Today’s shoot has a twist… there’s also a behind the scenes video to share with you!
When Helen Schryver captured Emma, Richard, Oliver and Freya she also had Richard of FX Media capture her. The photos from the shoot are lovely and the accompanying video is a great way to show prospective clients what a shoot may be like…
Helen: “This shoot was so much fun! I’m over the moon with the finished video, I hope it shows that what I do is quite different to your typical high street studio photography experience. The vast majority of parents worry that their children won’t stay still and smile nicely for the camera on cue (once kids hit age three this is a very rare thing!) and that they’ll pretty much wreck the joint ;) As mummy to a particularly ‘lively’ three year old rascal, I totally empathise!
All my shoots take place in the great outdoors and incorporate plenty of running, jumping and playing, plus breaks for cake or ice-cream when the little ones get tired (added bonus – they’ll sleep like babies after all this action!)
The shoot took place on Whitstable beach – a fantastic location with plenty of variety and colourful beach huts which make awesome backdrops. I shoot family photography on location all over Kent, in London and even further afield but this is a favourite spot of mine. We were lucky enough to enjoy an amazing sunset too!”
And here’s how Helen got those wonderful shots…
Emma, mum of the family, was a very happy customer: “Thank you so much for a wonderful family photo shoot – we all had such a fab time! Such a fun and stress-free experience and the kids didn’t even realise they were being photographed most of the time which has resulted in such lovely natural photos. I’ve welled up looking through them, you’ve captured their personalities so well. We’ll definitely be doing this again!”
