A Family Portrait Like No Other

Family Portrait Photography on Location with Kelly Jo

I had worked with this wonderful family several years ago and when Julia came to me for a meeting to discuss ideas for a very different family portrait I was very excited.  Julia was insistent that she wanted a unique portrait that gave you loads to look at while capturing the essence of who they are as a family.  I had the idea of cramming as many of the family’s belongings as possible into a space that was relevant to them.  We ended up in a stable filled with a porridge bowl, books, wellies, sports kits, cooking stuff, magazines, clothes, equipment and lovely little clues as to who each one of them are.

The shot took 3 hours to dress and comprises of lots of different images blended together to ensure the lighting was correct.  This has to be one of the most satisfying shots I’ve taken, such a lot of detail work, just what I love!  What do you think?

An Autumn walk in the countryside – in shirtsleeves?

Something strange is happening this October – we had beautiful blue skies and eighteen degrees of warm sunshine on our backs.  With perfect conditions for a stroll through the fields, Lottie bounded around in ditches and hedgerows, while Sam recovered from a poke in the eye from Ben. Then Sam chuckled to himself when Ben squelched his Converse into a fresh cowsplat. We had lots of fun on our little walk and it was a true pleasure to join this happy family on their warm, sunny Saturday afternoon.
