Fine-Art Portrait sessions are often suited to single subjects but in this case I produced some fine-art and family portraits for a small family. With Autumn leaves colouring the natural world in beautiful yellow and brown tones it’s remiss not to head out and make the most of the season.
On this occasion we’d headed just short of the North Norfolk Coast to a beautiful area of park land complete with lots of mature deciduous trees in the process of dropping carpets of leaves. It was just me, mum and dad, their son and pet dog, and we managed to take lots of individual portraits of a wonderfully photogenic young man on his own and then with his parents and best fur buddy. Sometimes people are a little scared of Autumn and Winter shoots but needn’t be. Lets face it, chunky knits are clothes that just make you feel good, scarfs are just great accessories and the light particularly in these winter months is low and soft: perfect for portraits and saturation of lovely subdued colours. On this occasion, the little man even accessorised with the most wonderful flat cap owing to his part Yorkshire heritage.
We headed out onto a woodland trail, found some great trees surrounded by a carpet of leaves, then headed further into the woods, it was a great morning followed by a nice warm hot chocolate from a local tearoom: perfect!
I hope you like a small sample of the images produced during this session, it was great fun, and as it’s not the family’s first shoot with me, I hope to see them again at some point in the future.
