Kerry is a wedding photographer based in the UK and I was delighted when she got in touch to say she was looking for a film based photographer to take some relaxed, fun family photos on the beach whilst on holiday in Cornwall.
With husband Nathan and their two wonderful children Oscar and Pixie as well as their lovely little dog Otis, we had a very relaxed and fun hour playing on the beach and allowing them to enjoy some quality family time together whilst all being captured naturally on gorgeous film.
It’s so important to me when photographing a family session like this to let the kids be themselves, let them have fun and allow the parents to enjoy this too. I really strive to capture personalities.
I am usually a wedding photographer but having had some experience of previous family sessions and having worked with children when I was younger, it was lovely to be able to create some photos like these. I am hooked and will be doing more for sure!
I love to capture family photos because I just love working with people. Many years ago I thought I may become an elementary school teacher but I decided against that. With photography, be it a family session or at a wedding, I get to have fun with children again at their level, playing and being themselves and combining that with my passion for photography and creating very special and precious moments for families that will be treasured is such a great deal of fun as well as an honour!
