Wonderful window light {family photo shoot in Reigate}

This shoot was a great reminder to me of just how wonderful window light is. If families have children over the age of 2 I usually suggest doing the shoot out on location so the children can run around to their hearts content. Any regular readers of my blog will know that I am passionate about shooting outdoors and using nature and the changing seasons as a beautiful backdrop to your family photos. However this shoot with these two lovely sisters made me remember how great it is to photograph children in their own homes using natural light.

I use natural light 99.9% of the time in my sessions as personally I’m not keen on look of flash photography. Also, I love capturing children as they really are and generally I don’t think using flash results in the most natural expressions. Anyway, who needs flash when you have beautiful window light to work with! 


I had such a good time with these gorgeous girls and they had me in stitches for most of the session! We also took some family photos out in their lovely garden. 

The girls just have the most infectious smiles don’t they?


I have an exciting few weeks ahead…..I have my last workshop of the year on Saturday, Photography for Parents, and then my Autumn mini sessions are taking place next Saturday (fingers crossed we get another heatwave for them!) Then next week I will be announcing an exciting headshot offer for Jan & Feb so keep your eyes peeled!
