9 Steps to Capturing Your Child's Personality On Camera
One of the many reasons I love photography so much is it's ability to capture a moment in time that is fleeting. A moment you will not have forever but that you want to remember. Basically, my children's entire lives. I want to remember it, I want them to remember it. Unfortunately I have a terrible memory so I rely heavily on photographs to help me remember. This is a big reason I got into photography in the first place.
I really want us to remember this fun age my daughter is in as well as her cute room. So I decided we should do a photo shoot of her in her bedroom. It's a great location for any of your kids to have a photo shoot because it's their space. They're comfortable in their bedroom and it represents who they are. Besides, it will hopefully make them get it nice and clean for the pictures. Obviously you could do it outside but here's how I went about capturing my tween daughter's personality on camera:
Here are the pictures from our shoot. I hope they inspire you to get creative.
When we moved back to Utah from Texas, I let Belle help me with decorating her room. I knew that moving was going to be a difficult adjustment and I wanted her to be happy in her new space. It turns out she and I make a good little interior decorating team. She insisted on painting the walls hot pink. I chose a shade that was as bright as I was willing to go. She gave me a few ideas, Pinterest gave me a lot of ideas. I think it came together nicely and it is so representative of my fun-loving, bright, colorful daughter.
This bedroom and this photo shoot were a great collaboration between me and my tween daughter. I am so pleased with how all the pictures turned out. I love how they show who Belle is. She is fun, silly, cool, pretty, bright, and colorful in her personality. We had a blast together.
