It's been a long time since I photographed my own children with anything other than the phone or point and shoot. They're 12 and 9 now, and having grown up acutely aware of the camera, have decided enough is enough! A new lens meant that I had the excuse to rope them in for a few test shots, but as you can probably tell, they weren't super happy about it... The centre photo is real life around here...the unguarded moment. As always, with any photographs taken around our house, the cat features heavily. From the swishy tail in Morgan's pic, to happily taking centre stage (and all the cuddling he can get) in the middle photo. He's a rubbish model though, being cross-eyed means he's never looking at the camera properly!
