I find that I take a lot of photographs of my son with my phone, rather than getting out my camera. There are a couple of reasons for this, the first being that Henry sees me get my camera out and he runs!
Secondly, is that I am too lazy to get my camera out!
But, I need to make more of an effort. On the first day of school every year I have always taken a portrait of the two of us. It is amazing to see his growth over the years since he started Kindergarten.
I was inspired to do this by Marzena Wasikowska’s images of her son that she made every year.
Time is something that fascinates me and what makes photography so important, on a historical level.
Anyway, it just so happened that Henry wanted to be photographed as a skater and so I pounced on the opportunity to photograph my dear boy.
How often do you take proper photographs of your child/ren?
