When Emily booked me to photograph their family, she said that above everything else, she wanted to capture their family as it actually is - "a memory of how we are today: happy, grumpy, sad, excited, loving". The session was all about letting their family spend time together in the way that they normally do, and me photographing all of that for them. Which is exactly what we did - stomping through the forest, exploring the terrain, searching for the Gruffalo and firing imaginary arrows through the trees... with lots of smiles, a few tears and a little grumpiness, an injured hand and a get-better kiss from Mummy, some tired, cold shivers, a nice warm hot chocolate and lots and lots of laughter and cuddles! These images together create a really wonderful portrait of their family and I loved the opportunity to capture it for them. Special memories of these precious times, before little legs grow taller, tears no longer need wiping away and hand holding is stoutly refused!! Here are a few images from their session...
