I was recently asked to shoot for My little Feet childcare who have two centres in Townsville. The owner of the centre wanted to capture images that –
• Showcase the facilities.
• Showcase the relationships the staff have with the children.
• Highlight how children happily play independently and with each other.
The images are to be used for the website and also social media and needed to be natural.
This shoot was so much fun! You can always count on children to make you laugh and keep things fresh. You never know what’s going to happen next. I find, the trick to photographing children is to set the scene and then allow the kids to bring the magic within the scene. Allowing the kids to freely play as they normally would gives the images more feeling and authenticity.
For me, the highlight of this shoot was being asked by a little boy if I wanted to stay for nap time. He told me I could sleep on the nap bed next to him 🙂
