For kids, meeting at your home to shoot, or outside in a park often works better than the studio.
I know what works with kiddos and cameras! (I was a school teacher in London) and love to shoot your mother/daughter/grandmother THREE GENERATIONS photos too.
Create some candids, action shots and some modern and traditional portrait images of them, or whole family portraits.
Seniors / teens are great to photograph, as they have a blast creating fun ‘model-for-the-day’ images that you’ll treasure always.
Why settle for an ordinary or predictable senior portrait? I am able to shoot what your teens want, and yet what you want too.
Whether or not your teens are confident in front of a camera, or need skin corrections. No Problem. Parents may want to book a package between several of them together and share the cost. Let them choose a place they like, bring friends, and I’ll meet you there!
* I’ll never post your children online, unless you ask me to … but you can show off the photos as much as you like! Wallet size to huge wall size prints are available.
CHOOSE YOUR CLOTHING FOR FAMILY images … Comfortable and casual usually work best. Do you want a journalistic, candid style, a laid-back family day setting or a formal family portrait. Wearing coordinating colors, either all bright or all neutral is a good idea. Avoid logos, wording on T shirts or clashing patterns! Similar colors with the children in patterned clothing and parents in solids often looks great. Given the lasting quality of my Fine Art portraiture, I recommend staying away from any fad or brand clothing, and going for a more classic approach in some of your outfits, but bring lots of choices. A child in their latest fad is also a great thing to capture before it’s over!
WHAT COLORS AND PATTERNS? Always plan with me, I will check the location to advise you about clothing and more. Denim photographs well, as does kakhi, cream, navy, brown, army green, gray, pink, Textures and details like buttons, small patterns, pin stripe, spots, lace, holes, lattice, stitching, are all good.
