A RELAXED SUMMER AFTERNOON FAMILY SHOOT
Gorgeous Virginia Water Family Photography Shoot with the William’s Family
When Adrian emailed me about a Virginia Water family photography shoot, it was for a birthday present for his mother. It would be a shoot for her and their extended family. I always love it when families buy my Day In The Life shoots for their loved ones. Taking photographs and capturing memories is one of the best presents that you can give (in my opinion). Adrian suggested meeting at Virginia Water Lake for their family shoot. This made me very excited because I had never photographed there, but had always wanted to.
Virginia Water Family Photography
We all met on a sunny afternoon and got to know each other a little better. Walking through the dappled woods and gorgeous lake was wonderful. The children walked (some with help) along the pathways and we took time to feed the ducks. Hilariously we were witness to a dogs first swimming lesson when it bounded past us and straight into the water. It was determined to meet the swan who did not return the same sentiment!
The wonderful factor about having Virginia Water family photography is that there are so many wonderful places and backdrops. After feeding the ducks we went and had a little pic-nic style moment in the sun. The girls were happy to play around and have a giggle with their parents and grandparents. It was so lovely to see all the generations interacting.
There is always a time where we dedicate moments for some guided portraiture. This time is usually gauged by myself as to when children are at their most accessible. No one wants a set of photographs where parents look pained and kids look grumpy! Hopefully with all the smiling faces on this shoot you might agree that the timing was perfect and we had the best time too!
On this family shoot we barely scratched the surface of what the location offers. There are gardens, waterfalls and deer parks! If having a Virginia Water family photography shoot sounds like something that you would like to do please do contact me. It would be so wonderful to revisit this location with a family!
