The best location to take family photos

I get asked this a lot when clients are booking family sessions with me.

Where do you suggest we shoot? or Do you have favourite locations?

and the answer is....... of course, all photographers do.

However my aim with family photos is to capture your family as authentically as possible and location really boils down to your preference and how you want the images to look at the end. I always ask clients if they have somewhere they want to shoot before suggesting options. I like to use a variety of locations, from in home to the local park.

I am constantly on the look out for different and interesting places to take photos. One of my favourite locations was actually a suggestion from a client and I had no idea this little gem was literally 5 mins from my front door.
