Summer Family Photos with The Oultons in Hindhead

Summer Family Photos with The Oultons in Hindhead

Jul 2, 2018 | At Home, Children, Family, Toddlers | 0 comments

Hey guys! How are you? If you’ve been following my work for a little while, you may well recognise the lovely people in this family. To anyone new here – welcome to The Oulton Family from Hindhead! I have been photographing this family around once a month since the birth of their first son Chester, and in June 2018 Chester turned four years old. Wow! Four years, I’ve only just realised that. Chester and I also share the same birthday, so we have a little connection there too. I have been lucky enough to watch them grow month by month and photograph their journey and life.

The Oulton’s have a beautiful home near Hindhead in Surrey, and on this day the whole family was around to celebrate Chester’s 4th birthday. We mostly photographed in their lovely back garden in some gorgeous (but HOT!) summer sunshine.

Below are just a selection from that photo session, and I love how much they have all changed from this time four years ago. The boys are so grown up now! Just look at them.

I’m a family photographer based in Farnham, but also cover lots of surrounding areas such as Guildford, Haslemere, Aldershot, Alton, Godalming and many more. If you are interested in booking a family photo session for yourself please feel free to drop me a message and we can get you booked in for your own beautiful photos.

I hope you are all well, and thank you so much for reading this blog and visiting my website. Feel free to have a look around. If you’d like to follow along, I invite you to follow me on my Instagram too!

It’s so super hot at the moment, keep cool and stay hydrated.

All the best,

Oscar’s 3rd Birthday Party – Family Photography in Ash Vale

Oscar’s 3rd Birthday Party – Family Photography in Ash Vale

This month I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph little Oscar to celebrate his 3rd birthday. It also introduced me to the place of Ash Vale photography, which was somewhere so close to me that I had just never explored before. So – yes to exploring new places!

During a full photo session, the time allocated is two hours. During these two hours you can (within reason) do anything that you would like – stay at home, visit the grandparents, go for a walk etc.etc. It’s completely up to you and what you want to get out of a photo session with me.

We started the photo session by spending the first hour having a family adventure through the woods, finding dandelions and beetles, and trying to stay away from those pesky stinging nettles. The walk was such a lovely way to get to know the lovely family I was photographing and also to explore some great woods that I’d never been to before. The weather was absolutely gloriously sunny so it was wonderful and refreshing.

After the walk, we went back to Oscar’s house where I spent the last hour or so documenting Oscar’s gorgeous little party with his friends and family. The cake, Peter Rabbit themed of course, was so stunning and the joy and happiness on everyone’s faces as they celebrated where full of love and pride.

Posted below are a small selection of the final images from the day – I’ve left out any images of the other children specifically just to respect their privacy. BUT here is a good old overview of our wonderful shoot in the sunshine in Ash Vale, with little Oscar and his family.

If you’re interested booking your own photos please send me a message here or see here for more information.

Dakota and Candy – Mummy & Me

Candy came to me wanting some pictures to remember life as it was just now – with the gorgeous little Dakota. We decided to do an intimate photo session at her home to capture those special little moments between mother and daughter in their natural habitat where they were both already comfortable and surrounded by the things they cherished.

Dakota has a love for the Lion King, and it just so happens that I do to. I love that Simba is making a little appearance here, it makes these images all the more special.

Thank you Candy and Dakota for making this session so special.

Leo in the Garden – Sunny Family Photography in Farnham, Surrey

Leo in the Garden – Sunny Family Photography in Farnham, Surrey

Back in the summer I had the pleasure of photographing Leo and his family in his back garden in Farnham, Surrey. The sun was so bright that day so we used it to our advantage to get beautiful lighting and sun flares.

Having family photos taken at home make the photos so much more unique to you and really gives you some beautiful memories of you in your own space. The children (and adults) are also so much more relaxed  and that really shines through in the photos.

For this photos we started off by going for a short walk around Waverley – seeing the abbey, splashing in some puddles. This allowed me to get to know Leo and his family a bit more before we settled down for the photos at home. As the sun was just so gorgeous, we decided to set up a blanket in the garden and let Leo have lots of fun – there where bricks, bubbles, food and Leo was enjoying all of it.

If you are interested in some family photos for yourself, please do feel free to contact me here and we can discuss wha it is you are after. There’s currently a Black Friday offer running over on my Facebook, so if you’re reading this in time, it might be worth going to check that out too.

Thank you all for your wonderful and continued support on my http://johnhykel.com/?p=473 Families Instagram, Facebook and this here watch blog. It really does mean a lot that you would help me out by sharing and commenting on these posts.

But for now I will leave you with the gallery of Leo’s photos:
