Hello, I’m Marta Szulc, your friend and guide in the enchanting world of outdoor family photoshoot. There’s something magical about capturing the everyday moments that, years later, become a treasure trove of beautiful memories. Today, let’s delve into how these ordinary moments can transform into extraordinary memories through the lens of a family photoshoot.

Outdoor family photoshoots are more than just opportunities to wear matching outfits and smile at the camera. They are adventures in stunning locations, from the lush greens of country parks in the East Midlands to the comfort of your cosy backyard. These sessions capture the beautiful dynamic of your family, reflecting each unique personality and the special bond you share.

Imagine your family, not just posed, but playing, laughing, and maybe even getting a bit muddy. These are the beautiful images that tell your family’s story, ones that you’ll return to year after year.

To make the most of our time together, choosing the perfect location and time is crucial. Whether it’s the golden hour of early morning in a stunning park or a late afternoon by a gentle stream, I’m here to find the best settings that will make your family feel comfortable and excited. Remember, the best photos often come from kids simply being kids!

Choosing the Perfect Location for Your Family's Adventure

Deciding on the location is all about finding a place that resonates with your family’s spirit. Are you an adventurer at heart, or do you prefer something more laid-back? Perhaps a playful session at a nearby creek where the kids can splash around, or a quiet woodland area where your family can explore the natural surroundings. It’s about creating amazing memories in stunning locations.

The Best Time for outdoor family photoshoot

Timing can make all the difference. For outdoor sessions, we aim for the soft, diffused light of early morning or late afternoon. This beautiful light not only enhances the natural beauty of the setting but also complements the natural photos we aim to capture. For families with little ones, we’ll coordinate around nap times to ensure everyone is happy and energetic.

Capturing the Heart of Your Family: What to Expect

A family photoshoot with me isn’t just a session; it’s a heartwarming experience. Whether it’s capturing tender moments with your newborn during a maternity photography session or the entire family laughing under a tree, each photograph aims to tell part of your beautiful family story.

Before the session, I love to chat and really get to know what makes your family tick. This isn’t just about snapping pictures—it’s about creating a space where you can truly be yourselves.

3 Tips for a Memorable Family Photo Session

1. Just Have Fun!

Let go of any stress about outfits or poses. What truly matters is the joy and connection you share. Whether it’s tickling games or a quiet cuddle, these candid moments often make for the most heartfelt images.

2. Follow Your Child’s Lead

After getting those key shots, let’s let the kids lead the way. Whether it’s exploring, playing, or just being silly, these spontaneous moments capture the essence of your family’s spirit and create the most natural and engaging photos.

3. What to Wear? Keep It Simple

Coordinate without matching too exactly. Think of complementary colours and simple patterns. Comfort is key, especially shoes, as we’ll be moving around exploring and capturing your family adventure.
