Family portrait sessions with me are mostly candid, often conversational, with some posing guidance along the way. You don't ever need to know 'what to do' at any point in your session, I'll guide you throughout our time together.
At the start of our shoot I'll encourage interaction using ice breaker exercises. Once we get into the flow of things, our session should feel less like a photoshoot, and more like hanging out with a friend who happens to have a camera.
I'll scout out the best light and we'll take some pictures of you in your favourite spaces at home before heading outdoors for some fresh air and a change of scenery.
Along the way, you might want to stop to switch clothes, grab a snack or change a nappy! It's all good; there is always breathing room factored into our time together.
At no point should you feel like you're straining to pose or having to 'say cheese'. The most important thing is that you're relaxed enough so that I can capture your precious relationships as they are at this moment.
"I was worried that the shoot would be cheesy and too formal for my husband and I. Instead, it was relaxed and fun. Jodi put us at ease and my our favourite part of the shoot was making our baby laugh for the camera. It's worth spending the money to have family photos that you'll return to again and again"
"Our newborn baby was only 9 days old when she photographed our family amongst our half packed house with a move out of London imminent. She still managed to create a special atmosphere which captured just how in love we are with our little boy and our new family dynamic"
"I just loved how you interacted with us all especially Benji who was two weeks old. You were so calm and helpful in trying to get him to calm down and make sure we got some great shots. We love the final products and can't wait to share the images with our friends and family"
