As a family & portrait photography Essex, I had the privilege of capturing some images of a young family, and a mother and baby, recently. Babies change so much and very quickly, and photographs help to document these changes as they go through their young lives. Mums, dad and even the babies themselves will love going through the images in the years to come, and remember particular moments in time – and they’ll never fail to bring a smile to the face. Moreover, the images can be framed, put on canvass or made into the most beautiful presents for family and friends.
It goes without saying that having a relaxed, fun and informal atmosphere with lots of colourful props at these family shoots is a must. Allowing plenty of time, but knowing when the babies have had enough of the camera for that day is also vital. Families have to be able to feel comfortable and left to be themselves to achieve some great shots. Here’s a peek at some of the images from this shoot.
