Family portraits in my hometown of Kendal, Cumbria – on a nice Spring Day Kendal is hard to beat, we have so many beautiful locations on our doorstep !
Where some photographers specialise in, erm, well, everything – I try to keep my work on track by specialising in Social Photography, mainly Weddings and Children and of course families. I love photographing the innocence of children, they respond well to the child in me, pulling silly faces and making daft noises, it makes me laugh, it also makes me cry – the sheer emotion when people see the images captured can cause a very happy tear.
When downloading these images my Fiance, Rachel did actually shed a tear, it seems these images evoked such an emotion that I had previously not seen when taking the photographs. Rachel was with me when we captured the images, we all see different things and what I saw was different to what she saw.
I try and anticipate what will happen next, of course to a certain extent I do influence it but largely when photographing children you just have to go with it, what will be, will be, as they say !
Heather and Mark are so lovely, they have 3 children and they invited me to to come and spend some time with them and take some photographs. Upon arrival the little guys were expecting Woody ( of Toy Story fame ) so were a little bemused when Ian Woody the photographer turned up !
We soon hit it off though and they complied, I have to say these little guys are an absolute credit to Heather and Mark, very polite and witty little chaps !
We had a vague plan, solid plans are never a good idea where kids are involved so went for it, 2 x locations, home and a walk in the park – I had a fantastic time and although it is Spring, an awful lot of Autumn was still around !
