I LOVE B&W KIDS PORTRAITS!!

Every year since 1993 I photograph the same family for Christmas. Right from the wedding and the first anniversary and as each of the three boys was born I have been there for the yearly portrait.. Every year we find a new location and design a new portrait that means something to the family. This year the boys are 10, 11 and 12. The youngest has learned to weld, so it was time to do some portraits in their dad's workshop.  Chrissie (mum) bought overalls for the boys and some dark t-shirts and we worked around the machinery and benches in the shop, always looking for the perfect light. (The boys and I decided we liked the more serious portraits, but we did some smiling ones for mum, too).

All these were shot within a hour and is an example of what can be done when people prepare for a shoot and are willing to go to that little bit of extra trouble to make the session a success. This family is well practised now and the boys usually come up with some of the ideas themselves. I have not shown them these yet. I hope they like them.

AMAZING!! as always! I love the fact that you make the portraits so personal and intimate. I know the family will LOVE these! It would be fun to see some of the past portraits of this family from the earlier years.
