Portrait Photography with Chris & Ashleigh.

I was fortunate enough to first meet Chris and Ashleigh back in 2010 when I photographed their wedding at Gosfield Hall. I then met them again, a few years later, when I photographed Kiri and Andrews wedding at St Peter’s church in Braintree. Kiri is Ashleigh’s sister and had been a bridesmaid at her wedding. Thanks for the recommendation Ashleigh :-)

Actually talking of recommendations, both Ashleigh and Kiri had the same hairdresser to do their hair on their wedding day, a lovely lady called Vicky and guess what when she got married last year I photographed her wedding as well. Anyway back to what I was saying;

So it was extremely nice to see them a third time when I did this family portrait shoot in Gosfield last summer. They weren’t really sure whether to do a studio shoot or something more natural outdoors in the local area so, we did both.

We started off in my home studio doing a mix of family, small group and individual shots, (not everyone was always willing to play ball but we worked around that easily enough). We then headed over to Gosfield playing fields where they have a children’s play area that worked really well the children enjoyed it they settled a lot more and it took their mind off being photographed.

One of the most popular photographs in my portfolio and on my web site is one of Ashleigh and Chris’s son Ben, you can see it on my home page slide show. It was really surprising to see how much he had grown up and changed over those few years, not as cute now as he was then but still looking cool, just look at that hair.

It just goes to show though how quickly we change, especially children, so remember to capture their photos now on a regular basis so you have a record to keep forever. Better still why not once in a while have some professional photographs taken, that way you can have a high quality permanent record and they make a great gift for family and friends.

Family portrait photography in Essex

This is actually a portrait of my two sons, Robert and Nicholas photographed in the home studio as a present for my wife, Kate. She absolutely loved it. Two very intelligent, good looking boys – and of course you know where they got that from!!

If you would like some beautiful photographic portraits of your family or friends or maybe just yourself then contact me now for more information.

Not sure what presents to give this Christmas or for an upcoming birthday or event, then why not give a portrait voucher, a gift token that can be used for a portrait siting and prints?

A selection of images from a recent family portrait siting – Rob, Suzie and Ollie from Matlock in Derbyshire.

Suzie & Rob primarily wanted some images of Ollie, their first child who was now a few months old. We started out doing some window light and natural light shots whilst Ollie was asleep and then moved on to do a number of portrait shots. I then persuaded Suzie and Rob to get involved as well.

The ones I have chosen to show here are some of the studio shots taken on a dark background. I’m a big fan of black / dark backgrounds I think portraits shot this way can look more engaging, and dynamic than those shot against a traditional  white background (though I like those as well).

The image of Rob on his own is also on one of Pinterest boards and has probably been repined more than any of my other images.

These photos were actually taken quite a few months back and I have photographed Ollie since, I will feature some of those images in a later post.

Family Studio portrait photography

A few images from a recent portrait studio session with Neil, Michelle, Chloe and Harrison.

Mum, Michelle, wanted to update their family portraits with some fresh images to frame and display at home and so arranged to come in one Saturday afternoon.

We shot a few on traditional muslin backdrops and then switched to a more modern and stylish grey.

Chloe and Harrison were typical teenage siblings, definitely a bit of rivalry and tension between them, younger brother trying to wind up older sister, I thought it would be nice therefore to get them to have a little ‘hug’ for the camera – Mum loved this shot.

Family Portrait Photography Halstead Essex

The last time I photographed Kian he was not feeling too well. It was shortly before Christmas, he was teething and had patches of dry red skin on his face. He was tearful, grumpy and miserable (and I think I would be too). Although, on that occasion, we did get some nice photographs I thought we could do better. So I asked mum, Abi, to bring him back in the New Year (at no extra cost), she did and on this occasion we all had a fantastic time!

Kian is much more mobile now and was crawling around everywhere, and so was I trying to keep up with him, crawling around on my hands and knees whilst focusing the camera and taking photographs! It was one of those rare days we get now when the sun was actually shinning, so as well as doing some studio photographs we also ventured out in to the garden and local park.

We got some really fantastic photographs and I managed to survive the session without any injuries, just a little mud on my elbows and knees.

It’s my belief that to get great photographs of babies and children you really do need to get down to their level and to see life as they do. It’s important to break down any barriers and for them, and me, to have fun!

How up to date are the photo’s of your children? Remember they are only young once; you won’t get chance to go back and photograph them like that at a later date. We are all busy people promising ourselves that ‘we must do it’ or ‘we will get around to it later’. But often people never do or else they take some ‘average’ low quality images with a digital camera that never escape the confines of the computer and never or rarely adorn the walls as works of art.

Hey, help is at hand, relax and let someone else do it for you, professional photography does not have to be expensive, but it could ensure you get beautiful images of your children and loved ones that you can cherish forever, leaving you to enjoy some ‘me’ time or else tackle one of the many other jobs on your list.

Family Portrait Photography Gosfield

I recently photographed Katie (aged 3) together with her glamorous grandma Jesse.

At the time of the shoot Katie was actually only two, but it was her 3rd birthday 5 days later. She had never been photographed formally before and so I expected her to be a little shy / apprehensive. I therefore wanted to keep the shoot as informal and fun as I could. I had hoped for some nice weather and fortunately we had a little bit of sunshine that day, so I split the session between the studio and the local park. (By the way that sunshine was a lucky break, it’s actually snowing quite heavily again now).

As predicted Katie was a little shy to start with but with a little help from grandma, the promise of chocolate biscuits and squash and a chance to see Bo our little puppy (see earlier blog entries for pictures) she did get in to the fun of it.

Jesse was brilliant!

Relaxed Fun loving Portrait Photography in the Studio.

Once again the plan was to start in the studio and then venture out and do some cool outdoor lifestyle portraits. Once again though we were beaten by the weather. It had been fine earlier on in the morning but when we came to going out it was cold, dull and miserable, and it was pouring down.

However we had great fun in the studio and got some excellent shots. Although I always have lots of ideas about what images I want to take I always work closely with the client and think it’s important to let them influence the way the session goes, after all they know what they want. Lucy in particular was very keen to get involved and came up with some excellent ideas.

The shoot comprised of some individual shots, some brother & sister and husband & wife shots and some whole family groups shots – something to suit everyone.

Postproduction gave me a chance to stylize some of the images further and to show some of the great finishes that can be had.
