What are those in-between photos?? Well, I’ll tell you…
I love setting up a photo, taking the shot, but then keep pressing the shutter after the couple or child think you’ve finished. I can get some really natural, off the cuff photos this way and they are loved so much by the families. They are great in all my sessions – outdoors and indoors.
Have a look below for some examples.
We’ve all heard “never work with children or animals.” Well, I do both and sometimes at the same time!!!
It doesn’t always go to plan with children (or the animals!). Sometimes children are just not in the mood for photos, or they are having a particularly bad day because those pesky teeth have decided to show up.
But… you can not deny children keep you on your toes! Sometimes you don’t get the big smiles and that’s ok, because they give you other great expressions. I have one photo in mind that stands out for me that shows exactly this. Thea came in for a cake smash and splash. She loved her cake, she gave some brilliant expressions squeezing the life out of her cake (literally!) You can see for yourself here. But when it came to her little bath tub afterwards. There is a photo that just caught her deep in thought. She wasn’t happy but she wasn’t exactly upset either, just thinking (possibly about the cake she has just destroyed!) I love it and I think her Mummy and Daddy do too. I didn’t have to put this photo in Thea’s gallery, but I’m so glad I did.
