Libby called me just before Christmas and asked me to take some portraits of her two children on her property. She wanted natural portraits, nothing to posed and something that captured her children’s personalities. Libby told me that her eldest son James was full of energy, loves his pets and wished me luck keeping him still long enough to have his photo taken : )

Kate was only 6 months and just sitting up, she was a little unsure of the camera at first but soon forgot I was around when she saw her big brother, Kate absolutely adores James and lights up when he’s around!

I think this blog is a great example of how I work when photographing children. I have a long lens, so I can walk around and capture the real moments and children’s personalities. I never rush my sessions and I like to spend time talking with the children and allowing them to relax and be them selves.

Thank you for choosing me to photograph your beautiful children Libby, I had a great afternoon with your family and pets!
