Like many things, in order to do them well, and get the results you are happy with, you have to give it time. Time to allow ideas to unfold and time to allow the unexpected to happen. That’s not to say I can’t work fast when required – to capture a fleeting moment, or shoot a portrait of someone who literally only has a couple of minutes. But, when you’re working with children, and when they are happy to treat a photo session as an opportunity to play and explore, then magic can happen.
