Imagine going for a walk on your local beach and your daughter’s tiny hand holding yours. She collects seashells and twigs and her nose is slightly red from the wind. No, wait, imagine your son peeking from under the curtain and screaming “I’m here” when you pretend not to find him. Or imagine your husband engrossed in a Lego fire station with your eldest, glad he wasn’t asked to wear a tie and smile at the camera.
Before the session, I was worried about the camera intruding on moments or us feeling pressure to perform for the camera. Instead we forgot you were there as a photographer and we had a lovely family afternoon and you slotted in so well it was as if you had always been part of the family. There was no pressure to perform, behave or pose.
We loved the idea of a photographer coming to our home and capturing the experience of life with a newborn. I was worried that it would be stressful to have a photographer in the house with such a new baby but Johanna was totally unobtrusive, and so good at developing a rapport with us and with the children, that it wasn’t stressful at all.
The photographs you created are beyond what I could have hoped for. You have managed to capture those small looks and glances of love between my children and their grandparents. I’m sure that these images will only increase in meaning for us as the years pass.
What I loved most about our photo session, was that it wasn’t staged or forced. Johanna captured everyday life with me and my little baby. My daughter was so relaxed with her and she made me feel relaxed too. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I’m already looking forward to our next session.
I usually hate having photos taken but I felt entirely at ease with Johanna. She was brilliant with my son, & has managed to capture a really precious time in our lives.
