Another gorgeous family photo shoot this week, this time it was the turn of 3 year old Maddie and her new baby brother, 7 week old Harry from Milton Keynes.
Maddie had no reservations about being in the spotlight, she was born to smile! Her beautiful blonde hair was loosened for dramatic effect with the fan turned on, these action shots are always entertaining for the children and give great results. The smile on Maddie’s face really captures the childhood innocence of her 3 years and is very beautiful both in person and in her photographs. We deliberately keep our images stripped down, without the distraction of props or fancy clothes that cause distraction in the photos, so the child as the subject is able to truly shine. We believe all children are beautiful, and it’s our task to capture this for our clients.
Our photography is a contradiction, it’s pure, simple and very natural but its also a thoughtfully designed process to achieve this! We use minimal toys in the studio, we want our mini visitors to be happy and have a good time while with us but to stay on task. We want parents to be comfortable, but to get involved. So we know our photography experience is quite unique; how we run things differs to others in the industry and allows us to earn the reputation our photography is known for; powerful and pure. The combination works, as we get beautiful, striking images like Maddie and Harry’s.
Babies, babies, babies! The younger the client, the more tender the customer as you’re simply up against those childhood developmental stages. Little Harry has just learnt he can deliver heartmelting smiles, and showed a few off as we got ready. No matter how many raspberries, tickles and animated gucchy goos came his way from all of us, at 6 weeks old he was just shy of doing it to order in front of the camera, although he seemed to try.
We got some beautiful individiual shots of him nonetheless, and a beautiful family portrait shot with proud Maddie. They’re beautifully linked with their hands draped casually next to each other which really showcases the intimacy of their sibling bond.
This family shoot was another absolute pleasure. We’re so privileged to have some amazing families through who really ‘get’ what we try to achieve in our photography, and appreciate the purity of our style of portraits.
Thanks to mum, dad, Maddie and Harry for a fun shoot, impeccable behaviour and full involvement making the shoot another success.
