Goodbye Autumn, Hello Winter – This is the last shoot I did at the end of Autumn, as we gear for the coming wet and cold winter months. This family portrait session was photographed at Little Moreton Hall (also known as Old Moreton Hall) in Congleton, Cheshire which is under the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty. Little Moreton Hall houses a beautiful Tudor Manor House which is easily 500 years old. I used the Knot Garden and the scenic lake area situated at the back of the Manor House as my backdrop for most of the shoot on the blog. Although it was cold, nearly 4 deg when I did the shoot, the kids were just fabulous and were eager to be photographed. I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and hope you enjoy viewing these images too.
If you looking to have some fun family portraits done, then have a look at a recent session I photographed in Staffordshire. The session lasted just about an hour and most of it was photographed in the family’s garden. The youngest child was about 6 years old while the oldest was 17 years old. The dynamics of photographing teenagers (or Seniors as they call them in America) is more fun as they don’t sit still and are full of energy and ideas.
When I started doing photography full time almost 10 years ago, I was photographing everything from weddings, food, corporate functions, parties to portraits. As the years went by and as I had my own family, I realised there is a different kind of satisfaction and joy photographing children and family portraits. Seeing the little ones grow so quickly over the years, I find it is important to capture their milestones as keepsake for the future or for grandparents. When I photograph children, I try to infuse some fun into the sessions and encourage them to showcase their personalities or their funny side. Hope you enjoy viewing these sneak peak images which I photographed for a family in Stoke-on-Trent.
Here are some recent outdoor family photos which I photographed in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. I am happy to photograph families in different locations such as parks or country clubs even more so if the place means something special to them. For families who prefer doing the shoot at home due to convenience or because they have young kids and want them in familiar surroundings, I am also open to that especially if they have a beautiful house or garden. Hope you enjoy viewing the sneak preview images and feel free to contact me for a quotation if you want something similar done for your family.
I recently had the opportunity to do a family portrait session at the Biddulph Grange Country Park in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.The Country Park was originally part of a larger Biddulph Grange Estate, its 73 acres wooded hillside site is a lovely place for families to go for a walk on its walking paths, fishing or picnic on a sunny day as it comprises of a large lake, streams, meadows and ponds. There are some ducks up at the pond, so if you are heading there, do bring some stale bread to feed them. You will also notice a beautiful stone boat house from 1904 which has been restored by the lake too. There is a visitor centre with café which is open at various times during the year and provides some information about events held within the park such as art exhibitions.
Let me share with you some photos I photographed of my good friends and their kids in Congleton, Cheshire. We did an outdoor family portrait session at their beautiful home, and how blessed we were that the weather was wonderful as well. Both their girls are 5 and 3 years old respectively and extremely photogenic. I had so much fun playing about with them in their garden while capturing these lovely images. Here are some sneak preview shots of their family portrait session, here’s little Megan to begin with.
After taking a break from photography for a couple of years to take care of my kids and to migrate to UK, I’ve decided to restart my photography business. Here are some images from a recent family portrait session photographed on a beautiful sunny day at Congleton Park in Cheshire.
Here are some family shots I took recently of Bava and Venkat with their two boys, three year old Roopesh and six month old Pravanash. We chose Bukit Jalil Park as a location to get some shots of the little ones at play and some casual shots of the family as they spent some quality time together. Do enjoy viewing these images.
Here are some portraits of Ameera photographed at her beautiful home at Taman Tun Dr Ismail on a lovely weekend with her father, Kevin and mother, Sarah. Ameera who is just four years old, is full of confidence and charisma with a contagious smile. Ameera was really excited to show me some ballet moves, her fun personality just shone through throughout. Hope you enjoy viewing some of these shots of Ameera and her family.
Here are some portrait shots of Suneha along with her mother, Mindy and grandma, Harjit which I took in Putrajaya. Before a shoot I discuss with the client about any particular theme, concept or ideas they would like included in the session. Sometimes clients have a specific pose that they want captured, such as the mother and daughter close-up shot that Mindy requested.
We were blessed with good weather for the shoot, not too sunny even though we started late in the morning that day. Suneha was quite the photogenic child, a little shy at first which is not unusual during a photo session, but she soon warmed up to me. Do enjoy viewing these photos and feel free to contact me if you would like your family portraits captured.
