Natural family photos: exploring the woodland

Emily booked me to photograph some natural family photos for them. 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 naturally, and me photographing all of that for them.

So this is exactly what we did! Stomping through the forest, searching for the Gruffalo and firing imaginary arrows through the trees… There were lots of smiles, a few tears and a little grumpiness, an injured hand and a get-better kiss from Mummy. Plus some tired, cold shivers, a nice warm hot chocolate and lots and lots of laughter and cuddles!

These natural family photos together create a really wonderful portrait of their family. 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…
