Thetford Photography: Forest Family Portrait Session at High Lodge

The Forestry Commissions High Lodge site in Thetford Forest makes an ideal starting point for a natural family portrait session. If you’re from Norfolk or just visiting then High Lodge provides you with acres of forest to explore, great facilities on-site and depending on what you have planned plenty to do in addition to your portrait session.

I have photographed quite a few families at High Lodge and personally I’m itching to get back at some point when my own daughter is old enough to spend a family day out biking around the forest. There are lots of pine plantations, play areas to explore, nature to be seen and fun to be had.

On a recent session I met a young family and we took a stroll through the woods and out onto an open area of field. On the way we found a sunlit glade, part of a music trail with bells which made for great fun for one little man, some lovely woodland paths and a play area. It was great fun a natural way to be photographed together as a family and a nice natural environment in which to spend some time.

People are often worried that children will not have enough to occupy themselves during a portrait session. Then when we head out into a new environment or even one they know children for a walk the children then show the spirit of adventure and find new things to have fun with: fallen logs as balance beams being a particular favourite. As parents we then also can be found revisiting a bit of our own childhood. On this session Dad used a piece of grass tightly gripped between his two cupped hands to produce a reedy owl like noise. It amused his son no end and no doubt rekindled more than a few memories for dad.

Great fun, I hope you like a few of the photographs from a lovely session of thetford photography with a great family.
