Sometimes the weather can play hard ball with the plans of a portrait photographer. On this occasion it was rather a gusty wind which threatened to slam unclosed doors and generally mess up hair of anyone attempting to go outdoors on what was an Easter Saturday. Combine the gusty wind with quite a cool and very grey day and it was decided that staying indoors in a spacious family home would be the best bet for some family photographs.
Staying indoors was not a bad idea. My clients wanted some photographs of their family in the house that had served as a family home through the childhood of several children who’d now left Norfolk to live and work in the capital. With Easter weekend being an ideal opportunity to get family together, parent’s, children and a daughter-in-law were all photographed together and individually with a little onus on the parent’s work too.
Using the natural light that enters the house even on a dull day we photographed the family in and around the house, not even leaving out the kitchen. I then whipped the family out for a rather blustery outdoor photo or two before returning indoors for some shots of the artist at work before heading to a very private shed for a couple more photographs.
It was great fun and hopefully an example of how even when the weather’s against us there are memories to be captured, I hope you like some of the photographs and if you’re in need of a portrait photographer please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
