Fun Family Photography in Billericay

Summer holidays are here!

My boys are now enjoying their last days at school before breaking up for the summer holidays. I cannot wait to enjoy the lazy days, busy days, park days, bike rides, endless football games, the zoo, the beach, visiting friends and family, the weddings, the portrait shoots, the ice cream, and even the tantrums, I welcome it all.

Here are a few images from a family portrait experience. We had a little walk around Lake Meadows, played some games to encourage beautiful natural moments, and had lots of fun along the way. Have a great summer holiday!

Family life is not perfect, and when kids are involved it can be chaotic, messy and downright raucous! The experience I create, and my documentary style is all about celebrating this, not disguising it. Creating family storyboards that capture the love felt, with unique personalities, family quirks and eye-rolling humour along the way. Each shoot is flexible and relaxed. We won’t rush things. Instead, we’ll follow the natural flow of your family. Artfully documenting memorable moments, and capturing you and your loved ones at their beautiful, unposed best.  You never have to worry about your children being well behaved, rigid and formal; I encourage the craziness! For more information and to arrange your family portrait experience this summer, please get in touch soon, I look forward to hearing from you.

Victoria + Ashley // Lake Meadows Billericay

A very nice portrait experience with the lovely Victoria & Ashley, a freezing cold February afternoon at Lake Meadows park in Billericay. 

Lake Meadows is a popular park in Billericay. It gets quite busy when the weather is beautiful, it's a lovely place to chillout and enjoy an ice cream. I've used this location a few times, for portrait shoots with couples and families, and is a place I'd recommend for your portrait experience if you're local.

Fun games and prompts for couples in love

Prompts for creating a fun time on your pre-wedding portrait experience and/or wedding day

Just one of my techniques for creating natural smiles, laughs and a memorable time. I enjoy working with couples of all ages, whether that's on a pre-wedding portrait experience or on the wedding day itself. I prefer to create a situation rather than posing, and I do this by using my tried and tested prompts. The prompts are light-hearted games and suggestions designed to put you at ease, to encourage a smile and to create a few laughs. The wonderful couple are Amy & Liam, more of their images can be seen here.
