Every year, on the first Sunday of March in New Zealand we celebrate Children’s Day. Since the start of the tradition in 1999, the goal of the day is to show how important children are in our community. Five focus areas, developed in collaboration by government, communities and businesses aim to highlight the importance and needs of children in society, positive motivation, support of children and their development.
What has this got to do with photography? You may ask. Well, as the saying goes “Teach your kids the love of photography and they will never have time or money for drugs.” Today is a fun day for activities that start new traditions as well as continue old ones.
Kids remember the days they spend with their parents and families, real experiences. So why not integrate photography in all that?
