“If the photographer is interested in the people in front of his lens, and if he is compassionate, it’s already a lot. The instrument is not the camera but the photographer.”
— Eve Arnold
During sessions I always like to capture individual portraits of all that are present, group portraits, couples, children and any other groupings you may wish for. I talk to you about this before we meet so that I get an idea of any groups you would like captured. I love to celebrate personalities and connection rather than very formal portraits. I do my best to create a relaxed atmosphere during a session, if a child is not happy about having their photograph taken that is ok - I deal with this on a daily basis with my own boys!! There are many ways in which we can encourage everyone to get involved and be a part of the session without feeling flustered or upset … I have seen it all!
