Being a wedding and lifestyle photographer is fantastic. It’s such a fun job and one of our favourite things to do is to capture happy families, having fun together. Over the summer we visited Fliss, Michael and baby Archie at their beautiful home in Norwich to do just that.
It can be a touch choice choosing a location for your family photos as Norfolk has so much to over in terms of gorgeous countryside, picturesque beaches and quaint towns. For the Bailey’s though, it was easy. They wanted a natural, relaxed, candid shoot at their home which they recently renovated and extended. Taking pictures of these guys was a total pleasure. Archie is a super cute, super energetic little dude who loves spending lots of time with his fun, smiley parents. Rex the cat also wanted to get in on the action as you can see from some of the photos below. Rather than gently shooing him away, we all decided to go with it, even if Rex did photobomb a few of the photos, he is part of the family after all!
We started off chatting in the living room where we took some unplanned pictures of Archie hanging out with his dad while Fliss made some cups of tea. It was lovely to see the boys play together, dads are often out at work while mum is on maternity leave, so it’s special to have some boys only pictures in the family photo album!
As it was a brilliantly sunny day with clear blue skies, we all headed out into the back garden, armed with a blanket and followed by rex the cat and had a really lovely time just talking and playing in the sunshine.
It was hard to narrow down our favourite images from the Bailey’s family photo shoot, so here’s a good selection for you to peruse.
Lifestyle shoots start from £125 for locations within Norfolk but we are happy to travel further afield. If you would like to discuss us taking some photos of your family, friends or special occasion, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
