Portrait Photography Northampton – 18th Birthday and a Vintage Dress
It is always thrill when a commercial client contacts me, and asks if I would photograph a member of the family. And even more special if it also happens to be on their 18th birthday.
I was delighted at the prospect and arrived a couple of hours ahead of the invited guests. Who after cocktails and nibbles were heading to a trendy drinking establishment in Northampton to celebrate Clare’s 18th birthday.
The family home hides behind a beautiful Georgian facade, and is also the premises for the family business, which is a leading Northampton podiatrist. So I spent around an hour or so with Clare in their lounge, being warmed by a very nice open fire.
For most of my commercial and editorial work I like to travel as light as possible, so armed with a just a shoot through umbrella, and triggering a single speed-light with my trusty Pocket Wizard Flex TT5, we shot some relaxed portraits of Clare and her family.
Not only is Clare very beautiful, but she is also very intelligent as her ambition is to become a doctor. In one of the photographs you will see a painting of her on the wall playing a guitar when she was younger, so clearly this young lady is multi talented.
As the time together was brief, I only managed to get a few images. But hopefully, I managed to captured some of Clare’s character in the photographs? And check out that gorgeous dress!
Below are some of my favourites:
