…were in the studio recently, with their parents for a family shoot, with many of the framed prints being destined as presents for proud grandparents! I love this, as it means that the family gets to share their happiness with their photographs and they are safe from getting lost in the digital dustbin that smart phone pictures can quickly disappear into!
i enjoyed taking the whole family as a group but,Toni, the older daughter was being a typical teen and didn’t really want to have her portrait taken. This is where employing a professional photographer pays dividends…by taking a short time to relax, adjusting the lighting and ensuring that Toni was comfortable and didn’t feel “forced” to smile or do anything she wasn’t happy with, I think I have managed to capture something special in this young woman’s picture. Too often, i feel,studios expect their subjects to jump around, roll on the floor and pretend to be having “fun”…while all the time making them feel self conscious. I hear this so often from my customers, when they tell me that they just want something beautiful or classic in style
Both Toni (on the left) and Alex were relaxed for their individual portraits and I am very pleased with the “look” of them…as I know that they and the family are
