What goes up when rain comes down…

Family portraits at Iken in Suffolk by Tony Pick photography
Lifestyle portraits at Iken, Suffolk by Tony Pick photography

… my umbrella (sorry, bad joke!)

As I was sitting at my desk this morning, warm cup of coffee firmly in hand and glancing out of the window at the droplets on the glass, I couldn’t help but think of how lucky I am that the weather can actually aid my job rather than hinder it.

My last blog post was also about the conditions outside, but it’s evident to me that even shooting in the rain can be fun! I pride myself on creating memorable experiences for families when they have their portraits done, and sometimes the adverse weather conditions make the activity even better!

Whether it be snow or rain, the lighting that comes with this time of year and its weather creates the most beautiful photographs, and in Suffolk we have some of the most wonderful landscapes that make photography a dream!

The dramatic coastline at Dunwich or Thorpeness can be a brilliant locations for family portrait shoots, and even when it’s raining the images we capture with groups never cease to put a smile on our clients’ faces!

In the lead up to Christmas it can be hard to find the time (or motivation) to leave the house for anything, let alone a photoshoot with the extended family, but with me at Tony Pick Photography your images are guaranteed to brighten up any rainy day.

That being said, as much as I love using the Suffolk landscape to my advantage, sometimes there’s no better feeling than inviting someone into your home to photograph those special moments, which is why I am always open to clients’ location suggestions!

If you’re unsure of what someone may be comfortable with but want to gift them a special experience this Christmas, why not present them with one of our gift vouchers to really surprise them (you can find these using the link above in the menu bar).

I’ll be back next week with a new blog post on what I’ve been up to and what I’ve been thinking about, but for now, back to the grind(ing of the coffee beans)…

As it snow happens…

Family and children’s portraits in Suffolk with Tony Pick photography

I love the winter (really, I do).

What better time to be a photographer in Suffolk? The countryside in this part of the world is so beautiful, and in the colder months there’s nothing better than the sound of crisp leaves under your feet.

The image above is from a shoot taken a few years ago now, outside The Wentworth Hotel and I think it really epitomises just how much fun portraits can be (even in adverse weather conditions!)

It’s a shame that with Christmas fast approaching, and the quest for that all-important knock-out gift weighing on our minds that we often forget to take the time to stop and appreciate the natural world around us.

And, that’s what’s great about my job – the whole focus of it is capturing families in beautiful settings, producing images that highlight the season as well as the dynamic of the household I’m working with.

Being a portrait photographer (whether its children, adults or a mixture of the two), you’d think I’d be the one fed up of standing in the cold whilst I encourage the grumpy toddlers to run around in the leaves or along the rough shoreline at either Aldeburgh or Southwold – not at all! (most of them aren’t actually grumpy for a start – they love it!) Yet, being based in such a beautiful part of the world allows me the freedom to create wonderful family portraits with different people every day of the week.

In the run up to Christmas, and with the snow falling outside it can be easy to find lots of things to complain about. If anything, this time of year makes me stop and take in my surroundings and situation more than any other – I help people create the perfect Christmas gift for their loved ones, all the while allowing them a fun family day out!

This year, if you feel like you’re walking on thin ice and want to surprise someone with that extra special present, I snow full well that a family portrait package with me will cure all of those winter blues.
