2 Day Assignment for the Friend Family!!

“We always love a shoot when they provide accommodation as it always feels like a mini break!”

Model Fee: £1,333

We were excited and a little nervous about this shoot. We knew it was a 2 day family shoot with all the family including our eldest daughter Olivia. We had packed up the car early in the morning as we need to be there for 9am as it was only just over an hour away this was one of our closets shoots. The friend family always likes to take more clothes than not enough and our car looked like we were going away for 2 weeks not 2 nights. We always love a shoot when they provide accommodation as it always feels like a mini break. Shaun and I were a little apprehensive about the shoot being two long days 9-5 and having 3 children to try and keep happy and smiling is always on our minds. These shoots are never easy but we are so lucky are children seem to taken to easily. We arrived at the lodge which was the location for day one it was set in the most beautiful country side, we were working with a photograph Nick his assistant Cody and Tanya Reed head of corporate communications for Pennon Group. Tanya and Nick knew exactly what they were after which is always great when we have a firm direction. Trying to get that perfect shot will always take time but once again the children did amazing, even getting complimented from Nick and Tanya. The day went by very quickly with children getting time out for snacks, lunch and a little bit of fun on the Ipads. Second day was a completely different day we were all super excited as we were going to a reservoir to do cannoning and boating something we hadn’t done before, that’s why this job is always so good your learning and trying new things all the time. We had a quick briefing and safety talk and it was go go go. I just kept hearing the girls laughing and having a blast it always brings us so much joy to see the children having fun and trying new experiences and we get paid for it !! Nick said he got some amazing pictures and it was a wrap. This was a fantastic shoot with lots of amazing memories.” – The Friend Family
