For this fun family photoshoot we headed to the woods at knightshayes Court, near Tiverton. The Barker family really,really love the original Mini, so much so that they have three of them. Looking for some family photographs that stand out, include some of there interests and fit all six of them in was my first challenge.
We all had a chat and decided that we would plan a picnic, which is another thing they love to do. For a styled family photo shoot, it is great to have theme or a story to plan the shoot around, because everyone has a role to play and I find that it helps people relax in front of the camera. I think that is because we all mess about and start to role play, so they all forget that I am actually photographing them. This was the Great British Picnic theme. The date was set, I brought along a few props and here are the results of a couple of hours on an alternative family photoshoot.[fblike]
