I've heard it said that you should do one thing every day that scares you. Recently I did just that; I photographed some kids!
I have a hard time relating to kids, I feel a little uncomfortable and out of place around them and I don't understand their "communications". Now, put me in a room with a pack of dogs and I can tell you what's going on with them, and read their state of mind almost instantly. Kids, not so much.
That being said, I did manage to relax and have some fun with these guys. I think I may have captured some nice moments for the family as well.
So, yeah, I had a good time working with these kids, and I survived! I might even be talked into doing it again some day... Some day.
