What to expect for an Outdoor 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.
I will likely start taking photos straight away as I wouldn’t want to miss any natural moments. So I will start by asking you to walk to the spot where we take a majority of the photos and will be snapping away on the walk. All that I ask is that there is lots of contact and connection between family members as this will be my main focus for the whole session. Whether it be holding hands, pulling each other along, holding and picking up children, whatever feels natural to you.
Once at our location I will firstly try to get a photo of you all together where i will ask you to interact with each other or me so there are no forced smiles. I will ask children to sing their favourite songs or tickle each other. From then we will just play games and explore and I will capture and document natural moments that occur.
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.
