We caught up with photographer Anne Wills to find out more:
“I enjoy baby photography most when working in the studio, although every session – whether it’s babies, families or pets – is great fun! No two babies are ever the same which makes each shoot interesting and enjoyable. I love photographing the unique expressions and personality of each baby and it’s great to see the enjoyment of the families who also get involved. It’s also fun to see these babies grow year by year, when they often return for more photo shoots.
My job as a portrait photographer is to make the experience stress free and enjoyable for everyone. I’m naturally a fun and bubbly person; even with the hardest of photo shoots I never let that slide. I connect well with the young families that visit the studio and ensure they feel relaxed before we step into the studio.”
Modern and comfortable, the studio is situated in converted barns in the small village of Coggeshall, just off the main road between Colchester and Braintree. The village boasts some lovely antique shops, cafés, and a garden centre close by and with Colchester Zoo not far away, it makes a lovely day out, particularly if whole families are there for a photo experience. There is also parking available.
