Late Autumn Family Photoshoot | Family Photography Leyland
Can't believe its taken me so long to blog this shoot, its such a lovely family shoot and it shows that you really don't need to wait for summer to book a location shoot, this one took place in a gap of just a couple of hours between heavy rain showers !
Cindy first mentioned a family shoot a few months ago, simply because they had no good pictures of the whole family and that's such a great reason to have a shoot. We all take so many pictures these days, mainly with our phones, and we record almost every detail of our lives but in a family there's almost always one person missing from the images (unless we pester a random stranger and hope they don't do a runner with the phone!!). Sadly that missing person is almost always the mum.
Now Cindy told me that she's camera shy, she doesn't like to have her photo taken and doesn't like really like to look at herself in the pictures. So I explained how I work, I'm very relaxed, I mainly stand back with a zoom lens so its doesn't feel intimidating, I give a little direction so no-one feels awkward but I don't ask people to get into poses where they are just going to feel daft. And it obviously works because although it took Cindy a little while to pluck up the courage she enjoyed the shoot, and loved the pictures, even the ones that she's in and that makes me feel incredibly happy.
Once again I've found it hard to choose which images to share, they are such a lovely family !!
So all you mums, do your kids a favour and get yourselves in some pictures with them, one day when they are older they will be so glad that you did !
