Hanningfield Reservoir Essex Family Photoshoot
I love it when I get to revisit families for a photoshoot.  These guys had added an extra family member since I last saw them and moved to the countryside.  We headed to one of my favourite Essex spots for families, Hanningfield Reservoir.  Hanningfield is a great place for pre-school and young kids as there's a little Wind in the Willows trail and enough things on the short walk to be entertaining for everyone.  Plus you get a cafe at the end for any frazzled parents!! We were super lucky with the weather as it had been raining for weeks but we had full blown sunshine on this day!  After a bit of time at home (I often find this is a nice ...

Suffolk Family Photoshoot in Autumn
Suffolk Autumn Family Photoshoot
Who else loves autumn?  It's one of my favourite times of year to photograph.  All those lovely colours and dreamy light. We all popped on our wellies and headed out for a bit of a walk with the dog. Luckily these guys had the most beautiful spot right on their doorstep in the Suffolk countryside so we didn't have to go to far to get some nice photos.  You definitely don't want an autumn photoshoot with kids if you want to keep them neat and tidy but if you love to embrace the outdoors (and the mud!) then I'd definitely recommend this time of year.

Coggeshall Essex Family Photoshoot
I do a lot of family photoshoots with toddlers and babies so it's always a treat getting to photograph families with older kids.  They are still changing so much at this age and older kids often really enjoy getting look at the photos after and share the experience with everyone.  The important thing at this age is to make sure you've got a few activities lined up so it's enjoyable, rather than making the whole thing about 'staged' photos which often gets a bit tedious -even for grown ups!  Plus it's a good chance to tell a bit more of the family story and put a bit more context into it the photographs.  These pictures were for Grandma's birt ...

Dagenham Family Photoshoot
I love a bit of at home and outdoor combo photoshoots - the best of both worlds!  This family were so lovely, we met at their home in Dagenham, North London and then headed to a local park.  As usual I was mostly just reading off how the kids would be happiest. Especially with younger children I think it's super important to be on their wavelength.  If they are happy at home, best to spend longer there but if you can sense they need a run around then outdoors it is!  I try not to make too many plans with younger kids and encourage parents to do the same.  Trust me if you want happy photos with you all then forcing situations on them generally ...

Toddler Family Photoshoot Hertford
Such a brilliant time exploring the woods near Hertford, with this lovely family.  I love this baby/toddler age when they are starting to explore and really get into stuff.  It's always a great time for photos as they change so much at that age but they are big enough to be into everything and they are so full of personality!
