Family Autumn Onlocation Photographer Maidstone – Siblings Jacob & Lucas
CHAMPS IN AUTUMN
Beauty of nature incorporated in the pictures of the most special people surely result in the most unique pictures, memorable enough, to be treasured as family heirlooms!
On location photo shoots add to the beauty of the pictures as there is nothing to beat the distinctiveness of nature. Be it snow, architectural marvels, water, grass or anything else that catches your fancy, can be used creatively to form the most stunning backdrops which definitely cannot be attainted indoors. Autumn especially is all time favorite for photo shoots as the bright days coupled with the russets and reds of the leaves provide an excellent and vibrant backdrop.
It was to capture this scenic beauty in autumn, that Donna, mother of Jacob and Lucas approached me for a photo shoot of her darlings- a surprise Christmas gift for the family. I had done a shoot earlier with Donna for these boys when they were 5 years younger and as she was very much pleased with the earlier photoshoot she wanted me to add to the original collection. Mote Park, Maidstone, Kent was selected for the location as it would create a perfect and strong background and composition for the images and the fallen golden leaves would generate the most engaging photographs. The location was just right and aided in creating beautiful professional quality results.
The pictures needed to show the camaraderie between the boys and display the sibling love. Little Lucas was very cheeky and mischievous but with some games and extra persuasion he was co-operative and we managed to get some lovely shots. family autumn onlocation photographer maidstone
Blue was selected as a colour for the boys’ clothes, as blue provides a complete and powerful contrast to the fiery foliage backdrop allowing to frame and compose better and original shots. In many of the shots I used the ‘bokeh’ effect, using the shallow depth of field giving a soft blurred effect in the background to define my main objects better in the foreground. The use of the props like the dried branch and the wood stump sparked the imagination of the boys and kept them entertained and engaged. Of course the leaves couldn’t be left out as autumn is always associated with these!
The shoot was a runaway success with the bright day, the colourful foliage and two charming little gentlemen and I was able to present Donna with £250 images to choose from, she was a very happy Mummy and was extremely excited about presenting the prints as presents to her family at Christmas.family autumn onlocation photographer maidstone
Here are some of my personal favourites from the day ….
On-location photoshoots can take place at any time of the year and these images are unique, they can not be captured in that same way again, which makes them extra special. The lighting changes, as does the weather, and the character of your children is ever growing and developing. Interacting with the environment captures the essence of your child in a very different way to a studio set up, and different characteristics of your child come to the fore. Its a really lovely experience for everyone and great pictures are the result.
