The Little People


Adults tend to deal with having their portrait taken in a number of ways, the most common being; abject fear, a fixed smile, or their own version of Blue Steel.  Capturing something of their true character can at times be something of an ordeal. Children, and in particular toddlers, are a joy. Blissfully unaware of society's insistence that we must always look fabulous they are just themselves. Relaxed, bored, happy or sad, it's all good. These are just a few of the hundreds of little people it's been my privilege to photograph at the Sunday Shoots.
