I love this shot – the smile on his face is real – he’s having a ball. The pool edge makes a nice line and a sort of frame across the shot. Despite the overhead view, it is very real and personal.

This shot is also what I like to call an “environmental portrait” – a portrait of a person in situ┬ádoing what they love.


I also love this shot – the view is very unconventional, and makes him larger than life, like a super hero. He seems ready to fly. The sky is a nice contrasting color to him, and there are no distracting background. Your eyes are drawn to him.

Child in red

I like this because of the contrast between the red jumper and the binky in yellow. Cropping the top of the head isn’t the greatest.
