Children’s Under 5’s Studio and Environmental Portraits

Children’s Studio Portraiture

Paul Cudmore Photography offers children’s studio photography in Colchester at its best. Fully qualified with the BIPP we specialise in child portraiture. With 25 years experience taking studio portraits of families and children including hundreds of thousands of school photos.  We are now looking for the special type of portrait that shows the child’s character without all the props and distractions from the portrait.

“Smile at the Camera”

These are the most heard words from behind a child portrait photographer, we really try to avoid this as best as possible as we normally get a cheesy posed smile/grimace. The best practice is to make the child feel safe in the environment first, build up communication and then make them laugh in a variety of fun ways depending on age group. Parents have even asked me if I could be at their children’s parties as the entertainer. To request a booking click  here. For photography not children’s parties 🙂

Bespoke Portraiture

With subtle lighting and backgrounds we can create a unique look that truly captures the personality and cheeky character of your child or children. Dark greys are popular and contemporary at the moment. We do advise to keep the clothing as plain and classic as possible so all your attention is on the child’s expression. Keeping the posing simple creates a classic look that will stand the test of time with a beautiful wall portrait.

Portraits at the beach then an ice cream ?

Environmental children’s portraiture is so much fun and rewarding for the child and photographic session alike. You can choose the beach or woods or local park at a time when it’s not too busy. We also shoot in your garden too. Including other family members is a great way to spend the afternoon or morning before lunch.
