May 2013 Highlights – Tobias Shoot
I often get asked to photograph the resulting offspring of couples whose weddings I have photographed. It is one of the joys of my job, developing a long term relationship with couples, documenting how their lives together change and their family evolves. This month I got to photograph Tobias – son of Sarah and Simon whose wedding I photographed back in 2010. I have recently had a run of new born baby shoots where the baby has simply refused to go to sleep (aaargh!) but Tobias was a dream model and I managed to capture some lovely shots of him in their beautiful house (Sarah – I take my hat off to your flair in interior design – I love the individual quirky touches).
Below are some of my favourite shots from the morning. Along with the usual detail shots of hands, feet etc I took a lot more wider shots than usual to make to most of the stunning interior – the clocks on the wall were set to the time that Tobias was born around the world. I love it when the location can add an unexpected personal dimension to a family shoot.
Note for Photographers: Shot with natural light and a Lupolux 1500 to supplement where necessary. The Lupolux is great for baby shoots on location as it is a continuous daylight balanced light (with a spot to wide fresnel lens). You can add a little pop of light with no distracting flash for little eyes and it is easy to see where the shadows fall.
