My daughter always and still likes to write stories, though the frequency of writing has changed. When she was 10 years old, she wrote several short stories with drawings. It was then that I found out I would be illustrating a child’s short stories as she loved the idea that I could do composites based on her stories.
All of her stories involved her as one of the main subjects as we can all imagine. From a dress designer to a world of sweets, a mermaid living in the sea and an Egyptian living in the past.
We, daughter and mother, had fun during our sessions and I remember clearly to this day positioning her into the different poses, so I could transform her into a mermaid or I could make her transition from this world to the past one. We chose the colour tones together for the composites and with no doubt I needed the final green light of my results. Illustrating a child’s short stories in this way is priceless.
This is a simple example of how sessions with children should be. Let them have their imagination floating freely. They will not only cooperate much more, but they will enjoy the process. They will be themselves and the results will be natural and not forced upon them.
