Just One – Austin – family portrait photography in Surrey


Spring has definitely sprung in this beautiful portrait from my recent family photography session in Weybridge, Surrey. I love this time of year!

I was lucky enough to meet Nicola and David back in 2012 when we arranged a family photoshoot with their baby daughter Daisy at their home in East London. It was one of my favourite baby and family photo shoots ever and Daisy has frequently been used in some of my most popular advertisements, with her gorgeous smile a perfect showcase for the fun we have on family shoots. I was thrilled when Nicola contacted us to arrange a second family photography session, and even happier to hear the family had grown and little Austin would be joining us too.

Austin was just as cute as his sister and together they make a hilarious pair, who were so much fun to photograph. We had a wonderful day playing at home and then headed out to explore a nearby park, taking lots of lovely pictures as the children played and as we made a variety of delicious meals to feed the friendly giants. There’s never a dull moment on a family photo shoot!

Today I have chosen to show a picture of Austin on his own as my Just One preview image, as I fell in love with this image as soon as I saw it. We were heading to the woods to explore and found this incredible field of daffodils, all in perfect bloom. It was one of those wonderful settings that we photographers dream of, with lovely backlighting to really bring out the tones and textures.

It’s Austin’s expression that really captures me though, with his lovely smile as he looks up towards his parents as he’s so proud of his exploring through the flowers, almost as big as he is!

I’m thrilled with this picture and I hope you like it, too. If you would be interested in arranging a family shoot for your own family in Surrey, London or beyond, do contact us – we’d love to hear from you.
