If you go down to the woods today, one thing is for sure: it won’t be boring.
While I do love making family photos at home, I think it is just as special to head out somewhere interesting for an adventure, particularly once kids get a little older, or if you know they are high energy, and love being in nature.
The great thing about heading out to a beach, or a forest, is that makes it so easy to avoid having to pose or be more formal, I can just focus on capturing your family in a really natural way, letting curiosity lead our exploration. That makes kids really happy and comfortable, which means happy and relaxed parents! I have lots of suggestions for gorgeous iconic (or quiet) locations like the one for this session below, if you are not sure where to go. You can even pack a picnic for afterwards, or head nearby to one of the beautiful eateries, pubs or wineries that pepper our VIctorian countryside. That way you make a day of it, and your photographs capture a memory of a shared adventure.
