Portrait sessions of your children is the best way to capture how they have grown! From when they were sleepy, little cubs to the hilarious cheeky monkeys that they become! The best thing about your child is that he/she has their own personality and every day they show you something new. I absolutely love capturing their personality and habits on camera and love it even more when families recognise them immediately in their viewing!
My portrait sessions incorporate a variety of props, which include light and airy backgrounds to fine art set ups. I enjoy natural expressions as much as posed ones and I always leave it to the parents to decide what direction they would like the shoot to go towards. We will discuss what set ups you would prefer prior to your session as I like to prepare in advance.
Outdoor, location shoots are something that I also do. An additional charge of £15 is added for location shoots within Coventry, which would cover travel time and cost. We will discuss where to shoot; my preferred spots in Coventry and Coombe Abbey and War Memorial Park, where there is enough space for your little ones to run around and enjoy themselves. If this is something you would prefer, please let me know and we can arrange it accordingly.
A portrait/family session will last between 1-2 hours, depending on how well it goes. Before your session, please could you make sure that your little one has had their meal and nap (if they have one); this is to make sure that they remain as happy and hyperactive as possible! Please bring snacks/food, water, milk and anything else you think they may like to keep them going as it can be quite tiring being a model! If you could also bring any outfits that you would like them to wear for their shoot. I will provide outfits as well to suit set ups.
The most important thing to me is to make sure that your little one is having a good time and I always encourage short breaks and plenty of crazy sounds!
