Pettigew Family

For these family portraits I brought all my studio lighting to their house. I set-up a white backdrop and 2 studios lights either side.....  It took me about 40mins to set-up and and I probably spent about an hour taking over 100 photos of the 3 kids in different poses. These kids were such fun to photograph. I used various methods to get their personalities to shine threw. Such as asking them to make faces like their parents; silly faces; serious faces.... and finally I allowed them to take control and gave them a remote to direct their own shots. It really worked to get them relaxed and happy. I think also being in their own home made them more at ease.
