I met up with Rachel & her family a couple of weekends ago. I was introduced to Olivia the bearded dragon; the boys excitedly told me all about her and insisted she ought to have some solo portraits - a first for me - she was very well behaved! I had lots of fun collaborating with the boys on ideas for the shoot, they came up with some brilliant locations as well as some fantastic poses.
I really welcome and encourage collaborative ideas when I'm asked to photograph people - especially from the kids as they enjoy getting involved and feel a sense of achievement at the end of the shoot. I even handed my camera over to the boys - which they LOVED! Below are some of my favourite shots!
