Lifestyle Family Photography
There are so many amazing locations that I get introduced to all the time, but I am nearly ashamed to say that this was my first visit to Hadleigh Castle (living in Leigh for nearly 9 years) here I said it!
This is Clare’s family. I know Clare for over 7 years and she is the kind of friend who I don’t need to see in ages but time means nothing and we just pick where we left of, you know the one!
So, there were no plans for the session, just intention to show up. There was no preferred location so we picked one between our houses; no preferred activity so we took kite; no ideas or expectations of the final images – ‘just some of us together, you know anyway’, so we did just that! We run around the tower, blew some huge bubbles, wished we dressed warmer as it was cool and really windy (maybe too windy for kiting) and in the end realized that running after a kite wasn't too bad of an activity after all! Happy kids!
An hour went in blink of an eye, we laughed, we chatted, felt all the feelings, it’s not always easy to get in a flow of family fun; there are practicalities, reservation, some awkward moments, obvs kids involved; but it felt so good to let go of the final result, of having no ideas, of what you may have seen in your friends houses and solely concentrate on you and your family, it may surprise you how wonderful and unique you are in your own way! I love the way the story is told through their pictures, the connection between them and how well Darren embraced his pictures taken ;) Love you millions xxx
