I love the innocence of kids.  I think they have genuinely happy souls!  Everything is new to them and I love to capture their wonderment and amazement at things that seem totally normal to us but which are brand new and incredibly fascinating for them. 

I'm not  a great fan of posed shots although obviously you need to do some to get all the family in.  But with kids I much prefer to sit back and let them play in surroundings they are familar with to ensure they are nice and relaxed. I often use a long lens so they forget I'm there which alows me to get the more candid shots that you will see on this page.
