Maudslay Park Family Portrait Photography



Multigenerational family photo portrait sessions are a great opportunity for children, parents, and grandparents alike to bond over a shared activity and come away with a lasting visual heirloom for all ages to enjoy. During the portrait session, the kids can run free and engage with the outdoors, while the older generations can take part in posing with their grandchildren here and there without the little ones tiring from a more rigid formal activity.

As with all sessions, I encourage variety by having the subjects pose both individually and in different combinations with each other. There’s a lot of freestyle play and interaction, along with the more traditional “look at the camera” posing. With the weather starting to warm, this is the perfect time to get outdoors and schedule a session of your own. Please feel free to reach out to book a session with you and your loved ones!

One of my favorite types of portraiture is lifestyle portraiture. Compared to the formal sitting portrait with the majority of images capturing the subject in a fixed position looking at the camera, lifestyle portraiture is more subtle and unobtrusive, with the photographer shadowing a subject in motion to document their activity rather than directing them into specific poses. This style works especially well with the young kiddos, who aren’t going to sit still for long regardless, and you’re better off letting them do their thing and earn their trust to participate in their space with your camera. Even with lifestyle portraiture, there’s still plenty of opportunity to grab those more formal portraits as well, but because lifestyle portraiture is “on the go”, the technique relies more on natural light than complex studio illumination.

This lifestyle photography session was a fun hybrid, documenting family vacation time at a beach Airbnb cottage, but also covered family portraiture and maternity portraiture as well. We spent an hour or so together — plenty of time for a great set — and I appreciate the family inviting me to share in their adventure!
