Family photoshoot in Dog Wood, Tatton Park, we got to have fun in the Autumn leaves and little doggy Oscar joined us on the shoot to make sure we got the whole family!
I get to do lots of family photography, but quite often Mummy and Daddy don’t want to be involved, I was over the moon to get a family photoshoot where they wanted full family photos for Christmas presents for family. Not just the kids but the whole family :).
Tatton Park Photoshoot
Being based in Knutsford, Tatton Park is one of our favourite places to do a Knutsford family photoshoot, there are plenty of locations such as the gardens, the lake and more recently dog wood, combining a family photoshoot with a leisurely family walk Tatton park is ideal.
I like to try and step back from a family letting them relax and be natural on a walk then when I see an opportunity for a shot I call them over and get them in place. I find this works well as no one wants to just pose all the time for an hour and both parents and kids look much more relaxed in the ad hoc shots and I get to capture snippets of their relationship not just the perfectly posed shots.
For this shoot I was very lucky to get the whole family on board, quite often it is difficult to get Mum’s and Dad’s involved, they just want to focus on the kids but I can guarantee in a few years time the kids will want to see the photos of Mum and Dad having fun with them.
This family didn’t have many request, they just wanted a few group shots and the rest they trusted me with, this meant I got to play around with the kids and get shots of them all having fun.
Take a look at some of the shots from this shoot.
