As a family photographer in West Sussex, it’s always an honour to document those rare moments when everyone is together. Which is exactly why T reached out to me.

Her youngest is almost university age, and she had found it rare for all her children to be home at once. They are all busy taking on the world and doing incredible things. But my oh my, do they love their mum and dad – and vice versa.

This family is such a strong unit. A power family despite all the miles between them.

Family Photographer in West Sussex

T and her family used to live in the UK, but have since moved to the US. They had a chance to return to the place they were all born when a family friend invited them to their wedding.

A few weeks prior to their arrival, T had the great idea to book a family photographer. They were all staying at The Elizabethan Manor in Pulborough, which is a stunning country house available for holiday lettings. When T told me the gardens looked beautiful, she could have warned me! Because this place and her gorgeous family had me pinching myself.

It’s not often I’m greeted with gardens this beautiful!

Traditional and Candid Family Photography

T wanted primarily traditional family photography, but where everyone still looks like they are having fun and the session flows. So rather than a lot of posing and holding still, we created movement, memories and lots of laughter.

For this style, I give the family lots of things to do and say to each other. I asked T questions about her family and dynamics so that I could bring out authentic joy in their photographs.

With nearly 100 gorgeous photographs, I honestly wasn’t surprised T loved them all. Originally she just really wanted one good photograph of the family and possibly some smaller groupings ones (such as her with the boys), but in the end she wanted every single one!
