I’m a family photographer in a lot of senses. I shoot candid imagery for clients of themselves and their children interacting in the home environment. This image, however, is my own to children. Our new son Albie and Rosa.
I was just hanging around with the Fuji X100 and Rosa an Albie were playing on the mat. I looked over and – bam – Rosa very gently kissed Albie on his head. It was an unguarded moment. She is only three and its this type of image that we, as a family, will look back at over the years and remember the special moments.
I adore taking documentary type images of my children interacting with each other. The X100 affords me the chance to do this without the interference that perhaps a larger DSLR would.
My family is the single most important thing to me, and I always try to hunt out any parent/child interaction when I’m photographing weddings. I genuinely believe these moments, when captured, will become gold dust in the treasure chest of memories that we all hold so dear as we move through life. Its the moments in life that count.
The image was processed directly on my iPad. No computers involved. Technology! Clever hey?
No doubt, in a few months I’ll be photographing the squabbling over the toys!
