Photography tip: tell a story!

Bonjour!

When it comes to photographing our kids most of it is documenting memories. Yes we want the cute pics where everyone was posing (well as much as kids do pose :-)), but we want to tell stories, a little bit like we would write in our journal something funny they did that day. What's why when I photograph my kids on an everyday basis (see my Pics of the Day on Facebook) the most important for me is not the technical part of the photograph anymore but the story behind it. 

In the example below everything happened very fast and time for me to grab my camera (I always keep it handy though!) and the action was already almost over. I then decided that it was more important for me to get several shots showing the whole story than having a single perfectly focused, exposed image! I kept shooting until the "action" was over, and at the end selected three pictures which I think represent perfectly what happened. And I love them because of what and who they represent. They are a memory of an interaction, of a good laugh I had with my kids...
