Large family group portrait - Newquay, Cornwall

Family portrait at Fistral Beach

Three generations met up in Newquay to celebrate an 80th birthday. I was hired to shoot a few professional photos on the clifftop behind the Headland Hotel (where they were staying). We arranged to start the shoot after dinner (a plan I was very happy to go along with as I knew that if it was a fine evening we'd get a low sun backlighting the group with the sea and coastline as our backdrop). Everything went to plan; the weather behaved, the family were relaxed in front of the camera and the north conwall coast (as usual) looked awesome.
