Confining your precious family photographs in the digital dungeon that is your computer makes no sense.  And restricting them to your mobile is just mean – it is so small, how can they even breathe in there?

Photographs are your history, your memories.  They should be out in the light, on your walls where they can breathe and be a part of the family.  They should be in beautiful albums that can be taken out to visit friends and relatives, or paged through during quiet time.  Photographs should wrap you in memories like a big, cuddly blanket.

Portrait photography used to be so different from how we do it these days.  It used to be about getting smartly dressed and behaving properly in a portrait studio.  Everyone was posed and asked to smile endlessly until even the parents felt like squirming and whining.  I’m not talking about that many years ago either.  So much fun.  Like everything else technology has given us the freedom to get outdoors and move at a much faster pace.  These days only fitness levels prevent a good photographer from keeping up with the kids.  In fact, I strongly recommend taking up family photography if you’re looking for regular cardio workouts without going to the gym.  Now we just get out there, we have fun and let personalities shine.

Of course it is lovely to have beautiful memories close to hand.  Every parent wants to show photographs of their gorgeous children to friends and family…and sometimes even strangers.  I give my photography clients their very own personalised app to download to their phone.  It is an easy to use digital album of their favourite photographs from their photo shoot.  They love the beautiful, high quality photographs perfectly suited to digital display.

Horsham Family Photography

I first met Rob and Jen five years ago when they were looking for a wedding photographer.  Their wedding was such a good day and yesterday was their fourth wedding anniversary.  Congratulations to an awesome couple!

Time flew by and I next saw them when they came to my studio when George was born and then again when Oliver was born.  So, it was truly amazing to spend time again with them all last week.

We were unbelievably lucky with the weather – absolutely perfect.  We met at Warnham Local Nature Reserve near Horsham, West Sussex, and spent 1.5 hours walking around, having fun and generally wearing ourselves out.  Oh, and in between we created beautiful family memories.

I’d never been to Warnham before – it was one of Jen’s suggestions as they are Horsham locals and the boys love the nature reserve.  I Google Earthed her suggestions (gotta love technology!) and chose Warnham Local Nature Reserve, because it offered so many great opportunities for beautiful family photography.  I figured out where in the nature reserve would be best for their family photo shoot and, as always, I arrived early to wander around and plan our route.  I feel that if a shoot is well planned everyone is relaxed and there is an easy, natural rhythm that comes about.

When I saw on the Warnham Local Nature Reserve website that there were a few bird hides, I knew exactly the photograph I wanted to get.  Fortunately, being the end of the day, the hide was empty as most of the bird watchers had packed up for the day.  And, ta-da, it worked out just as I planned!

Things must be climbed and fields must be explored.  That’s what childhood is all about.

From the moment I saw the boardwalk on the website, I couldn’t wait to get them all onto this stretch.  It was an ideal for photography…and great fun for the boys too!

Late afternoon / early evening is my favourite time to photograph families outdoors in summer.  The sun is low and the golden light is just magical.

Family dog walk in Sussex

This weekend I had a fantastic early evening outdoor family photo shoot in Fairlight, Sussex, on a family dog walk.  The sun shone, the wind wafted about just enough to make it interesting, the sky was blue and the grass was green.  Just perfect for an awesome growing family and their amazing dogs.

And because I loved it so much, I want to show you more than a couple of photographs, so I’m trying something new.  Here is a short slideshow of our shoot to give you a feel for what it was like out walking and photographing in the warm sunshine.

There is a soundtrack to the slideshow – I thought I’d let you know in case you’re in the office.



Here are a few images from the shoot.
