Family Portrait Photography – Rachael, Dan and Family

I had photographed Rachael and Daniel’s wedding and documented their babies as the family grew and it was a pleasure today to visit their home for some family portrait photography and update the family album with some relaxed pictures¬† of the children. Here are a few images that caught my eye at the editing stage. Children often are more at ease at home and it’s a great opportunity to shoot some images of them in their own surroundings.

Berkshire Family Portrait Photography – Steve, Lisa and Family

It was a pleasure to welcome back Steve, Lisa and the boys for another studio family portrait photography session today. I understand that in America a lot of families book a family portrait session once a year which is a really nice idea. I think most parents would agree with me that the children grow up pretty fast and how valuable would an album be with, say, 20 family portraits spaced a year apart? Pretty amazing I think. Here are few favourites from Steve and Lisa’s studio portrait session.

Berkshire Family Photography – Andy, Viv and Charlotte

I love shooting family portraits at home. Sometimes it’s a really nice thing to do – often young children are more relaxed and secure in their own surroundings and this makes the portrait photography a little easier. There is also more room for the children to move around and this makes for some interesting photographs.

The lighting can be a challenge outside the confines of the studio but I enjoy the challenge. The backgrounds to the images are obviously a lot more personal to the subjects. Given that family portraits are treasured for decades after the event I think it’s really nice for the children to have this insight into how their house looked when they were young and also how their parents looked at the time.

I had photographed Andy and Viv’s wedding a few years previously and it was a delight to be asked back to photograph them and baby Charlotte.

Here are a few favourite images from their home portrait session.

Usually we spend around an hour and a half shooting a family session at home and this can be extended if necessary. I find with younger children that it’s best to let them dictate the pace of the session. Sometimes it’s fun to extend the session with a trip to the local park or other outdoor location. In a few years it’s lovely to look back on what seems like a normal everyday occurrence for the children.
