Lifestyle family photography in Cheshire – Dunham Massey
Back to Dunham Massey in Cheshire for this one. Claire and Chris are good friends with Katy & Chris, who asked me to photograph this gorgeous Lifestyle family photography session recently also at Dunham.
Classic Cheshire Countryside
Dunham Massey is one of my favourite places to photograph. It has everything you need. Acres and acres of stunning parkland, old rustic buildings and plenty of open shade for some much needed shelter from the recent bright sunlight we have had.
As usual we met up at the mansion house and started our walk around the parkland. There are three main paths to take, number three as I call it, is currently closed off to the public as Dunham’s herd of fallow deer have taken over. I’m not sure why but it doesn’t really matter as you have acres of land to use for the photos.
Cheshire Lifestyle photography backdrops
One of the old buildings which we used as a backdrop is the slaughter house, which is situated in the centre of the park. No signs of any grisly goings on nowadays though. We then headed back to the central path which leads to an old brick wall surrounding the park from the road. This wall makes a fantastic backdrop. The texture and the natural light which falls on it is a delight. Try recreating that in a photography studio, that’s the beauty of lifestyle family photography. Finally it was back down path number one and we ended up where we started. The little one in these photos was so relaxed he fell asleep nearing the end.
Here’s a a few photo from the day. If you would like a similar lifestyle family photography session of your own at Dunham Massey or any other location then why not get in touch to arrange a date? For more information and prices head over to the lifestyle prices page. I hope to see you soon.
