Celebrities through the eyes of their children

Celebrities are no stranger to being photographed by some of the most renowned shutterbugs around (and we’re no stranger to seeing the stunning results), but there’s something very special about seeing them captured by their own offspring.

Click on to see which famous parents have showed off images snapped by their little ones.

Photographed by: Baby Qi

Did you know that Joanne and Yuwu’s 3-year-old daughter has her own Instagram page? While the account is managed by her mother, all the photos are taken by her, and we must say they are really not bad.

Our favourite is the gorgeous portrait shot she took of her parents in what looks like a very private and intimate setting - definitely not something just anybody would have been able to witness. The one of Joanne lying on the floor next to Baby Qi’s “char shao bao” is pretty adorable too (not exactly a pose we see her doing for just any regular photographer).

Another little girl with a possible future in photography is the Mandopop king’s 3-year-old daughter, who has taken some rather magazine-worthy pictures of her mum (we guess it helps that Hannah is photogenic too, anyway). The shot of her parents out on the lawn also looks like something you’d see in some cool streetwear campaign (minus her small hands in the frame, but one could argue that it adds a bit of candid artistic flair).

We appreciate Sonia’s honesty in revealing that this lovely photo taken by her daughter, who turns 2 in February next year, is “one shot in about a thousand” (implying that the other pictures didn’t turn out as nicely), but we’re pretty impressed by the result anyway (again, it probably helps that Sonia is literally a supermodel).

We love how we can see a clear improvement in Aden’s framing skills. In the pictures that his mum shared on May 12, the subjects are not properly centred (and his poor little sister Avery is even almost completely cut out from the shot), but the June 6 upload of Kate doing yoga has a much better composition. The 4-year-old will be shooting like a pro in no time.

The Hong Kong actors’ only son, who turns 12 next week, appears to have lost all his Instagram photos posted before April 13, 2016, including a number of shots of his famous parents. Fortunately, we managed to grab some screenshots before the incident happened, but for some reason, Morton has not shared anymore photos of his folks since getting his account - which is now “co-managed by dad” - back on September 10 this year.

The former actress joked that she wants to train her 7-year-old son to become a great photographer so she will have someone to take photos for her all the time. Judging from the quality of these snaps, it doesn’t look like it will be a tough thing to do - Zavier appears to already have natural talent in him, in addition to his apparent interest in operating a camera.

Awww, would you look at this super sweet shot captured by Wu Chun’s 5-year-old boy, which the proud dad (check out the prominent photo credit on the bottom left corner) posted to commemorate Chinese Valentine’s Day this year.

Should we be surprised that a 3-year-old knows how to [successfully] work the depth-of-field function on a phone camera? Technical skills aside, we love the subtle artistry in the candid-yet-posed-looking (or posed-yet-candid-looking?) snap of her dad and little brother.

Ah Jie’s two older boys clearly do a good job in documenting their mama’s many sides, whether it’s with a pensive, gazing-off-into-the-distance lifestyle-worthy shot while on holiday, or a video of her attempting to dance “The Floss” in an oversized sweater.
