Like any mother and photographer, having a kid/s is/are a bonus. If there are things in photography that you want to try (e.g., lighting, poses, etc), the kids are your go-to models.
I for one is quite lucky that I have somebody to call my in-house model. But just like any other kids, there are days that she’s not in the mood to pose or rather be in front of the camera. But when the day comes that she’s up for it, I make the most of what I have.
I may have shot several pretty models and clients but she is still and will always be my number one.
