Firstly, you can expect to have some fun. Depending on the age of the children, I will often arrive with bubbles in hand and start with just a little play. I will ask the children to show me their bedrooms, favourite toys etc – this helps me get to know your children, and help them feel more comfortable with me – I will also be looking for the best light. I love antiques, and often try to incorporate your own favourite and sentimental pieces from around the house into the session. If your photo session is on location, please feel free to bring along anything that helps me create the story of your family. I have three children of my own, and know that children don’t sit still, and I don’t expect them to. I expect your children to run, play, sing and just be themselves. Smiles are simply wonderful, but only when they are real. You know how to best bring out the “real” smiles in your children and I will ask you to help me in this regard. Sessions usually don’t go very well when parents ask their children to sit still and smile on command.
