When working with little ones……
Amongst all the weddings September brings, we are still busy with the family shoots. Today took us to the beach. A lovely family on holiday with there beautiful little girl in tow. Our brief was great family shots, very beachy and with a lovely holiday feel. The sun shone although it wasn’t hot, which was perfect for us all.
What we weren’t told was that the lovely little one was terrified of the sand! we found a sand boat, that worked for a bit, but really and truly we weren’t getting her at her best. We knew we had to move on before the ‘magic window of toddler time’ was over. It can be very short before you lose them altogether and the moment doesn’t come back…even with chocolate buttons!
So we moved to what is know as ‘The Island’ grass, sea and beach in the background. Verdict: didn’t like grass either, never had!
It sounded mad, it was Rickys suggestion, but blooming heck it worked! we ended up in a beach car-park. She loved the stability of the concrete beneath her feet. She ran and laughed and gurgled and became the confident cute little girl she was.
When working with kids….you have to go with it, with them and their wants and needs. We got some great work that I am sure will make it onto the wall and the family christmas cards this year. It was a lovely afternoon all round, and the car park had a sea view!!!
