As a North Norfolk photographer I get to meet new families, enjoy adventures, have fun, and to produce photographs that record family life and which will hopefully be looked back upon for many years to come. Sometimes we have so much fun that the family get in touch again, and sometimes again. That’s the case with this lovely extended family who I had the pleasure of photographing for the third time earlier this year back in the summer. It’s great, it means we can swap stories, enjoy each others company and have lots of fun, it means I’ve got to know them and them me a working relationship which allows everyone to be really relaxed.
On this occasion we were at a North Norfolk beach, enjoying spotting wildlife, messing around in the dunes, and woods. We spent most of the time on this shoot in the woods, it was very, very windy on the beach and the sand was flying around stinging skin and eyes a little too much. It was another story in the woods, sunny, windless, and just fun to run around in for all. It was great to reacquaint myself with the family there were laughs, great humour and more than a little tom foolery.
I normally allow up to two hours for family portrait sessions, this allows you to get to know me and I you before we even start with the photography. It also allows us to explore and find nice photogenic spots, good light, and enables me not only to capture a few slightly formal request photographs but also lots of natural interaction. It’s something I love throwing my energy into, being out with my cameras photographing great families.
If you’re interested in a family shoot whether for a large group or just for your new family then please get in touch.
