January weather is wet and cold on the bad days and wonderfully sunny and crisp on the good days. I do love winter light for family photographs, the long orange light casting wonderful colours along the countryside. But there is something to be said for lovely summer days as well! T-shirts, longer days and stronger light allows for equally good photographs, just with a different feel. I photographed this family in their garden back in August. We had to dash indoors at one point due to a light sprinking of rain, but this gave me the chance to take the children’s portraits using the big windows and to also have some fun! I love the shot of the kids peeking over the chair (we had a good laugh together) along with the shot of the children playing on the windowsill which has a much quieter feel. As a Guildford Family Photographer, it’s wonderful to take both indoor and outdoor shots, as each background/area provides different light and complements your subjects in different ways. I had a fabulous time photographing everyone together and the best part is we all had a good laugh doing it too.
