A Hot Easter Weekend | Natural Outdoor Family Photography | Bath, Somerset
I met a gorgeous fellow Mum of a toddler the same age as my little boy at a playgroup a few weeks back. We got chatting and I told her I was a photographer and she said ‘no way! I’ve been looking for a local family photographer to photograph us!’ Sometimes the stars align.
We had our family shoot outdoors in the Bathampton Woods in Somerset over the Easter weekend and it was boiling hot! Unusually hot for that time of year and after lots of running and jumping around and blowing bubbles, we all got very hot and sweaty.
We meandered down to the wood and it provided us with some shade from the sun. It also created beautiful dappled light through the trees which made for beautiful images in amongst the tress and moss and bluebells. It felt like we were in Rivendell from Lord of the Rings, I was waiting for Liv Tyler to gallop through the trees on a white horse. This was such a beautiful setting for a natural family photoshoot and could be a wonderful location any time of the year.
Their daughter is only 2 but walked so far! She loved blowing the bubbles with her parents and picking up sticks and leaves. Its so heart-warming and heart wrenching at the same time seeing how inquisitive these little people are about the simplest and smallest of things. We seem to lose our curiosity and wonder for the world as we become adults.
Walking through the trees it became clear to me the incredible bond between these three and how much these images mean to them. I am always so flattered that someone likes me work enough to want to book a photo session with me, but even more thrilled when they love the images they get from it!
“We are utterly thrilled with these!! I knew you'd do a wonderful job! It was so impossible to choose!! Thank you so much for all your work, your style really is beautiful and it was a real joy looking through these. We have already printed and framed a lot of the photos. They are all over the house and we love them! Thank you so much!! “
