Here are a few examples of my family photography from a recent shoot I was commissioned to do in South Wales, by Amy and Toby whose wedding I previous photographed back in 2011. If you would like to see how they looked back then as bride and groom, please feel free to follow this link, Fonmon Castle wedding. Though in fact I met up with them last year to photograph the recentl arrival of baby George and her sister Eve, you can see those photographs here, children portraits. This time we were joined by Toby’s oldest daughter, Liv.
As with my wedding photography, when I am asked to do some portraits, my approach is more observational than organisational, I try to make them as natural as possible, with young children, this is simply a job of letting them getting use to you and then photograph as they play. With a larger family group you do have to do some direction, though is often just a case of requesting everyone stays together for the occasional moment, and every once in a while even a curious cat will cooperate.
