I am a professional photographer based in Gosfield near Braintree North Essex; I specialises in wedding and portrait photography, for more details please visit my main web site www.tonysalephotography.co.uk
It was my pleasure last week to take some portrait photographs of young mum Abi and her 5-month-old son Kian. Well actually most of them were of Kian but I did manage to sneak the odd shot of ‘mum’ now and then as well.
As part of the planning process I like to ensure when photographing babies or young children that they have had their latest feed and sleep prior to the shoot. With Kian It seemed we had timed it perfectly, he was well fed and rested and in fact was still sleeping on arrival. I took the first few shots whilst he was still sleeping and then a few more as he gradually awoke. Kian has fantastic big bright blue eyes and he was a delight to photograph. We got some really nice shots and Abi loved them all.
Unfortunately though Kian has just starting teething and to be fair he soon became a little grumpy and distracted, there was no way he wanted to charm us with his ‘cute’ baby smile.
That’s not a problem, these things happen and there’s not too much you or I can do about it. I will simply arrange for Abi to bring Kian along to finish the shoot on another day, at no extra cost of course.
It’s really importance to me that the photo shoot should be relaxed and enjoyable,
it’s all about getting great images for you. If for whatever reason we don’t get the images you want then we can simply arrange to do another shoot on another day. This reassurance actually helps people to relax; they don’t feel self conscious or obliged to perform
Having said Kian became a bit grumpy we still got some great portrait photographs, see what you think.
