CHILD PHOTOGRAPHY

I once heard a professional photographer being interviewed on TV. At first I dismissed what he said as a load of rubbish: you know the usual 'you mustn't see the soles of a baby's feet, their clothes must be similar in tone to the background' etcetc but then he said one thing that has always stuck in my mind because I think he was spot on: 'If you want to capture a child's personality, zoom in on the child's face and when you've gone as close as you think you can go, make sure you go just a tiny bit closer!' This is how I work whenever I can! See here Charlotte at 2, the first time she ever helped us out in the garden repotting some plants!
