I just wanted to share some photos from a shoot I did yesterday. The session was just a quick ten-minute favour from a friend who said I could photograph her two gorgeous girls to use on one of my new postcards for marketing. It was a challenging shoot because thundery clouds kept making the room dark as if it was the middle of the night and the very beautiful two-year-old Poppy is at that tricky stage of dropping her afternoon nap so was feeling a little on edge. However, as I hope you’ll agree, despite the fact that I was working overtime to adjust my camera to cope with bright sunlight/dark-like-nightime conditions, that we had to pause Ben and Holly in all their TV glory mid shoot (which sparked some displeasure), and that we were working against the clock before school pickup, it all turned out very well.
Just goes to show that with only a few minutes you can end up with some lovely shots, even if it’s stressful for a mummy while it’s going on because her little angels aren’t necessarily sitting still and smiling. Give me a wriggly baby and a toddler with a cheeky face over a staged-for-the-camera fixed grin every time.
Off to Norfolk for a few days which is why my blogging is unusually frequent… Looking forward to some time by the sea and taking lots of photos in some of my favourite spots.
