Mother & Daughter Portraits, Guildford, Surrey.
Finally, I can show these photos from a lovely mother and daughter portrait session that I photographed back in July. The reason I haven’t posted sooner is because the photos were taken as a surprise birthday gift for this lady’s husband, so I thought it safest to wait until after the event, just in case!
I first met the lovely mum who booked this session when she came along for a 1-1 photography tutorial with me. At the time she’d mentioned wanting to have a portrait session with her daughter and so, on her birthday this July, which happened to be one of the hottest days of the year, we got together to make it happen.
I really wish now that I’d photographed the room when we’d laid out all their clothes, jewellery and accessories, because there wasn’t a clear surface left in the place, and that wasn’t counting my gear and all my makeup artist’s stuff too; I think they brought pretty much the entire contents of their wardrobes, so there was no shortage of choice.
After having some pampering time with hair and makeup artist, Marijelle Moreno, they both took it in turns to have some individual shots done first, and then we got them together for some lovely mum and daughter images. I love the outfits they chose to bring along and their beautiful expressions.
This is something I would encourage all mums to do, as I don’t think they’re often quite as keen to step in front of the camera, but they really should. And what a lovely way to spend some time together, with the added bonus of having a really special memento of the day too.
You can see at the bottom of this post the gorgeous boutique box of matted prints which they ordered, together with a personalised USB drive of their favourite shots. In our digital age, I’m a firm believer in providing my clients with beautiful prints as well as digital images, so they have the best of both worlds.
