If you are a photographer and a parent, your child is probably your favorite lil’ model. Photographer Christopher Urena recently had a baby boy, and he’s hoping to pass down the love for photography to him. So, he took a photo of him that melted my heart straight away. Meet Elijah Ferdinand, the youngest and the cutest little photographer you’ll ever see.
It was one of those moments when two articles collided in my day and struck a chord. The first was JP Danko’s here, on whether or not it’s ethical to use photos of your children for stock. The second was by Lucy Dunn, on The Pool, where she raises the question of ‘over-sharenting’. (Sharenting, for anyone who hasn’t yet encountered this hideous portmanteau, is the tendency to share your parenting experiences on social media, from potty-training successes to supermarket meltdowns.) In particular, Dunn is concerned about how little guidance exists for parents who are navigating the social media seas themselves.
