Every time a family with small kids book their portrait session with us, we tell them, “Please bring their favourite toys to the photo shoot, OK?”
Why, they’d ask. You see, a photo captures the child at that one moment in his/her life. She may be two and love Dora The Explorer. The tween boy is currently fascinated with his new drum set. Your little one-year-old’s favourite toy may be pots and metal scoops.
A few years down the road, these children will move on to other things – my guess is computers and the phone – but the art pieces you took at Louis Pang Photography years ago will always remind you of the time when the kids were little, when your life was different.
That’s why you should bring your children’s favourite toys.
That and because toys are colourful & they liven up the photos. They also help put the little ones at ease when they’re in an unfamiliar place.
