Transatlantic guests, a 50th wedding anniversary, an invite to photograph the 60th anniversary-what more needs to be said about a great family session at the very beautiful Hall Farmhouse in Oxborough, Norfolk.

I’ll admit I was a few minutes late to this session, I’d zeroed in on another Hall Farmhouse in a neighbouring village, it wasn’t open for business as a luxury holiday let, so I had to find the right place quickly and wow, Hall Farmhouse is another lovely place to stay in Norfolk.

I arrived to a family biding their time completing a cross-word in a large country kitchen. With the weather looking a little dodgy at times we opted to wait for a rain cloud that was slowly dropping great blobs of water on the garden to pass before setting of outdoors around the large village pond opposite the Farmhouse. After a stroll around, feeding the ducks and a quick visit to the local playground for the kids we returned to the house to take some more photographs and celebrate a very special couples 50th anniversary. 50 years is quite an achievement and I’m seeing more and more such wedding anniversary’s in my family photography work. It’s great to see grandparents celebrating with all the generations of their family, watching their family grow happily and enjoying the occasion.

I had a great time, heard how good the pool was at the property, had a lovely cup of tea or two and photographed a loving couple and their lovely family, I hope you like some of the photographs.

We’d had to postpone a previous session for this family due to inclement weather: heavy showers stopped play. I’m glad to say that although we had to reschedule for later in the year when a family based around the UK would be back together again in Norfolk, second time proved lucky and we enjoyed sunshine and blue skies.

We met up at How Hill in the centre of the Norfolk Broads, a great nature reserve, education centre and an iconic landmark to sailors on the broads, How Hill is also the home of some of the greatest displays of the beautiful Swallow Tail butterfly especially in June. A large family with children should be allowed to work off some steam before a photographer can even contemplate taking many photographs of them in a relaxed state but there was almost no stopping this energetic family who shot after balls in every direction and showed more than a little skill with a football. When everyone had arrived though it was time to take some photographs and we set about having a look around How Hill to find some great spots for photographs.

A special photograph or two were taken for the couple at the head of this family which included a quick stroll down beside the river itself chatting to the holidaying boaters as we went. We got some lovely photographs of the couple alongside the river with a great windmill(pump) in the background before heading back to the family for some more photographs.

I hope you like some of the photographs and consider me when choosing your lifestyle photographer.

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.
