When children are happy and relaxed they reveal their true personalities. So, my approach is to let them play. Blowing bubbles, flying kites, turning cartwheels on the beach. They are at their happiest when they feel free. The same goes for the parents. So, no stiff poses, no cajoling kids to smile, just gentle encouragement from me, and we’ll get some beautiful portraits that will last for life.
1. BEFORE THE SESSION
Let’s chat. We can meet or talk on the phone. We can discuss dates, timing, location, who’s involved and of course what to wear.
2. PORTRAIT SESSION
Time can vary from one to two hours, or occasionally more if we’re dealing with a sleeping newborn. Location is often a nearby park or woods, and back to your home or a local cafe for a well earned hot chocolate or ice cream.
3. VIEWING THE PHOTOGRAPHS
This takes place about two weeks later at yours or mine and takes about two hours. I work closely with you on your selection and help turn your digital images into works of art. All photographs are printed on Hahnemühle fine art paper. You can then choose from bespoke photo books, wooden frames and fine art wraps, all of which have been selected for their high quality and style.
4. DISPLAY YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS WITH CONFIDENCE
Your children will love growing up with these photographs, whether they take pride of place on your walls or are displayed on coffee tables for all to enjoy.
