It's hard to believe it, but this session happened on one of those crazy days when it's sunny one minute and rains straight after. We had to take cover under some trees and the umbrella wasn't just a prop but a necessity!
I love looking back at the happy sunny summer photographs, it's cold and dark outside now in December, but spring will come and it's a good time to start planning session with your own family now...
Even though this holiday is not celebrated in UK, I think we all can take at least one day to pause and to think about all the things we are grateful for in our lives! I also have a lot of lovely American friends and clients I was lucky to meet here in UK. So to all of you who celebrate - Happy Thanksgiving!
This photograph makes me smile and sums up what I'm most grateful for in my life:
Every family has a story that is unique to them. I love that I can help to record a tiny little part of it. This story is about a little boy who loves running around. A lot is happening in his life - he will soon become a big brother and this summer his grandma came for a visit. And these photos will help to remember that time in his life.
I love how big his eyes got when he was climbing the tree:
I don't photograph couples very often, mostly as a part of a family session, but I'm so glad I did this session. We went to Clifton Bridge on the evening of balloon fiesta hoping the balloons would go up and provide us with a beautiful backdrop but it didn't happen due to the rain. Looking at the bright side, all the crowds have disappeared once it has started raining. There was still enough people left who were cheering for Paul and giving him thumbs up because Vanessa looked just so beautiful!
We then drove to Bristol harbour and spend some time around SS Great Britain. Shall I mention it was pouring as we drove but thankfully the rain has stopped soon after we have arrived. It turned out that their 2nd date was there, so it's a special place for them.
This is just a selection of my favourites from the session, I have resisted the urge to share all of them!
