Family Tree – family photo shoot in Wheathampstead

Nomansland common near Wheathampstead and Harpenden has been a favourite location of ours this summer.  The fantastic climbing tree worked perfectly for this families extended family tree photo shoot for the grandma’s birthday present. We had photographed two of the childrens weddings so had previously met the whole family.  It was such a pleasure to capture these special memories for them and to see how the children had changed from when we last photographed them as bridesmaids and page boys.  Plus the new additions of course!

Cousins enjoying the sunshine

A couple of weeks ago we met up with sisters, Olivia and Charlotte and their children to capture their special friendship. Now little Edith is sitting up it was an ideal time for the shoot and the time of year was perfect. Here is a selection of our favourites. If you are interested in having your little or not so little ones photographed please feel free to get in touch for a chat. We have a studio space on the outskirts of Wheathampstead for new borns and small babies and love to use the environment for the majority of our shoots. We hope to hear from you 🙂

Family photo shoot at the studio and on location

A few weeks ago we photographed 8 month old Charlotte who was absolutely brilliant.  The family came to the studio first then we headed out to a nearby location to explore the flowers and high grasses.  This is a lovely age to photograph the next stage of a child growing up as they are sitting up unaided and are very animated.  Here are a few of their favourites.

Baby shoot in the studio

I wanted to share a few shots from a baby shoot taken in the studio.  Baby Alara was an absolute dream to photograph and such a cutie. We photograph new borns and small babies in the studio as we can control the light to create the best photos possible.  We have a daylight studio but have professional studio lighting which we use when the daylight is notof good enough quality.  A catchlight in the subjects eyes is essential to make the image come alive, if the light is dull or in the wrong direction this is not visible and the image can look dull and lifeless. When children become more active we love to photograph them outside in the environment as we can
