Working as a family photographer in the winter is just as much fun as in the other seasons – you just have to make sure everyone is warm and find the right backdrops. I photographed this extended family together to celebrate their grandmother’s birthday. We met at Frensham Ponds near Farnham, and went for a beautiful walk around the area. The children climbed in the pine trees, which provided lovely portrait photographs, and ran around the pond and eventually into it! Thank goodness for wellies! The water was great as it reflected the light for the children’s photographs, and it also was great fun for them to splash about in. The colours from the pine trees and the heath were still vibrant which provided great backdrops for their family photographs. I love the photograph of all the children with their grandmother – every expression is different and joyous!
