I remember preparing myself for this family shoot and wondering how I will photograph three energetic children plus their parents. Will the kids be shy? Will they act naturally and let me capture them just being themselves? I guess this is a photographer's common worry before any shoot - will I be able to deliver the candid and natural photos that I am asked to deliver?

Turned out, I didn't have to worry at all. This family of five was very friendly and they were just themselves. Me arriving with the camera didn't interrupt anything: the boys were playing cricket and football, the little girl was running around the garden, and the parents were enjoying getting involved in the games and savouring the quality family time.

I left their house thinking documentary family photography was my favourite type of photography and I was so happy and humbled that I got to document this wonderful Sunday for this gorgeous family.

Cannot rate Alina highly enough! She was extremely friendly and discreet allowing us to be our natural selves without feeling the need to play up to the camera. The outcome was fantastic.... our pictures are natural and I could not be more pleased!
