Children and pets!

What's not to love about a walk in the woods for the children and the beloved family pooch! Seriously, all children like a walk in the woods if you can bring a bit of excitement into it. Usually that means playing games and looking for things, but as you can see here if you have a family pet to come with you then everyone is excited already. All in all that means you can get great photographs of children having fun with great scenery around too.

 

On this shoot we did quite a few group shots, but then also some individual ones as well, meaning that the client had a good selection of prints to put up on the wall afterwards.

And after all that hard work (by the children!) we went off to the park to relax and have some more serious fun - and of course take some more photographs while having fun!

Oh my how much do we all love a good party - and you can tell just how good this party was going to be!

Things I like about photographing a party...

Everyone gets dressed up and looks the part...

The warm glow of the lights in a well-dressed marquee...

Everyone having a good time...

Especially the children who get to stay up extra late!

And getting to play with lenses that rarely come out, but are just right for a good party...

And there's always some good band shots to be had too...

Family photography in Sevenoaks

I do love a family that's up for a decent walk in the countryside because there is just so much to do and enjoy - and that means everyone gets distracted, relaxed and ends up smiling. And that all means happy pictures and happy memories. Decent wellies help too, but you can get by without them just as well!

Most of this was shot in and around Knole Park in Sevenoaks - it has so many good spots hidden away. I do have a number of other favourite places to go though, plus a few more I have discovered and haven't used yet - so if you fancy a nice family walk do get in touch!

Family gathering

It's great to celebrate the big milestones in life, and usually as the milestones get bigger so do the number of family members. So if you are organising a big gathering, don't forget to capture the day - and remember you'll probably be pretty busy enjoying yourself so get me to capture it for you!

Big rooms or small, I'll manage to get you all in the frame and get you smiling - for the picture below I was using the baby's rattle to get his attention - but it helped make everyone else look up and laugh too.

Family photography in Kent (featuring MUD!)

Believe it or not, when we started out on the walk to the park for this family photoshoot, everyone was clean and smart - not a trace of mud to be seen. The children were very excited (as they always are!) to be having a photoshoot and everything was primed for a good morning.

 

Sometimes though it doesn't all go as you may have planned, and this was the day. A moment of distraction, a touch of bad luck, and we have one child slip over and plant herself firmly in the mud. But hey, mud happens - in this case, quite a lot. We pick ourselves up, we laugh about it, and we get back to playing (once we've moved away from the mud that is!).

Obviously parents don't want a photoshoot of just muddy children, so in the absence of a change of clothes, we can get creative and careful with angles, or we can get creative and sneaky with Photoshop. This was a day for both.

And of course once you get back home, you get everyone changed quickly and get some actual clean clothes shots too!
