Family Photography in Norfolk
A new type of family photography has steadily been growing over recent years, with more people now opting for lifestyle photography over the more traditional studio setup. A lifestyle location can be anywhere - perhaps the woodland close by your home, your favourite Norfolk beach or even your back garden. With the combination of beautiful scenery and natural, candid photographs it's easy to see why lifestyle photography is becoming more popular.
We are blessed to call Norfolk our home, with areas of outstanding natural beauty on the Norfolk coast, the tranquil Norfolk Broads and not forgetting the incredible woodlands and countryside which can look beautiful at any time of the year. This provides us with abundance of wonderful Norfolk locations to capture your family photography photo-shoot.
Lifestyle photography for me as a photographer is about capturing natural photos of family and friends, enjoying themselves without having to worry about posing and feeling nervous in front of the camera - this is where the best smiles come from!
Lifestyle photo-shoots make really special and unique birthday gifts for a loved one or close friend. They can also be used for special occasions such as celebrating an engagement or perhaps you are pregnant and would like some really nice memories of you and your bump! There are no real rules when it comes to Lifestyle photography - it can be anywhere, anytime and with anyone. It's about creating special memories that you can look back on and share with those close to you.
Your lifestyle photo-shoot
Your photo-shoot will include a combination of different styled shots, with some posed but mostly natural and candid. Your photos will be taken from different perspectives - some from an elevated position, others from ground level, some close-up and some at a distance, some in colour and some in black and white. This results in a wonderful mixture of scenes that tell a real story and creates really special memories to look back on.
I like to try and capture from a short distance away, not giving too many instructions so as to keep it natural but if I spot a potentially good shot I may ask you slow down and gather any children, who of course naturally like to explore themselves! I love taking photos of children and the challenge of trying to keep up with them, of which I know well from photographing my young son Charlie. Whether they are laughing, pointing, concentrating or even pulling a funny face they are great fun to photograph.
A typical lifestyle photo-shoot lasts from one to three hours in a place of your choosing (or I can help with a suggestion). We will meet at the location and have a quick chat about the route and possible places to stop, however I find it is generally best to go with the flow, with you concentrating on enjoying yourself and leaving me to snap away in the background.
The total number of photos you can expect ranges from 15-25 for each hour of your photo-shoot, depending on the location, the availability of different perspectives, the number of people in your party and the type of weather (If the forecast the day before looks really bad then together we can re-arrange a different date).
If you would prefer a less natural approach, I am very happy to take posed family photography, at your Norfolk home, garden or a location of your choice. I have a wealth of experience photographing babies, children, couples and family group shots.
