I really enjoyed capturing this family with their now 2 children for a lovely family photography session in in the autumn sun. Little Flori is a very happy and cheeky 18-month-old toddler. And Belle – is a wonderful big sister, full of curiosity and joy.
First we played at their beautiful home. Louise and Leon have a fantastic sense of style which is apparent in every room. Afterwards we wandered out to the local Parkland Walk in the wonderful autumn sun. We looked for fairies at the magical tree (that’s what I call it anyway) and stomped through the colourful leaves. It’s absolutely joyful following children with my photography, trying to capture their view of the world.
It was a wonderful autumnal family photography session. The girls actually cried when it was time to say goodbye, and I take that as a compliment. Thank you Louise and Leon for inviting me into your home – it was an absolute privilege.
My approach is to interact with the kids like a family friend, rather than a photographer shouting instructions. After all, the main priority is happy kids – we’ll play and have fun and this is what comes across in my images.
