Fira Mikael Kwan

My name is Fira Kwan, I am a Indonesian born chinese. I love the world of photography and started getting serious in 2019. Photography is a hobby when i retired and since I became a full time housewife. After taking more photos and trying different genres, I fell in love with photography of people, especially children. Taking photos of kids provides a new challenge all the time. Children have innocence and joy in front of the camera that is not made up. Hope I can continue to produce interesting photos. This is a brief about myself. Thank you for the opportunity

Agnieszka Kucinska

My name is Aga. I’m the mother of two boys, wife and owner of a cute dog. A pedagogue by education, working in the profession. Born in Poland, and for 16 years living in Great Britain. The love of photography came to my heart many years ago but it was at the beginning just a passion. I started my real adventure with photography in 2018, being at the Children's Photography Academy. The  winning photo "Together" was created two years ago during one of our daily walks with the pooch. At that time, I had no idea how to process this photo and so it was on the computer waiting for me to be ready for it. Here You can see my two reliable and inseparable models: my younger son and his best friend Max.

whilst taking on the role as a summer camp photographer in the USA in 2015.
After my two children were born, I decided to move forward with my hobby and have worked hard to develop the skills necessary to start my new career. I have two sons who regularly model for me as well as taking on some 'ambassadors' for my business to help me learn and spend time correcting and improving.

First of all, thank you so much for this reward! I'm Callie, a photographer from Lincolnshire.

I look forward to entering my new images into this wonderful group.

Photographer of October 2021:

Katarzyna Kapała

Thank you very much for such a great honor as the title of the photographer of the month. I did not expect it in the first year of my photographic adventure. I am glad that it takes place in October, in the month when my son was born. He is the inspiration for me, the main protagonist of my works and a personal, very committed model for his young age. In October, I focused on sessions highlighting the colors of this wonderful time which is autumn. I have planned sessions with animals because with them my child is really happy, he doesn't have to pretend. He is having a good time, and I only capture these moments and in such natural photography I feel best as a photographer.

Create Your child modelling portfolio with Moose Photoshoots, children's photographer from Gibraltar

If you are convinced of the extraordinary beauty, personality and modeling career for your child, create your child modelling portfolio with me. I specialize in children's photography and many of my photos have been featured on the pages and covers of children's magazines such as UK Prestige Magazine or International Kid Model Magazine.

For such a session, it is best to develop concepts in advance to choose the right outfits and choose the right place for photos. It is best for children and adolescents to be professionally groomed or with make-up (only if they are teenagers). Parents are always welcome as assistants and support for their children. Because the most important thing is their well-being and a sense of security.  They can also be very helpful in properly illuminating the scenes or making small models laugh.

If you want to create your child modelling portfolio with me, do not hesitate and write to me.


When is the best time to take pictures of your child?

First of all, when the child is well rested and can easily concentrate. Ideally, it should be a day off from work or school. Then we meet at the agreed place, preferably two hours before sunset (this is the best daylight for photos).


What is the best place to create your child modelling portfolio?

They are all allowed. It can be a selected beach, forest, park or even city streets. It is best to choose a place that will give you a lot of possibilities for the chosen concept of the photo. Will it be a city session, a session with a pet or promoting a selected brand of clothes. There is one important rule. We don't take pictures in direct sunlight. We do not face the model to the light which, for example, shines through the leaves.


Who can attend such a session?

Virtually every child with exceptional beauty and a positive attitude. Ideally, however, it should be older than 7 months and able to sit. It is easiest to work with children over 6 years of age. They are able to listen and follow the photographer's instructions.

If you have any questions about building a portfolio for your child, please write to me.





Magical Childhood Photography Awards – September 2021

Photo of September 2021 and first place belongs to:


My name is Ornit, I am a photographer from Israel and a mother of three; two boys (12, 5), and a girl (2). Since I was 16 I have taken photos, in those days it was 36 images on film strips. I could never see the picture, not until I got into the dark room. It was very hard for me to move to a digital camera, but when I did it I fell in love with the tech. To see the image in place is magical every time for me. I have a studio at my home town Rehovot, but love to take photos of nature as well. In this photo I took my baby girl Yaara on a magical cotton field, for her two years old birthday.
Thanks  for the honor to have  first place award.

Third Place:

Marcin Błoch

Hi! My name is Marcin Błoch, I live in Poland in Rojów. My adventure with photography began about 10 years ago, when I fell in love with photographing insects.  I devoted literally every free moment to it. In 2014, my son Wojtek was born, and since then I have also started to capture his growing up. With time, other children started to appear in front of my lens, and I quickly realized that I would like this to be my job. In 2018, I gave up macro photography and focused only on photographing kids. In photography, I love to play with light and paint enchanted pictures with the help of nature touched by the sun. 5 months ago our second son, Leon, was born and as soon as he starts to sit on his own, you will see him in my portfolio together with Wojtek.  My beloved wife, Natalia supports me.  Together we look for places to take photos and often come up with some nice ideas.  I am very happy that my photo came here.  I have always dreamed about photos in the heather, but only now I managed to find the perfect place ? Wojtek loves the forest, mushrooms and walks, so when I suggested photos in the heather, he did not hesitate for a long time, and additionally beautiful light appeared.

Photographer of September 2021:

Lucas Rodrigues Dutra

My name is Lucas Rodrigues, I'm a photographer for the LUCCA Group, I work with artistic and advertising photography in Brazil, in the context of children. I have a degree in graphic design and have worked with illustrations and digital painting. I see in photography a way of recording moments and creating scenes of children and their childhood, characteristics of this phase and also how this essence of discovering the world, being innocent and emotional can be something very valuable in photography. I bring a more beautiful and enchanting result when I think in an artistic and poetic way how to work these records, thinking with the manipulation, colors, lights and shadows to generate true masterpieces, this is the world I built, a world of enchantments.

Magical Childhood Photography Awards – August 2021

Photo of August 2021 and first place belongs ex aequo to:

Callieanne Jayne Major

Hi everyone. My name is Callie and I live in a little village in Lincolnshire. I would first like to say a massive thank you for this award, this is my first ever award and I am so proud of this image. Photography has always been a passion of mine but once my daughter was born 3 years ago it really gave me the confidence to take more photos. She has been my main model but for the past year I have started using my camera on others. So so nerve wrecking but I'm glad I pushed myself. The girl in the picture was actually from a model call, she was amazing. Winning this has now given me nudge to enter more. Thank you once again!

Third Place:

Sylwia Glazer

Hi, my name is Sylwia Glazer, I live in Sieradz.
The adventure with photography began some time ago, with nature photography. Recently my passion turned into work and it turned out that I love it even more.
The artistic world has always had a big influence on me. The world of painting, sculpture or photography stops time for me.
Portrait, conceptual or staged photography can take me into a different world of emotions and the magic I want to show happens in my head.
Recently, I have also run individual workshops for photographers and I am honored to be chosen and I can communicate how beautiful photography can be and what can inspire. How to look at the light, colors and rhythm in a photo and how to create this world and what happens in my heart when I allow myself to be fully creative.
There are a lot of things that inspire me and I want to tell about it with my photography.

Photographer of August 2021:

Aleksandra Uzdrzychowska

My name is Aleksandra and I come from Poland.  I live in a small town near Opole. Photography has always been my great passion, but it was limited to photos taken with a smartphone or in gusts with a camera with a built-in lens, in addition to automatic settings. Despite this, I always heard that I have an eye. A year ago, I decided to transform my passion into something more. I started from scratch, learning how to use the camera. After that, everything happened very quickly. Apparently, photography was for me, because it suddenly turned out that all my obsessions, which make my everyday life so difficult, work perfectly in the world of photography. I know that there is still a long way ahead of me, but I set out on it with a smile on my face, excitement, how great adventure awaits me and gratitude, because the camera not only became my third eye, but opened the other two for me. Thank you very much for the award, it is a great foundation for me and motivation for further work and development.

Gibraltar elopement with Moose Photoshoots - Wedding photo session

I wanted to tell You more about wedding with me in Gibraltar.

Maria & Eoin have come to elope from Ireland. It was just the two of them for this most romantic event. They selected a package with natural photos. They booked me for 2 hours (normally, my wedding package has 1,5 hour and only one place for the photoshoot after the ceremony) and received 50 photos.

Wedding photo session - Gibraltar Marina and Europa Point

During this time we took some photos at the ceremony in the registry office and then we did a photoshoot. First in Gibraltar Marina and than In Europa Point, where the lighthouse is. Wedding was in the middle of the day, so the photos are very bright, full of lights, shades. Let me show them their story through my photography.


Before and after - fine art wedding photography

I'm presenting to You one photo that I have made in two versions. One natural one and one with a vintage style edition. As You know- I'm a fine art photographer, so I can change the photo into a fairy tale picture.


Next time I will present to You the same package with a different couple that trusted me and choose a fine art photo edited package. You will have the possibility to compare and decide which one You like most.

Permission to publish my photos

I need You to be aware that without Your permission to publish my work and Your photos every package costs more. (It is written on my website and in the contract as well).  You probably want to know - WHY? Let me explain.  I’m a photographer and it is very important for me to have the opportunity to share and show my work. I’m spending a lot of time putting my heart into Your pictures. So let’s say that those who agree that I publish have a discount. And those that want to keep their photos private pay normal prices.
That’s why it is very important to understand Your possibilities with me and select the best package for Yourself.

Magical Childhood Photography Awards - June 2021

Photo of June 2021 and first place belongs to:

Beatriz Ostos Charro

My name is Beatriz, I am from Madrid and a mother of three, two twins girls which are 23 years old, and a boy whose 18.
I studied History, I always loved all kinds of art, when I started photography was analogic, I had a Minolta with a 50mm and used to photograph architecture, I was not interested in portraits until I had my daughters, I didn’t want to loose any thing and I could not stop photographing them while they grew up, I wanted to keep those moments that they are not going to remember when they are old unless I give them; pictures are memories that we can keep forever.
When digital photography started I bought I small camera, but I had no idea of how to download the files, my husband had to do it for me, I thought it was very difficult and for a long time I only used the little camera in automatic mode.
When I decided to learn digital photography my children where big enough for me to have more time for myself after working, since then i am constantly learning; I think I am taking the pictures that I would have loved to do with my own children, I like their world of imagination, happiness and innocence.
Due to instagram, Facebook and other platforms in internet I found an incredible world of artists who inspire me, I feel I have much more to learn and every day I try to do it better; groups like this are a good chance to improve and to know others people work.
Alberto is a restless loving boy of 5 years old, I knew him last September during a shooting I did with his sister and him, I think he is a perfect model for my pictures,  I don’t need to tell him what to do,I let him being his self while I shoot.
Thanks Marta for this opportunity, for me it is an honor to be best picture among the amazing work in this month.

Third Place:

Monica Hańczyc

Hi, I'm Monica,
I come from Poland but I live in the United Kingdom.
My photography journey started when I was 17 (2007), but it really begins to be my hobby and work in 2010 when I first bought a DSLR camera. Since then I went through all of the types of photography but still, my favorite is to photograph people. I love to see emotions in pictures, the magic of children playing outdoors, the love showing on couples photoshoots, all that is very fleeting and important at the same time. Using photoshop for children's photos, allow me to add a little bit of magic to each picture. Always when I can take pictures of my clients I'm feeling very honored that they choose me.

I love working with little kids under the age of 6, I feel they are more natural, I work outdoors so I love to let them do whatever they want and take pictures of them just exploring and playing, I love when they forget about me and my camera and just have fun.
I took this picture a few months ago, next to this field was a field full of almond blossom, it was so dreamy, I took a lot of pictures there and at the sunset we went to this wheat field, there were a few white flowers, but not too much, so I asked her to pick a flower and that's how this photo was created.

To face the next moment
To choose.
I could just breathe.
My handsome son was a perfect model for this. And my new Fox bonnet arrived it just had to be used!
Although now he is getting sick of his Mama taking his photo
