Special birthdays and occasions are always worth making a big fuss for, getting the family together, making a weekend of it, with bbq’s, activities, meals and fun. It’s always a privilege to be invited along to photograph a family enjoying such an occasion, not to mention great fun. On this weekend a wonderful lady had a birthday get together and às a Norwich photographer I got to stay relatively close to home with a short trip toward Aylsham for the shoot in the grounds of a lovely holiday home.
On arrival I had a quick look around the house and gardens only to discover a wonderful stretch of woodland to the rear of the property complete with lake and pathways. With all shoots if you introduce a bit of adventure and exploration it particularly engages young participants so we headed out to explore and found some lovely spots for photographs of this large family and the smaller groups and families within it. Heading into the woods afforded us quite a lot of shaded areas which on a sunny day is a bonus when you want to try and avoid hard shadows and contrast on people’s faces.
Photographs of the whole family together, smaller families, kids, grandparents, couples and kids and all the fun then ensued, with some great comedy moments and lots of relaxation, running around and exploring all against a natural canvas of woods, tracks and paths. It was all great fun and there’s a small sample of the photographs below.
