I've been very fortunate this year to have several families return to have done for their second child what we did for their first. Its nice to know they were happy enough the first time to return. Its also great fun to see how the first has grown.
Having 2 children to photograph together, although challenging, opens up a whole new variety of portrait. I'm able to use my usual props differently. Like in this one with the baby in the pram. I love that we get an image of this little girl proudly pushing her little brother. This is something that no doubt will be a memory for her parents of no only her helping with her brother on walks but also of her pushing her own dolls in her own pram.
When Mum came to pick up her portraits she looked at this one and said this is so much more than just a photograph. "It is a real portrait that I am so happy to have on my wall.".
This is what I've always aimed to create. Anyone can take photographs but its always been my desire to create real portraits that will stand the test of time, bringing art that is very personal to my clients. Not every photographer can do this. Its something I've worked very hard for over the 10 years I've been in business. I suppose secretly I've always wished I could be an artist. I've never attempted to cultivate the painter in me though. But when I found photography it all came together for me. I like the idea of creating something photographically that would have been the sort of thing that was painted in the past.
(As always I love the parent and baby portraits because I think they are going to mean so much to this little boy when he grows up.
So if you are looking for something a bit more special than your average photograph get in touch and we can create something meaningful for you too.
