A Cannock Chase walk with the Smith family

Family photographer in Staffordshire

Cannock Chase in Staffordshire has always been a favourite place of mine to take a family for a relaxed photoshoot but I’d never jumped onto it via Milford Common before. As a family photographer in Staffordshire its great to know the places that get the best photos, and Cannock Chase always delivers! It has miles and miles of woodland and open spaces, with lots of hidden spots to get away from the dog walkers.. it’s just a perfect setting with different lighting for different situations.

The sunshine after the rain

After a Saturday of non stop rain the weather on the Sunday morning was perfect for us! it was all blue skies and bright summer sunshine! I’ve been on a bit of a lucky streak recently with all my family and couple shoots! uh oh.. I think I just jinxed myself there. We took a lovely walk around, firstly easing in with some natural walking shots and then some natural group shots where I always aim to get them to look and engage with each other rather than look at me too much. The results are always so much better! 

So many people come to me saying they really don’t like having their photo taken and feel awkward in front of the camera. I try to pride myself on trying to relax my couples and families and put them totally at ease, chatting, laughing, getting some super natural shots where they both look totally at ease and super happy.

As you can see below, Victoria, Jonathan and little Clara made my job so easy, they were thrilled with their photos!
