Summer Grasses – A Relaxed Family Photo Shoot, Southampton

Family

All I want

There is nothing I love more than capturing a family enjoying themselves. My whole approach to family photography is to capture joy, emotion, and connection.

Without those three fundamental aspects then I’m not doing my job properly.

As luck would have it, I stumbled upon a beautiful summer grass field a few weeks before my July Mini session for family photos were due to take place. The light was absolutely perfect. It had easy access and endless possibilities for creating the most stunning images.

The perfect family photo shoot doesn’t have to have perfect light.

One of the first families I was able to photograph in this beautiful summer grass was the Thomas’.

I think you’ll all agree from looking at the images they were the most beautiful family. Their mum had booked this family photo shoot because she knew she needed to be present in more family photos.

Her son had commented that he loved images of them at home and wanted to see more as It made him smile ( I know! Love him)

As with lots of my clients, we spoke at length on the phone before the family photo shoot. She had a good idea of the type of images she wanted to create, the photos she had planned to hang as a gallery in their home. Our 30-minute conversation was able to put her mind at rest and ensure we had the best plan in place to capture these all-important photos.

On the evening, dragging her reluctant husband along promising him it wouldn’t be as bad as he thought they arrived at the location in Southampton. Unfortunately, as with the usual British weather we didn’t have the best luck as the clouds descended on the summer grass field. We might not have been blessed with the beautiful golden sun that we all love. However, this did not stop us creating those all-important wall worthy images. When you have a beautiful family, who are dressed perfectly, and skilled enough to be able to direct them then you will always achieve stunning family photos.

I couldn’t pick a few so you can see the whole gallery of stunning photos here:
