Child Photography | What really happens

Something i don’t often get chance to do is just play, and this weekend with it being ‘Mothers Weekend’ ( Because a day simply isn’t enough! 😀 ). Sophie wanted to come to work with me which i was apprehensive about at first because i was expecting “can we go get something to eat” “I’m bored now what can i do” “Can i have your phone” “How much longer” “Can i go on Youtube”…you know the usual complaints.

But she was brilliant, helped out doing the music and choosing outfits for the clients she was a pleasure to have around plus we had time to have a little play. I’ve had some new backdrops and i wanted a few images of them for my website…….so i had an idea of what i wanted……..but with children what you end up with is very different to what you get!

Everytime i tied a headband or did her hair she would either start dancing, fidgeting or moving to how she thought would look best….and ‘My Vision’ was quickly disintegrating!

SO in the end i had to resort to Bribery and told her a trip to Waterstones would be on the cards later (which i was going to do anyway because she had been such a good assistant but it was meant to be a surprise) if we got a few photos.

And in her moments of stillness when she looks right through my camera to me i had what i wanted 😀

Well worth a £6.99 Book from Waterstones!! 😀

 


Posed or Candid Photos?

My little girl Sophie….i keep calling her little but she is now 8 going on 16, doesn’t play with toys, appears to be turning into a computer programmer (!!???) has started street dancing and is so up to date with music and latest trends BUT she will always be my little girl even when she’s towering above me and i’m thin and grey!

Well she is always my assistant when setting up for any shoots “Soph can you just come and sit on this spot so i can get my settings right” Is probably my most used sentence! But she cannot sit….she has to pose, as soon as the camera is lifted i don’t know what happens…well, this happens..

I got a shock when i did my very first proper kids shoot a few years ago…Soph had always just ‘done it’ in front of the camera and i soon realised that a lot of children don’t even want to have a camera pointed at them and that the ‘counselling’ and getting to know them before you can even start is probably the most important part and crucial to getting good relaxed photos of children in the studio.

But why do we want photos of our kids, is it to just document how they look at a certain age or is it to capture who they are as an individual? Because surely that’s what is most important, we want to look back at photos and see THEM, not the startled kid that has been plonked on a box and been told to smile.

So when it comes to the photos i really love, well they are the ones that kinda happen by accident, caught in the moment, or even when things don’t go to plan but turn out better anyway.

Like this……

We went to feed the horses, and i took my camera because i wanted to take some photos of them while we were there. THEN it absolutely poured down, we got drenched!! But it was so funny, and i slipped in horse poo while i was trying to get a few pics of Soph as she was running from the rain. And they aren’t well taken photos, the composition isn’t great, the light is dull…but they have the memories that are attached to them.

This shoot is recommended from the age of 6 months (sitting) to approx 10 years – Up to 3 Children per booking. OR one child under 6 months.

If you would like to bring extra children to the session please discuss this with me and we will arrange a more bespoke package with a slightly longer session to accommodate this.

Images will be sent in an online gallery by the 18th November for you to choose from and download with printing permission…. this will give you plenty time to use the images and have your very own personalised christmas cards made or as a present for the grandparents!
