The ten minute mother and son portrait session or why being time poor makes for terrific portraits of mums and their sons

People often think they don’t have time for beautiful portraits of their children.

They keep thinking this and all of a sudden their children have grown up and they are left with a few snaps.

This lack of time is an asset when it comes to photographing young boys. Young boys won’t ┬ápose and they are definitely not into slow photography so why not play to their strengths which is running around at a million miles an hour? At this speed, a lot of great photos can be taken!

The photos below from a mother and son portrait session were all taken within ten minutes.

In fact, it took ten times longer working out how to arrange the images after the event.
