Stockport Family PhotographyStockport Family Photography

I was Nicola and Lee’s wedding photographer, way back in 2013. They now have a new addition to the family, 9 month old Alannah, so I was delighted when they asked me to join them at Lyme Park for their Stockport family photography session.

Family photography without the cheesy poses

After meeting up in the car park, we headed up the hill to the mansion. If you get there early enough, the courtyard is deserted and we get the place to ourselves. After a few shots, it was time to set off to The Cage. It’s not a cage as such but quite a large stone building. It has the most fantastic views over the Cheshire Plains, Manchester and Derbyshire. It’s windy up there though but this family are a hardy bunch and even little Alannah didn’t want her woolly hat or coat on. Then we headed back down to the lake, where Alannah was fascinated by the ducks.

Lifestyle photographer in Cheshire

The term lifestyle photography is starting to catch on now. It just means capturing a portrait of a person or group of people in real life situations with an arty twist. Everybody who books me for this type of session tells me they don’t like the typical studio session with a white background and posing for the camera. If the great outdoors is your thing, then what better way to tell your story than having your picture taken with moody skies as the backdrop.

Would you a Lyme Park photoshoot in Cheshire?

I can’t wait to head back to Lyme for another lifestyle photography session. If you’d like to be the next family I photograph, why not get in touch to check availability. Don’t worry about the weather as Autumn makes for some fantastic photos. With the sun low in the sky now and the rich warm colours, it really is a special time.
