Proving that you don’t ever drag your children kicking and screaming into a photostudio for amazing portraits, You Are My Wild is a web project between 14 photographers and their children. Every week, the photographers shoot photos of their kids during their day to to lives and compile their best shots for a web gallery.

The result is a beautifully intimate and visceral depiction of childhood, capturing children at play, at home and at wonder with the world unfolding around them. Needless to say, the images are beautiful, and the level of intimacy and closeness captured in each can only come from placing a parent behind the lens. Each child’s unique personality shines through each shot, whether they are happy, shy, or exploratory.

In the end, these photos will mean more to the parents than studio shots ever will. Follow the project here and check out some of our favorites below.
