I have must have photographed thousands of children in the past. It is extraordinary how different the faces can be and how they change over the years. I find myself knowing exactly what angle to approach certain faces to get the realness out of them.
Having spent a decade on making sure I have smiley photographs of my clients children I thought I do the opposite. Working with window light and doing my own styling as well as painting backdrops and choosing models gives me a total control over the image.
