by family portrait photographer, Mark Cox Photography

There are so many places on the Quantocks for family portrait photography.  I want to share with you a photoshoot that was done pre lockdown in one of these locations.  When a family books a photo shoot I always ask them where their favourite places to go are.  I find being in a place they enjoying visiting helps them to relax.  As a result allows me to get more natural photographs.

Each family photo shoot lasts between 60 to 90 minutes.  Whilst no two sessions are the same, I will ensure I take some groups shots at start when the children are still engaged.  After that I let the session and our time together run naturally with very little direction for me.  This could mean, letting the children play in the woods or on the beach.  Above all, I let them get involved in their own games to take their mind of the fact they are being photographed.

After getting some photographs of individual members of the family, as above, I will make sure I get the parents involved and interacting with the children.

As a parent myself, I know how many shots I have of one of us with our son.  However, I don’t have many shots of just the two of us together. Therefore, whilst the children are playing, I will always try to get a shot of mum and dad together.
