Fine Art Family Portraits: K
A week or so ago I shared some portraits of E. Today it’s her sisters turn. I did some family portrait portfolio building with these two little bundles of energy before lockdown. E & K are obviously sisters. You can tell from the portraits of them both together that they’re sisters. They came into the studio with their mum for a couple of hours, and now it’s time to share some of K’s photographs. If you want to see her older sister, E’s portraits, you can click here.
The Studio can be a bit of an intimidating environment for little ones. That’s why we try to make everything as fun as possible. We don’t get them in through the door and start shooting straight away. Also, both parents are welcome, along with any other family members. Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents etc. All welcome to come in, but bear in mind that my studio isn’t massive and seating is a bit limited. If there’s time, we’ll get some photographs of you all together too. Children, like adults, appreciate the connection and input into the shoot. I like to show them some prints from other shoots and ask them how they’d like to pose, then we all chat, play with some toys and then when everyone is ready, start to take some fabulous photographs.
I like to do the more serious Fine Art Portraits first. At the start of the shoot, it’s a lot easier to get the serious look that really works for this type of portrait. You can see that at the start of the shoot, we got the more serious photographs of both E & K and then as they relaxed into the shoot, the fun side of their personalities came out
If you’d like an initial consultation, so we can talk about a portrait shoot for you or your little ones, please get in touch.
Shooting children’s portraits is a bit of a different kettle of fish to adults and we take safety very seriously. Both Fiona & I are fully CRB checked and Fiona is a fully qualified and experienced Primary School Teacher. You’ll also notice that on the blog posts, we never use the children’s names.
