EASTER CHILD PORTRAIT SESSION

Meet some little members of my family on this Easter inspired child portrait session.

This was a rare opportunity to bring all these cousins together, and although they are brilliant at amusing themselves, my sisters and I thought it would be a really enjoyable and seasonal treat to arrange an Easter egg hunt for them. If they have inherited any of our genes, they would be highly motivated by the prospect of finding chocolate, and it was a great way to get them playing outside. It was also an opportunity to photograph the five of them together, as they are at this point in time.

I look at these children, four of whom by some twist of fate are in the same year at school and am constantly amazed by how different their personalities are.

There is Jack who loves anything to do with diggers and can tell you how a combustion engine works. Fynn likes making things from cardboard, and will see potential in any empty packet. Jasmine wants to be the prime minister of Russia (because, she says “it is the biggest country in the the world”) Our little one Laurie currently wants to be a teacher and teach people about dragons. He loves wielding swords. Amy is slightly younger, and completely fearless. She was riding a bike without stabilisers at the age of two – such is the motivational force of an older brother.

I know that in a few years time my sisters and I will look back on these images and be so pleased I took them, as Jack, Fynn, Jasmine, Laurie and Amy will be different children by then. Right now they have the wonderful conviction that anything is possible.

After tree climbing, running around and painting real eggs, they searched for the chocolate eggs. I couldn’t quite believe how many eggs they collected, (my sisters and I had gone slightly overboard!) as I found them sitting on the kitchen floor with their chocolate hoard, tucking in.

    Whilst the first photo was unfolding I started to smile, then look at the eyes of the children on the second photo. Its nice to see the light on the girls hair it really brings it out. Two boys wearing wellies then sugar and spice and all things nice on the next bench. Great images balance and colour. The real important point is you most be very happy with these. One complaint on the introduction it advised us to have a cup of tea well I had three. Keep up this great work and don’t worry about publishing any comments let them know you’ve got what many would love.
