Happy New Year blog readers!
I've had a wonderful year photographing some amazing clients and their families and businesses. I'm so excited to see what 2019 will bring. I have a packed calendar of maternity photo sessions, newborn photoshoots, cake smash photo shoots, family portraits and corporate photography too. I will also be running a series of Mini Sessions themed around the seasons, so join my mailing list and follow me on Facebook to keep up to date with news, events and special offers. I'll be offering Easter Bunny photoshoots for newborns and babies, Bluebell Mini Sessions in the local bluebell woods and much more.
Just before Christmas I was very busy with family photo shoots, as my clients prepared gifts for friends and family, such as the Baker family, who came for a family portrait at my home studio.
The Baker family consists of Cheryl (grandmother), who lives in South Africa and was visiting for Christmas, Jolene (mother) organiser, Amy, who is going to university soon and younger brother Michael. A very creative family, Jolene says she chose me as her photographer as she liked the quality of my previous work - thanks Jolene!
"Helen made us feel welcome and at ease straight away. She took the time to make us a drink and have a chat before the shoot began", says Jolene.
As you can see from the comments above and the photos below, this family is not only photogenic, but also a close-knit group who clearly love spending time together. They are lucky to have been together over Christmas, especially since grandmother Cheryl lives so far away.
Asked whether she would recommend me to others, Jolene says,
"Yes definitely 100%. Lovely welcoming atmosphere and great photos."
It certainly was a fun photoshoot. Amy and Michael were not too keen on having their photos taken, as is the case with most clients I see! However once we had a chat and a bit of a giggle, everyone soon relaxed and I was able to catch some natural smiles, as shown in these photos.
If you are looking for a professional family portrait which shows your family relaxed with natural smiles, get in touch via my Contact Page. I offer sessions at my studio or outdoor photoshoots, for those who would prefer to have their family photos taken in a more natural environment. I look forward to hearing from you!
Happy New Year!
