Personal Photography Project // Matilda

A Personal Photography Project
Most of you know that I LOVE photographing newborns. You don’t have to direct them to do anything at all! They will allow you to position them the way you want them and just sleep peacefully (OK, mostly sleep peacefully!). I have taught myself posing, settling and editing and I just adore these sessions.

So, when I decided to take an online class on photographing older children, I was nervous! When I have photographed children in the past, I have allowed them to do their own thing in the park. Capturing moments of them playing, laughing and just being a kid!

Nothing like a posed portrait session.

Meg Bitton is an amazing child photographer from NYC who offers online workshops that can often sell out in minutes. The workshop I enrolled in specifically taught in studio set up and editing.

After completing the online course, I asked my friends for their assistance and I am very grateful to a friend of mine for lending me her daughter, Matilda, 6 years old.

Matilda was an absolute superstar being a little model for me! We set up the session in my lounge room and I gave her so many directions…..shoulders back, tilt your head, smile, don’t smile…..and she did everything I asked without question. As a result I was able to capture these gorgeous images. Some may look serious but I promise there was a lot of giggling going on especially when we got the hairdryer out as a fan!

Posed child portraits may not be for everyone, but I loved taking on this personal project and I am so grateful for Fiona and Matilda for helping me out.
