Last weekend I drove to Kent and spent the weekend with my great friends. In between catching up over dinner and watching the kids playing in the garden, we had time to fit in a family photo session. The aim of the shoot was to capture a relaxed group shot of the whole family as a surprise for their parents 40th anniversary in June. The location was a stunning bluebell field literally across the road from where they live. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting – but the weather had other ideas!

As soon as we set out the dark clouds started to roll in, but I remained hopeful seeing clear blue skies in the distance. We started shooting, but within 10 minutes the heavens opened and we were hit by a huge hail storm!! Luckily it passed over quickly, but by this point the kids were freezing cold and not loving my camera. Nevermind…these things happen with kids, and the weather – well thats out of my control!

We decided to head back to the house, and I finally managed to snag the all important group photo once the kids had warmed up : )

Matilda’s mum loved Eva’s storyboard so much, that I designed one for them. These look great printed onto a large canvas and I love the fresh spring colours in this one…

Plant Family Session

October 28, 2009

I had a great time with this lovely family. We played in the woods, crunched the golden leaves under our feet & made huge leaf piles for Lydia to play in. It was a joy to capture these family memories on such a relaxed shoot. No fuss, just a walk in the woods on an autumn afternoon. Stacey and Daniel looked great in their brightly coloured clothes, and this really made a bold statement and showed off their personalities to a tee. So if you are thinking of having a family portrait, remember…don’t be scared of colour – it works!!

Stacey, Daniel & Lydia – Thank you for a lovely afternoon, I hope you enjoy looking back at these memories…
