Although for the most part I am a wedding photographer, I love getting the chance to spend some time in the studio shooting family portraits. This set is from a mother and baby shoot I done at the studio in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. It’s a great location as its easy to get to from the surrounding towns, including Tonbridge and Sevenoaks and has free parking! :) Adele and Frankie arrived at the studio for a 1 hour session, Frankie was brilliant and gave us lots of cheeky smiles. Adele brought along a few outfit changes for him to add some variety into the photos.
We decided to shoot on a white background or High Key as its known in the photography world, just to mix it up a little we introduced a red leather sofa and a miniature chair for Frankie.
These types of shoot are all about fun, the more fun the children are having, the more fun the photos are. One hour shoots are from my experience work the best, any shorter and it doesn’t give the children enough time to relax and any longer, the children may get a little bored. Some families will also bring their pets in for shoots, this could be photographing just the pet or including them in the family photo.
This collection was a mixture of colour and Black & White. Everything is shot in high resolution colour so if you don’t like B&W, I will keep everything in colour for you. Family portraits can also work really well on location, more of a lifestyle shoot. Popular locations are maybe a local woodland, a park, the beach or anywhere else that you and the family enjoy!
As well as family portraits, I also offer bump to baby, newborn and portfolio shoots for aspiring models. If you are interested in arranging a shoot, please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss your requirements.
