Children & Families.
For me, a portrait shoot with children and families should be relaxed and natural, and take place in a setting where you feel comfortable, so that you can be yourself and most importantly have some fun! With children this is essential, as they respond so much better when they’re running around and playing, than when they’re forced to sit nicely and smile in front of a white backdrop. So I like to head outside and explore the local area, and whether it’s wandering through the woods, frolicking in the fields, or skipping across the sand, I aim to capture some beautiful images that really reflect who you are as a family.
Maternity & Babies.
Pregnancy is such an amazing time – full of nervousness and excitement in equal measures! In a maternity shoot I aim to create a special set of images which portray the beauty of this significant moment in a woman’s life. This will usually take place about 7 months into your pregnancy, either in your home or at an alternative location of your choosing.
After the baby arrives it’s wonderful to be able to capture the magic of their first few weeks of life – from their gorgeous little facial expressions to their tiny baby fingers and toes! And these are images that you will treasure forever. Ideally this will take place at your home during the first two weeks, and we’ll work together to find the best time to suit the newest member of your family! However I absolutely love to photograph babies of all ages so please do get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Before we meet I like you to have a think about locations near your home where you might like the shoot to take place – a park, a field, the woods or even the beach (the only exception to this is for a newborn baby shoot as these will take place in your home). I’ll also ask you to have a few outfit ideas ready which we can choose from on the day.
I recommend allowing 2-3 hours for a portrait shoot, on a day that is convenient for you. I like to start all of my lifestyle shoots by getting to know you, and then having a chat about your preferred location and outfits. Oh, and I rarely say no to a cup of tea! Then once everyone’s ready and relaxed a bit we’ll get out to capture some great images, and hopefully have loads of fun in the process.
