On Christmas Eve I spent the morning with Peter, Susan and their family who had travelled from various places to be together. Peter’s son-in-law came to collect me (in his 4×4) from the outskirts of Tring because the road up to the house was narrow, steep and still covered in a generous layer of very slippy compacted ice.
I spent a very enjoyable hour (or so) with the family, taking various group shots and finding out a little about everyone.
Family, Out and About
Lots of smiles here!
Daniela (from Leighton Buzzard) and her three friends arrived at the studio on Saturday afternoon for a shoot. It was a 30th Birthday surprise for one of the girls and I think they were planning to have a drink or two in Berkhamsted once the shoot was completed.
The studio was switched from my families/children/baby set up where I use the raised stage, to a full height arrangement; the stage comes apart and is moved out of the way, I then utilise a white vinyl backdrop which is unrolled to cover the back wall and the floor.
After a brief chat with the 4 young ladies, it was clear that they wanted very informal, natural group shots. I think above all, they wanted to have some fun!
For 25 minutes or so, I made suggestions for poses that I thought would work well and for the remainder of the session, the girls used their own imagination and tried out lots of different things from Charlie’s Angels to piggyback rides!
Daniela and her friends were great fun to work with. I hope you enjoyed yourselves at the shoot and later on during your evening out on the town!
