Winchester family photographer
There is something about the peaceful surroundings of Winchester, Hampshire that make for a rested heart and peaceful mind. The tagline this year is Winchester. Vibrant, Ancient, Cultured.
I moved here for the buildings and the history and I have not been disappointed, in fact on the weekends I suspect that is the draw for a lot of the tourists that visit too.
As a Winchester Family Photographer, I love to use the buildings as the backgrounds to my portrait. Photographs are about creating memories, and where better to do that than a place since the Iron Age. You share the streets with those who have gone before you, and your history will live on in your photographic legacy.
On a sunny afternoon I was fortunate to collaborate with local resident Emma from Winchester Eats and her family for a photoshoot. We started off at the ‘Harry Potter’ house, near the Cathedral and Dome Alley and walked around to the top of the high street. As Emma’s youngest was feeling rather tired, this was a shorted session than usual. When doing family photoshoots I always need to take in to account the comfort levels of the children, if a child is tired or unhappy - no one is going to be enjoying themselves. Family photoshoots should not be a chore but should be an event that is fun in itself. One which the kids will remember fondly for years to come, a time when they got their parents full attention and just had fun for a few hours.
Shooting on location in a place like Winchester, adds some really great context to the photos. As you look over your childhood photographs, seeing familiar buildings will conjure up other memories of your childhood.
Where would you have your family photoshoot?
