Child Portrait photographer In Nottingham

Child Portrait Photography In Nottingham & Derby

I enjoy all the excitement of capturing everyone’s kids in all sorts of themed and creative ways. I have a passion for creating not just simple portraits with a plain background but creating a story within each image of your kids. This has created a reputation across the Midlands and South Yorkshire areas for fine art child portraits.

For the best results from your child photo shoot, it's best to have your kids informed of the styles that will be takens, lets get them involved makes it easier to capture those natural shots even though we are creating a story. This could be with a superhero theme to princess or fairy tale outfits and backdrops.

My Child portrait photographs are taken at comfort of our home studio or we can consider coming to you at an additional fee. Shoots in your home would require space made for a studio setups, we can not assist with moving furniture due to insurance restrictions.

I always take my time with the kids so they become relaxed and trust me which helps with getting the results you desire and deserve, I never force kids to pose, if they don’t feel comfortable with a pose we move on to something else. I will warn you i make act a fool at times to get a smile, laughter or whatever it takes to get the kids to enjoy their time. I would recommend putting your silly hats on as well to help encourage the kids to have fun and get into the spirit of the theme you have requested.

Child Portrait sessions can typically take upto 120 minutes to complete, enabling plenty of time for pre-shoot chat with you and the kids, set changes, outfit changes, test shots and final shoot. Kids are best when recently been feed and well rested, so shortly before your shoot. Most importantly; Happy faces glowing with bright eyes will help with great photos.

Due to different sizes of children, I do ask if you want a themed shoot to supply the outfits you wish them shot in, we do have a selection of props but cannot guarantee we will hold everything you need with props due to limited storage space.
