A little while ago I had the pleasure of photographing this little sweetie pie. The very good natured baby Nancy was just about to turn six months old and was full of smiles. Mum and dad were very laid back, and that made the recipe for a very successful lifestyle location shoot at their home in Nottingham. Thank you for being such great models and clients guys! Here are a few photos from the shoot.

West Bridgford Family Photographer | Family Photo Shoot

I visited a family in West Bridgford to photograph their family. I must say, this is one of my favourite areas of Nottingham. I love to take photos in West Bridgford Park. There are endless possibilities for photos there.

The challenge was to try and capture the whole group in a family photograph. Seeing as there were three energetic children involved I knew I had my work cut out. However, I never like to force these type of scenarios, as they would only upset the kids and produce terrible  moody photos. I went with the flow and the mood of the kids. I followed them as they dashed off onto the play frames and into the hiding places in the woods. These produce some great shots in their own right.

I like to photograph children at play, doing what they like to do, being themselves. I find that this shows the children in their true light, and these are the photos that I like to treasure of my own children in years to come. I’m not a great fan of posed studio portraits. I don’t think the kids are either.

Once the kids felt that they had had a good run around and we got to know each other a bit better, I started to suggest, with the help of the parents, that they all got together and sit on a log for a one minute huddle. You only get a few seconds to capture the highly valued family shot! These golden moments were interspersed throughout the session as much as the children’s attention spans permitted.

I think I did an OK job.
