There’s noting that pleases me more and ignites my passion for what I do than the combination of beautiful light and a family to photograph. For me there is nothing better. I’m an advocate of natural family photography on location and the Vale of Glamorgan certainly has no shortage of amazing locations to pick from.
If getting in front of the camera fills you with horror and dread (it does me!) then one of my Wild & Wonder family photo sessions might be just what you are looking for. I believe in capturing authentic connection through play rather than awkward and uncomfortable posing (who likes that anyway?). It’s all about encouraging families to be themselves and to leave the photography and lighting to me. I think this session perfectly demonstrates this.
We met for the first time at the location (one of my favourites!) after lots of emails and telephone calls about clothing and logistics. The initial trepidation or THE FEAR of being photographed soon vanished as they got what I was doing. Playing. Having fun. Watching. Making sure they were in the best light but letting them freestyle. Letting them just be themselves. Nothing scary about that!
You see, being a family photographer isn’t just about being able to use your camera well. It’s so much more than that and that’s what gives me joy. It’s about light. It’s about being able to make people feel comfortable. It’s about observation and capturing the moment. Not just a likeness but something more.
