Wonderful weather in the summer meant lots of opportunity to get out of the studio and enjoy the outdoors. With autumn now upon us there are still some lovely mild days and the autumn colours will be looking fabulous for location shoots. Some families prefer to have an outdoors family portrait session rather than the studio – this can work particularly well with larger groups, dogs and for families who prefer the freedom of the outdoors to the confines of the studio. Every location portrait session will be different as the locations, weather, colours and light change according to the time of year and seasons, so it offers the opportunity for a truly unique portrait session. I am happy to travel to local areas around Beaconsfield, including Amersham, Marlow, Chalfont St Giles, Burnham etc, all of which offer a range of different and colourful settings.
This family had four children and a young dog, and were keen to have their shoot in the local woods and countryside near Marlow where they often walk, so off we went. Blessed by a beautiful September day, the setting was perfect and after some shots in the woods themselves we found ourselves in a lovely open setting with space for the kids and dog to run about.
Having the freedom of space on a location shoot can be great for letting children “be themselves” and result in wonderfully spontaneous photos, allowing the children to interact with each other in a more relaxed way than is feasible in the studio.
If you are interested in having a location family shoot then do get in touch with me to discuss where and when might be the best place for your session. Your photos will be truly unique!
