I love outdoor family photography all year round, but in the spring time it really is extra special! The timing of this family photo shoot fell just as the bluebell season was coming to a peak, the buttercups were in full bloom, and the rhododendrons had just started flowering! The result was a beautiful backdrop of spring flowers for their family photographs.

We met in Walton-on-Thames for a late-afternoon play in the woods, and with both children fresh from an afternoon nap, they were full of smiles and cuddles. As a mum myself, it’s really important to me that I time my photography sessions around when the children are going to be at their best. The most beautiful flowers in the countryside will not make up for a grumpy baby!

This family really embraced my guidance on what to wear for your family photoshoot, which I’m always keen to help with before a session.  The result was a stunning set of photographs which I hope will be treasured for years to come!
