What to expect for an In Home Session
I take a very relaxed approach to all my sessions. My main aim is to make everyone feel comfortable and relaxed so I will do minimal posing. My style is very much documentary and is more about capturing moments that happen naturally with a little prompt here and there. I may ask you to sit or stand in a certain spot or light and ask you to hold and hug each other to get some detail and family photos but that will be all.
When I first arrive I will chat to the children a little and perhaps ask them to show me their toys and their room so that they get to know me and feel comfortable. I will take a little tour of your house and find which rooms I think would be best to do the photos in. Usually these are just the rooms with the best light. Please dont feel you need to tidy up or clean too much as I take a documentary approach it’s all about capturing your family for who you are and how you live so you can look back in years to come and remember exactly how it was at that time.
I will aim to get a few photographs of you all together and an environmental portrait of each child. For the rest of the session the focus will be on capturing natural moments and tell the story of your family.
What to wear
Comfortable clothes that you would usually wear. I only advise people to stay away from too bright or patterned clothes that will take away from what is happening in the photos.
