At the weekend I had the pleasure of doing a family portrait shoot with a couple and their son. Admittedly, it was the first time I'd done a portrait shoot so I was nervous and had a vague idea of what I wanted and what they wanted, but no set plan.
Fortunately, the weather was perfect - a blue skies, frosty and warm sunshine on a wonderfully autumnal (even though its winter) scene.
I chose to just chat and walk round the naval college and park in Greenwich - I prefer a more natural approach, and though there were some posed photos when the opportunity arose, I think the candid approach worked better and gave the best results.
Certainly the approach I will follow from here on in!
