Hertfordshire Family Photographer

Fun & natural family photography

I have met so many lovely families over the past few years through my work and I feel very lucky to be a Hertfordshire family photographer. I love capturing little personalities and the beautiful connection between parents and their children. Everyone says how quickly children change and grow, which is why it is so important to try and document as many stages through their childhood as you can. Remember it as clearly as possible.

To show off those little personalities it is important for the children to feel comfortable during the session. One way to help them relax is to have the session in a familiar space, so I offer my family photography session at the family home or outside at a location of their choice. I also take the first 5-10 minutes to just chat and play with the children so they get use to me before I start shooting. I have a few tricks that work really well to gain their trust at the beginning of the session (e.g. showing them how the camera works) so they are happy to be themselves in front of the camera.

With my style of photography the aim is for you to forget about the camera and just have fun. I like to create activities and things for families to do so the attention is on the action or the children rather than on what I am doing. I offer direction when needed but avoid any static posing, when there are children involved you have to keep moving. Its simple things like reading a book together, tickling the children, walking hand in hand and whispering to each other that create lovely reactions.

I have been a Hertfordshire family photographer for a few years now and during this time I have realised that sometimes it is best to let children lead, see what their imagination uncovers and how it develops. It is this kind of relaxed and natural approach that allows the uniqueness of each family and child to shine through.
