Photographer Hideaki Hamada documenting his children’s life

Camera life #3, by Hideaki Hamada

My friend Sol, from “Love for Pema”, was telling me some time ago how portraits could be one of the hardest types of photography because of the difficulty of finding good, non-artificial models. Our pose usually appears forced and unnatural, above all if we know that we are being photographed. On the other hand, children are still free of that “corruption” which makes them the cute little critters that everybody wants to see in pictures.

Hideaki Hamada is an amazing photographer from Japan that is doing something that I consider should be a parent’s duty: documenting your children’s life so you’re able show them in the future how amazing, cute and genuine they were, and to remind them that they were once those happy creatures that we all want to be.
You may have already seen Hideaki’s photos before because he’s been featured in many different photography websites and blogs around the world. If this is the first time that you hear about him, I’d recommend you check out more of his work in his flirck account, his blog and his website, although I warn you that you might die of a cuteness attack seeing his children, Haru and Mina.
This is such a beautiful and fun story: a father who starts photographing his children’s life and ends up having photography exhibitions abroad.
I hope you enjoy it!
