Child Portraits

When I photograph children, I focus on capturing the child completely unposed in his or her natural environment and in natural situations.

I search for more than a happy face smiling at my camera and I believe that all emotions and expressions are interesting and can make for a beautiful portrait: seriousness, curiosity, thoughtfulness, joy – even boredom.

Together we will choose a location which means something to your child – a place where he or she feels safe and is used to coming. Most importantly it needs to be a place where your child can do something actively on their own. It can be at your own home, or it can be an outdoor location such as the local playground, a park, the woods etc.

During the session I will follow your child around with my camera in order to capture expressions and emotions as they happen. Sometimes I will interact with him or her in order to create some slightly directed environmental portraits, but most of the session will take place as a normal documentary session. As a parent all you have to do is be present and make sure that your child is feeling safe and happy.

I offer one standard package which can be booked for portraits of up to two children. If you would like portraits of three or more children you can choose one of my documentary packages.
