Just a day… Zurich and London baby photographer

Jun 16, 2014 | Other work

Imagine looking back on one day 30 years ago… seeing where you lived, what you wore, what you spent your time doing…

For me, photography is storytelling. I want to be able to look back on our family pictures with our daughter and for her to see what our life was like, and what she was like as a child. So that doesn’t mean saying cheese or doing pretty poses…

I sometimes give talks to parents about how to take better pictures of their children. I don’t focus on camera settings and equipment but instead on working with your children, making it fun and how to capture the ‘real’ them….

I recommend keeping a pocket camera in your bag and I never go anywhere without mine, it means that if something special is happening then you can grab it quickly. But I also recommending setting aside a day, whether it be a day out or a regular day at home, and recording the different events – big and small. Capturing the scene, the details, the story…

Here’s a day I did with my daughter a few weeks ago… I shared it at a recent talk I gave and promised to blog it… Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-001Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-002Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-003Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-004Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-005Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-007Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-008Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-009Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-010Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-011Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-012Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-013Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-014Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-040Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-016Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-017Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-018Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-015Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-034Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-035Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-019Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-020Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-021Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-022Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-023Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-024Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-025Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-026Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-027Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-028Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-029Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-030Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-031Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-032Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-033Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-038Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-039Day in the life - Clare Breheny Photography-041
