I had a great time this morning photographing to great boys, Alex & Sam. I have previously photographed Sam before when he was only about 12 months old, but with Alex coming up 12 months old I was asked if I would mind taking some photographs of the two of them individually and together. I know Alex & Sam as I photographed their parent’s wedding Katy & Simon a few years ago at the Devonshire Arms near Bolton Abbey and have stayed in touch with them ever since. In fact Simon is a keen Mini enthusiast and Mini owner, as am I, so we have quite a bit in common and they have become very good friends. It was therefore a pleasure to photograph their two sons at this age as they both have their own personalities which become evident in the photographs taken.
Photographing children is not particularly easy as they can be a little unpredictable, so trying to capture them enjoying something they like to do, and spending time with them so they forget you are there taking photographs, is a way to try to capture their personality. Capturing details about them and what they do is lovely as they soon grow out of sucking their thumb and things that are indicative of them as children. The photographs are therefore lovely reminders for years to come.
They are lovely children and to spend a morning with them was great. A selection of photographs taken are below for you to enjoy.
