Christmas Surrey Family Photography Shoot

 

Having this Danish family photography at home was very special. It was before Britain’s third lockdown and was with one of my favourite Danish families (apart from my own)! Being predominantly a Surrey family photographer, I get to visit lots of lovely people at their homes for family shoots. If you are no stranger to this blog then you would have no doubt seen these beautiful faces before.  As a Surrey wedding photographer I was lucky enough to photograph Frederikke and Thomas’s breathtaking wedding, with their laid back garden reception at the family home.

Keeping in contact with families after their weddings is such a privilege. There is a special connection, especially if you share the same Danish heritage and traditions. Then a year or so later, I had the pleasure of capturing Frederikke and baby Valdemar on a mother and baby photoshoot at home.  There was a part of me that thought it would be a while before meeting up with Frederikke and her family again. With the family moving to Denmark and then Covid-19 shaking the world, I was unsure of the future. However, as luck would have it I was contacted for some socially distanced family photography just before Christmas. The family was living together in the family home and Frederikke, Thomas and baby Valdemar were to stay up until the new year until work resumed.

It may not be well known but the Danes are passionate about Christmas. So when Frederikke suggested to have the shoot around Christmas I was extremely excited.  With a big beautiful garden and airy light conservatory – it was a perfect place to have safe family photography at home. I have previously written about how all my Surrey family photography shoots are performed and organised to the highest Covid safety standards. You can read here about how to have Covid safe family photography.

 

Fun, Candid and Relaxed Socially Distanced Family Photography at Home

 

It was so wonderful to meet and catch up with this family again. It was even more amazing to see how much little Valdemar had grown since we last saw each other. As I arrived he was (in an extremely Scandinavian way) snuggled asleep in his buggy outside.  Which meant we were able to capture some outdoor family portraits and individual couples shots as well. Once little Val had awoken, he was wary of me and quite rightly so. This is why I leave a two hour family shoot time minimum because you can never tell what mood children will be in. Stress about time is not something parents should worry about as well as children’s temperament on a shoot.  We ran around the garden, took some spontaneous and candid images. We even fitted in a little of Valdemar’s (and one of mine) favourite film – The Sound of Music.
