Introducing brothers James and Daniel who came to the studio today from Stony stratford, near Milton Keynes, to have their children’s portraits photographed.
We’ve blogged about beautiful 2 year olds before – full of character and expression; introducing stunning Daniel, whose blonde hair and baby blue eyes are captivating. Also introducing older brother James, whose huge smile lit up the studio, with gorgeous freckles that look amazing in his photos. The photography doesn’t show how beautifully behaved James was, with the patience of a much older child while waiting for Daniel to settle into the studio.
It’s fair to say, when tiny children don’t want to do something they really can be strong willed. It was only mum who could work the magic today to get Daniel laughing and giggling enough to get a range of shots which included the all important smiles. We’re all for the intensity of non smiley shots but always hope to capture a few images which are more relaxed and laughing. Mums magic formula included lots of kisses, tickling and active involvement which we always encourage with family shoots, which Daniel couldn’t resist. A bit of good old fashioned bribery also helped with the odd biscuit to help appease. Its also important not to rush, to allow a little one time to run around and burn off some of their enormous energy supply, we know that asking them to sit still is painful really!
