This is an image from a candid shoot I did over the summer. I prefer candid photography for children for many reasons but the main one is their sense of adventure. I love capturing the natural expressions as they explore this wonderful world. These tiny busy hands and the joy on her face are priceless and something her mother will want to have recorded many years down the line instead of those cheesy uncomfortable studio smiles.
Thank you Maureen for the spotlight!

    I couldn't agree with you more, Regenia. I have both kinds of photos of my kids, but the ones I like best are the candid shots I took myself. This one's a "honey". Hope you had plenty of towels around. Lol
