Portraits for dating websites

With an increasing number of people using dating websites at some point in their lives, it’s no surprise that I recently received a request from a gentleman called Peter who wanted some photos of himself to put on a dating website. What a good idea I thought. His thinking was that if he got some professional looking photos, he could portray himself in a good light (!) with well composed photos and posed in a natural but flattering way. He wanted some outdoor photos and some studio lit ones. So after some discussion I thought we could head down to

Portraits last forever

Well it’s been a busy month. The run up to Christmas was busy with family portraits and there was a good response to my Christmas promotion. The one thing which always comes across is that people really value the photos which I have taken. It’s easy to see why. I’m not saying my photos are amazing or obviously better than any other photographer’s photos. What people appreciate is photos of their families which are well composed, well lit with nice expressions on people’s faces.  When you get all the components right the overall effect is powerful.

Amy and Andy’s pre wedding shoot

It was fun taking pictures of Amy and Andy last week up at Boscombe gardens. I hadn’t been up there for a while so I saw it through fresh eyes.

New baby portraits

It’s always a pleasure to take photos of babies. They’re not self conscious and you can try different ideas to see which work the best. I photographed this little boy’s sister a couple of years ago so it was nice to be asked to capture the newest addition to the family. Capturing different expressions makes baby photography fun! A big close up always looks good It’s always nice to capture details.

New family portraits

I’m always happy to photograph families of any age. This family were very comfortable in front of the camera especially the teenage girls. The girls just seemed to know what looks good. But that’s not always the case.  A big part of my job is to direct people, suggest poses which people are happy with and try to make them feel comfortable (or less uncomfortable!) in front of the camera. This was a fun straightforward shoot. If you want to get some photos of your family, do get in touch. It doesn’t take long but the results are well worth
