Kids Photography

The times we spend with our families, especially our children, do not stay forever. Time passes by so quickly that it’s difficult to keep up. Kids, most especially, grow up so fast. So fast that the next thing we know they’re already all grown up and living life on their own. Thankfully, kids' photography can capture rare precious moments and help us relive those special times over and over through pictures.Family photography can bring a family closer together because photos are tangible proofs of how important each member of your family is. As all of you grow older, you’ll want to look back on and remember the great times you’ve had as a family. Aside from that, kids can grow up so fast. Before you know it, they’ll be attending uni and living independently on their own. So if you want to immortalize precious moments together, you should definitely consider hiring a kids' photographer.

The Importance of Kids Photography

Most people don’t realize the importance of photographs – until it’s too late. There are so many times I am told to put down my camera and enjoy the moment. But the thing is, later, it is these very images that people thank me for – memories that would have otherwise faded away.

As an kids photographer, there have also been so many times when I have met people who regretted not having a portraits of a loved one who recently passed away. Photos are a precious link to your past, and keep memories that would otherwise dim, stay bright and alive.

Building Self Confidence

Did you know that when you put up pictures of your children on the walls of your home, it builds their self-esteem and self-confidence? It’s actually scientifically proven!

In fact, it is so important that it deserves a complete section of its own!
Another client of mine told me how much her son loved seeing his photographs on the walls of her bedroom. He would go to the wall, pull up a chair, climb it and look at those pictures. My client had created a memory wall – where she has put up pictures of her son from the day he was born. Pictures of him alone, with their dog, with her and her husband, and more pictures of just him!
He would smile and ask her – is that me? Tell me that story – how was I born? What was I doing here? Oscar (their dog) loved me, didn’t he? Was I really that small?
He felt loved and wanted.
In recent decades, psychologists as well as other experts have carried out studies to see the impact of child photography on children.
For example, in 1975, a study was carried out by behavioural scientists, where a group of children in the fourth grade in London, UK, were given polaroid cameras and asked to take pictures of themselves over a period of 5 weeks.
The children were given assigned poses, and were also asked to take pictures in various compositions and expressing different types of emotions. Then, they were asked to make scrapbooks of their personal pictures once a week.

At the end of 5 weeks, the researchers made a stunning discovery. All the children showed a 37% improvement in behaviour patterns that signified self-esteem!
Today, there is a term called photo-therapy, which uses photography in psychological therapy sessions to help people heal.
That’s what putting up pictures of your children in your home can do. They grow stronger and more confident in the belief that they are loved and wanted, and they know where they belong and who they are.
