1. Child, Family and Baby Photography Workshop, tips and tricks | Somerset West Photographer

    Child, Baby and Family Photography tips , tricks and workshops in Somerset West

     

    I have been running children’s, family and baby photography workshops for almost four years now. They have all been great fun, the students, models and assistants have all been such a pleasure to work with. Each workshop is practical and therefore lends itself to the needs and wants of the group.

    Seeing as the sessions are workshops with practical demonstrations and of course lots of questions each workshop has been a little different to cater and where possible demonstrate solutions to questions.

    In each workshop we have a theoretical presentation that covers everything from working with your client, posing, props, outfits and clothing, locations and various lighting techniques. We take the theory and put that in to practice with actual demonstrations and shoots.

    I encourage the class to participate, pose the model, direct a portion of the shoot and suggest ways to work on lighting the subject and then of course see the results. There is nothing better than the class getting involved, taking initiative, asking questions and seeing how their own ideas work in practice.

    The workshop is for anyone with an interest in child, family and baby photography, for the hobbyist, to the photographer who is taking their work to a professional level. I look forward to each workshop.

    Please take the time to have a look at the various images below that you can learn to master.

    I have decided to write a blog however, every few weeks to give budding new photographers a few tips in various areas to cover a few basics to get one started. Please feel free to follow my site and blogs. Comments and questions are welcome and will help me to know what to cover in the up and coming articles.

    Dariene and Zoe were so excited for their photo shoot. they planned a number of outfits and in true diva style they were naturals in front of the camera. Planning your outfits always helps you get exactly what you want. Zoe looked graceful and lady like in her ballet out fit and Dariene was just so pretty, confident and comfortable in pink. I can’s wait to see the next outfits and see these girls for their next photo shoot.

    I absolutely loved this maternity photo shoot. Susan was simply glowing! Susan was prepared with different outfits and lots of little personal items to add to the uniqueness of her shoot. Susan had taken the time to put everything to together and also had her own creative ideas. Together this made for a fantastic shoot with a variety of styles and poses. I especially loved adding in the scan !

    See below just a few of the images from this maternity shoot…

    My photographic studio is based in Kyalami Midrand. A stones throw away from Waterfall Estate, Sunninghill, Fourways and only 15 min away from centurion. My studio is child friendly and each shoot is built around the needs of the family, ages of the children and the individuals personality.

    Priya and her family visited my Kyalami Studio for a family photo shoot recently. We did a range of both formal family portraits as well as some fun casual shots as well. Mom did a great job of making sure everyone was dressed beautifully and carefully thought out the outfits for both a formal portrait and some casual shots as well. This little baby had the most fun pulling her big sisters hair, and she didn’t want to let go …. !!! Find the image below !

    Kyalami Studio Baby Photo Shoot

    Nini brought her little baby for a photo shoot in my Kyalami photographic studio. He was 6 weeks and just such a little darling. He slept through most of the  photo shoot, and towards the end woke up, and enjoyed cuddles with mom and dad. So relaxed and laid back, this little one is an absolute natural and i can’t wait to see him again ! Notice proud mom and dad !

    “Baby Love”

    In a world that’s all brand-new, babies have so much to do! Laughing, making funny faces, finding out those ticklish places…Cuddling up and wiggling toes, looking cute in tiny clothes…Tasting, touching, reaching high, crawling under, scooting by…Learning words and having fun…Making memories one by one.
