family photography session | lifestyle photographer oxfordshire

December didn’t bring the snow and cold that we all long for at this time of year, however that didn’t stop the festive spirit of the Cooke Family. I was delighted to be invited to their newly renovated home, to capture a family that was going to enjoy their first Christmas together, in a home they’d built with all the love in the world.

Teddy was enjoying jam on toast as I walked in, and to the side was a pile of gingerbread men all waiting to be decorated. A messy, yet enjoyable moment as mum, dad and Teddy all sat around the kitchen table icing, sprinkling and eating their way through each biscuit. 

The house was filled with smiles as we made our way upstairs, moving from room to room capturing moments and memories. Teddy picking his favourite book and reading by the window, to tickling and cuddling on mum and dads bed. That’s the magic of photographing families in their own homes, you’re telling a story that is so personal, and precious, that it’s always beautiful.

Family photography sessions can take place anywhere, from the studio to your favourite place, and even from the comfort of your own home. It’s about the time spent, the memories made and the moments captured.

Getting to photograph a family, big or small, is something that I’m lucky enough to enjoy every week. And this week was no different. The Davin Family welcomed a lovely little bundle of joy to their already beautiful family, and of course wanted to capture a few special moments together. 

Josh and Tommy, 2 very proud big brothers, came bounding into the studio on a early Saturday morning with their matching blue jeans and white tshirts, all ready for their close up. Frankie, brand new, all tucked up and asleep in his car seat, unbeknown to his moment in the spotlight. Three handsome boys.

Naturally there was lots of running, jumping, hiding and smiling, but that’s the perfect combination for a family photography session. I loved capturing every minute, from balancing building blocks on mums head to unpacking a rucksack full of superheros who, as one would expect, saved the day

Capturing the everyday, as ordinary as that may sound, is something that I find beautiful. The natural smiles, the real emotions and the purity of each image holds so much more impact and meaning. And this beautiful family session captures this perfectly.

Ellis, 11 days new, and big sister Amalie, melted my heart. I could of photographed them all day. The little mischievous moments, the gentle kisses and the perfectly timed hand holding made every moment adorable, and a joy to capture. 

Prepared with cuddly toys, bubbles and biscuits, mum and dad had the bribery and corruption under control. Meaning all I needed to do was snap at every lovely moment, in between the mouthfuls of biscuit. But whats a few crumbs between family.
