Kent Family Shoot
I was so pleased to have a family photoshoot with Laura and Sam, and their beautiful children in Folkestone. It was particularly special as we photographed Laura and Sam’s wedding a few years ago, then their gorgeous son William when he was a year old. So photographing this lovely family again, to include 1 year old Fearne, was wonderful. The shoot was arranged for a date in February, which as February days can be, was grey, windy, cold and rainy! Perfect for a shoot with two little ones! We were very lucky as The Grand in Folkestone very kindly offered us the use of one of their lovely rooms, which was perfect. It was wonderful to see the love and affection between William and Fearne – one lovely moment was William doing a puppet show for his sister, very cute! One of my very favourite shots was of the whole family together, laughing at the face that Fearne was pulling. She was puffing out her cheeks and it was really funny. I think that while some ‘posed’ shots are important for a family shoot, its often those little off the cuff, unguarded moments that happen ‘between the shots’ that are the best – thats what I’m looking for throughout the shoot as they can be the most natural – and treasured by the parents.
Thanks to Laura and Sam for being such lovely people – and parents – it was a great shoot, and your children are such a credit to you!
