Session Inspiration #2 – Vale of Glamorgan Child Photographer

Here’s number 2 of my series of posts to inspire you for your 2017 session. Throughout this series I’ll be showing you examples of different sessions, giving you inspiration about locations and ideas of the time of year and the time of day the sessions took place (this can make a HUGE difference).

I love living in the Vale of Glamorgan. I’ve lived here for almost 18 years and I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Why would I? As a photographer there are so may diverse locations to use as a backdrop for sessions. Last year this was one of my favourites – Llantwit Major beach. It’s got everything for me really. It’s tucked away and rarely that busy, it’s got a rugged and romantic coastline with rock pools galore, a coastal path that’s scattered with wild flowers and grasses and even fields with hay bales (yes you heard me right) all within a stones throw of the car park. Ticks all my boxes right there. I shot here a lot last year. I was able to change the feel to match the personality of each family using the light and the diverse landscape. This session is a perfect example – I hope it gives you a little session inspiration for 2017.

I’m going to be honest here. These hay bales aren’t easy to get to but we had fun trying. We traversed a stream and climbed a wall but we had fun trying!

Like the look of this session? As a guide this shoot took place in July and was shot in the evening at about 8pm. This is the perfect time for a summer session. The sun is much lower in the sky which gives a softer feel and you get the amazing golden light that I love SO much.

I have already pre-booked roughly half of my location sessions this year already so if you’d like to pre-register your interest in grabbing one of the remaining sessions slots it’s dead easy and FREE. Summer is always the busiest time of year for me and by popping yourself on my list you’ll get first choice of available spaces. Just click here, leave me your details and I’ll get back to you soon.

Until next time,
