Footrace - Kenting

Children usually have oneof three reactions to my presence. The first is drop everything and run to see the the new friend.

Cute Stare - Pingtung

The second reaction is to freeze and stare. Ideally a cutely cross-eyed, ear-flopped-out by a big pink hat.

Grabaleg - Kenting

The third reaction is burst into tears and cling to the leg of the nearest family member!

Taiwanese parents are usually okay with pictures being taken of their children. In all three of these, the parents were present - and no, the father of the crying girl wasn't upset. He thought it was quite amusing.
I've read about lawsuits and potentially awful consequences of photographing anything but yourself. But I've found that parents are usually flattered if you think their child is cute, and more than happy to share. Also, if possible, getting an email or mailing address to forward them a copy of the pictures is both fun, and gives you a good reputation as a nice photographer.

lol. I think those's are every kid's reaction before some one new. I particularly like the photo on the middle. The girl is so nice. :)

Kids are great! Great shots recently...I was out of town and crazy busy so I haven't been around lately! Good job.
