Being a family Cambridge Family Photography Photographer is great fun, running around, making faces to make people smile, laughing, running around some more, juggling cameras, names and distractions, thinking of new natural ways to get a family group photographs whilst making a session relaxed, fun for the participants and a really positive experience. I’m really glad that my most common feed back is usually thanks for putting us at ease so quickly, and that they enjoyed something that they didn’t expect to enjoy, of course after how much they like the photographs 🙂
On this shoot we headed to an iconic Cambridgeshire landmark for a shoot in some lush grounds, lots of long grass fields, avenues and trees, which was great for on a sunny day you often need a little shade, and for little people it’s always great to have adventure on hand to keep them enjoying their experience. We climbed trees, searched for bugs, biked around, sat around, ran around, had lots of piggy backs, played on a bridge, up a tree house, had snacks and more importantly laughed, and had fun with it.
After many years of photographing families and having a family of my own I’m a firm advocate of using adventure and fun as a great way to obtain natural and beautiful photographs. Posing is ok but children get bored of it very quickly, so you have to keep moving and keeping it fresh as eyes and smiles always tell you whether someone’s engaged or not. That’s why I’ll keep on getting great exercise and some quality time outdoors during my sessions both of which I love.
These guys were fantastic, two little men who came alive with exploring and any fun activity we could find, and their rightfully proud parents, great fun on an afternoon out in Cambridgeshire.
