    The return of old friends


    Sometimes I get the opportunity to photograph the same kids again, which is a great treat – time has passed and you get to see how they’ve changed since the last time. And if the kids remember you, it can help make them feel more comfortable more quickly.

    So I was very happy recently to meet up again with Lucas and Kira, whom I photographed first several years ago now.

    We headed off to a trail with their mother, and both kids soon relaxed as I let them run around with only minimal instructions or intervention.

    That’s when you see kids as they really are, and as you can tell, Lucas is thoughtful and a touch reserved, while Kira is more open and friendly.

    All these were shot with the Canon 5D II and the EF 85mm f/1.8 – if I could only have one lens to carry on my portrait work, the 85mm would be the one I kept.

      Its a joy to meet up again with returning clients especially working with kids. Their characters develop so much between shoots and you are right in approach to stand back and let them be themselves. It always delivers winning results!
