18th birthday portrait

Greta is 18 this week and her mum decided the occasion deserved to be recorded with a family portrait session. Greta was a fantastic model, as was her brother James and although neither of them really wanted to be there to start with as they couldn’t understand why getting family photographs taken in Roundhay Park was a good idea, I think I won them over a little and we got some great shots. I hope they even secretly enjoyed themselves a bit.

Greta and James are obviously both gorgeous-looking. When you meet their parents you see why. As an aside, I watched the second part of Kay Mellor’s ‘A Passionate Woman’ with Billie Piper (who was brilliant I thought), which was set and filmed in Leeds, while I was processing these last night. As I was working on this shot, the exact same scene with the fountain in the background appeared in the drama as the characters were taking a walk round the lake in Roundhay Park. Spooky!

  • Stu Cooperfantastic images susie! I love the first few images that are shot out in the sun – the way you’ve processed them makes them look like they were shot on film – classically retro! Tey must have been so thrilled with these.
