Natural and Candid Family Photography on Brighton Beach
When Sophie contacted me about a Brighton family photography session I jumped at the chance! Not only do I love the beach but her story sounded so wonderful. She now lived in England with her partner but her family were based in Australia. They had all gathered for a holiday together in the UK and she thought that it was the perfect opportunity to get some pictures of them all together in the same place – and I couldn’t have agreed more. So often photography is focussed on capturing new life bought into the world, and rarely do we stop and capture your kids together – even if they have grown into very well functioning adults. Taking the time to appreciate and document your family is a wonderful thing.
Although I LOVE photography families with children, however it was really refreshing to shoot a family with no kids present. We walked around the arcade with no tantrums, no body had to have a chat about throwing stones in the sea instead of at people’s heads and as a BONUS we got to stop and have a coffee [because Australian’s understand the need for a GOOD FLAT WHITE] and we had a fantastic chat without being interrupted to watch any little people do anything. It was so lovely that Sophie and her family had travelled from different sides of the globe and that they all wanted to document their time together. They wanted to celebrate the fact that they were all in the same place for the first time in a long time and I was very glad to be the one there capturing it for them. I really hope that you enjoy looking through the photographs of Sophie and her family and who knows you may get inspired to do something similar!
Thank you for stopping by and looking through these photographs
If you are at all interested in having a family photography shoot with me please do drop me an email and if you would like to take a look at some more family Day In The Life photography shoots I have done why not take a look at a family shoot in Surrey that I photographed last year, or a little further afield in Essex where I photographed Bobby’s naming day.
