As a Surrey family photographer, the summer months are heaven for shooting because of the lush green grass and gorgeous blooms. This family’s photographs took place in their garden which was great as the children could run and play in a familiar comfortable setting. We jumped off benches, ran through the grass and blew bubbles! The colours of everyone’s clothes that Claire put together looked great against the lush green background of their garden. At the beginning of the shoot, I asked the children to do some BIG jumps off the bench where the family photographs would take place, to get them smiling and relaxed. I love the photograph of all three kids together, with Harry the middle child gazing up at his elder sister. As they jumped, I of course had to snap away, catching the kids in action, laughing and smiling as they flew down. They were more than happy to take a break from their jumping to rest next to their parents during the family photographs, where they smiled and had a sweet cuddle. There wasn’t much stopping after the family shots, Harry and Amelia went off for a run together through the grass which was great to capture them together. Olivia wasn’t far behind, and I loved photographing her blow bubbles. Watching her work out when to blow the bubbles, and the joy on her beautiful face when she made them was wonderful to capture. It was a great morning, full of colour and smiles.
