Tips For Capturing Your Story
I am asked all the time "What should we wear?" and "What should we bring?". Portraits can celebrate a milestone or pay tribute to the everyday moments that so easily fade from our memories. Here are a few ideas:
Telling your story can be aided by special props
Are you inspired by sports? Fulfilled by fashion or thirsty for knowledge? Staging your session with a cherished book, sporting equipment or musical instrument enhances the experience and the outcome.
Telling your story can be enhanced in the perfect setting
Your relationship with a beloved pet can be encapsulated in an outdoor setting while playing in the park. One of my favourite settings is downtown London. Clean urban lines are often the perfect backdrop.
Have a toddler who is always on the go?
Perfect! There’s nothing I love more than following an adventurous kid around and let him/her guide the session. Let’s freeze this exploratory, rough-and-tumble, sticky, cuddly and chaotic phase forever, with a perfect piece of art.
Telling your story can be focused and simplified in the studio
Focusing on your face and its many expressions on a simple white background highlights both the inner and outer you.
From toddlers to teens, maternity shoots, business portraits and everything in between, tell your story and share its beauty. My sessions are not rushed, so we can take our time to get to know each other, bringing out the fun and spontaneity that traditional portrait studios lack.
Tips Regarding The Best Age to Create Child's Portrait?
I am asked all the time "What is the best age to create my child's portrait?". There is no right or wrong time to have your child’s portrait created. Portraits can celebrate a milestone or pay tribute to the everyday moments that so easily fade from our memories. Here are a few ideas, though:
A new baby is tiny for such a short time!
Full of personality and wonder.
Off to School
Don’t leave this important time in the hands of a “school photographer”. Celebrate your child’s growing independence and unique traits.
Your child is now becoming an adult. This is a time for discovering themselves and how they fit into the world around them.
