages is amazing, especially if you get one each year, showing just how much they’ve grown over the years. 

Teens Love to Have Fun Photographs Taken

The teen years sure do seem like a very difficult time to get photographs of your children. However, these years are just as amazing and gorgeous as the earlier ones. You will know what your teen likes, which can make the session absolutely fun. We can go around throughout the city, capturing great, grungy shots or go to his or her favourite park. Doing what they want, and allowing them to wear their favourite clothing is a perfect way to ensure your teens have an absolute blast with the photographs. 

Any Age is the Perfect Age to Get Photographs of Your Children!

As I said, any age is absolutely wonderful when it comes to getting photographs of your children. You do not have to pass up this wonderful opportunity, so give me a call and we can chat about stunning family portraits you will simply love.

Create Adorable Memories: Children and Pets in Family Photographs

family dogI simply love family photography. You get the chance to capture gorgeous moments with your loved ones and create beautiful, long-lasting memories. There are many ways people can take family photographs whether with their prized items like boats or with your entire family here for a family reunion. There is another great way that I adore and it is always so fun for everyone – children and pets in family photographs. Sure, children and pets, especially together, can take the spotlight, but what an adorable spotlight it is! I am going to look at why you should have your children with their pets in your family photographs and which pets work best.

Why Should You Have Your Children and Pets Together in Family Photographs? 

There are many incredible reasons why you should have your children and pets in family photographs together. One of the best is because it is a great way to help relax your child and let them have an incredible time during the session. This is absolutely magical because it works with almost any age from young children to teenagers. When you let your child bring your family pet to the photo session, they will be very happy and that will make the session go smoothly. Everyone in every photograph will look relaxed and happy, and every single smile will be natural and genuine. 

Which Animals Work the Best in Family Photographs? 

Any animal can work, but it depends on where you want your family photographs to be taken. If you have a beautiful family cat that your child wants in the photos, it would be best to take the photos in your home. Unless, of course, your cat is trained on a leash, but this can be very rare! Dogs tend to work the best for combining children and pets in family photographs because they can go most anywhere and are always happy and excited. The great thing about including your family pet in your photos is that it truly can be any pet, even if you have one that others might consider odd.

The Best Tips for Working with Children and Pets

As I mentioned earlier, having your children and pets together can help create a nice, relaxed photo session. A great way to further that relaxation is to let your child dress in his or her favourite outfit, and let the child just have fun. This provides a great opportunity for gorgeous candid shots of your child laughing and smiling with your family pet; trust me, you will adore those photos! 

Choose Kiss Photography for Your Adorable Family Photographs, Today! 

If you would like to include pets in your photos with your children, then contact me and we can have a chat about your session. I can give you tips regarding your pets, and we can talk about any other pets you may have that you want to include.

Photographing Animals and Children: Gorgeous Family Portraits

Including Pets in Your Family Photography: Gorgeous Memories for All

Child Portraits: Getting the Best Photographs of Your Children at Any Age

hug-my-sisterI’ve been in the photography business for several years now, and one thing that I love doing is taking child portraits for families. I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to photograph children who are all grown up and have children of their own, and let me tell you, that is an amazing experience! They always talk about the portraits they have from when they were certain ages, and now want to get similar ones to compare to their children and create amazing memories. This is such a lovely idea, and I think it is perfect for all families to get child portraits. Let’s look a few other reasons why this is such a great idea!

Catching Those Beautiful Milestones

One of the best things about child portraits is that I am able to capture milestones, helping you remember them all in gorgeous, vivid detail. These milestones range from when your children first sit up on their own to their first teeth and when they lose those teeth. Every year has a milestone, and it is perfect to capture those, even well into the teen years and early twenties. It is never too late to get family photographs taken, and you and your children will love the photos as time progresses. 

Child Portraits Allow for Gorgeous Candid Shots

Getting child portraits at young ages gives you the opportunity to have stunning candid shots. Many people think that when their children are young that photographs will be too stressful, however if you simply relax and have fun, it will be a fun experience. I had one family where the young girl was at the age where she could run away and enjoyed escaping her parents. Her father would chase her, pick her up, and tickle her before putting her back under the tree. Those created some delightful, gorgeous photographs. I was able to capture her cheeky little grin with her little teeth showing. 

Photographs are Great Mementos for You and Your Children

I had one client that I photographed as a baby through his kid years, and he now has children of his own. Getting child portraits gave him the ability to see how similar his children looked at the same age, creating gorgeous mementos for all. I was able to capture stunning images of his children that were similar to his child portraits, as well as create new, wonderful images. He appreciates the photographs he has, and his children will love having all of theirs and his together. Getting photographs of your children throughout the years is a perfect way to create long lasting memories that your children, grandchildren, and so on will cherish forever.

If you are wondering whether or not child portraits are for your kids, I believe they are! Contact me today, and we can chat about photographs, and I can help you decide on great location spots and ideas for the portraits. I can also give you excellent suggestions on preparing your children for photographs, making sure the process is fun and relaxing for all of you. Contact me, today!

The Best Ages for Portraits of Your Children

Photographing Children With Special Needs: Part Two

Special-Needs-Child-2In part one of my “Photographing Children With Special Needs” blog, I focused on some personal stories of when I have done sessions for families with special needs children. My goal is to show parents it is a wonderful idea to get professional portraiture of their children, with no apologies or feelings of embarrassment. As I have said, I love photographing children with special needs because each child is so unique and inspiring. I learn quite a bit from these children, and they truly enrich my life. Now I am going to take a quick look at the process of photographing children with special needs, aiming to help set your mind at ease about getting portraiture of your children. 

Meeting The Child and Family

One thing that helps me as a photographer, the family, and the child is to meet each other before the session. It is a great chance for a child to meet me and not be surprised when I seemingly show up randomlywith a big camera pointed his or her way. It also is perfect because I am able to talk with families about what the child needs. Does the child need a certain toy or article of clothing? What environment would work best? It is best to take photographs of a child in areas where he or she feels comfortable. This helps to get some of the most gorgeous, natural shots and help the child not worry or get stressed by being in a new environment with a new person. 

Being Gentle And Friendly

Having a friendly demeanour and being gentle with the child is also something that is important. I love to interact with children, as much as they will allow and always respect their wishes. Creating a gentle and friendly environment is great for all children, but especially when it comes to photographing children with special needs. They need to feel as relaxed as possible, which is possible with photographers who are gentle and understanding.

Flexibility Is Quite Important

One of the things I sometimes hear from parents is that they feel embarrassed or worried because their child cannot sit still or is not one to cooperate very well. When photographing children with special needs, it is important to be flexible and go with what the child is doing. This is one of the best ways to capture stunning images and is really part of photographing children overall. Allowing children to be themselves is important to me because I feel these photos are some of the most natural and beautiful shots anyone can get. In part one of this series, I had a client who had a young autistic child whom I followed around a park and snapped photographs as he ran to various spots. It was quite a lot of fun, and involved the necessity to be flexible. Because of being flexible with the situation, I was able to capture some of the most gorgeous shots of this child, and his parents were overjoyed to get such wonderful shots. 

Photographing Children With Special Needs Is Wonderful!

As I have said in my previous post, photographing children with special needs is possible and is absolutely wonderful! If you have a child with special needs and desire to get gorgeous professionally done portraiture, please contact me today!

Getting The Best Portraits of Your Children

Photographing Children With Special Needs: Part One

Special-Needs-Child-1Many parents long to get portraits taken of their children, and many who have children with special needs find that this can be difficult. This can stop families from getting photographs taken of their children, which means that they will not have many memories in the future. Photographing children with special needs is possible (and an amazing experience) let me show you by sharing a few of my own stories with you. 

Photographing Children With Autism

Children with autism range in how they react to certain situations, making it quite interesting to learn new ways to photograph them. For example, I have photographed several children with autism, but for this blog will focus on two. These two are completely different, and I learned some new ways in which to photograph them, capturing wonderful images. One was a 14-year-old boy who had a very short attention span. He would run everywhere, which led his mum and I to do the session in their backyard. This proved to be spectacular for the family, and I got some incredible shots of him playing on his favourite play set and with his siblings. I even had them all jump on the trampoline because it was a great opportunity just to show them all having a wonderful time together, being completely relaxed. Such a great lifestyle shot, as well, for the family!

Another boy I photographed had a different attention span, and loved his picture being taken. We went to some gardens with his mum and sister, and I was able to capture some gorgeous shots. He would run to a spot he liked and turn around with a gorgeous smile. He gave me about 30 seconds to a minute to capture this before he ran to the next spot. It was quite a bit of fun for all involved! 

Photographing Children With Asperger’s

Another session I did was photographing a young boy with Asperger’s who did not give much eye contact and rarely showed emotions, even if he was incredibly happy. I went down to the beach with him and his family, and I encouraged them to bring along the family dog. This proved to be perfect for this child and helped me get some stunning photos of him playing and showing amazing joy. Making him comfortable and relaxed was the best thing to do in order to get these stunning shots. This is quite true of all children, especially those with special needs. 

Photographing Children With Special Needs Is Possible!

Do not worry if you have a child with special needs – photographing them is possible! It is very fun, and I always learn new, wonderful things. I have photographed children with Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, blindness, and other special needs many times. It is always an incredible chance to meet lovely people and watch these incredible children just be themselves. Contact me today to learn more about photographing children with special needs! I will be more than willing to help you figure out the best setting for your child and will make the process fun and relaxing. This little cutie in the portrait is Jireh my nephew.

Brisbane Settings for Photographing Children

Sept74The one truth that remains the same is that children would much rather participate in photographs when they are able to run around and be themselves. If they are in a studio, they feel confined and are oftentimes told not to touch anything. This stops them from enjoying the session, stifling them, keeping those gorgeous, natural looking photos from being taken. This is why shooting a session outside is a perfect idea for children. I am going to look at a few Brisbane settings that will work amazingly for photographing your children.

1. Big Trees And Caves For Exploration

Big trees and caves offer an excellent opportunity to allow children to pretend they are looking for fairies or dinosaurs. I love helping little girls look for fairyland and capturing their gorgeous smiles as they start searching. I remember telling one little boy that I thought there were dinosaurs in a small cave, he was quite excited, and I captured some stunning images. When you engage their imagination, you will get some of the most magnificent portraits. 

2. Climbing Trees

Climbing gorgeous fig trees or other trees is a perfect portrait opportunity. It is one that is unique, and it will also be wonderful for children. This gives them the ability to play and just be themselves without the stuffiness of a studio or posed shots. I am able to capture their cheeky grins and their beautiful personalities as they are climbing and playing. This helps distract your children from the fact that they are being photographed, which will help them not feel awkward as the portraits are snapped. By doing something like this, I am able to capture them in the best and most natural setting, creating excellent images that you will cherish forever. 

3. Natural Hiding Spots

When photographing small children who feel awkward standing in front of the camera or staring at the lens, finding settings around Brisbane with natural “hiding” spots will be a perfect portrait opportunity. This allows the kids to feel like they are hiding from me, which allows me to capture some adorable portraits of them peeking around the corners of old walls. This can work with old buildings and walls, trees, flowers – the possibility is endless. Whichever place we choose will be perfect to capture gorgeous smiles and adorable eyes staring out at me. 

4. Fields, Old Sheds, and Vehicles Are Perfect

I did one session with a family in a field and around some old sheds; it was gorgeous. I was able to capture the children running around the field, playing and having a wonderful time. The old sheds also offered incredible photographs that were simply stunning. Old vehicles are another great setting for children. I had one young boy who loved fire trucks and other vehicles. I was able to find a location with stunning old cars and trucks, taking his portrait there. The images turned out incredible, and he had a wonderful time. These are great ideas as they can let the child have a fun time, imagine different things, and just being relaxed overall. 

Find The Perfect Brisbane Setting For Your Children

Finding the perfect Brisbane settings for your children is great to capture some stunning images. Contact me, and we will chat about the various locations that I think will be perfect. If you have any questions or have your own ideas, I am willing to answer and listen! Contact me today to set up a superb portrait session for your children.

Getting Beautiful Photographs Featuring Children with Cerebral Palsy

How To Get The Best Portraits Of Your Children

kids-photoAs we all know, getting family portraits is important for all families, and portraits can be wonderful fun. You might be wondering how to prepare your child to get the best portraits. Should you dress them a certain way or go to a certain location? This blog is going to explore how to get the best portraits of your children, giving your family some incredible portraits for your walls and portrait books. 

Every Family Is Different

The most important thing for families to remember is that every child is different in his or her own way, much like each family is different. Your children and family may be like one family I photographed; they loved getting up at the crack of dawn and wanted a session on the beach just as the sun was coming up. This was the first time I have done something such as this and I have yet to do anything similar since, but the family really enjoyed it. The portraits turned out stunningly and really captured the family’s personality. Now, if your child is more of the quiet, studious type, make sure the session is quiet and not over the top. A large, noisy portrait session could lead to your child becoming stressed, making it difficult to capture his or her true personality. Always make sure the session will match your child’s likes and dislikes in order to get the best portraits. 

Best Portraits Of Your Children: Time Of Day and Locations

The time of day is important with children because some may need to take a nap in the afternoon or some, like many teenagers, may not be awake until the afternoon hours. You know the best time of day for your children, and I work with all schedules to make sure I can get the best portraits of your children. Another aspect of getting incredible portraits is finding locations that work great for everyone. One of the best ways I have found to take photographs of teenagers who do not want their portraits taken is to have them wear their favourite clothing, even if it is jeans and a t-shirt. I will then put them in front of scruffy looking wall and snap various portraits. This worked very well for one client; the teenage son did not want his portrait taken, but as soon as he saw one of the portraits he wanted to hang it in his bedroom. 

Give Your Children Food Before Portraits

Whether your children are in their teen years or if they are very young, feeding them before a portrait session will help it go smoothly. I always recommend parents to have a meal before the session and then provide the children with a snack right before the portraits. This is the best way to ensure that I can capture their cheeky personalities and get some incredible portraits your family will love for years to come. 

Getting the best portraits of your children is easy to do if you stick with their personality and make the process fun. I am willing to help you figure out different locations and settings that will work great for your particular child if you are uncertain about where to go. Contact me today to set up a family portrait session!

The Best Ages for Portraits of Your Children

hugging-little-brotherDiscovering the best ages to get portraits of your children seems difficult with people giving you their various opinions. I find that each year of a child’s life is simply precious and beautiful to capture, no matter how difficult it may seem. I am going to explore the various ages in this post and explain how each age is perfect in its own special way. 

Newborn Through Toddler Are Beautiful Years

This is a gorgeous time to capture. Newborns always look incredibly different from any other photos taken as they begin to grow. Capturing this is important for your portraits books and for your children to look at when they are grown with children of their own. As they grow into toddlerhood, they start getting their own distinct personality with cheeky grins and gorgeous shots ready for me to capture. Some are able to walk and run on their own while others will use things like a tree root to pull themselves up to stand. This is gorgeous to capture because they look so proud and happy. 

Ages 3 to 4 Are Difficult To Get Portraits of Your Children

These ages can be difficult, but you can still have fun with your children and get wonderful portraits. Many children who are 3 or 4 years old tend to be easily upset because they are starting to become more independent, yet still need help. The best way to get wonderful photos is to interact with your children and make them laugh, enjoying the experience. It is possible, I promise! These portraits of your children will be ones that you cherish for a long time. 

Ages 5 and 6 Are Simply Perfect

These ages are great for capturing gorgeous smiles with teeth missing and children just having a wonderful time. This is the time right before and just as they start school, giving them much excitement and joy because they are growing up. This is also a great time for family portraits because at these ages most children are willing to pose for the camera and tend to be very cheeky throughout the process. 

School Ages Are Stunning

What a wonderful age to capture! School ages are vast and children change so much throughout these years. One of my clients used to get photos every year of her son to capture these changes, which provided her with a stunning collection. Throughout these ages, your children are getting taller and growing up so much and this is something you will want to capture and remember. When they are older, they will be thankful for all of these wonderful portraits. 

Teenage and University Years Are Just As Important

I am sure you hear that teenagers are the most difficult to photograph or that university ages are too old for portraits, but I disagree. I think these years are just as special as the previous ones and there are many things you can capture. You can have your teenagers pose with their pets or a prized possession and many students on their way to uni will gladly take a few portraits before leaving. 

Always Get Portraits of Your Children

Never shy away from getting portraits of your children taken. You will want to remember these years and have photographs for your children to show their children. Once they have grown up, this is a perfect opportunity for a family reunion shoot to capture everyone at their current life stage with all of their children. Contact me today to set up portrait sessions of your children.

3 Tips for Getting Better Photographs of Toddlers

Photographing Animals and Children: Gorgeous Family Portraits

dog-boy-portraitW. C. Fields once said, “never work with animals or children.” Sometimes this phrase is true but most times, this is a fun experience for the family and the photographer. Animals and children are fun to work with and can create much laughter throughout the process. Pets are just like family and in many cases they are just like our children. Family portraits with your animals are great ways to remember them and have a wonderful time. I am going to talk about how photographing your animals and children will create wonderful images for you and your family to enjoy.

Myth: Photographing Animals and Children Is Difficult

They are not as difficult as many say and I have captured gorgeous gorgeous family portraits of children with their pets many times. The important thing to know is that different animals may require different locations to keep them safe and happy. For example, cats are easier to photograph when they are in their own homes so a family session in your home would be the best. This way your precious kitties feel safe and relaxed and this will keep them from running away from the camera.

Unsurprisingly, dogs are some of the easiest pets when it comes to family portraits. They are always ready to look adorable and are typically very well behaved. If you happen to have a dog that is quite energetic, you can always let them run around the park or the beach for awhile to tire them. This will help keep the dog more behaved and easier to snap wonderful shots.

Why Should You Include Your Pet In Your Session?Sept75

There are many reasons to include your adorable fluffy friend in sessions. There is the tragic reason that your precious pet will not live as long as a human. A client of mine had some adorable pet rats and they brought them along to their family’s session; a few months later one of the pet rats passed away, making the portraits even more special to them.

On a happier note, your pets are a major part of your family and you want all of your family members in your portraits. This will create gorgeous and adorable photographs that will last ages and will be a great way to have fun with your children. This is a memory your children will have forever.

You and Your Family Will Be Relaxed and Happy

The best thing about having your furry family members come along for your portraits is that you will all be incredibly relaxed and your smiles will be genuine. Photographing your animals with your children will create gorgeous and happy shots. This will also help with reluctant teenagers because they will be more willing to participate if their special pet is with them.

Pets of all kinds are welcome to any of the family sessions I do, whether it is a pet snake, a bird, a cat, a dog or a horse. We had a pet Doberman when our kids were younger and he was very much a part of our family so I understand the importance pets play in our lives. Bringing your pets along to your family session will create images that you will cherish forever! Contact me today and we will discuss setting up a session with you and your family – furry family members included.
