Jane’s portrait session Godalming
Like many busy Mums, head teacher Jane is the photographer in her family – she loves photos and takes lots of her two kids, but as a result is never in the photos herself, which is a shame!
So I was very glad when she decided to remedy that, and called me to arrange a personal photo shoot just for herself. The great thing about this kind of session is that it can be done anywhere, indoors or out, and it’s usually quite uncomplicated and relaxed – at least that’s what I aim for!
My plan was to do the shoot at Jane’s home and then if we needed some extra time to go to the park – but as it turned out we found lots of places to shoot in Jane’s house and garden, so didn’t need to use the extra location. The whole session took about an hour.
We started with a few simple “head and shoulders” photos indoors. Most people feel a bit nervous if they aren’t used to being photographed professionally, that’s totally normal – but a big part of my job is to keep chatting away as I shoot and make my clients feel relaxed and confident that they are looking good. I don’t bring a lot of studio equipment with me to a shoot like this, just one flash and an umbrella to help balance with whatever natural light I find.
I was very happy with the results and I hope Jane will be too! Below is a selection of my favourite images from her photo session so you can judge for yourselves.
