Significant birthdays give family’s a great opportunity to get together for a celebration and often finding a holiday home for a bit of a relaxing break enjoying each other’s company is the perfect solution.

Hill House in Newton Flotman just south of Norwich provides a great place to stay for a larger family intent on a relaxing holiday with lots to see and do within easy reach. Hill house itself is an impressive edifice that sleeps 17 people, has it’s own tennis courts and a games room and a great large garden. Add to this that it’s also dog friendly and you can see why the family I met there for a relaxed portrait session choose it as the location for their stay.

Dad’s birthday was the reason for the session, and the session and the family stay were enjoyed with sons, daughters and partners and grandchild. We started the session with a few informal photographs around the property before taking a short walk through the surrounding countryside on small footpaths past fields upon fields finding an abandoned church in a small patch of woodland. Returning to Hill House’s garden we took some more photographs of the family enjoying a bit of good weather before returning indoors to take a few photographs using some of the house’s lovely windows and doors as backgrounds for some informal portraits.

On this occasion dad was chuffed to receive his images in time to show them to his own aunt when he visited her after the session. I hope you like a small selection of the photographs from an afternoon at Hill House.

Remember if you need a Norfolk family photographer get in touch to book a session.

Walberswick is another hidden gem of the Suffolk Coast with lots of visitors visiting it’s famous neighbour in Southwold but I imagine not quite enough venturing across the river to this quaint village and great beach. The village itself backs onto the river Blyth that divides it from Southwold and alongside the river are popular mooring spots for boats a small ferry that takes visitors to and fro across the river and then a lovely section of beach backed by beach huts.

I met up with a lovely family earlier this summer many of whom had travelled over from Australia for a family gathering in beautiful Suffolk. We planned to head to Walberswick to take advantage of a gorgeous sunny afternoon on the beach and among some of the lovely scenery of the village’s riverside.

We sat among old open wooden fishing boats, and quaint riverside chalets, walked across the “crabbing” bridges that are popular place to catch crabs in this area, and then across the dune system to the sea. After a little while playing in the surf the family were ready to head back to their accommodation for some well earned rest.

It was a lovely afternoon and great to visit such a lovely location to take some photographs for a great family.

I delivered a USB of photographs to the grandparents of the family at their home in Suffolk and made the photographs from the session available to download from my image storage website. This is a great way to share photographs from a session with family who have travelled overseas to be together.

I hope you like some of the photographs and will consider me when you want a Suffolk Family Photographer.

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.

Family get together’s are always a great chance to get some photographs of everyone together. When you’re marking the occasion of a new addition’s Christening with family travelling from all the corners of the country that’s even more incentive to mark the occasion and remember it in photographs.

On this happy occasion I found myself in North Norfolk, a regular haunt for me, and was tasked with photographing the family party following a morning Christening. There was food a plenty, sparkling drinks, plenty of sunshine to sit outside, a lovely garden to play in and a bit of football in the field behind the house-great fun for everyone and that was before the Christening cake and desserts were wheeled out 🙂

What’s more when I arrived the little chap was having his early afternoon nap, only to wake up full of beans, smiling ear to ear ready for some photographs with his cousins, aunts, uncles, mum, dad and very loving older sister of the furry variety.

Great fun, sunshine and a family event to remember. I hope you like some of the photographs from this lovely party and consider my services for your Christening Photography.

I’m a lucky family portrait photographer, I get to photograph lovely families and often get asked back to photograph them again when children and everyone else for that matter have grown a little older, and when more of the family want to be included.

I’d photographed part of this family before: it was a gift from grandmother to her son and daughter-in-law to mark the birth of their second child. When we photographed the son’s family there was mum and dad, older sister and a little lady who was content to sit with her mum, dad and big sister for photographs. Fast forward a couple of years and grandmother is now bought the gift of a family portrait session for her birthday by her son. The family including granddad and grandmother, aunty, family dogs and the original family of four are rounded up brought to a North Norfolk beach on quite a cool and windy day and we set off to capture a bit more family life.

We head to the woods to avoid a bracing (read: cold) wind and soon find that the wood provides us with a much warmer and calmer area to use for a family portrait session than the planned beach. The girls amaze me, they’ve grown up, have a head for heights and soon dazzle us all with their love of balancing along fallen trees, dad and mum follow suit and everyone joins in for family photographs, fun and relaxation out of the breeze in a magical woodland. It’s great to catch up with the family, give them a great time at the beach and woods together and finally brave a cold beach for a little while before the end of the session.

I hope you like some of the photographs and if you’d like to book a portrait session get in touch, it’s great fun.
