Photographing children can be seriously frustrating. Difficult. Impossible at times?

On Tio Julián's Birthday, I tried endlessly to get a photograph of his youngest daughter, Juliana. But she wasn't in the mood for photography. Normally if someone doesn't want a photograph taken, I won't pressure them. But photos of these children are really precious right now, and I knew her dad wanted some of her.

Nonetheless, I started out with several failed attempts.


Finally, I asked her if she wanted to take a photo. She snapped a shot looking straight up at Mauricio.


After that, she finally agreed to a few photos of herself.


I was trying to rush before she changed her mind, so they didn't turn out great. But it's better than nothing!


If anyone has any tips on taking photos of children, I'm all ears! :)
