A riot of colour as far as you look, this once a year floral spectacular is worth the hours drive from Bristol. These confetti fields are my all time favourite location for family photography, I think you’ll agree this is a special place when you look through my images below.
The newborn baby and family photography session featured today took place in Redland. It’s an area I know well having grown up a mile from here, so I reminisced in the car about my old stomping ground as I drove through Bristol’s streets en-route to this very special family photography shoot.
Being invited in to someone’s home for a family shoot is always enjoyable, especially a home so light and airy as Sian’s. I was really looking forward to this family session – partly as I secretly miss not having a baby to cuddle (were my children really that small?) So yep, I loved meeting newborn baby Evie and three-year-old Ellis. Having been recommended to Sian by a past family photography client, I knew that Sian was someone who appreciates family imagery and this was clear by the beautiful photographs on the walls of her home. She’s a girl after my own heart!
Photographing small children requires patience and I promise you I have it. With two small children of my own I know they don’t always want to have their photographs taken, so please don’t ever feel any pressure or expectation on my part if you book me to photograph your children, I’m laid back and go with the flow, determined to work with whatever is thrown at me.
Ellis I have to say was a natural in front of the camera, he was happy to read books to his Daddy (Stick Man incase you wondered…. we both knew the words), he showed me his toys and played trains with Daddy. It was lovely to see his personality shine through when he played hide & seek in the mirror with his Mummy. Then how his energy was quietened for a really tender moment when he got to lovingly hold his beautiful three week old sister.
Evie was a darling all through her shoot, a natural! I’m so pleased I was able to capture individual images of her, as well as a selection of her with her family.
If you are interested in a family shoot with me please do get in touch. I love at home shoots like this but am equally happy to head outdoors too. Let’s discuss what you’re thinking 🙂
Being at home is the best way to capture your children being themselves. However, if you’d prefer to head outdoors then we can arrange an outdoor session also. Just get in touch today to discuss availability.
Fancy booking in for a mini family session with me? This is a smaller-than-normal family photography session in a stunning outdoor beach location.
Taking place over two dates, Saturday 2nd April and Wednesday 6th April 2016 these 30 minute photography sessions are perfect for capturing some fun, natural images on location of your family. Younger children in particular respond well to a high-energy, short burst of activity and therefore a mini session can really work well for them.
You’ll receive beautiful, natural photographs of you and your family. Outdoors and naturally lit, I’ll put you at ease to ensure you get images that you’ll love and will treasure long after your children have grown up. These sessions are perfect if you want to update a few frames around your house too.
I got the chance last month to photograph Heidi, one of my photography friends. Heidi is an amazing photographer and I love her work, but more than that she is a cool person to just spend time with and talk photography, life and the universe! Heidi came down to Bristol with two of her daughters, I took her and the girls to See No Evil – the UK’s largest street art project. Its colourful, its exciting and it was the perfect start to our family shoot.
