So sometimes I have quiet sessions where a newborn gently snoozes whilst I work.  Then sometimes I have kind of the opposite when excited teens and pre-teens come visit the studio to celebrate a birthday.  I’m very lucky to have such diversity in my job!

Birthday party photo shoots are such a fun and different way to let your teen or preteen celebrate with their besties on their birthday.  This group was a little larger than normal as these sessions are normally for four girls but hey, could you resist this lot?  The girls get together and design four different outfit changes – and this party planning is very much part of the fun. My young clients never cease to amaze me with their creativity and these girls outdid themselves but introducing me to two brand new sets that I have never encountered before – wellies and brollies and beachwear with coverups.  All their choices were superb and the girls were so sweet and natural in front of the camera that their friendship really shone through.

The emphasis at these sessions is on fun and confidence building – I guide the girls through every step of the session so no studio experience is necessary and I teach them a few (age appropriate) modelling tips and tricks to really give them the red carpet experience.
