This session has been in the pipeline for sometime. Some of you may remember that I did a Boudoir session with Amber last year, and it was always the intention to follow up with a portrait shoot, but with our busy schedules it's been a while before it finally came to fruition. Thanks to Amber's contacts, we had the good fortune to use the grounds of Somerleyton Hall for the photo session.

The focus of the session was Amber's beautiful red hair, so plenty of close-ups, and rim lighting from the setting sun (that was the plan anyway!).
Being Britain the sun was fleeting, and instead of the glorious still sunset, we were greeted by a lot of cloud and a strong breeze. It meant tucking ourselves in sheltered areas away from the wind, which wasn't a problem, given the size of the area we were working in. The only issue I had was which of the fabulous backdrops on offer to use for the shots.

I settled on just a few, the lawned area, two of the big, mature trees which dominated the landscape, a flower bed sporting blue and purple flowers and an deep red Acer. The last two provided a wonderful contrast with Amber's red hair.

Rather than leave you with my view on proceedings, I thought it would be interesting to share what my model thought. I asked Amber for a few words about the experience, and she said this…
I felt beautiful during the shoot, and beautiful with the feeback from the finished photos. You are the perfect photographer as I feel at ease because I know your going to enhance the beauty that I would love to see for myself. I felt comfortable the whole time even with leaving you with choosing the photos. The finished products are always 100% perfect.

I would like to say a huge thanks to Lord Somerleyton for permission to use the beautiful grounds at the Hall. It was the first time I had shot here, and would certainly love to use the location again.

If you are interested in having your own portrait shoot with and would like further details, please contact me via the Portrait Contact Page, and I'll get back to you to discuss your requirements.
