When family members live both in various corners of the country and also the world it’s a big deal getting everyone together. A family portrait session last year united family members from both the North East and East Anglia in the UK with those based in Canada. Family reunions, get togethers, holidays are a common reason for a photographer to be called upon to take some photographs. Often I’m asked to attend a large holiday home to photograph everyone but on this occasion the family ventured out to a beautiful bit of parkland for some natural photographs together.
The bonus of heading out and about if you can for a family reunion session, is that often people relax more in front of a camera when they have a chance to move and explore and see new things. In this case one of the family’s brought their Cockapoo along for the walk. Great fun for the younger family members and of course a willing poseur when requiredWe walked through park land, amongst some great deciduous woods, along tracks and trails exploring, photographing. The family had fun, the kids had a bit of adventure and even managed to find a toad, and we all returned to the car park having had a great time and some exercise to boot.
I hope you like a small selection of the photographs from this session. A big thanks to the family concerned who were wonderfully accommodating and great fun to be with.
