Fun family studio photo session in Edwalton

 

Last Friday, Abigail brought her new baby brother James for his first photo session in the studio. Whilst Abigail is an old hand at these things now, having been to see me 3 times before, James was not quite so excited and was more calm and interested in all the goings on! What an adorable little boy! Abigail was a great helper though, and I know exactly where to look in a few years when I’m searching for a new assistant!

Whilst the trend these days is more in favour of lifestyle sessions at a local park or nearby stately home, (like Wollaton, Clumber Park, or Elvaston Castle), a studio photo session still has a lot to offer, particularly for people with very young babies and children, or more elderly family members, who are cannot manage a 30 or 40 minute walk in the open air. It’s brilliant being able to offer both alternatives, as I think both options have strong advantages and we can always play to their strengths. A studio session means that we don’t have to worry about the weather, but if you want to, we can still step outside for a few minutes into the gardens, to get a feeling of the great outdoors!

On the other hand, a lifestyle session offers an opportunity for larger family groups to meet up and have group photos taken together in very informal settings and situations, often where family members are self conscious and don’t enjoy having their photos taken. The children can bring bikes, balls and wellies and tear around letting off steam….usually the results are very natural, relaxed photographs that really capture the personalities of the people. The self conscious ones are usually the ones who enjoy it the most, saying afterwards that it was loads better than they had anticipated and the photos are perfect! If you have young teen children who are a bit awkward and starting to become self-conscious, a lifestyle session offers an opportunity to have more photographs with a more “fashion” feel to them, which they tend to enjoy posing for.

If you have some ideas for a fun family photo session, please phone for a no-obligation chat 0115 9231537 or to make an appointment to visit the studio and see what its like!
