People often think they don’t have time for beautiful portraits of their children.

They keep thinking this and all of a sudden their children have grown up and they are left with a few snaps.

This lack of time is an asset when it comes to photographing young boys. Young boys won’t ┬ápose and they are definitely not into slow photography so why not play to their strengths which is running around at a million miles an hour? At this speed, a lot of great photos can be taken!

The photos below from a mother and son portrait session were all taken within ten minutes.

In fact, it took ten times longer working out how to arrange the images after the event.
