In fact it’s one of my biggest passions to make sure that I get photos of you all in different dynamics because ultimately what usually happens (at least it does in my house) is you have a photo reel where one member of the family isn’t involved or is the continuous photo taker so never appears. Selfies are great and all that but nothing beats beautiful photos of you and your loved ones laughing and playing, snuggling and smiling to look back on and remember.
There’s no studio for my family and newborn work instead I love to come to your home and capture the little ones in their natural environment or we can head out and let everyone have a run around on location. I love to mix up relaxed moments with slightly more posed shots so that you have a nice selection to choose from. It also keeps the children more chilled if they feel they can carry on playing and not be forced to pose solidly for an hour. Bribery of snacks is also a great way to induce happy smiley faces for all involved.
I can make weekdays and weekends work and like to shoot for 90mins with families and 2 hours for newborn shoots. These timings allow for all of the eventualities of parenting (tantrums, toilet breaks, nappy changes, bottle/ breast feeds, deep breaths by parents) without eating too much into the time for us to get some great photos.
