The relentless rain and chill in the air that we've had of late makes remembering those lovely autumn days fairly tricky. However, let me take you back...
I'd been talking to this lovely family about taking their family photos for a while (I did a little newborn session when J was born), we had spoken about the type of photographs they wanted (natural, relaxed, capturing their personalities as they are), the type of location they were after (informal, local, space to run around) and what they wanted out of the session (canvas wall art for their living room). I was getting so excited, this is exactly the type of session I love. It's important we discuss your requirements before the session that way if I know you have a picture in mind for a certain spot in your home, we can work together to make sure you're happy!
We met in a local woodlands (to both of us, very handy - lovely to walk to work!) and took a stroll, took some pictures and had a lovely time! J is so keen on exploring, the woodland was perfect for him to have a look around with a relaxed mum and dad without worrying about leads and lighting that you may find in a studio. And A, well A, she's such a sweet girl and totally embraced the photo session! She was suggesting where she could stand and what photos I could take as well as making her little brother smile and stay where I wanted him, a perfect little assistant!
I know I've had a good day in the office when the viewing session is mainly spent narrowing down which photos are their favourite. I used my handy app on my ipad to show them how their photographs would look on their walls - their canvases arrived in time for Christmas and I was so pleased to be able to provide them with the images they wanted and which now hang proudly in their living room.
Here is a selection from their gallery
I'm sure it won't be long until the weather changes, then will we have snow? Who knows, that would be fun for a photoshoot. Either way, Spring will come and with it an abundance of colours and new backdrops for us to play with. If you'd like to book a child or family portrait session or have any questions, please do get in touch, I'd love to chat to you!
