Harry’s 1st Birthday Shoot

Daniel Sutherst

13 July 2019

I last saw Chris, Sarah and Harry at Harry’s Christening earlier this year, where I captured some shots of the day. So it was awesome to see him again in the more relaxed setting of Hamsterley Forest.

Me and Sarah talked before the shoot to organise some props that we could use for different posed photo ideas. So we rocked up at Hamsterley early on Saturday morning with all sorts of props, from balloons to bubbles!

We took so many shots in a short space of time because Harry was nothing but smiles!

 We started the shoot by setting up the lights just on the pathway near the carpark. The background had some lovely highlights with bright greens so to balance that exposure I used my Godox Off Camera flash kit to light Harry and Co in the foreground.

We got a great mix of shots with Harry being a little superstar! We then proceeded further into the forest to get some more playful shots in the brilliant park.

We thought this was the perfect time to bust out the bubbles. I underestimated Sarah’s bubbles, naively thinking it would be the small standard bubbles you get in the supermarkets for 50p. Instead I was amazed to find she had brought the AK47 of bubble machines, that must have covered half the forest with bubbles in under a minute! We grabbed the last few shots just as Harry was getting a little tired to finish off the shoot.

The shoot went really well and despite getting bitten by a few midges we all had a blast and managed to get 40 images that the Bain Family can look back on in years to come.

Friendly Relaxed Portrait Sessions

It brings me great pleasure when a client chooses me to capture images of their loved ones. I aim to provide a friendly and relaxed experience to all clients, which allows everyone to enjoy the photoshoot. The more relaxed you are with me behind the camera the more of your personality will show in the final images.

I have travelled to many different locations around the North East for photoshoots and just love working with new customers in different locations. All my packages include a shoot tailored to you, so if there is that one special location you have fond memories of then why not capture those memories.
