Down on the Farm

09 June 2018

The great British weather forced us to reschedule this shoot but at the second time of asking the rain held off and we managed to get some lovely shots of James and Holly on their family farm in Downholme, North Yorkshire.

 

Holly and James were really relaxed in familiar surroundings.

“We stumbled across the old Ford tractor that was hiding in a barn. This was a unbelievable find and a perfect symbol of a farm photoshoot.”

It was a very cloudy day with little to no sun shining through but we carried on regardless and I’m so glad we did! It just goes to show that you don’t always need perfect lighting conditions and a load of sun beaming down on you to get great shots, the most important thing is that you have fun and the children enjoy themselves.

We started the shoot just playing in the gardens surrounding the farm and managed some lovely shots with the help of some bubbles (everyone loves bubbles). We then moved onto the side garden which gave some great background colour to the portrait of Holly and a few playful images of James going down the slide.

After a few go’s on the slide we made our way round the farm and stumbled across the old Ford tractor that was hiding in a barn. This was a unbelievable find and a perfect symbol of a farm photoshoot. The barn was extremely dark so I had to use flash where possible to get some light into the shot and a very high ISO but they came out really well and showed a true sense of what it’s like to be on a farm.

We had a great end to the session taking some more candid shots on the lawn outside the front of the house with some lovely interaction between Catherine, Dan (Mum & Dad) and the kids.

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.
