Last week took me into the pennies to see Faye, James and Jack. I arrived in the middle of peak nap time for Jack,so we decided not rush to setting up and let Jack enjoy a well deserved rest.
After a little while, everyone was ready for me to start snapping – the plan for the day was to take some shots in the house and then (weather permitting), we would go for a walk to the park for some more casual family pics. With the rain pouring we cracked on with the inside shots. Jack was on great form and after a long trip home from their holidays he certainly didn’t show any signs of tiredness as he played with his tractors. James’ tip on how to get Jack to laugh worked a treat – imagine me laid flat on the floor pointing the camera at James, Faye and Jack all the while pretending to have a sneezing fit. This was good enough to capture them all at their best and we got some great shots.
The weather did pick up after a while and we managed a trip to the local park by the river. Faye had asked for some really natural shots beforehand and this was a good chance for me to step back and photograph while they all relaxed together. It was a fantastic afternoon and I was pleased to get some natural shots in the sun and even a few down by the river!
In the next month I have some engagement shoots coming up and some weddings in the Autumn. For more of my latest work see my blog
