MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT IN KENT
I recently photographed a lovely family from Sidcup in Kent (or the London suberbs depending on who you ask). Mum, dad and a cheeky little 14-month-old boy who is all set to become a big brother in a few months time. They are lucky enough to live near to some gorgeous meadows which was the perfect backdrop for this family photography session.
THE GREAT BRITISH SUMMER
You know that heatwave we had in August that seemed to just go on. And on. And on? Well, we booked this photoshoot for the day that heatwave broke in typcial thundery fashion. It was actually raining when the family woke up but after studying all 3 of my weather apps we decided to risk it and I'm so glad we did. By the time I arrived we had glorious early morning hazy sunshine.
A GORGEOUS LOCATION FOR A MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT
When we arrived at Foots Cray Meadows I did a little happy dance inside. An arched bridge. A winding river. Huge Weeping Willows. Majestic swans. Just gorgeous. I'm now secretly hoping that every photography enquiry I get is from Sidcup just so I can go back there...
The idea behind the photoshoot was to capture some images before mum got too big and uncomfortable. "I'm just finding I'm not in a very photogenic stage at the moment and it takes a lot to find a pic I'm happy with!! Hence calling in a professional!!!" is what she said. I think the photos back me up when I say she had absolutely nothing to worry about...
YOU KNOW IT'S BEEN A GOOD SESSION WHEN...
... you get photobombed by a swan!
ABOUT A BOY
What a lively little boy. He's going to be a wonderful big brother when his baby sister arrives in a few months. But they'll always have these photos of when it was just the three of them.
WHAT TO WEAR FOR A SUMMER MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT
When you book a shoot you receieve a session guide to help you get ready. It's full of advice and tips on what to wear. This family look co-ordinated, comfortable in their clothes and they've chosen outfits that won't date their photos.
