Appley Park – Isle of Wight family photographer
“We had a family photo shoot in Appley Park with Amanda this weekend and what a fantastic experience that was! Amanda did an amazing job with one busy child directing them in a clear and fun way, she didn’t rush anyone and was highly professional. The preview shots we saw looked super and we know we will have some memories to treasure. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking for a photographer, you won’t be disappointed! ” Family portrait session, Appley Park
It’s late afternoon and Jamie and Dollie are arriving for their session after spending the day at the playing on Appley beach. Naturally everyone is a little excited and feeling nervous. The first step is to make Dollie feel comfortable, and to start the process a simple walk through the park, helps them settle into their surroundings.
Moving to the tree-lined golf course in Appley Park, dad sees how beautiful the park is (even on a blustery August day). The quiet beaches complete with friendly tourists, cheerful ice-cream sellers and colourful beach huts give harmony to the pictures and emphasizes the playful character of Dollie with her dad.
Sitting down on the picnic blanket follows next and this is a relaxing, enjoyable part of the session. Building in rest periods by the park benches in Appley Park allows Dollie to settle into the shoot and gain the confidence to explore her surroundings. This is an opportunity to get all those candid moments, as any worries and tensions have disappeared. The positioning is simple and natural so everyone can relax – this is when dads (and mums) realise that it’s not going to be hard work!
Then it’s off home in time for tea. Jamie and Dollie really enjoyed the shoot as spending time together visiting a new park is fresh and exciting, even when you don’t quite know what to expect next. It’s not everyday you have your photos taken against the back drop of Ryde beach!
