This family photoshoot has taken place near Old Leigh in Leigh on Sea by one of the bridges which crosses the railway. What a location! The architecture is just stunning and I must admit it’s never occured to me to shoot there!

Normally when I don’t know the location very well (from composition perspective), I arrive a bit earlier just to see what is around and if I can find some interesting backdrops and think through how I want to frame the images.

It’s lovely when you click with your clients and think the same, the session goes with such ease and has a lovely flow. I think we were done in about half an hour so that was perfect for small baby and inquisitive toddler! 

The family are yet to see the photos so hope this is a lovely preview for them 🙂 As always any feedback/comments welcome.
