So on Sunday I went on a short walk around Bollington with a policeman.
You will hear me at length talking about how what your children wear makes a huge difference to a photo. But in true documentary photography dictates that as with news documentary photography you don't interefere with your subjects and you don't change the scene...
I always give my clients some advice about what to wear on their photo shoots but I was delighted that mum was so keen to get a coherent and subtle look for the family. She did a fantastic job and their wonderful gallery really shows how much clothing can really make a difference.
It was fantastic to shoot baby Evie's newborn photos. It was a bit déjà vu because only 3 years ago I did the same for her big sister, and they are so much alike. They were also great models, nice and sleepy ..
Just over 3 months ago I had the pleasure of photographing his birth, and it came with a bit of a surprise. It was a gorgeous home water birth. But the midwife didn't arrive in time so me & dad ended up being the ones to deliver him.
Whilst in France I caught up on some online photography courses I have signed up for this year. The course which grabbed me, and completely fitted the light around us in France was Light Seekers Breakout by Clickin Moms.
