Photographer: Lauren Mitchell Photography
Venue: Bracknell, Berkshire
I was with the Quinn Family for their family photography session at a park in Bracknell in the sunshine. Fiona contacted me because she wanted some natural family photographs of her, her husband and two sons and they hadn’t long moved to Berkshire so before meeting we decided on the right location. I love capturing natural moments between families so I was delighted to be asked. They wanted a mixture of more posed photographs looking at the camera as a family and then ones where I am capturing the moments.
We started on the picnic rug they had brought with them (a great tip and saves having dirty clothes) followed on with some individual ones with the boys with each parent. Fiona had done an amazing job coordinating the families outfits so they looked beautiful on camera together. I love the colour salmon pink so this was a big hit with me 🙂 Following this we then had a few ‘action’ shots and found a huge fallen tree to capture our final images together before the sunset. It was all timed to perfection as their youngest fell asleep at 7pm! He does this every evening!
I would highly recommend photographing in either the early morning or evening as it makes for the best light and reduces the harsh shadows you will get if the sun is out during midday. It works a treat and produces some gorgeous images. As always below as a selection of images from our time together. Please contact me if you are looking to book a relaxed shoot with natural images. There is nothing better than being able to go through each photograph and see your children and yourselves having fun, enjoy the sunshine with big smiles!
Love, Lauren x
