I conduct portrait sessions in a variety of locations. Outdoor locations such as gardens, woodlands and parks are a great backdrop for photo sessions, particularly for families or couples. Relaxed, natural looking portraits are best achieved in locations that are informal.
An outdoor space which allows your children to run, play and show their true personalties and sense of fun will result in fantastic, natural photographs.
For mums of newborn babies you may wish to be in familiar surroundings, taking the stress out of having to pack everything up, and remain in the comfort of your own home with everything you need around you.
Adult portrait photo session locations will vary depending on the nature of the shoot. Corporate headshots are mainly conducted in the office environment, or outdoors if a less formal headshot is required.
For media headshots the client may have a specific look they want to achieve and location and backdrop will be considered as part of the overall look.
For portrait photo sessions please consider your choice of clothing. If you are having a session alongside others (such as a family photo shoot) chose colours that will compliment each other. Bold patterns, stripes and logos are best avoided. Portraits are sensitively retouched should you be concerned about a blemish or scar, and I will always pose in a manner that will flatter and remove self consciousness.
I know it can feel very awkward and unnatural to have your photograph taken. I pride myself on keeping my photo sessions informal, and most importantly as fun as possible. If you enjoy the session it will show in your final images.
