Teenage Spring Portrait Shoot | Kensington Gardens

TEENAGE SPRING PORTRAIT SHOOT

Spring is a spectacular time for taking photographs and to my joy I have found myself a few times recently in Kensington Gardens doing Teenage Spring Portrait Shoots.

Katie came to help me out last year in the office before heading off to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, I was thrilled when she returned from her wonderful and intrepid adventures and was up for doing a Teenage Spring Portrait Shoot with me. For the shoot Katie wore some of her own clothes, I was also very kindly lent some beautiful, soft and exquisite cashmere items by N Peal Cashmere. I also love textiles and over the years I have collected an array of textiles jackets and scarves which I also wanted to use for the shoot as I thought they would complement the spring bloom perfectly. At first Katie was slightly hesitant about having her portrait taken but she soon relaxed and felt at ease in front of the camera and we captured some beautiful portraits together.

There is something truly magical and uplifting about spring as it burst into colourful blossom and lifts us up and out of winter into longer evenings and the promise of sun and heat. One of the first signs of spring are the daffodils which look like an enthusiastic Impressionist painter has been out with their paint brush dabbing dots of bright yellow all over the place. The cherry trees also come into life in spring with a blush of pretty pink blossom but my favourite trees at this time of year is the Magnolia.

Firstly, the photographer have the set up for teh shot right. It might be that they need to move some furniture, set up a backdrop, reposition items which might be in the way, etc. 

Next the phographer must get the client to relax. Only when they are feeling confident and comfortable in their skin will it be possible to get a great executive headshot.
