Why have a photoshoot at home?
Over lockdown our movements have been restricted in an unprecedented way and people have had to be resourceful. Many people have had the front door photoshoots at home which was such a lovely way to support photographers. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to participate as I had no childcare. However, since restrictions have eased I have been back to one of my favourite clients for a garden photoshoot. They have a beautiful, spacious garden and being at home definitely helped the boys relax. We all know how difficult it is getting children ready and out of the house, but this took away all that initial stress. The boy’s cheeky personalities absolutely shone and being in their own environment gave them an extra dose of confidence.
If you have the space, booking a photoshoot at home is great idea.
Getting to know you.
I have photographed this beautiful little family for the last 4 years. Each year I have really enjoyed seeing the boys and how much they have changed. This year was particularly amazing as they remembered me. They were excited to chat to me and tell me all about their summer and how life had been since lockdown. It made me so happy! I think there is definitely something to be said about having continuity with your shoots. We teach our children stranger danger so sometimes I think to expect them to be incredibly confident for photos when they don’t know the person is quite difficult for them. Children are also very sensitive to your own emotions so the more relaxed you are the more relaxed they will be too. I work with many families on a yearly basis and I definitely feel those shoots have something extra special about them.
