A Photographer’s Child

16 Oct

I feel really sorry for my child sometimes. He has a camera stuck in his face more often than not. For most of his life he has tried his best to turn away from the camera. Pushing it away or telling me “no” quite vocally and specifically. And this is because I don’t just take a photo or two (like normal mothers). I hound the poor kid. Muttering about aperture and shutterspeed while frantically turning dials and changing settings as I go. Taking as many exposures as my camera will allow. This is the life of the photographer’s child.

For the first time last week, the penny dropped and the photographer’s child suddenly realised that he could strike-a-pose for the camera. Taking photos and pulling funny faces is now such fun. Not so much fun for the photographer’s child’s mother.

But he is infinitely cute when he puts on (what he thinks is) his best smile. 17,973 fake smiles later I am finally rewarded with a real smile.
