Natural Family Photographer Haslemere
Working with toddlers and young children is super fun (mostly!). I try and make my Haslemere child photography sessions as enjoyable for everyone as possible. As a child photographer working in Haslemere and the surrounding area I want to capture the magic of childhood – something that isn’t possible in a studio environment.
Instead I work in your home anywhere in Haslemere or nearby or on location – perhaps somewhere with some special meaning to you all? I tend to like National Trust properties, woods and the seaside.
Childhood is full of magic and wonder
A time when even a box can be the best thing ever. I work hard to try and keep the mood of my child photography sessions light and easy going – I want to be part of the fun, but also unobtrusive. Each family and each child is different, as a natural child photographer I’m not looking generally for posed “smile for the camera” sort of images, I want a bit more real life – I might hunt out some good light and then just let either the kids or you play.
They grow up fast, right? I find with children aged 4 and up, we as parents want to capture their youthfulness and childish-ness but they want to show how grown up they are. It’s nice that balance. We’ll have chatted beforehand about what we might want to do on the shoot (I think outing might be a better word, as photoshoot conjures up thoughts of getting dressed up and saying cheese, whereas I’d quite like some grass stains on trousers and mud on the face) and what sort of activities, games, we could do.
Don’t say cheese
Please. I don’t want fake cheesy grins. I don’t mind grumpy faces …
I also document particular occasion’s – birthday party, family get together or a day at the seaside.
