A great friend of mine, Vanessa, asked if she could come round and take photos of Edith and I so she could build her portfolio, of course I said Yes! Edith and I hadn't had any recent photos taken and I was really excited to get some new prints to hang around the house. I'm not 100% comfortable in front of the camera mainly because I do not have a model face. I'm not sure which direction to look or how to tilt my head to get the best out of my profile. I need to learn, than maybe I could look my best in every photo. I have two close friends that both have been models and standing next to them in a photo is well a bit tragic as they know how to take an amazing photo.
I like natural photos, posed photos are not for me as I want the photographer to catch me or my family in a natural setting doing very natural things. Especially, kids. Edith is a natural in front of the camera, she's natural in front of the camera because she is just being herself. Yes I understand that the camera does love some more than others and I know Edith is one of these people. I hope she never loses her comfort in front of the camera.
Vanessa came to our house and literally was only with us for 20 minutes and during those 20 minutes took the most beautiful photos of Edith and I. She asked us to talk with each other, play around a bit and of course give each other some cute cuddles and kisses. Luckily, the natural light was quite spectacular during this time.
I wanted to share these photos with you as I am so happy with the way they turned out. If you are in need of some family photos or pregnancy photo or kid photos, please do get in touch with my friend, she is so good at capturing you in your home and as she is a mama as well, she is so good with the kids.
