Here is a lovely shot from a recent shoot. I had a very obliging model here and he was such a natural in front of the camera. He was also very good at posing for some unsmiling shots...some of my personal favourites because they are so intense and make a real connection with the viewer. But maybe that's me...I love the natural happy shots but the serious straight faced shots really resonate with me.
I tend to do a mix of both in my shoots for some variety and it gives the parents the chance to choose between them or, as is often the case, to choose both! Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you are interested in a family photo shoot.
And don't worry if you have little ones who don't always like having their photo taken- my job is to bring out the best in everyone even the nervous or shy ones and so far, I have not failed!
