In true me fashion, here I am getting to a photo wrap up of Addie’s February ’round about the mid of March. Look for March’s update around tax day (ooh, taxes, have you sent yours off?) Documenting my child’s childhood aside, I have to say that having my camera in my hands everyday has made such an enormous difference in how I feel with it in my hands. I’ve always loved it and it’s always felt like a natural extension in my hand, but using it everyday and having it with me everywhere has allowed me to capture little moments that would have otherwise passed by.
One of the biggest pieces of advice I can give you when it comes to photographing older kids is to never ask them to pose for you. Have your camera ready and right by you so when something does happen you’re ready. Kids hate having cameras in their faces, and even the ones that don’t mind it tend to get awkward when they know it’s pointed at them, Addie included.
Here’s Addie’s February, in 20 candid photos.
