When Nicole came to see me about a family portrait shoot, it became obvious that we should do the shoot on the farm. Photographing Jono and their two boys Campbell and William in the studio didn't make any sense at all. They were farm boys and we needed to capture them in their element. We had so many options, the cubby house, a wonderful old tree, a rustic farm gate and a shearing shed gave us so many options for locations and backgrounds, and the boys didn't get sick of having the picture taken in the same spot. There was a bit of resistance at the start of the shoot, but that is quite normal. The one thing that I can offer in situations like this is time. Time for everyone to relax, and get used to the fact that I an there, and that I am taking pictures, and eventually we get what we need.
Nicole was delighted with the pictures that we did for her and sent us a really nice email thanking us, along with a picture of their family portraits up on the wall. We really love hearing that we have happy customers out there!
"We were given the opportunity to have family photos done my Philip and I got to pick them up yesterday! Saying they are perfect and more than what I expected is an understatement, I couldn’t be more happy and thankful to Philip for capturing such precious moments of my family! Thanks again "
