Mary and her family got in touch a couple of months ago to organise a big family session for Mary’s 70th birthday present. The whole family was getting together for a birthday lunch at the Luton Hoo which was perfect as a setting for some family photographs.

As a grandmother, Mary wanted to make sure I got some photographs of her four grandchildren, all together and as individual portraits. While I was there I thought it would also be nice to capture each individual family units as well as some more casual and playful parent and child photographs.

The family photo session was a birthday present to Mary from her children and, as is often the case for big family shoots, they decided to go for the Complete Collection so that each family could enjoy receiving the whole set of images from the gallery.

Here is a small selection of images taken on the day, we were spoilt with lovely weather too!

“We have received the photos and we are very pleased with them – they are lovely. I have made some of the pictures into a photobook and it is a lovely memento of my birthday which was a fantastic day from start to finish!”
