This lovely young family approached me to take their family photographs in time for Christmas last year. ┬áThere are four young boys, all under the age of 10, the youngest, under 2 with a serious taste for adventure… it was tricky to capture him on camera.

Photos were taken in and around Hartlepool, in front of gorgeous painted wooden doors and by the quayside, by a local lake to feed the ducks and at the family’s home. ┬áThe boys dressed up in their schoolclothes for a couple of shots as alternative school photographs, a great idea!

Here’s a few fun snapshots from the photography shoot:
