Day in the Life Family Photography in Dorset
The Turner family were full of energy and fun (despite the sweltering heat – thanks for the ice cream, Kate!) which made them really easy to photograph. There was always something going on! The kids were happy, funny, engaged and got used to me really quickly. All in all, a really lovely day.
I’m constantly on the lookout for those moments when kids are doing ‘the things’ they do when they think no ones looking. Or they think they might be pushing their luck a bit but they’re not sure. There’s a few of these in here and they’re nearly always my favourite images… I can’t imagine why…
Check out the slideshow from their session below:
Natural family photography – real life, not ‘Lifestyle’
These sessions dispense with the sometimes stuffy formality of traditional studio-based family photography. There’s no need to get ready and there’s no pressure to ‘perform’. But, although I’m not directive, I’m not a completely detached observer either. I interact with families throughout our sessions rather than hovering awkwardly on the outskirts.
A documentary family photo session is a little different from what people commonly associate with family photography i.e. the family together, smartly dressed, in a studio environment or perhaps a park or beach – a selection of group and individual portraits, posed for the camera – passive.
So a Day in The Life family photography session is the antithesis of this, allowing the family to do what they want, when they want.
“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.
