Photography by Fiona Winter wonderland mini sessions styling guide

It’s just 2 weeks until we transform our studio into a magical winter wonderland and we are so excited.

We have put together this styling guide to help you decide what to dress your little one’s in to compliment our set up.

For the girls

We will have a range of boutique dresses in a variety of sizes for your little princess to choose from however if you wish to bring your own we have put together some of our favourites that would look amazing in our winter wonderland set.

For the boys

We recommend keeping any clothing plain/neutral, avoiding patterns and logos. A simple pair of chinos with a shirt or knitted jumper would look great. If you want to create different looks then mix it up with accessories including hats, bow tie, braces.

Shoes/footwear

Children will be asked to remove shoes and socks before going into our set up so there is no need to worry about finding matching shoes for their outfit.

TIPS FOR PHOTOGRAPHING YOUR OWN CHILDREN FOR THOSE BACK TO SCHOOL PHOTOS

Photographing your children 

 

TIPS FOR PHOTOGRAPHING YOUR OWN CHILDREN-BACK TO SCHOOL PHOTOS

Now the summer holidays are almost over, I wanted to share a few tips on capturing your own children as they head back to school. I hope these are useful for you, please comment underneath if they are.

 

DOWNLOAD THE PHOTOSHOP APP

My first tip has to be downloading the photoshop app if you haven’t got it already. This app is a scaled down version of the software the professions use to edit photographs. I use this app a lot of the time with my iPhone photos since it’s got the most needed features and it’s extremely easy to use. You can adjust the image contrast, exposure, brightness, add effects, borders and more and its free.

 

USE NATURAL LIGHT

Look for indirect natural light—the shade of a tree or an awning, or diffused by your window. When light shines beside your child, you will notice interesting soft shadows adding dimensionality to your composition. Facing your child straight on, light from the front creates a very soft, shadow-less portrait. Behind your child, backlight enhances colors and creates a bright backdrop.

 

SAME POSE, SAME LOCATION

Back to school time is a great opportunity to document your child’s growth. Consider creating the same photo year after year so you can compare the photos as your child grows.

 

BE IN THE FUN

As mum’s, we often find ourselves behind the camera rather than in front of it and these special moments are the perfect time to be a part of the action, even if only for one photo. It doesn’t matter if it’s a quick selfie, a photo of you doing their hair or outside the school gates.

 

DETAILS

You may not have much time for taking photos on the first day so it maybe a good idea to take photos of the details a few days or night before. Shoot a close-up of their perfectly laid out school uniform, their new backpack, lunchbox and those newly brought school shoes. Remember if it’s important to you or them then photograph it!

 

I really hope you enjoyed this blog post, likes comments and shares are much appreciated.

Things to do this summer

Things to do this summer , the summer holiday’s are here!!!

How are you planning on filling the 6 weeks?  According to the Post Office’s annual money report, UK parents are set to spend an extra £468 per family this summer and this almost doubles for London parents who’re estimated to spend an extra £870 on family activities.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES: Things to do this summer

1. Have a picnic

If the sun is not shining and its too wet to play why not have an indoor picnic my children just love to throw their blankets and pillows down and have lunch on the floor with all their teddies.

2. Home Cinema

Shut those curtains and cosy up. Why not make some yummy popcorn and grab their favourite treats, you can even let smaller children design some tickets and let them show you to a seat. This is a great activity for pregnant mummies who are too hot and tired for running around in the sun or for rainy days!

3. Get out and about…

Also on in Bristol this summer is a wide range of family friendly things to do.

Upfest 2017, Europe’s largest, free, street art & graffiti festival, will take place from 29 to 31 July when over 300 artists will paint at 35 venues throughout Bedminster & Southville.

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is Europe’s largest annual meeting of hot air balloons, attracting over 150 Hot Air Balloons from across the globe. The Fiesta truly is a sight that can only be seen in Bristol. Takes Place this year from the 10th August.

Colston Hall Hoo Ha. For the third year, Colston Hall comes alive for three days filled with music, mirth and rip-roaring fun for all the family. With interactive shows, awesome activities and tons of surprises in store around each corner. From the 15-17th August.

Bristol Doors Open Day: From dusk to dawn, from towers to tunnels, explore the city as never before with Bristol Doors Open Day from 7th September to 10th September.

Fancy a game? Check out Tennis for Free’s website to find out where there’s free ongoing coaching sessions in your area.

4. Have a family photo-shoot with a difference

Are you looking for something different than the typical high street studio portrait for your family? Why not invite us on your summer day out, picnics in the park, Longleaf and LEGOLAND, you wont need to lug around your camera to capture the FUN just invite us along too to record all the memories for you. After all I know how much you have to carry around on days out with little ones.
