Family Portraits Emberton Country Park

Family portraits Emberton Country Park

I’m lucky enough to live in a really pretty part of the world, close to some very beautiful parks.  Emberton Country Park is right on my doorstep and is a stunning backdrop for family portraits at all times of the year.

The lake produces some stunning reflections and there are some fabulous play areas and a whole range of gorgeous backdrops all over the park.

Relaxed outdoor family portraits are my favourite type of session, I find that both children and adults are less self-conscious with a bit of fresh air, producing much more natural results.  I take a few posed photographs but mostly we get the children to play with each other and the whole family to mess around together.  When you book your session we can pick a location to suit you near where you live.  Or if you book one of my mini-sessions near Olney these often take place at Emberton Park.   I do sometimes photograph indoors but as I tell all my customers I nearly always manage to shoot outside, regardless of our changeable UK weather, because I have my very own weather fairies !   Cloudy weather is actually great for shoots – much better than really bright sunlight so you don’t need to worry if it’s not a sunny day.  Last year I only cancelled outdoor shoot at the end of November due to rain – not bad for good old rainy England.  Like I say – weather fairies.

Here’s a few images taken from various recent shoots in Emberton par.   I hope you enjoy this sample and get in touch if you’d like a shoot for your family.  I’m getting booked up quickly and now taking bookings for Autumn.  There are a handful of shoots available on Saturdays over the summer – and more flexibility if you can do a weekday shoot.

I’ve had some lovely spring shoots outdoors this Spring – despite the challenges of the weather.  It’s always nicer to capture images outdoors in a relaxed setting, where a family can just be themselves.   I am very lucky to live in a beautiful little town, with lots of really pretty spots to take pictures.  It’s so nice to wander around finding lovely spots for photos, with great light and natural backdrops.

This shoot started in a pretty little garden that is tucked away not far from the town square.  Then we took a wander with the little boy and the dog down the river.

I hope you enjoy this natural location shoot in Olney.

I haven’t blogged any family or baby shoots for a little while.  However I’ve been busy with shoots this Spring and very lucky that I have weather fairies to protect me and my lovely customers.  It’s rained so much the last couple of months but I’ve been really lucky and managed all my planned shoots outdoors despite the endless rain.

This one is a recent shoot in Milton Keynes, with a lovely family and a gorgeous little person who was a few days away from her first birthday.  This little girl was such a joy to photograph – she was such fun with a fabulous smile and cheeky little personality.  I really enjoyed capturing these moments and hope that enjoy this selection of images.

Saracens Rugby Champions

Saracens Rugby Champions

Congratulations to the fabulous Saracen’s players for winning both the English and European Championships.  Over the last few years, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing a few of the Saracens players with their gorgeous families and lovely children.  I know all the players and their families are a fabulous support network for one another and it’s always a pleasure to revisit each and every family to capture special memories for them.   I also love seeing the little ones in their kits as mascots on the pitch during the games.

So well done to the whole team and well done the lovely families that proudly support them.  Here are few of my favourite images collated from across the last few years.

I hope you enjoy them

It’s been a week of sunshine and the spring colour is appearing – early daffodils and snowdrop and pink blossom on the trees.  As a photographer in Olney, Milton Keynes I am a self confessed fan of black and white photography, but you can’t beat a bit of colour when the flowers are out.  I will be posting up some spring images to get you in the mood for Spring Portrait Sessions and mini-sessions but thinking of all the gorgeous colours out there and beautiful clear blue skies and me reminiscing about Autumn and I realised that I hadn’t posted this wonderful colourful session from the end of last year.

These images are taken wandering around our gorgeous little town of Olney Milton Keynes where we are blessed to have perfect little photographic spots around every corner.   If you are looking for a Spring mini-session for your family get in touch on email or keep an eye on my facebook page here where I will be posting up details.

If you are looking for a photographer with years of experience in photographing and bonding with children (from the shy to the crazy), with the ability to relax the adults and make the session fun and who will produce images of the highest quality then please get in touch.   I specialist in outdoor lifestyle photo shoots which are natural and relaxed and fun.  I’m looking to capture your your children’s personalities and your relationship as a family not just sit you down against a white background and ask you all to smile.

Hope you like these family portraits.
