John from Eureka, United States

Taking photographs of children can be enjoyable but difficult sometimes. I've used reference photographs of children for my illustrations and their attention span can be short. My grandchildren are coming over this weekend so I can enjoy this kind of fun. Good action in this photo.

10 Apr 2009 12:44am

@John: Yes, children are fun to photograph but only if they want to be! ;) My girls are so used to the camera that they ignore me taking photos. This way I can get those wonderful candid shots that I like the most! I hope you enjoy the visit with your grandchildren and are lucky to get some wonderful shots of them. :)

Marion from Cincinnati, United States

Ah, Easter shots! You are right....I am not sure I will get around to those one time :) I would love for you to continue this series after Easter :) Great shot!!!
