Essex Coast Family Photoshoot

I loved hanging out with these guys!  We had so much fun on the beach, within minutes the kids were covered in mud, the dogs were running riot and it was mild level chaos.  I love that we managed to capture a lot of that ‘normal’ life as well as some lovely portraits of them.  I always try and get a balance of both sides as I think they are both equally important.  It’s easy to focus on the ‘pretty’ pictures but I think it’s really important to get photos that feel like you too.  It’s why I always shoot in a more documentary style and why I love photographing outdoors or at home, rather than a studio.
