If you ask me, photographing babies and children is one of the most difficult tasks. It’s not easy to have them to pose, and it can be quite challenging to make them smile sometimes. But photographer Jonathan Suckling sure has a unique way of making their little models smile and laugh. Heck, this goofy dancing even made me smile!
We stumbled upon this video on an Instagram account filmmking. It shows Jonathan dancing his heart out at the beach while photographing a baby in her mom’s arms. Just look at that happy face and that excitement. Both in him and the baby. :)
Going through Jonathan’s Instagram, I realized that this New Zealand photographer does this quite a lot. He describes himself as a “photo ninja” and “interpretive dancer,” and I’d say that he sure is both. He takes beautiful photos but also wants to make wedding photography fun again. And if you check out his videos, you’ll conclude that he does a great job at it.
In my opinion, this is one of those things that make a dedicated photographer. He does his absolute best to make his models laugh and relax – both the kiddos and the adults. He doesn’t care if he will look silly, he apparently loves his job and wants to take the best photos he can. And whether someone’s a photographer or not, being goofy and having awesome dance moves are still good traits to have.
