Last week I went to see the lovely Harman family to show them the photos from our session in Speldhurst a couple of weeks previous.
In our telephone consultation we had spoken about each of the children, each of their characters, Kate, their mum explaining that some were shyer than others in front of the camera. We also talked about the location we would take the photos and decided on a local woods in Speldhurst where they had often gone walking as a family.
The woods was a great choice, as it was lovely and cool and all the children were very relaxed, they showed me the route they used to take and along the route we stopped and took photos.
In my sessions I like to bring out the colours of the natural landscape and create classical images that also draw out the character of each child. I hope that I have achieved that here.
I was really pleased with the results and I was happy that that The Harman family loved their images as much as I did. The gallery viewing went well, and together we worked out which images best suited their needs, whether it was for family relations, to hang on the wall of the children’s bedrooms or to have in the family sitting room.
And my favorite image of all came as we were returning to the car and the session was technically over, and we passed a hay bale field. I was over the moon when Emily agreed to climb over the fence and have one final picture, definitely one for the portfolio.
