Norfolk Family, Children's and Baby Portrait Photography » Natural Photography for Family, Children and Babies. Outdoor and home sessions available in Norfolk and Suffolk visit the site to learn more.

I love my work, sometimes essentially because I get the excuse to be a big kid as a Norwich Family Photographer. This recent session involved everything that makes children, however old they may be, smile.

If you want to see natural portrait photographs, full of personality, fun and smiles, then head to the woods in Autumn. Children love the woods because they can explore, have a little adventure and of course have fun. On this occasion I took out three children and their mum to a lovely deciduous wood with a lovely path and great areas to explore and have fun with.

The session was very much less about trying to get the children together with mum for photographs and more about some very distinct personalities enlivened by their environment. It was like shooting completely reportage photographs of this little family simply because of the preoccupation with the adventure at hand and because I’ve photographed the family on numerous other occasions: they’re very comfortable with being photographed. Hopefully these photographs show what an adventurous group they are as upon entering the woods I had to bargain that the children would let me and mum catch up once they’d expended some of their boundless energy.

The colours of autumn, the adventure of fallen trees and of course the outgoing nature of the subjects and their relaxed front of camera attitude made this a really fun session and no doubt a great record of several hours of fun in an autumnal wood.

If you’re looking for a Norwich family photographer and fancy getting out and about then please get in touch.

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.
