Choosing to have family photos at home
When it comes to family photoshoots there is no right or wrong for where to do them. Some families choose to go to a place they love to visit or a place that has special meaning to them. Some choose somewhere that is going to be fun for kids to run and explore. For some, like Karen & Beau, they want to do family photos at home (with maybe a little dash out to a local park for a run around).
Family photos at home can be very special. This is the place where you feel most relaxed, most comfortable. It’s where life happens day to day; the noisy, the messy, the fun, the calm, the cuddles and everything in between. Like all my family photo sessions I capture what’s happening in a relaxed and natural way. These lifestyle photography sessions aren’t over posed, I don’t need you to look to the camera for every shot and they are very much led by the little ones in your life!
We will do a few photos of everyone in the family, often in a big cuddle or with kids on shoulders. But for the most part, it’s all about you having fun together. Exploring, playing, cuddling, laughing and enjoying some family time.
Karen and Beau booked their shoot and chose to do family photos at home. I had the great pleasure of photographing their wedding when Karen was pregnant with their little one. So when their son arrived it was lovely to head over to Essex to catch up with them and get some photos of their little family.
Their son was all action, running around the garden and up and down the slide. After a while playing in the house we took a short walk to a local park for more photos. After plenty of cuddles and a fair bit of throwing their son in the air we finished up with a few photos of the view across the Estuary. This is a view point they love so it seemed a perfect way to finish the photo shoot.
I’m a London Family Photographer and love to travel to photograph fabulous families across the South East of England.
I offer Essex family photography, Surrey family photography, Kent family photography, Hertfordshire family photography, East Sussex family photography, West Sussex family photography and London family photography.
Hope you have enjoyed this Essex family photo shoot and got some ideas for doing family photos at home.
