[I] always enjoy family portrait sessions, I love capturing the special moments and facial expressions on the kids faces when they are having a fun time with their parents.
This one was particularly fabulous though, because it was with Sian, one of my best friends, her husband-to-be Tom and their gorgeous 6-month old boy Rufus. I picked Horton Country Park in Epsom, Surrey for the shoot, I hadn’t been there before but I’ll definitely go again because it’s such a beautiful place. It was particularly pretty as it was the first week of October and the leaves were turning wonderful shades of orange and yellow, creating a lovely warm feeling for the photos.
I was looking forward to this shoot because Sian had told me ahead of time that Rufus liked having his photo taken. I was not disappointed, he demonstrated a wide range of emotions in his expressions and had clearly been working on his ‘Blue Steel’ pose. I think they may have a mini model-in-the-making on their hands.
