Family Portrait Shoot – The Bakers

by | Oct 29, 2020 | Families, Modern Portraiture

The family portrait shoot for the Bakers was the first family session that I had in the new studio.

The Bakers had not had a professional shoot together before and looked forward to having some commemorative images for the family.  I suggested a number of wardrobe changes to compose different looks and they chose three, two smart and one casual.  Poor Cairo realised he had left his casual trousers at home!  But we managed to disguise this with some strategic posing!

I use triangles to pose groups and this was really effective in the casual images against the white seamless.   Theon being the littlest family member took station on the floor at the front, while Mom and Dad sat on the white studio boxes and Shiloh and Cairo filled in and around.  A white seamless is sometimes seen as a boring backdrop, but I love it and feel it can really lead to some strong, powerful images if the composition and posing is right, as demonstrated.

 

Keeping up the energy in a family portrait shoot

Moving onto smaller groups, Keisha and Jon made use of their dedicated shoot time and producing some stylish portraits with character and poise.  The three boys then had a medley of setups and an assortment with their individual parents.

Everyone enjoyed this shoot.  Keisha and Jon’s natural comfortability with each other to the fore.  The boys laughed and joked as they took their positions.  I was conscious about keeping the boys engaged and energised.  I had them pose themselves for a few shots which was really entertaining!  We even had a funny face-pulling competition in the middle of a wardrobe change!  Time therefore flew.

Using various studio props/furniture contributed to the array of images.  The final composite was dramatic in that it captured the inherited features of each child from their parents and will last as a great keepsake.  In my opinion,  every family should have one!
