Well, shooting family portraits in a wood is never boring! The boys looked excited, the parents less so! Luckily this is an unusual encounter and we all escaped unscathed with these fantastic photos!
I adore this family, 10 years ago we first met at my studio, full of expectation and hope, celebrating the impending arrival of their first born with some unique pregnancy portraits. We have met many times over the years on farms, in fields as well as studios and now a prettty woods – all for photo shoots!
Each time as their family grows and matures, their children’s boundless ‘tigger style’ enthusiasm for life is a truly wonderful thing to celebrate within these images.
They LOVED having their photograph taken, jumping, running and skipping their way around the woods, peeping around trees, tickling each other and generally having a ball at my ideas for photos! Each sibling, looking out for the other, trying to make each other giggle, holding hands or picking each other up! I find children of this age prefer to be set free from a studio environment and as long as the weather is not a howling gale, outdoor photos are a wonderful way to capture their characters and allow them to express themselves more naturally – just the way parents prefer.
With glorious sunshine in beautiful wood- land we whizzed through a delightful array of races and jumping competitions, culminating in an array of natural, fun family portraits and the knowledge that we escaped from the army just in time – phew!
If you would like an outdoor shoot with your family, there are a few places left on our lavender farm mini-shoots this weekend (26th and 27th June) for more details and to book – please either call me: 07976 302937 or click here.
