Fifth in my “Why I Love This Shot” blog series is from my first official photoshoot with my cheeky munchkin niece. There were many “unofficial” photos taken before this date but this shot is from the first time my sister and I had a play with different backdrops and props. At one point I considered specialising in this style of photography but I learned that I was better at candid moments instead of posed ones.
And that’s why I love this shot. We had a few different costumes and props but the best shots from this shoot are when she’s laughing and doing her own thing. She’s an incredibly cheeky wee girl who is full of spirit and joy. This photo of her grinning at us always makes me smile.
