It’s fair to say that I was almost dreading (and yet, highly anticipating!) the day I would share this summer family and children photography session on my blog. Why, I hear you ask? Because it was faultless. And I knew how impossible it would be to choose just a small proportion of images to showcase. The picks you’ll see here have taken me a good half hour to select!

You know when everything about an experience is perfect? This was just it. The perfect place – the peaceful, wild ruins of the Roman Wall at Silchester, between Reading and Basingstoke. The perfect weather – warm but not too hot; bright, but not too sunny; and dotted with just the right amount of cloud to add enough drama to the skies. And of course the most important, key element – a family with an incredible rapport, sharing the sort of love that is completely unselfconscious. The kind of family dynamic and personality that simply shines in front the camera.

This was the C family and their family photo shoot. Two hours spent laughing, playing, chatting and just being happy in the here and now. We shared stories and experiences and got to know one another. There were snacks. A LOT of walking in the countryside (with no complaining from the children, natch!). We even discovered what looked like a fragment of an ancient Roman tile. I don’t know what more anyone could want, really. I had a fantastic time and am really proud of each one of these beautiful family portraits!

What a splendid summer of family photography this has been so far. It’s been wonderful to see many of my past clients return, and to meet new families and their lovely children for the first time.

My children and family photography studio is based in Basingstoke, but I travel all over! Family portraits on location are my specialty. I often visit Reading, Winchester, Southampton, Guildford, West London and beyond to meet my families either in their homes or at their favourite locations.

With the start of the Autumn just a month away, there is no better time to get in touch to book your own lifestyle family photography shoot outdoors, in the beautiful colours of the season! I know of quite a few places that would be just perfect 🙂 Simply give me a call on 07941 355027 or contact me through the website contact form. I’ll be in touch very shortly to help make it all happen. I look forward to hearing from you!
