Several months ago a close friend of Nikki contacted us as she wanted to buy her a portrait voucher as a gift for a special birthday. We were happy to hear from Matthew, Nikki's husband, when he called to say that he, Nikki and their children, Zach and Poppy were ready to come to the studio for their family portrait session.
Zach wasn't in the best of moods when the family arrived, clinging to his dad for dear life and "crying". Aren't kids brilliant at making parents squirm at the worst possible time? Matthew was worried and he said that Zach was never like that but mum Nikki's advice worked a treat - ignore him and he'll come round!
A bit of fun, banter and a high five or two later and we managed to get Zach on side and the reward was several great photographs of the family together before we let mum and dad have a bit of a rest on the sofa and allowed Zach and Poppy to play, dance and do their own thing as this seemed to work better than trying to get these two, who were full of beans, to sit still together.
Sometimes cracking photographs just happen and the shot of Poppy on her toes, kissing her big brother, is our favourite.
If you'd like to book a studio session for your family, kids or even the dog, a session costs just £35. Alternatively, a portrait gift certificate can be personalised to your exact requirements for any amount you wish from £35 upwards. Call Janet on 01977 730159 now.
