A brilliant family photography session on location at their home in Cornwall! It was right after the Beast from the East snowstorms - they even had the tiny remnants of a snowman (well, apparently it was a snow penguin, I was told!). So it was really cold outside but lovely and sunny. We got everyone out and up on the drive for some family group photos, and then headed back in to let the cousins mess around for some more photos. The best light was in the entrance hall, where there was a small sofa bed, which saved the day when someone suggested we pull it out - it was perfect for all of them to spread out on and I absolutely love the photos of them all lying there together. It was a fun age range - from 4 months to 8 years old. As kids get older it can be difficult for them to loosen up in front of the camera, and I'm not going to lie, I was finding it hard to think up things that would draw them out while keeping a 3 year old's attention. But I had the team behind me (mums, dads and grandparents) and between us I think we did a great job!
If you're wanting to capture your family all together, a home or outdoor photo session can be a lot of fun! Visit the family photography page or get in touch for more information. I'd love to hear from you!
