New work for @countryroad πŸŽ€πŸ’• Believe it or not it was storming outside when I took this image...amazing what a few flash heads and some great team work can do. Styling: @vivienvittadello | Hair: @julie.provis_makeupartist | Location: @photolocomelb #alexandrenaparker #countryroad

As photographers and creatives we have a responsibility. As photographers we take images of moments...of people...snapshots that don't save lives, or change the world but we do have the power to change how society portrays others. We have an obligation to think about one thing carefully...When we are photographing a child or a young person we must think about their age and how we are portraying them to the rest of the world. Our lenses are an extension of our vision and our subjects are looking to us for guidance on how to pose and what to do. Too often I am seeing images of children and young people (boys and girls) being portrayed as mini adults in shoots. I believe it's the photographers responsibility to make sure the styling, the poses and the interactions of the subjects are age appropriate. I don't believe children should wear any make up for a shoot, children should always be portrayed as confident and content (doesn't always mean they have to smile), young teenagers shouldn't be posed the same way adult models are.
If you are a parent of a child in the advertising/fashion industry don't be afraid to set boundaries or rules about what your child or young teenager will do on a photo shoot. Don't be afraid to speak up if you don't think they are being photographed in a way that best portrays their age.

Simple. Don't portray children or young teenagers as adults...because they're not adults.

Trying to make cabinetry design decisions...perhaps inspiration from Versailles is a bit much.!? πŸ˜‚ #alexandrenaparker #vsco #travel #renovation

A picture perfect Sunday morning created by @paigelanderson and I...although our Sunday mornings looked nothing like this and instead were spent cleaning up baby vomit and poo explosions! #alexandrenaparker #pretendsundaymornings #linen #pictureperfect

This little possum and I haven't had a great week. At 2 days old little Ruby's pediatrician picked up a slight click in her hips during a standard check. We booked her in to have an ultrasound at 6 weeks and it showed she had developmental hip dysphasia. We were then referred to an orthopedic clinic to seek treatment. This week she got fitted with a Pavlick brace to keep her hips in a 'frog' position for 12 weeks to ensure her hips develop correctly. At the same time my lungs decided to have a tantrum and I've had to start on 2 weeks intravenous antibiotics. This also meant I had to stop breast feeding while I am having this treatment. I was so upset to have to stop something that we both worked really hard to establish so I have decided to express every time I'm meant to feed her to try and re establish breastfeeding again when I've finished my antibiotics. Ruby is coping really well despite some massive changes all at once. I'm so grateful to have access to amazing health care for both Ruby and I. Wowie it's been a big week. 😞 On the plus side I'm really looking forward to getting back into shooting at the end of the month!!! βœ¨πŸ€— πŸ“Έ
