Messy Play

“Three… two… one… smile!” *flash* And another annual school photo has been captured.

But most children can’t produce a beautiful, natural-looking smile on demand – trust me, I’ve taken enough school photographs to know.

In fact, a forced, unnatural smile can even make your child look decidedly different. That’s if they even smile at all (you know what kids can be like when it comes to school photos).

For some parents though, school photos are the only pictures of their kids they have.

But with one of my messy play photo sessions, your kids don’t have to smile on cue or behave for the picture. They are a great way to allow your child to enjoy themselves and capture some really wonderful, natural shots at the same time.

I’ll be there to guide your child (plus their siblings and friends too), but the whole point is that they have fun. This allows us to snap them in the moment, which produces the very best results.

What my clients say

“My daughter is very shy, but Aina managed to get the best out of her and she didn’t want to leave the shoot! The result was above and beyond and we had many copies to hand out at her birthday party.”

Jourdan / Cambridge

“The photo shoot with Aina was a blast! She has the ability to make you feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera.”

Berenice / Cambridge

“Wow Aina! You have been such a pleasure to work with and to get to know! You and your photos are so beyond expectations. I love that you don’t just take pictures, you capture moments. You are so incredibly talented and knowledgeable about  photography and we were so lucky to have you! I’d recommend Aina to anyone! Aina is truly an outstanding photographer (and wonderful person) with an almost mystical ability to capture the true nature of people and events.”

Sima / Cambridge

“Aina is an excellent photographer and such a nice person to be photographed by. She gave me useful tips for posing, showed me secret and beautiful places in Cambridge and was really flexible to also accommodate what I was looking for in terms of pictures. I’m a shoe designer and I wanted her to capture my shoes in the Cambridge look! ”
