Birthday celebrations have always been cause to get the family together for a photograph, so why not some lifestyle photographs of your family enjoying themselves?
A recent Birthday portrait photography session saw me in North East Norfolk at Cromer photographing a wonderful family celebrating mum’s 60th in style. We met up at the lovely Rocket House Cafe and started from there with two of the family’s lovely pooches in tow. We made the best of the soft hazy afternoon light by having a stroll down the beach as it’s surface became a lovely glassy reflective surface with the retreat of the tide. With the background of Cromer’s rather iconic seafront and of course the pier we couldn’t go wrong and a few misbehaving dogs and generally a bit of paddling proved to further lighten the mood.
We then had a walk up to happy valley which is a lovely peaceful place overlooking the town and on the superb stretch of coastal path atop the cliffs that run between Cromer and Overstrand. All the time we and the dogs were getting some exercise and enjoying a lovely afternoon. Back toward Cromer it would’ve been remiss not to take in a few of the floral displays above the town in it’s gardens before popping down to what was an absolutely packed Pier to take a couple more photographs of the family relaxing before a few more early evening festivities for the family to mark a lovely lady’s significant birthday.
The aim of lifestyle sessions is always to take a little slice of the everyday and special events and put it aside for present and future enjoyment. A relaxed bit of the everyday your family and you as you are, I hope I managed to fulfil my brief on this occasion 🙂
I hope you like the photographs.
