East Devon Family Shoot at Home

A lovely summer’s day and a visit to an East Devon family home.


One of my favourite things about my job is when I get to photograph families at different stages in their journey together. I’d photographed the Williams family five years previously and it was great to see how they’d grown as a family unit.


This time I went out to their home, a beautiful spot in East Devon. The huge advantage to this is that the children are completely at ease in familiar surroundings. Getting them to relax in front of a camera in a studio or unfamiliar environment, can often be a challenge. I always aim to capture lots of natural and candid images, so making the children comfortable is top priority. As soon as the kids relax, the parents do too and everything flows from there!


These guys are lucky to have lots of space around them, which gave me plenty of options to capture some nice images. We took a walk down to the swing, jumped on the trampoline, played football and ran around with water pistols! What better way to spend a summer’s afternoon?


I’ve picked out a selection of images from our shoot below.
