A happy child will radiate happiness. That is why I want children to have a really good time here. No posing and sitting still, but playing and laughing. A good photoshoot is like a little party. That way the photos will turn out great.
By nature children are supposed to be a little shy to strangers. Being a little shy though is normal and good! Also when their parents are a little tensed that will have some effect on the children. That is normal too. Please don’t worry about that and trust your child and my experience in this. I guarantee you it will work out fine and if not you do not have to pay me. It’s that simple!
A child that comes in here and – instead of shaking my hand – calls “I don’t want to!” is absolutely right and is probably trying to tell us he or she is a little scared of what is going to happen. It is unknown to them and it it completely normal.
I understand and known how to deal with this in a respectful and fun way. I work with absolutely no pressure and will use humour and playing to get the job done spontaneously.
A child that hardly dares to come inside, is pushed by its parents into my studio, that will not look me in the eyes and ducks behind his mothers back. That is also perfectly normal behaviour.
The solution is to ignore this, don’t put pressure on the child and just sit, relax and talk a little. I know perfectly at what moment it is time to engage the child a little and invite it to come out of their shell.
Because children are curious by nature and I am not in any way dangerous it will work out fine, I promise.
Your child cannot sit still? Bursting with energy? Great! These are my favorite models. Lots of energy will give many poses and variations.
Patience, humour and understanding childrens needs and characters: these are the ingredients for a succesfull shoot.
Beautiful pictures and nice shoot are guaranteed by the way. In the past years I developed so much experience in working with children that I can guarantee you it will be a success. If not you can come back another day or cancel the booking without any costs.
