I love getting to know client’s and there’s nothing nicer than being asked to cover multiple great events for a family, from weddings to the arrival of new members of a family.

This shoot was a bit special, the family had been called in from their respective homes to the house of a new and very rightly proud pair of grandparents. A weekend together, lots of fun with the new baby boy in the family, lots of proud uncles and aunts, and the opportunity to have some photographs taken to record the family’s new addition.

The weather didn’t quite play ball, this happens sometimes and if you can’t get out in the gorgeous garden for too long due to the wet, then sometimes finding a space indoors is a great place to start a shoot and wait for the weather to improve. The sun didn’t exactly blaze but the rain stopped and we managed to step outside for some photographs incorporating lots of colourful flowers. We managed to get quite a few of the youngest member of the family before he needed to retire for a quick snooze. I then moved onto capturing some photographs of his proud Aunts and Uncles before fulfilling a request to capture some photographs of the family’s canine charges.

I don’t always get asked by proud Uncles if they can have a photograph with their new nephew on their own but did on this occasion. Just another indication as to how much of a loving family this little boy is entering.

I hope you enjoy the photographs.

It was a pleasure to revisit a client who’d added a new addition to their household recently in the shape of a bouncing baby boy. Last time I’d visited had been to take some studio style shots of the family with their first daughter and on this occasion again I took some studio style shots for them before moving onto some more natural lifestyle photographs.

The session itself had plenty of breaks for the younger members of the family to feed and have a bit of a cuddle with mum before taking some more photographs. Home sessions are definitely better with very young children and babies as the home gives parents every comfort and comforter close to hand and is a familiar environment for young eyes.

We had great fun and it was heartwarming to see the new relationship that this little lad has with his elder sister who seemed just a little bit happy to have a younger brother to play with.

A little bit of teething trauma took place toward the end of my time with the family but by being patient and close to hand we still managed to catch some nice expressions between the short grisly episodes associated with teething.

I hope you like some of the photographs taken and if you’d like your own session at home or on location then please get in touch.

A significant birthday is always a good excuse to get family together for a nice meal and some time socialising together and on this occasion there was the addition of the chance to take a few photographs of the family together. On this occasion the family were to meet up at the home of the wonderful lady whose birthday it was before heading off to a local restaurant for a private sitting for their meal.

With a mixture of unposed reportage photography and posed photographs of family members and the whole family together I managed to record a family event for posterity. I’m glad to be revisiting the family later this year again to capture a little of the present for the future, everything changes so the moments that you take aside for a future date can’t be valued and shouldn’t be neglected.

If you have a family member, friend or yourself have a significant birthday coming up drop me a line to fulfil your birthday party photography.

In addition to my lifestyle portraits of families, children and babies I also photograph events like family get togethers, anniversary parties and family birthday parties. This year I’ve had the pleasure of photographing several 90th birthday parties of some truly lovely and deserving people who have reached this milestone and have wonderful families to enjoy it with.

One such party took place in Aylsham at a wonderful Bed & Breakfast there called The Pump House. The whole back garden of the house had been prepared for a lovely afternoon of celebrations that were to include some great dancing led by the birthday boy himself, a wonderful afternoon tea complete with cucumber sandwiches and cup cakes of many types, a lovely timeline of all the years of the gentleman’s life and of course a wonderful cake shaped as a VW camper van in homage to the gentleman’s love of camper vans. Sadly despite enjoying the few hours I spent photographing the party I had to leave before what I can only imagine was the main event. Food preparation of epic proportions during the rest of the party were I felt about to be eclipsed by the contents of not one but three BBQ’s cooking up dinner for the party that evening. It would seem that the owners of The Pump House don’t skimp on producing brilliant food and I do believe that my mouth is still watering having only glimpsed the beautiful food that those BBQ’s were going to produce.

I hope you like a few photographs from what was a wonderful afternoon, enjoyed by so many family members and no doubt particularly memorable for everyone involved.
