Documentary Family Photography in Hampshire
The Otter Family
I was introduced to The Otter family by The Turner family who had a family session with me earlier this year (you can see the photos from their family session here). We didn’t get as much time to chat over the phone / skype as I normally would before a family photo session but they’d been referred to me by the Turners so I knew they’d be lovely too (which they are). They also completed the questionnaire I send out before I photograph a family (they help me get to know a family before I meet them and help them get an idea as to what to expect on the day) and some of their answers (particularly from the kids) made me laugh out loud.
I knew it was going to be a good day.

Family Photoshoot in Hampshire
I’m not sure if I’ve ever been offered breakfast* when I’ve arrived at a family photoshoot before (in fact, I’m certain I haven’t), so I have to admit I was a bit taken aback when the Otter’s laid a place for me at the table and insisted I had breakfast with them. That pretty much set the tone for the rest of the day – such a loving and generous family that made me feel so welcome and just felt good to be around. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to meet them and photograph them. A beautiful day…
*They made me stay for lunch too 🙂
“Will is an amazing photographer and it was such a brilliant experience having him visit us and do a documentary family life shoot on our farm. He captured some heartwarming moments that we will treasure forever. His write-up about his experience on the farm brought a tear to my eye. What lovely words they were – and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts Will. It’s not only your amazing photography that makes you so great, it’s your attention to detail and your take on life is refreshing, heartwarming and beautiful. Thank you for capturing such a brilliant portrayal of life on the farm. Love from The Blackburns. X”
“Will is so talented! The photos from our family photo shoot are absolutely perfect. He captured our family looking natural & relaxed, at home and on a trip to the park. The photos are the antithesis of a “white background” family photo shoot which is exactly what we wanted! Can’t recommend Will highly enough.”
I can’t recommend Will Bazlinton enough! Having seen Will’s portfolio I knew I was going to get great pictures but the finished product still managed to exceed my extremely high expectations. Not only do the pictures look beautiful but they capture our children’s personalities and really represent our family life! Will was so easy to work with, we all felt totally relaxed and the children were able to be completely natural which really shows in the pictures. I will definitely be using Will again and will treasure the photos forever.
