Outdoor Portrait Photography provides beautiful natural backdrops to images particularly on a sunny evening at a local park. With lots of energy, even with a week of school behind him, the park made the perfect location for a portrait session with this young man. Along with mum, we explored tree lined avenues, a ruined ancient house, a riverside quay and even had some time to throw stones in a particularly huge puddle: it’s not all hard work being a photographer.

Along the way we looked for beautiful spots, beautiful light, and to capture this ‘man in the making’s’ personality. From cheeky smiles, to contemplative moments, fun moments, to laughing out loud. Running, climbing, sitting, playing, thinking, smiling, a little posing and just being proud of his gate climbing skills! It was a great way to document a little slice of life for this young man, his family and him with portraits I hope will be looked at for many years to come.

This was a “fine art” portrait session concentrating my energies on photographing a single subject, the many facets of his personality and on a beautiful evening. I’m conducting more of these sessions now and they can take place at any point in the year, from summer with it’s long evenings, to winter with warm winter clothing and a little bit of frost on tall plants and trees. Get in touch if you’d like a session.

My “fine art portrait sessions” concentrate on the individual subject and aim to produce stunning portraits that are not only beautiful but also display personality and character. The sessions are particularly good for children’s portraits concentrating on a single child and can be purchased as a gift using my gift vouchers.

On a recent shoot we took advantage of the beautiful evening sunshine and a natural outdoor setting of a Norwich based park to produce some photographs of a lovely young lady who positively shone in front of the camera both with confidence and personality. As a photographer it’s wonderful to be able to concentrate your efforts on capturing aspects of an individual and the “fine art” sessions give me far more time to capture nuances and moments.

I hope you like a small sample of the images produced, and can see how different aspects of personality can be caught in these sessions while concentrating the attention on the individual.

Two little fellas I’ve photographed a few times now were with me for another portrait session not long ago. As a portrait photographer it’s always great to have repeat bookings from clients. There’s less self-consciousness, more understanding between photographer and subjects and well a little bit more fun on offer.

Brothers and sisters have their own dynamic, these guys ping off each other, gain confidence in each other’s company and some would say get a little cheekier given half a chance.

This was a “fine art portrait session” where I was concentrating on the boys solely. With mum and dad we looked for great natural evening light and then used it as a natural backdrop to some photographs which hopefully display the personality and character of the boys.

I hope you like the photographs and if you’re interested in a portrait session then please let me know.

I provide a variety of portrait shoots for different clients ranging from baby sessions for new families, to small family groups with one or two children, all the way up to family gatherings typically involving about 10-20 people. However, I’ve recently started to offer “Fine Art Portrait Photography” sessions which are based upon high quality portraits of the individual, and are typically aimed at parent’s who’d like stunning images of their children.

There’s a slightly different approach to these sessions. First and foremost the Fine art portrait photography sessions aim to produce images in beautiful outdoor locations. This is because there’s simply no canvas or interior which can look as beautiful as natural settings combined with great natural light. To get the best of the natural light, these sessions will concentrate on the times of day that have the most beautiful light i.e: morning and late afternoon to evening. To shoot at this time of day with younger children often requires a slightly shorter session as they’ll often get tired easily particularly in the early evening. Finally, the camera lenses used for this type of shoot are dedicated professional lenses for portraits, which make distracting foregrounds and backgrounds absolutely beautiful and concentrate your eye on the subject of the photograph.

For this session, we photographed in the early evening mainly in a water meadow full of natural flowers and the odd tree or two. We then moved to a nearby woodland to shoot a few more images looking for pockets of evening light which on this occasion were a little few and far between. Hopefully you’ll agree that the images produced are lovely, and that the young lady’s personality shines through in what are still natural images.

I’m very lucky to photograph some great clients that make my family photography sessions an absolute joy. For this family photography session we gathered a rather large and adventurous family for an outdoor walk which turned out to be a little more like a trek but thankfully everyone had a great time.

I memorised at 16 names for this shoot, it’s something that I like to do before big family sessions as particularly when you’re photographing a large group, you simply need to know who you’re talking to at all times. When we arrived at our location of choice I set about putting names to faces and then we proceeded to head off, intent on giving everyone a bit of exercise, fun and some photographs to remember the day by before the family went their separate ways after the shoot.

I’m glad to say that it wasn’t only the children who had a sense of adventure on this shoot, the young adults and older adults alike were all game for a bit of a laugh and this made for some slightly crazy but fun photographic opportunities, including almost all of the family in a very large tree. After a slightly wrong turn looking for a particularly picturesque spot we did end up walking a little further than anticipated but I comfort myself in thinking that the extra exercise was recompensed by the large picnic planned upon the sessions’ conclusion.

If you’d like photographs of a large family gathering then please feel free to get in touch. I hope you like a small selection of the photographs produced on the day below.
