My photography style is very natural, and in each photo I take, I aim to capture the natural story and beauty of each family. The style of portrait photography I specialise in is generally called 'lifestyle'. It is about capturing real life situations. You can see my normal style in my portfolio, or in my past blogs. However, I know that sometimes people like to have a range of shots to choose from. So I decided to undertake some training and push my creative boundaries, whilst still retaining my natural style that I know and love, and that my clients expect of me from my portfolio.
I am a member of The Guild of Photographers, which I joined to be part of a body that upholds standards and quality in my profession, but also to ensure I continue to learn, grow, and develop creatively as a photographer. I always want to push myself to be the best I can, and ensure my clients get the highest quality images and service I can possibly provide. I heard about Claire Elliott because she is a Judge panel member, involved in the monthly competitions that The Guild run. I saw that she was running a training course and jumped at the chance to learn from her.
After the training, I ran a model call. I asked for newborn babies near me, to either come to my home, or for me to visit them with my equipment. I luckily got lots and lots of responses from families in Teddington, Twickenham and St Margarets - all near me, which was great.
The first session I did was from this gorgeous little baby girl, who was just 11 days old. They came to my house for a relaxed photo session. The added bonus is that I got some great cuddles. Just check out how cute she is, and those cheeks!
It was an absolute pleasure to meet her, and the amazing Mum too. It was an honour to spend a few hours in their company, and capturing this very special time.
