Linda’s Son and Granddaughter

September 20, 2011

Lin and her husband Steve received a gift voucher from their family to have a portrait shoot of their granddaughter. So at the weekend I popped down the road, to Bexleyheath, to spend an hour or two running round the garden capturing this beautiful little lady. Her father, Tony, was also on board to help entertain and bring out the smiles of his daughter.

She is such a happy little girl and there wasn’t a single grumble from her as I followed her around with my camera.

I try to keep my photo shoots very relaxed, letting children play and interact with their family without my camera distracting them too much. I often attempt to manipulate children into the situations I require with phrases such as ‘play peek-a-boo with me’ or ‘can you see that bird behind me?’. Of course children, even the youngest of toddlers, are far more clever than I give them credit for and these sly tactics don’t work for too long before they cotton on to my game!

This final photo from my favourites simply warms my heart. I love the way that Lin’s granddaughter is looking at her. It’s like they are sharing such a special moment between the two of them (even though Tony is clearly involved – howling with laughter :)). I have a similar photograph of myself with my Nan and it’s one that I cherish.
