Recently, a photographer friend of mine noted that “children and animals are the worst things to try and photograph.” I was like, “What. Are. You. Talking About?!” I think that this common sentiment is rooted in an old school mentality that children should be seen and not heard, should behave, and should fit into a rigid ideal for what society deems “appropriate behavior.” While I’m all for perfectly posed toddler photos, and the rare unicorn that they are, I think that it’s time we get real about who these little people are that we share our lives with. I don’t want to capture a picture of your little tiny kid doing anything other than being exactly who they are meant to be in that very moment that I’m with them. I don’t mind getting my clothes dirty, getting in the grass, playing in the leaves, or chasing them around. Photography is about freezing a moment in time, one that we will never get back. Why would we want to remember that as anything other than it truly is?
