Anna’s Son’s Portrait Shoot

July 29, 2011

Anna and John recently received a gift voucher from Anna’s parents for a portrait shoot. They opted for a shoot of just their two year old son rather than a family shoot of the three of them (camera-shy parents!).

I visited Anna and son at her parents garden in Orpington, Kent. Thankfully the weather was kind; dry and overcast, providing me with even lighting and plenty of natural, uncluttered background.

I had trouble choosing my favourites from this shoot. Anna’s son was a joy to photograph. He kept me laughing the whole time and kept me on my toes – little boys love to run! Most of the time he kept his back to me, subtly showing me that he didn’t want his picture taken. Other times, he interacted with me like there wasn’t even a lens between us!

Anna had taken a look at my website and blog and seen a few photograph themes that she wished to have replicated. Anna liked my closely cropped shots. These can be really hard to capture from a toddler who has 10 times the energy I have 🙂 but I still love taking them – to see the detail in the end result and get the use out of my macro lens.

Anna’s son had the most smiles when it came to creating bubbles. He either carefully placed the bubble machine to cover one of the adults in a cloud of bubbles or a small bubble pot to single out just one person.

Guess who got covered this time….

Keep an eye out on the website in a few weeks time to see the rest of the photographs from Anna’s shoot.
