I’m a lucky guy. I get to meet lovely families, have great fun photographing them, get to know them, and then get asked to do it all again. I love repeat custom, and get asked to photograph a great many family’s almost on a yearly basis. A rapport develops, not only do I know names, and faces, but I know a particular sense of humour, adventure, and fun, and that’s just in the adults.

A recent session saw me revisiting Bacton Woods, a great large wood near North Walsham, with lots of variety in it’s woodland environment, plenty of space for adventure and fun. Commissioned by the grandmother of this lovely family we headed into the woods for some fun. Along the way we found tiny baby frogs, dragged a little dead wood around with us just for fun, ran through pine plantations, posed for couples photographs, pulled faces, and natural faces, found natural moments and fun moments and captured them all. Shared radio listening recommendations, chatted, had a great time recording a bit more precious family life. Then as is now the tradition the family had a picnic and I joined them for some lovely tea and cake:-)

Great fun, I hope you like some of the not so serious and more natural photographs of this great bunch. I’m a happy family photographer.

Family photography with young children needs a relaxed and patient portrait photographer and an environment in which children and family can relax enjoy themselves and enjoy being together. Lynford Aboretum was the chosen location for a recent shoot with a young family. The aboretum has massive grounds, lots of room to have a walk, relax, stop every now and then for some photographs and a little mess about before continuing on to the next photogenic spot.

I was lucky to have photographed this lovely family before not long after the birth of their first child: now an adventurous and wonderfully cheeky 3 year old. This time it was the turn of the family’s new addition at just over 1 year, and a chance to document a little family life. We had an afternoon session and the boys woke from a little nap refreshed and in a great mood to be photographed, finding themselves on a lovely day in a woodland environment who wouldn’t be?

We sat amongst a lovely wooded area, perversely in the centre of the arboretum’s car park, before heading off into the park proper to explore the woodland walks, bridges, lake side and more. The boys were really well behaved, didn’t compete for mum and dad’s attention too much, enjoyed exploring and getting some fresh air. Dad and Mum enjoyed a good walk as did I, and we found ourselves feeding a healthy family of swans resident on Lynford’s lake before heading home.

I hope you like some of the images from the session and hope if you need a portrait photographer that you’ll get in touch.

Sometimes a location holds a special place in your heart. This was the case with the father of a family based in the USA who revisited a childhood holiday haunt with his family earlier this year. I was invited along by his wife to produce some lifestyle photographs for the family on their visit, to document not only the visit but the family at a special stage in their lives.

Lifestyle photography outdoors in the countryside particularly at a beach is great as adventure and exploration is a big part of childhood and brings out the best in kids when they’re being photographed. I became very conscious that Dad on this particular shoot was not only keen to share his childhood adventures with his boys but was also on finding himself back at his special location letting himself enjoy a bit of a childhood adventure. As for mum well I think she was enjoying watching her boys enjoy themselves.

It was a great morning, late summer, before the crowds built up at the beach and wonderful fun. The guys explored the woods, found rope swings, climbed on trees, and then headed out onto the beach to jump over the surf, and enjoy time with mum and dad.

I hope you like some of the images from the session and if you’re looking for lifestyle photography in North Norfolk that you’ll get in touch to arrange a session.

Old Hunstanton is without doubt one of my favourite Norfolk beaches, time and time again I fall in love with walking through the small village of beach huts at the back of the beach not to mention the multi-coloured cliffs and the beach itself which are great.

A recent family session centred on producing some photographs for a proud mum and grandmother to enjoy as a birthday present. Said grandmother wasn’t actually present at the beach and instead her sons, their partners and a very cheerful granddaughter met me on the beach so I could hopefully produce a photograph fit for presenting to mum for her birthday. It was a hot sunny day which was great as all three brothers had travelled quite a distance between them to be in Norfolk for the weekend.

Although the aim was to get a photograph of everyone, it’s not advisable to miss the opportunity to celebrate a relatively new family and two wonderful additional couples during a family session so I took the opportunity to produce lots of photographs of the group whilst they enjoyed the sunny weather and the lovely peaceful beach and multi-coloured beach hut village. It was a lovely session relaxed and very entertaining both for and because of the presence of a certain little lady who loved the attention of the camera and her mum, dad, aunts and uncles. With a smile at every opportunity the little lady concerned returned the attention she was receiving with more than adequate entertainment for both me as photographer and her family.

I hope you like the photographs from the session and will consider me for any “Sunny Hunny” photography needs-yours an Old Hunstanton Photographer.

A holiday in Norfolk is often chosen for family get togethers, usually to mark significant family events such as a birthday or anniversary. On this occasion a large family had chosen to spend some quality time together in what is a normally sunny Norfolk at a lovely Barn called Brazenhall Barns.

Brazenhall Barns is somewhere I’ve visited before to photograph a family and is a great place for families to stay with vast living space suitable for larger stays and a great garden to utilise: all set in a lovely rural location convenient for so many jaunts throughout Norfolk. On the occasion of my visit the weather wasn’t being it’s typical Norfolk self and we dodged the showers a little in the comfortable interior of the Barn waiting for the sun to come out. A consequence of this is that I soon learned that the lovely lawn area to the back of the barn is possessed of great drainage, no sooner had the rain stopped we could head out without fear of puddles, the kids even being able to sit down on the grass in between showers without getting too wet.

We did some semi-formal photographs, some smaller family photographs, lots of candid shots during the rain inside and lots of the kids playing, it was a great afternoon and produced lots of photographs for the family to remember their stay.

I hope you like a small selection of the photographs from the day, and if you’re visiting Norfolk and would like photographs at your holiday accommodation or out at one of Norfolk’s iconic beaches or sites then please get in touch with me Phil, a Norfolk Holiday Photographer.
