Child photography, or rather, a quite wonderful ‘whole-family’ photography session. With Ellis, Jake and mum – and some pancakes, scooters and trees that wanted climbing.
Child Photography in Newbury
Ellis & Jake
In this post you can see lots of shots that document Jake and Ellis wonderfully engaged in the things they like doing. But you can also see more ‘real life’ scenes and familial interactions, which arose naturally through the process of this family session with mum.
Play is family, family is play
As the morning went on, play activities naturally chopped and changed from trees to scooters to trampolines. And the ‘playees’ (yep – just made the word up) naturally shifted from individuals to groups of twos and then threes and back again. In fact, by the end of the session I felt like I experienced a kind of ‘life lesson’ about play in family and family in play – for which I was grateful.
‘Documentary photography’ in child photography
As a documentary family photographer I aim to show the simple and amazing feat of ‘people being people’. And if, in 10 years time the people in my photographs are doing things like these guys here, I’ll be a happy family photographer. Take a look at this selection of photos of an awesome trio being just that – themselves, together.
What do you think of this session?
If you’d like to know more about how family sessions work, just follow the family photography pages. They are super-flexible are simply crafted around what’s fun and what’s normal for the little people.
