Birthday Party Family Portraits Hempstead House
70th Birthday Party family portraits at Hempstead House Bapchild Kent.
Birthdays are always special, and one of the most memorable days in our life. Recently, Cherie, one of my oldest friend, came to me to cover the 70th birthday of her mother, Carole. I also shot Cherie’s daughter Kerry’s wedding at Cooling Castle back in the summer of 2012. It was such a beautiful wedding and such a joyous day. The birthday photoshoot was a surprise and I was excited to get to meet Cherie’s mother. Cherie and her family had planned a fantastic party for Carole at the Hempstead House. birthday party family portraits
The birthday celebration was a close and intimate affair with Carole’s family members who had travelled from far and wide to be there. 5 Generations of family was present at the event. The total number of family members was 21 and they all enjoyed the occasion equally. The celebration included a Sunday lunch with specially prepared meals in the Oakly room at Hempstead House country house hotel and spa situated at Bapchild, Kent. You could feel that it was a great party with such a lovely friendly atmosphere that every one of all ages had a really good time. It really warms your heart to see a family coming together to celebrate a common cause and enjoying themselves. birthday party family portraits
The party was hosted at the lovely Hempstead House Hotel and Spa with lots of reception rooms, each with a specific name. We arranged for a photo session at the aptly named Snug room. None of the 21 family members were camera shy and readily followed my direction during the whole session. I decided to take some individual photos of the birthday girl and then shot some pictures of the family all grouped together. After that, we moved outdoors and I shot the complete family portrait in the adjacent landscaped garden. Both the younger and older generations converged side by side to make a stunning portrait – it was great to capture. birthday party family portraits
All in all the birthday was a huge success and I would like to take this opportunity to wish Carole a very happy 70th and thank Cherie for booking me and allowing me to be a part of your celebrations. I am glad you liked the photos.
