family portrait

Outdoor Family portrait

Today I would like to talk about family and child portraits.. I can shoot portraits in the studio for the white background look which is so in fashion just now. I can also shoot on location, usually a local park or back garden. This is my favourite way to work, using available light, getting children and parents to run around and have fun. Kids can sometimes be intimidated by a studio, especially young children. Working outdoors you can turn it into a game and the kids forget they are getting their picture taken.

A good example of this was a shoot that I did last spring for a friend. For the first ten minutes the little girl was a wee angel, any time I pointed the camera at her she would stop and smile at the camera.

After a while though she decided she had had enough, it got to the point where when I pointed the camera at her she would stop, cross her arms and look at the ground.

This played into my hands though, I much prefer candid portraits as opposed to posed portraits. Once the little girl stop being co-operative I just got the family to interact with each other, playing games and running around. All the time I was in the background snapping away getting great shots.

One of the last shots was this one, and it is one of my favourite family portraits I have taken.
