Gail’s approach to Family portraiture

I love taking family and children’s portraits and the best place to do that is at their home. 

I am not a fan of studio images of children. My sessions are in the clients home, garden or local park. Children are always more at ease in their own environment or place they enjoy and that’s where I get my best pictures.

I like the images to be very natural and relaxed, just capturing family life

To get good images children are best occupied with a toy or just playing with their siblings not noticing me at all. With smaller children and babies then an indoor location is best. Again being occupied with a toy or playing with Mum or Dad. My favourite light is natural light but I may use some flash heads and reflectors if needed.

I will always have a discussion with the client to determine where are the best locations for the shoot and all that’s left is to take the pictures!
