Moodboard: August Family

Posted on August 31, 2017 by Elsa under Coffee Break, Inspiration

August is the perfect time to schedule a family photo shoot. The weather is gorgeous, the days are long and the sun is shining. 

In our opinion, there is nothing better than capturing those precious moments of children running wild before it’s time to go back to school. It’s a special time of the year with beautiful, golden natural light and lush greenery. 

You could suggest that the family get outside to a local park or rural area for some beautiful portraits that completely embody the great British summer. Perhaps you have a favourite book or film that could be recreated? “Peter Pan with the lost boys”, “Famous Five” or even “We’re All Going On A Bear Hunt?” 

Alternatively, if you live near the coast then you could capture some really stunning summertime portraits. Perhaps building sand castles, paddling in the sea, playing tag with siblings (or a pet) or just having sandy cuddles?
