Summer family photo shoot

I haven’t blogged one of my sessions in a while, so I though I’d show you all an outdoor family photo shoot that I absolutely loved.  This family was one of my favourite sessions of the summer!  The Mum discovered my work through Facebook.  We were part of the same Cambridge parenting group.  She contacted me to book an outdoor family photo shoot with a summer feel to it.  We agreed on a late afternoon session starting at 6.30pm so make the most of the beautiful warm ‘golden hour’ light at the end of the day.

Outdoor family photo shoot

I found a gorgeous location in East Cambridgeshire, right by the river.  There were open fields, shaded paths and woodland.  We were lucky to have the most beautiful warm summer evening for the session.  As we walked through the woods, the children made dens from sticks.  Everybody laughed and joked, played games, ran races and had lots of fun.  At the end of session, the children even paddled in the river, looking at the fish!

Capturing real smiles

I loved capturing the wonderful bond and relationships within this family.  Just look at those genuine smiles!  The children played so well together and everybody had such fun during the session – including me!
