Angel series

Fine Art Children's Photography : Angels

Beautiful images for my angel children series.

Fine Art photography for me is about expressing some universal emotions and notions of our time and especially depicting some quality and observed issue for our children.

Here I was exploring our children's vulnerabilities, their innocence, pressures, hopes and dreams, and their lightness.

I wanted to express how I feel children are angels to their parents, because they allow us to taste compassion and unconditional love, where we gladly sacrifice time, energy and resources for them, just so we know they are happy.

They stay for a time, then they grow up, teaching us they are not there to permanently activate this love in us but rather to show us that we can be loving and selfless, so we can continue to do it when they are no longer children, for the rest of the world.

Little Jupiter's bubble bath and cuddle time session

Sweet little Jupiter at 6 months old had the best bath time photography session. In my home studio, I use natural light and studio lights, capturing some whimsical softly lit images for bathtime, and some clear traditional studio images for classical portraits.

I style the session depending on the preferences of the parent, choosing and guiding in style the backdrops, clothes and props.

A little bit of bathtime makes for the best images, as your baby is contained and entertained. A wonderful way to capture their curiosity and gorgeous expressions.

After bath play time is incredibly fun, slipping around in the soap or snuggling in a blanket.

When your baby needs some cuddle time, or a feed, some beautiful images can be captured showing the special bond between parent and baby.

Some classic baby portraits can also be captured, showing their cute curiosity and their small adorable features.

It's a wonderful time to capture some beautiful portraits of your baby having those special cuddles. Having a studio portrait session, means you can show breastfeeding and skin to skin portraits in privacy and comfort.

If you're interested in a baby session for your precious little treasure, please contact me to arrange all your session details.

Immy and Kendall's fine art session

A special time for a Mummy and Me session is a gift to yourself and your child, that will be treasured and remembered for always. I wanted to create a magical session with Immy and Kendall, showing their sweet natures, and simple beauty. Alot of the props in this session come from Immy's collection of saved gems. I find alot of my clients have special little items that work in so well with my style, I love to use them in the shoot, as it becomes very personal.

Capturing your child's innocence and beauty.

Dressing up is a part of the fun of the session, the child is engaged because their imagination is stimulated. I love creating simple styles, where one or two items are used, and the portrait focuses on the simple elements, and the child's whimsical expressions, and cute little features.

Some stunning portraits showing the beautiful connection between mother and child is an absolute honor. When I take these images, I have in mind creating a portrait as a large print on the family wall, which stands out as special and timeless. 

I have a background in fashion and beauty photography, so Im always looking to take some beautiful portraits of the mum in the session. I think its a beautiful gift for the parent to be witnessed in a beautiful light, and is an invaluable lesson for the child to see their mother as beautiful and willing to be seen as so. 

I love to set up a styled session, taking inspiration from old master painters. A connection and referral to simpler times, where beautiful objects and artworks of still lifes were decadent and moody.

I love capturing a simple and understated portrait, where the child is natural, and doesnt have to put on a big cheesy grin. Capturing their neutral expressions, lets those subtle expressions and thoughts in the eyes emerge.

Fine Art Children's Photography - Jess and Scarlet

A beautiful session, where the child gets to dress up and take time to let their imagination play, and feel special under the bright lights. 

I look for a neutral sweet expression, gently guiding their pose and expression to create an image that shows their innocence and their gentle spirits.

A variety of looks and poses are captured, especially those family and friend cuddles, which are always a magical and much loved part of the session.

The children love the attention, and the special quality of the session.

They respond easily to my gentle but confident guidance, and praise. I never push them into unnatural poses or expressions, but instead see how they naturally look and guide them with gentle adjustments. 

The family portraits are always offered in the session, and any family member can join in.

The little ones in our life change so quickly and life can be so fast paced, the years can fly past. Spending the time in a precious portrait session that captures their stillness and grace, is an invaluable present for your children and family members, and will be treasured for always. 

Fine Art Children Photography - Staged

A Fine Art Portrait should be one that correctly captures the individual being photographed, but also adds a story that compliments their personality. I aim to create works that are not like ordinary photographs that we take of our selves or our loved ones, but are special and unique, and show the subject slightly in another world.

In my Fine Art sessions, I treat the individual being photographed much like they are sitting for a painting portrait. I make sure they are comfortable, and create a beautiful flattering lighting set up, that brings out their features. I then gently guide them in their pose and expression.

I aim to create a few different looks that involve changes in lighting, clothing and mood. This creates a gallery that is varied and beautiful. 

Capturing expressions that are genuine and innocent is my goal, and as the subject relaxes and becomes used to being photographed their beautiful personality emerges.

These images will be kept throughout the individuals whole lifetime. As they grow and change, they will look back on them, and their families will keep and cherish them always.

If you, or someone you know, are interested in a Fine Art Portrait session, just contact me and we can plan something magical.
