I know my talents , I can take photographs , I can bake cakes ……. but thats pretty much where it ends – I managed to get the lowest mark in the Clarinet exam in the whole of Salford when I was at school and ballet classes were not an option! So I adore seeing and photographing people with talents , and to see children immersed in their hobby is amazing , to see the dedication and passion they have , to hear about their dreams for the future is a privilege, and today I photographed 2 beautiful young ladies who taught me about their love of dance and music , what it means to them to be able to take part in shows , how much they adore the costumes and love the attention too!
Amy and Grace both do ballet and play the violin so we wanted to show this in their portraits , ton show their love of music , to show their skill and their passion
Childrens portrait sessions should be special , the images should be treasured , to look back on through the years – to hang on the wall and not hidden away on the computer and I know that these 2 girls will be featuring on the walls of the Studio very soon. Photographs should be seen every day – as you walk past the portrait in the hall or living room , to make you smile and remember that time in your childs life when dance , or drama , or Scouting , singing , karate … was THE most important thing in their lives!
Bring your children to the Studio for a Bespoke portrait – that means that it is just for that child , I look at the background , the mood and feel of the session , look at what colours to use – so every child gets photographed slightly differently according to their age, size, clothes , even the little props they may bring , a favourite toy or teddy can also be on the photograph. Let them come in their favourite Superhero costume , or their football kit , anything that clearly shows their personality , let me photograph them on their bike , or their horse , or with their very best friend in the whole world
Thank you so very much to Amy and Grace for coming along today and letting me into their world of tutus and ballet shoes , you both absolutely rocked the sessions
