Fine Art Childrens Photography
Photoshoot Location: Chelmsford Essex
Studio Photographer: Nathalie Delente
Childrens photography is where I started my business about five years ago. Over the years the weddings have really taken over and become my primary work, so when I get the opportunity to go back in the studio I really love it!
Being a mother of two girls it is so easy to dress them up and practice on them but for this shoot, I really wanted a boy.
I don’t tend to shoot lots of fine art male images, so I was delighted and very excited when a previous client of mine said she would like to bring her son, Bobby, to the studio.
“You don’t take a photograph, you make it” Ansel Adams
Like the quote suggests above, I wanted to create a series of looks for the photoshoot. I wanted to make the photographs rather than simply taking them.
What I love about fine art studio shoots is that my clients trust me to have a vision and give me free reign to create that vision.
To do this, I draw on all sorts of sources. From considering the backdrop I want to use, to planning the lighting and also the clothing, hairstyle and props.
In preparation for this shoot, I bought an oversized, chunky knitted orange jumper and dug out my box of dressing up treasures which include a load of materials, brooches and hair pins.
For one of the images, I wanted to reference the work that Bobby’s dad does by using the garden spade as a prop.
During the shoot, we worked through a series of poses using the different clothes and props. I have to say that Bobby was an absolute natural at modelling and did the most fantastic job!
