Family Photoshoot - Hucknall, Nottingham

Family Photoshoot - Hucknall, Nottingham

I had such a great time during this family photoshoot in Hucknall, Nottingham with the Hirst family. Cate won a free family photoshoot with me through my Facebook page, after we chatted on the phone I just knew I had to photograph her fantastic family.

Family Photo Albums

We all know that wedding albums are important to treasure, but what about family albums?

You invest in a wedding album because it’s a special once in a lifetime event (hopefully) which you'll want to remember forever and pass onto future generations. So why is it worth having albums for family photos, it’s not a one off special event? 

Day in the Life - Wollaton Park

Day in the Life - Wollaton Park

It was a wonderful weekend to be out in Wollaton Park, Nottingham with the family taking photos. 

We didn’t get off to the best of starts though, when we arrived we realised we didn’t have any change for parking. Not to worry I thought as we passed card ticket machines and an ice cream van, change wouldn’t be a problem, or so I thought.

Unposed Family Photography

Unposed Family Photography

Documentary family photography is all about capturing everyday life in a natural unposed way. There aren't many photographers in Nottingham that photograph families in this way, most have families in front of a white background and ask them to pose in a way that is anything but natural.

Day in the Life Moments - Rice Crispy Cakes

Day in the Life Moments - Rice Crispy Cakes

Bank holidays are for spending quality time with friends and family, so I just had to document what we got up to. We kicked off our quality family time together by making chocolate rice crispy cakes, with a special ingredient, marshmallows, yum yum!

The night before Claire mentioned to the kids that we could bake some cakes tomorrow if they'd liked, which they were very keen to do. Offered with a variety of cake choices they landed on chocolate rice crispy cakes, which was a result as we already had all the ingredients in the house, so no trip to the shop required 😌
