Mid way through March already and in a couple of weeks the clocks will “Spring Forward” meaning we will be getting more daylight. After feeling the warmth of the sunshine at the weekend I know I am definitely ready for some sunny photo play days.
As well as planning pre-wedding shoots for the lovely couples who have booked me as their wedding photographer I am looking forward to some Lifestyle sessions too.
Lifestyle sessions are usually held outdoors in the natural light at a location of your choice. Somewhere special to your family. It could be the park, woods, the hills or the beach. You can even bring the dog! They are not all about sitting and posing more about capturing natural moments. The smiles, laughter and loving looks make for the best photographs. They show your family or you and your partner having fun and can tell a story, without saying a word.
It is a good idea to choose clothes that co-ordinate with the rest of the family or your other half, but that are not exactly the same. Choose a colour scheme with a few different shades or colours to mix and match. Jackets that can be taken off to create a different look. Don’t be afraid to show your personalities, after all, these are YOUR photos. Ladies go all out with a colourful necklace, earrings or scarf. Gents, how about rocking a flat cap or straw trilby? Fun shoes also make a good photograph.
Oh and props, well they are ALWAYS welcome.
If in doubt you can always pop over to my Pinterest boards for inspiration.
So if you do fancy having two hours of fun, whilst getting photographed then please email me.
