Photographing your children? There are two lens options for this. You can get up close with a wide-angle lens or you can keep a slight distance and shoot candid images with a zoom/telephoto. It will depend on the child. Some will become self conscious as soon as you lift the camera to your eye, while others will start showing off.
The best images, capturing the spontaneous joy of the child, will result from them being distracted by having something to do, like a game or a puzzle. An outdoor location is ideal as any fill-in flash you use won’t be off-putting. Then, let them get on with their activities while you snap away
