Inspiration: Photographing your children

As a keen hobbiest photographer I often stumble on something while browsing the internet that I think would be perfect to share.
And this is one of them. A group of 14 very talented photographers in America decided to get together to document how they see their children growing up by starting a collaborative site called You Are My Wild.

Seriously, if you’re looking for inspiration to document a childhood this is your go-to site.
It’s really simple, the photographs are allowed to shine, and you clearly get a feel for how these 14 kids live their day to day lives.

Packed full of ideas on composition, lighting and quirky angles. Give it a look.

    Beautiful pics. Thx for the referral. Anyone who tries to capture the growth of their child is a hero in my books, but these guys are doing it in style!

  3. Gosh those are gorgeous shots! Thanks for the recommendation – I've just started a course with a great photographer and it's inspiring me and making me realise what awful pictures I take in equal measure!
