TIPS FOR BABY PHOTOGRAPHY / CHILDREN’S PHOTOGRAPHY/ FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY
I get asked lots of questions from my clients before they come in for their sessions, so I have put together some tips, that can help you on the day! Obviously my first priority is that being in my studio is a positive experience for you and your children. I aim to have lots of fun and bring out cheeky smiles and giggles. Well rested children and parents are a must!
Babies and young children change so much in each stage of development, so it is so lovely to try and capture these fun and adventurous times. Favourite toys are a large part of young children’s lives and put smiles on their little faces so they are the best props to bring along. Accessories such as bath towels, hats, sunglasses, scarves and blankets are other great props as they help me interact with your children and bring out their natural characters.
Older Children often have their own personal interests and I like to try and capture thatin their photographs. Whether it is music, sports or just funky outfits and accessories, bring these props along and I can incorporate them in a cool and creative way. There are also different lighting options available if you would like to try something a little more ‘arty’, and create an image that is more innovative and creative. This style is particularly sought after by teenagers and young adults.
Family photography is so wonderful when it captures the love and happiness between all your family members. This is the reason I like to play fun games during the session as it brings out everyone’s true personalities. If your family has a mutual interest for example sking or football, please feel free to bring props along and we can create images that reflect your family life.
My style of photography is carefree and fun so when choosing outfits for your session, opt for casual/smart clothing which is vibrant and colourful. Bright colours works best on the white backdrop I work on. Shoes are optional as I like to photograph barefoot so that everyone is relaxed and comfortable.
When we meet on the day of your session, we will sit down together and discuss all our options. The mixture of your expectations and my complete passion for photography will ensure I create something unique, endearing and everlasting.
Please view my galleries which will show you samples of what others have brought to their session.
