Family Photoshoot in Haywards Heath, West Sussex

Joshua & Harrison were back for their second portrait session with Candy Floss & Bow Ties and I was beyond excited to work with them again. They had their first session at home 18 months ago and this time Mum Donna was looking for a studio setup, hence having their family photoshoot in Haywards Heath. My good friend Sam at Sussex Zest leases her studio to me when it is not in use, and it makes an excellent photography space, just a short drive from Crawley.

I couldn’t believe how much the boys had grown and changed, and was initially a little concerned when Harry started crying – he hadn’t even made it through the door and was feeling overwhelmed, bless him! I have a few tricks up my sleeves for nervous little ‘uns and on this occasion the plastic coloured balls worked a treat! Not only did they take the boys’ minds off of being photographed and completely warmed them up, but the playful surroundings gave way to some really fun pictures.

Donna commented at her viewing session that Harry LOVES balls, so those pictures were a great snapshot of him at his current stage of young life – Just what we’re after!

Ash acted as studio assistant and did a great job of spotting, always recommended when there’s little people and studio lights, wires and heavy equipment around – safety is always our first priority. Nick was also on hand and did a brilliant job of helping to whip the boys up and managing off-camera lighting changes.

We did a mixture of high key & low key work with the white & grey backgrounds as I always like to provide a nice selection. I remembered the boys’ having these gorgeous leather armchairs when I visited them at home last year so had asked Donna & Chris to bring them along, I thought they’d work perfectly with our vintage set-up and they did! See for yourself below…
