For some people a professional family photography shoot can be a slightly nervous experience – they want everything to go well, the weather to be perfect, the kids to behave, everyone to smile and everybody to look their best. I like to make it a fun and enjoyable event and let everyone relax and be themselves.
Funnily enough, when another professional photographer asked me to do his family photography session I must admit an anxious thought did enter my head. I knew he produced excellent work and I was honoured that he’d asked me to capture some special moments with his family so I wanted to ensure he was happy with the results.
As it turned out, Nick and his family couldn’t have been more perfect and the photography session in Banstead was a real pleasure. His family were so delightful that after a few seconds it was just like any other portrait session.
The two girls were so gorgeous and playful with their little baby brother. We started the session at their home and with a young baby it often works out better that way as everything is still very comforting and familiar for the newest family member. We then did a quick trip over to the grandparents’ home in Chipstead to capture three generations of the family in one beautiful garden. I was delighted to hear from Nick that he was really happy with the results – with such a nice family, who wouldn’t be.
