I had a fantastic opportunity this weekend to shoot a family portrait on the North Yorkshire Moors. On the run up to this family portrait I spoke to mum Sarah and we discussed there clothing colour palette and more importantly the style of the images she wanted me to shoot. I’m comfortable shooting very stylised family portraits and organic free flowing families doing what young families do, with minimal posing and direction by me. I love this real way of working and the results reflect the special bond between each family member.

The majority of mums and dads don’t like being photographed, this is normal. A more relaxed style of family portrait is definitely what I’m getting more and more booking’s for these days. It’s still important for me to be mindful of flattering the adults, but it’s equally as important that the family look real together.

The weather up here for this shoot was warm, but overcast and we even had a splash of rain. When you live and work in the North East of England you have to get used to an ever changing weather landscape. Rain unfortunately temporarily stops play, we have to book another session date at no cost to you.
