A few weeks ago I photographed a large family generation session as part of their celebrations for a special birthday. They decided to buy the session as a birthday gift to capture some special memories to keep and cherish forever. I thought it was a lovely idea, what better gift to buy for someone you love?
We started off the session with a few formal (ish) shots on Bournemouth cliff top. I am not going to lie it did feel a little bit like it was a small wedding! I have had plenty of practice at wedding group shots but its not something I do anymore. I am sure you will agree the photographs look great.
We walked down the Zig Zag together and then had some fun on Bournemouth beach taking some more beautiful shots. I really enjoyed this session, and love how the photographs have turned out. It was such a lovely day, but not too sunny which meant we had the beach pretty much to ourselves!
Something I really loved about this session, was that it wasn't all about the kids. Sure, most of the photographs centre around them, as most family photography does. But I absolutely love that they made the point of having some couple photos, which is really important. When was the last time you had a professional photograph taken of you without the children?
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope they have inspired you to thinking about doing something like this in the near future, it is something I would really love to do aswell. I will leave you with my favourite shot from the whole session. Truly beautiful don't you agree?
