Fine art child photography
I am currently not taking on any more fine art sessions due to a change in circumstances.
I shall hopefully be ready to take new bookings in 2020. Thank you for your consideration and understanding.
These are suitable for children that are 6 years and above and that can take direction.
Limited sessions will be available on selected Saturdays.
What to wear / styling of your session.
The clothes for a fine art portrait are very important. Have a look at my pinterest board to get some inspiration from some of the worlds best fine art photographers- fine-art-portraits
Some ideas and guide lines -
Texture works great, knit, lace, tweed, tulle, velvet etc.
Plain items are much better than big and busy patterns, although ditsy floral print is fine.
Bright and clashing colours do not work either so keep the colours muted.
Another idea is to source an item of period clothing or find modern items that have a Victorian, Edwardian or a vintage feel. Or perhaps one extravagant item that you've never known what to do with!
If you are unsure, a good place to start is the humble vest and jeans. Bring along a few vests and plain tight fitting long sleeved T-shirts if you have them in darker colours preferably. I do have a few accessories you can borrow for your session. Having had 4 daughters, I do have several items for little girls.
Here's a few more ideas - A beautiful party dress or smart suit jacket. A tailored woollen coat. Peter pan collars. A statement necklace. A woollen, smart or unusual hat or headpiece. Ballet costume. Faux fur capes. Bridesmaid dress. A thin textured scarf. Statement jewellery. A good neckline. Ruffled or gathered details. A thick knitted snood with a thick knitted jumper. Braces. Tutu's.
You may have 3/4 outfit changes and each outfit can be accessorised differently for different looks.
2 different colour backdrops will also be used to compliment your outfit choices.
Please bring along any other props you would like to use in the session i.e fresh flowers, a teddy, their musical instrument, something personal to them to hold.
