Backyard Play – Santee Children’s Photographer

I find that I’m photographing my children less and less. I get busy and my camera goes untouched for days on end. So I’m trying to make an effort to just grab my camera and shoot no matter how the kids are dressed, what they are doing, or how uninspired I may feel. Usually, just the exercise of getting out and pressing the shutter gets my creative juices flowing. And the kids can hopefully look at the photos later and see that they did play and not just pose for mommy’s crazy photographic visions. Often, I use this as an opportunity to think outside the box. I don’t want to interrupt my kids’ playtime. My goal is to just capture photos of them doing their thing, as if there isn’t really a camera in their face. For this little impromptu shoot, I grabbed my 80-200 mm zoom lens so I could stay back a bit and really truly be right in their faces. There were a few moments I was tempted to run in the house and grab my nifty-fifty, but I didn’t want to lose the moment, so I just took what I could get. That meant, I ended up with some pretty interesting angles and perspectives. At one point, I was on top of the monkey bars, looking down at them.
