Well it’s that time of year again when Christmas present buying comes to the fore and towns and cities such as Norwich become clogged with traffic trying to reach the nearest carpark!

Family Portrait sessions make the ideal present and I’m glad to be able to offer vouchers that you can slip in with your Christmas cards to treat that special someone or family to a portrait session.

My photography gift vouchers have proven particularly popular year upon year and I love to meet the individuals and families who are gifted them as a present to take them out for an outdoor lifestyle session or produce some great photographs in the comfort of their home.

You can buy the session fee itself or feel free to add additional credit toward products it’s your choice, so get in touch, and give a great present this Christmas!

O.k. so I’m not the best at writing witty blog post titles, but really the family did fly in for this portrait session and it took place at the The Gunton Arms which technically having rooms, a restaurant and bar must count as an Inn?

It was a certain lady’s birthday and her husband had planned the celebrations many months in advance, a big party, arriving by helicopter, and a bit of time in the morning for a ride out in the helicopter to The Gunton Arms near Cromer, with a bit of time set aside for some family photographs. Saxon Air supplied the Eurocopter that flew across Norfolk’s skies to arrive at The Gunton Arms with the family aboard. The Gunton Arms is quite a unique establishment set in wonderful Norfolk parkland, with some esoteric art, a fine restaurant and great pub atmosphere, if you’re passing it’s well worth popping in to have a look.

Greeted with some bubbly and slightly conscious of what a grand entrance they had made to the park that morning the birthday girl, family and I headed outdoors to let a little man run off some of his excitement and for some general messing about. We then retired indoors as the morning’s weather was still a little unpredictable and you can’t got to The Gunton Arms without taking a little of it’s wonderful interior on board. A quick change and the family were ready to have a few more portraits before heading off once more into the skies in their lovely helicopter for the day to their next destination and a big party.

I hope you like some of the photographs from this shoot, it was definitely a little different to the norm, but great fun and as always it was a privilege to meet some more lovely clients. It’s why I enjoy being a lifestyle photographer.

A crisp October day, the lovely location of Stoke Mill, family and friends in abundance and the promise of some superb food, it was no wonder that the lovely lady celebrating her birthday had a constant smile on her face.

I love photographing birthday celebrations, they’re such good fun, get all the family together and friends too and make for great candid photographs of guests, recording both them and the occasion for posterity and present. Stoke Mill made for a brilliant location for this party. Situated in Stoke Holy Cross just a short distance South of Norwich the old mill provided the party with a bit of privacy, an interesting and beautiful setting and a contemporary dining experience in a fantastic looking restaurant.

Family and friends arrived and chatted over drinks, or for the children played with games in a large room off the main restaurant area whilst others watched the race of water that once powered the mill from the warmth and comfort of the restaurant area. A lovely tennis themed birthday cake sat in the corner of the restaurant and picture books of the lady of the day circulated the room for a little amusement. The food was finally served and that was reason for me to leave the family and friends to an afternoon of fine contemporary dining, the food looked great so I’m sure it was great to enjoy.

I hope you like a few of the photographs from the event, it’s always a joy to be able to do what we photographers call candid or reportage photography in the main and I hope you agree that you see some lovely results. If you have a party planned why not get in touch.

I first photographed this family when the young lady in these photographs was but a few months old. Back then her brother did a great job of looking after her particularly when it came to me photographing them together without their parents. Now his sister is much older, loves pushing her push chair at about ninety miles per hour and is certainly more able to assert herself. As an older brother it’s fair to say that he’s now got more of a job on his hands, but he takes it all in his stride 😉

It’s great having the privilege to photograph families repeatedly, seeing them grow, chatting about different experiences of being a parent, enjoying being re-educated as to the joys of childhood. There’s nothing that gives me more pleasure than supplying photographs to families knowing that they’ll be held dear, be used as a record, be used to look at the next generation to compare eyes, chins, hair colour etc between parents and children’s childhood photographs, be used as reminders of childhood personalities, and for parents and children alike to measure the changing seasons of their own lives.

Autumn although it gives way to Winter is a great time for photographs, it’s all about the colours, about the chance to wear some bright warm woolly clothes again and to have some fun without fear of getting too hot, and well there’s sometimes even puddles, every adult should try and remember the appeal of puddles 😉

I hope you like the photographs, great family, great location, great fun, I love being a Norfolk Portrait Photographer

I often get asked to provide photography gift vouchers for birthday presents, and on other occasions I’m often to be found meeting up with a family for some photographs of them all celebrating a significant birthday.

On this occasion the latter statement was true. A meal was planned at a great local pub in Norwich and prior to this the family were getting together for some photographs at Whitlingham Park. It was another lovely sunny morning and it didn’t take long to get some lovely photographs of the whole family and then a few more of the smaller groups that make any large family. Whitlingham Park provides good facilities, hard paths to walk upon and some lovely natural vistas. We had great fun, found some lovely spots and even saw some examples of great synchronised jumping off logs and grandmother kissing from the younger members of the family.

All in all a lovely morning and a great prelude to some food and good times to celebrate a lovely lady’s birthday.

I hope you like some of the photographs, and if you’re looking for a Norwich Photographer please get in touch.
