I’ve just had a few days visiting my family. Got to catch up with my parents, two of my aunts, my nephew and his wife and my niece and her children. It was lovely to see her children who are almost 2-and-a-half and 5 months old. My daughter loved seeing her little cousins, who we don’t get to see very often. And I loved both seeing them and photographing them. The sample of pics below are family portraits at their most informal, just taken as and when during a morning of chatting and playing. If I’d been really concentrating, rather than enjoying time with family, I could have moved a few things out of the background, and of course if I was doing a proper photo session I would. But I think that these photos show that informal portraits, taken in a familiar setting, using natural light as much as possible, allow children to relax and be seen at their best. If you agree and would like to discuss having some relaxed photos of your family, then get in touch.
