Portraits

I do a variety of different types of portraits including:

  • Bumps & Babies
  • Lifestyle
  • Corporate

A lifestyle shoot is all about you and your ‘lifestyle,’ generally starting at your home and then going from there to an alternative location, taking advantage of the great outdoors to provide the best backdrops and the most flattering light available.  The location can be of special significance to you and your family, again this ensures that the session is very much all about you.  Lifestyle shoots can be the whole family or it can be just about the children.

It is important for me to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, where everyone is comfortable and at ease.  I do this by taking a little time to know you, discuss the session in some more detail and then let the session unfold naturally.

Faces have such a lot of character, and they themselves have and can tell their own story.  I love to do individual portraits as well as families as part of the shoot.  Working one on one really allows me to capture the spirit and essence of a person.

With very young babies I obviously prefer to shoot indoors, preferably in your home.  Again working with natural light and your own baby things, personalised name plaques, toys of special significance and so on to create unique, natural images.

I love working with children of all ages and families and believe a have a natural personality to make the session a success.

Individual portraits are normally a bit more formal and shorter, but the same objectives.
