Photographing Kids is child’s play

By that, I don`t mean it is easy, I mean it happens best when the children are playing.

We live in a world full of devices that we can use to instantly capture an image and share it via social media with friends and family all over the globe. more than likely those images will not get printed, framed and hung on the wall. In fact the only time you might get a printed image of your child is from a school photo.

School photos can be great – they’re fantastic at capturing a real snapshot of your child during an important time of their life that they’ll remember for years to come.  They’re also great for parents to reminisce and marvel at how quickly time flies by!  But don’t you find that these photos are often more style over substance?  Kids are asked to sit up straight, give a smile, and move on – and the end result doesn’t really offer you much about your child’s personality !

My photo shoots aim to really convey who your child is. I take pictures of kids being kids.

During a photo shoot sessions at a location of your choice I’ll not only help them feel comfortable and happy but I’ll encourage them to play and be themselves.  Does your son enjoy playing in the park, climbing trees, or perhaps dressing as a super hero and defending the world?  Or maybe your daughter likes walking the dog in the local woods, dressing as a princess or having a teddy bears picnic in the garden?  – I will  capture them doing what they love, being relaxed and happy, allowing me to grant you some really unique and colourful photographs of childhood that you can look back on and enjoy?

Arranging for a photo shoot couldn’t be easier – I like to keep things simple and informal and will normally have an initial chat with you via telephone, email or face-to-face, distance permitting.   During these conversations I will aim to discuss with you what you’d like to get out of your photo shoot, what you can expect from my services and, perhaps most importantly, a little bit about the children that I will be meeting on the day!  This helps me to get an idea of their personality and what could work best in a photo shoot for you.

Shooting on location is very important to my process – I’ll come to you!  It’s my philosophy that the most relaxed and fun environments for family photography take place in a child’s more familiar environments – the family home, a play park – anywhere that they are likely to be themselves and feel comfortable with a fun and memorable photo shoot!  While I do prefer to work with natural light, I am flexible with providing other types of lighting and can come prepared for almost any location.

If you’re looking for a fun, memorable and overall stress-free photo shoot for your children that will; help provide memories for a lifetime to come, please contact me further and we can discuss how I can help make this a reality for you!  The best photos are happy photos!
