When Hannah + Elodie’s Mum first got in touch she told me that she urgently needed family portraits because god forbid something should ever happen to her, her daughters would have nothing to look at and remember her by. Mum and Dad both stoically avoid the camera through a belief that they are “unphotogenic”. I find this whole concept completely tragic and we set about fixing the situation immediately.
Conveniently the girls’ grandparents were also visiting from Europe so we managed to capture some precious portraits of the kids with their beloved grandparents too. Mum also mentioned before the shoot that the girls were ‘quite extroverted’ – well that was putting it lightly! I love a boisterous child, they are so much fun to photograph, their kids acting up or refusing to sit still at their portrait session is most parents nightmare, but for me it means so much more variety, and a lot more laughing! That said, as a shy kid myself, I love the quiet ones too!
