Autumnal Family Portraits
Autumn is my favourite time of year. The warm low light and the golden leaves make the best backdrop for fun, relaxed happy family photographs. Being based in Eversley, Hampshire, I am so blessed to have an abundance of beautiful backdrops in my local area and in my neighbouring towns Wokingham, Reading and Crowthorne too.
L and T are previous clients of mine, but this time they brought their little girl C with them for her first family portrait sitting. With Covid 19 and the government restrictions we made the most of the great outdoors.
C loved looking at the beautiful colours and feeling the texture of the leaves. At only 5 months old she was especially alert for a baby of her age and was fascinated by the glimmering light between the shimmering leaves.
We brought a selection of props with us to set the scene. The orange pumpkins brought out the blue colour of C’s eyes and were useful to prop C up in her adorable Burgundy dress and knitted sweater.
Colours are so important when photographing on location. The choice of clothing and especial it’s colours and patterns/textures can enhance and compliment the scene. A carefully chosen wardrobe and choice of props can give a natural setting and frame the subjects beautifully.
Capturing these precious family moments is my favourite bit of being a family photographer. These are moments any parent will look back on and cherish. C was a little angel and very comfortable with being photographed. It’s all about keeping the mood calm and drawing focus and making Mum and Dad laugh when needed too. T and L are naturals and smile without any props needed, but who would need any with this gorgeous baby in your arms.
I would love to share all their wonderful photographs with you on this post, but to see more you will have to check out our location portrait gallery. Enjoy!
