Whitchurch Shropshire Family Photographer – The Shaw Family
Whitchurch Shropshire Family Photographer – Lucy, Andrew + Emmy
Earlier on in the year, I ran a competition on my Facebook page to win a Whitchurch Shropshire Family Photographer for a shoot of you choice. Randomly selected, The Shaw Family were my winners!
We utilised a beautiful picturesque part of Whitchurch – The Greenfields Nature Reserve which links down to the Shropshire Union Canal. The buttercups were out creating an amazing sea of yellow in the first lot of photos and then rescued horses that frolic in the fields and were incredibly friendly that we got photos with them too!
The family dogs came along to for a bit of photo action, it was so lovely to capture the relationships that Lucy, Andrew and Emmy have with them. They are a massive part of their family too.
My approach was the same as all my other shoots that I let Emmy guide us and we went with the flow of that. It is great to get a family photo in the bag near the beginning of the shoot and then its great to let the kids be kids. Let their character shine through. If they strop/have a melt down, it is what it is – which can also make great photos too!
With an approach this wey, it keeps the kids interested and I am happy to work around them. When they are playing and like Emmy I follow them from a distance and capture the kids in beautiful light and lovely moments.
Please feel free to look at more family shoots on the blog. I think its so important to capture photos of you and your family and for someone to do it for the parents to so they can be in on the action! I purposefully arrange a shoot for me and my family with professional photographers at least once a year, I want photos with my little ones and want them to have photos with me too to look back on and rememeber good times!
