On Tuesday evening I met up with the winners of my recent competition - a free photo shoot in Pittville Park's fabulous new playground!
The playground only opened a couple of weeks ago and I have taken my own children to it, on both occasions every inch of park was covered by a child! This got me thinking and so my suggestion of en early evening shoot proved to be a good idea!
I met up with Geraldine and her boys, Thomas, William, Oscar, Felix and Archie, by the zip line. I had picked the winners at random so had no idea of the age of the children. It made a refreshing change to have some slightly older subjects. We all had a great time! The boys seemed keen to show me how daring they could be! Some climbed onto the top netting of the tower structure while others scaled up wooden beams! Full on fun!
I hope you like the photos. A normal mini park session costs £50 and includes all digital files. To book just give me a call on 07983 465414 or send me a form via my contact page. Thanks!
Last Sunday was jam packed full of photo shoots, this was the first of 6. Sisters, Robyn and Matty, had a lovely time as I casually took their photographs. As with all my photo shoots, the emphasis is on having fun, there is never any pressure for the children to perform in front of the camera. It's all about letting them have fun and enjoying themselves.
Last Tuesday I had the pleasure of photographing 18 month old Elsa at Pittville Park. She's a lovely little girl who I have photographed before. Mum and Dad were keen to be in a few but primarily wanted up to date photos of her.
I love this time of year; the light is just beautiful and the kids are fascinated by all the colours and leaves on the floor.
This was a really fun photo shoot at Pittville Park with Maria and her 11 year old son Ben. It made a refreshing change to photograph a slightly older child, (most of my clients are cutesy babies and toddlers!) Yet despite Ben reaching the 'embarrassment' age, as he called, his Mum still managed to sneak a quick kiss out of him and he also told me at the end of the shoot, in the tone of surprise, that it had been really good fun. An 11 year old boy is probably going to be my toughest critic so I'll take the compliment!
I came highly recommended to Andra Grossman by a close friend of hers who I have done a few photo shoots for now. These ladies are good friends who have come to Cheltenham through their husband's work. They call themselves the American contingency and apparently I've completely won over the other side of the Atlantic! Andra was a great laugh with a great family. I hope you like the photos.
