A recent family portrait session took me to Snettisham in North West Norfolk. Snettisham is a lovely location nestled beside the coast and in very close proximity to the Royal Sandringham Estate. The family I visited as a Snettisham Photographer were on holiday at the beautiful Sutton Lea Manor. The manor is a large house located in lovely gardens on the edge of the village with a great vantage to look upon the village itself. The gardens made for a great spot in which this extended family’s children could play in safety and in which I could photograph the family.
Keen to use their holiday time to head to Snettisham beach for a while before heading home we made an early Sunday morning start to the session. Children are often up and about bright and early and on this occasion there were no exceptions. I photographed the whole family together in several locations with their grandmother before we used various locations in the manor’s lovely gardens to photograph the members of the family including the grand children, mums and dads. We got to use doorways, red wood sequoia trees, cool areas in the shade of beach trees, and the lawns to create lots of variety in the images produced.
The great thing about the early start and the gardens at Sutton Lea Manor was that on an otherwise particularly sunny day we found lots of shaded spots for photography. We also had the session wrapped up within two hours despite having a large family to photograph and this meant that the families could head to the beach before long car journeys home at the end of the day ready for school on the Monday morning.
If you would like to book a portrait session then please feel free to get in touch. I’m glad to say that a presentation boxed USB has been delivered to this family containing all the edited images from their session ready for printing and a HD slideshow which allows them to view all the edited images in a leisurely fashion. I hope you like a small selection of the photographs produced.
