A Family Photo Shoot with a Magical Twist…

When Holly and her family came all the way from Crewe to our studio in Stone, Stoke-on-Trent for their family photo shoot we knew instantly it was going to be great fun! Not only because they brought along Archie (the cutest dachshund/chihuahua cross in the world) but they also brought along with them some of their favourite things.

We love it when our families bring in personal items, it makes for really creative and quirky photography and helps to capture even more personality in the images as well as telling a story about what the children and families are really passionate about.
In this case with Holly and Alfie being Harry Potter enthusiasts they only had one thing in mind… WANDS! Dan was completely in his element in this photo shoot also being a huge Harry Potter fan! There was plenty of wand swishing and flicking going on in the studio that afternoon!!

A lot of people tend to get a little flustered when thinking about what to wear to a photo shoot, the best bit of advice we can give is to keep it casual, comfortable and most importantly wear the clothes you love… clothes that reflect you.
This is something that Holly’s partner Andrew – AKA Mr Grumpy (named by his family, not us!) really took on board! He wore what they thought was THE perfect character reflecting T-Shirt! Holly and the kids had lots of fun playing around with Mr Grumpy, and we even managed to get some fantastic shots of him having a great time too! (We can confirm, he’s not really that grumpy after all!)

Everyone had great fun the photo shoot and like many families, forgot the camera was even there at times. Even their little rock star Ethan who at 2 months old loved being in the spot light playing with his family!
Holly and family had put some real thought into what to bring and wear to their photo shoot, and as a result their images were bursting with personality, love and laughter. We managed to capture all of their individual characters as well as portraying the closeness and special moments between them as a family.

Here’s a preview of some of our favourites…
