I undertook my first complementary commercial shoots in July (just) but with a super busy family time I haven’t had a chance to put the post together to share the images…..well here they are!
I met up with Jennie Jones from Buttons Children’s Clothing at with a few of her friends and their children to model her fantastic hand made dresses and dungarees. We found a great tree at Westonbirt Arboretum with low branches and stumps for the children to play on and once dressed it was really a case of letting them explore and play and I worked around them. Watching and observing with very little direction, we really wanted to produce natural images of the children, and this certainly suited the clothes.
I hope you enjoy the images, I’ve been photographing children for private commission portraits since 2005 and more recently for commercial use, my approach to both of these is largely the same, you work at the children’s pace and attention span, keep things simple and make it fun!
I’m in the process of sorting the shoots for August and September but if you are a local business, small or large, based within 10 miles of Malmesbury, I’m offering a half day commercial photoshoot every month for the rest of the year. This includes all post production and the images for you to use as you wish, the only stipulation being that I can share them here on my blog. Get in touch if you have any fantastic ideas, I’d love to hear them……..
