One of the loveliest aspects of being a photographer is being asked to repeatedly capture people’s lives as they develop. I first met the couple who became the mum and dad of this family group when I helped a friend photograph their wedding a number of years ago. It was a lovely wedding in North Norfolk and it was great to get to know the bride and groom who later became the parents of two very lively little twins. It was great to be asked to photograph their family group this year as they returned to their beloved Norfolk for a holiday away from city life and for a bit of time with their daughters. It’s often I’m called upon to produce Norfolk Holiday Photography sessions, so this one for a family the parent’s of whom I knew, was particularly fun.
Family sessions are always great fun and this one was no less so. As a father of two girls myself I got another valuable insight into parenting twins and how mum and dad teamwork has to be even tighter knit when dealing with two strong willed twins. For all the running around/chasing we did though it was absolutely worth it, the girls dictated the session and didn’t tire easily, mum and dad and myself kept up, employed all the ploys in the book that we could and hopefully came out with some lovely photographs to mark a significant moment in the life of this family. How do you get smiles from children….you let them enjoy themselves, explore and adventure, which the girls did in buckets 🙂
