OUTDOOR SUNNY SOCIALLY DISTANCED FAMILY SHOOT AT BOX HILL
This outdoor baby photography shoot was meant to be a surprise newborn session that John had booked for his wife. However, 2020 had other plans in store for this surprise shoot. As lockdown intensified it was clear that John’s thoughtful newborn baby photography would turn into something a little different. As the guidelines eased I met John and Sarah with little Margot for a socially distanced family shoot at Box Hill.
Outdoor Baby Photography at a Socially Distanced Space
A socially distanced family shoot is luckily not too different from a usual session with me. As a practise within family photography I let you as a unit interact naturally with one another. There is no pushing or poking. No forced smiles or enforced posing. I take a step back, and allow families to have a cuddle and a giggle with some guided portraiture instructions. This creates a natural atmosphere not only in the photographs, but also for the family taking part.
Having an outdoor baby photography shoot is a very natural thing to do. Although newborn photography is slightly easier at home, take for example Frederikke and her mother and baby shoot. However, a shoot with a slightly older baby is lovely to do in the open. They are less dependant on nap time and like looking around at the surroundings! The sessions are still baby led with no enforced posing but light direction. Following social distance guidelines is easy do to with outdoor family photography. Babies benefit from not too close contact with strangers and smiling from two meters is the same however you do it. As you will be able to see from the photography little Margot was such a smily baby!
