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 isn’t the best plan!
