It's always great to get a family who are ready to be creative, have fun and really enjoy a photoshoot and so it was when Solomon, his wife and daughter joined me a few weeks back for a happy hour with me a few weeks ago.
I love this image - no distractions but captures the love and sense of fun that only a mother and daughter can have.
Young Ellie settled quickly into the role of international supermodel - maybe a portent for the future?
Sometimes the best images come through play and not through posing. Ellie seemed particularly susceptible to the 'tickle treatment'!
And having been the victim of a little rib-tickling Ellie seemed keen that she should turn the tables on her own Dad!
In fact she found it so funny, that for a few moments she could only roll around on the floor in fits of giggles!
In a quiet moment (and thanks to Ellies phenomenal energy levels, there weren't many!) I took the chance to make a few images of Mum & Dad...
...Before returning to focus on the undoubted star of the show, who by now was loving the camera!
A final shot of Ellie on her own, where I tried to create a sense of her smallness and vulnerbility with this shot.
Sometimes it's not just about the single images themselves. Here I've combined two complimentary shots to create this one canvas that I think really showcases Ellie and her Dad perfectly.
A huge thank you to all three of you for the fun, energy and spirit you brought into my studio last month. It really is a pleasure to create great images of such great people!
