Introducing the very lovely Daisy, Poppy and Freddie from Rugby, who popped along to the studio last week with mum for their family portrait photography.
Daisy who is 4 years old and Poppy who is 2 came bounding in and took very little time to relax, although Daisy had already said she didn’t want her photo’s taken today she soon forgot this once her younger sister had taken centre stage! Freddie, who is 1, was a little more unsure but we left him to explore and check out the studio whilst I concentrated on his sisters portraits.
It’s perfectly natural for young children to take a little warming up when they first arrive at the studio, which is why we never rush our shoots and try to keep them as relaxed and friendly as possible. Even then very shy children can be reluctant to have their photographs taken at all, this is when patience becomes the portrait photographer’s greatest asset.
