The best way to photograph children is in their own environment. I love when kids are able to be themselves and have fun. Here is a shoot I did for little Tommy. I absolutely adore this boy. When I showed up for the shoot, he was acting so shy. He kept running away from me and hiding. I just hung out a while so he could get used to me. Finally he warmed up to me, and I was able to sneak a few shots of him smiling. What a honey!
