Hybadore Coach House Fowey

There are some family photography shoots that just have it all. Great location. Great family dynamic. Great light. This was one of those.

The Pearsalls asked me to photograph a rare coming-together of their three generations in the enchanting & secluded Hybadore Coach House near Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall.

Normally I suggest mornings for family portraiture – while everyone is fresh, clean and the family arguments haven’t yet kicked in. So this was unusual for me to shoot in the late afternoon – but the reward was, of course, that lovely golden late summer sun. It was the zenith of 2018’s summer, racing around that hazy apple orchard in wheelbarrows.
