At some point I’m sure I’ll grow bored of being a North and South Norfolk Photographer, retire to a hermitage, never to pick up a camera again: but I can’t see it being anytime soon!
My recent family shoot saw me in South Norfolk on a Saturday morning with a lovely family of three generations including 2 grandparents, 4 parents and 3 children. It was a session at a rural home surrounded by fields, driveways lined with trees shedding their leaves and countryside tracks. In short it was a great chance to find some fallen autumn leaves, explore the fields and try to saturate as much of the colours of this wonderful time of year into my photographs as I could.
It was morning, dare I say it, when children are usually more compliant and generally a bit happier compared to their own selves in the afternoon. There was a little bit of excess energy to burn whilst the older generation looked on, but thankfully it meant that the children had plenty of energy to at least return to a photogenic spot for another quick go at achieving the photographs that we were after when first attempts hadn’t quite been a success.
We had great fun, children held hands, fell on the floor, were swung by adults, got to climb fences, got cuddles, looked at sheep, were tickled and generally ran around lots, with the added fun of throwing some autumnal leaves about. I think the parents and grandparents also enjoyed themselves, they also got to cuddle and hold hands but I don’t think they could be trusted with too much more
It was a lovely session, even better to edit the images and see all the smiles.
If you’d like a stress free outdoor family portrait session get in touch, it’s autumn one of the best times of year to do it!
