Tanya and her family are some of my most loyal and regular portrait clients. I love that Tanya values her family portraits and continually updates them as her family grows up. She contacted me for an outdoors family photosession in Suffolk, this autumn.
Tanya’s little girl Phoebe is a complete character, she absolutely idolises her big sister Hannah who in turn adores Phoebe. It’s just beautiful watching these two play together.
It turned out to be a really hot day still, but that didn’t stop Tanya from creating her vision of rich autumnal colours and clothing.
We went to the country park behind their home in Suffolk, it’s a spot they frequently visit as a family and to walk their dog Chase. He didn’t join us on this photo session, though he usually does make an appearance!
Phoebe is learning to share at the moment, so often offers you whatever she has in her hand – it’s really cute to see this interaction between her and her caring Mummy and Daddy. These are the moments that will become gorgeous memories and talking points as they grow as a family.
As Hannah and Phoebe went off to look at something amongst the long grasses, I was able to get a few moments with Tanya and Jon as they kept a watchful eye on their explorers.
I had intended on capturing the whole family – there’s Hannah, Phoebe and Logan – but as per usual Logan slept through most of the session (he did last time I met him!) so Phoebe and Hannah were the stars of the show, before Logan made a sleepy finale to the photo session.
I really love seeing this family, they change so much and grow so fast. Both Phoebe and Logan are learning all the time and growing into their own characters, while Hannah seems to grow more beautiful each time I see her too. Tanya and Jon have a gorgeous family and I can’t wait to see them again soon.
