When clients book in for a portrait session, I always encourage them to make their session truly about THEM. As I capture their story with my creative eye, I want their collection of images to not only be about what they look like at this time in history, but WHO they are and what makes them happy. I want to capture their personalities, their loves, their relationships and the things that bring them joy or inspire their everyday lives. When Sasha emailed me to book in a session for her family, we locked in a date about 4-6 months ahead. Over the coming months through our emails and exchange of ideas, I was able to get a real feel for the type of people they are and what they love about life. A truly sweet, quirky, fun loving family.
Co-incidentally, just a few weeks before our session, I heard that the very talented Tash from Whimsy Petite Styling was looking at making her cute caravan “Nellie” available for session hire. So I jumped at the chance to book her for this family session as I knew it would be perfect for them! After liaising with Tash to see if she was available, I then contacted Sasha and told her about Tash’s wonderful styling and the delightful “Nellie”. Sasha had been looking at different prop hire items like vintage couches and some funky cafe locations, but when she heard about Tash and “Nellie” there was no question but to lock it in! It was them to a tea. We all had a wonderful afternoon together and I had an amazing time capturing Tash’s beautiful styling around this delightful young family as they spent time with one another. Enjoy! Maddie x
