This was a lovely family photoshoot in Portsmouth. It was a family who lived in Tunbridge Wells but the Mum has parents down in Portsmouth. This can work well for some families – we can have some time with Grandparents as well as Mum and Dad. As with everything – there is no such thing as a free lunch, it can be that with a larger group (especially with young babies or children) we might not be able to run through each and every permutation with happy children, so I tend to suggest we have a plan beforehand about how long and when in the shoot we may want to have time with just Grandparents / parents.
This shoot was on a bit of a murky day – which can be great for colours and good for portraiture as the light is more flattering.
