Last month I arranged to meet a lovely family near my home for a family photoshoot. It had rained in the morning and I was worried we would have to cancel the shoot however, it cleared up and by lunch time it was perfect light conditions. Mark & Tizzy’s children are a little old than most of the families I photograph so I was excited by the challenge of capturing young teens. We met at the pub and headed off on a walk passing a gorgeous pond with beautiful weeping willows and then into an old orchard and into a lovely field. The children were absolute stars and overcame their initial shyness quickly as we laughed our way around the field stopping to capture some fun along the way. Everyone had a wonderful afternoon and I was so please that I managed to capture this gorgeous family in such great light. I had a call from Tizzy the day she received the images to say that she loved them so much they reduced her to tears and for me that it why I love this job so much – it is about being able to capture those one off moments and freeze them in time so that you have some really lovely images to cherish for many years to come…….
