These photos are a perfect example of natural family photos at home.
It’s hard to believe I took these last summer as, since then, I’ve returned to their family home again for a pregnancy photo session and to photograph their new addition to their family!
When I was asked to do a family photo session at their home, they wanted really natural photos of their little boy in his own surroundings as he spent so much time playing in the garden. They wanted these memories capturing forever appreciating that time flies by so quickly.
Photo in their garden was a really good idea of theirs as their little boy was instantly relaxed and just had fun doing lots of little things that he usually does at home … just with me there to capture the memories.
It was a beautiful sunny day but, as I often photograph in high sun, I try and work with it as much as possible.
One element that always seems to work well with children (of all ages) is water! After taking plenty of “dry photos” his parents turned taps on and got the sprinkler going which, as you will see from their photos below, was great fun for everyone.
Photos like the ones below, really capture what children experience growing up but often are never captured. These are what I would call magical memories and will become more so for the little boy when he gets older as he will have the photos to relive a time he probably won’t recall too much.

The weather is beautiful at the moment and summer is a great time to capture this style of photos. If you would like to take a look at more of my family photos, please click here.
