A couple of weeks ago, just as the Autumn started to show its true colours, I met with this beautiful family at one of my favourite locations near Basingstoke for our first photo session. We’d had the opportunity to meet for a coffee and chat at my studio a few days prior, so by the time the day of the shoot arrived, we had already broken the ice and had a solid game plan for some really natural family shots – and how we were going to make them happen.

It was early morning and the sun was shining at regular intervals (sometimes while raining, too!). Combined with the dazzling array of autumnal colours and the giant water mirror, this set up left me absolutely spoilt for choice of lighting and compositions. But ultimately, what really makes these images is the connection and love between these three beautiful souls, who spent an hour genuinely savouring this moment of play.

The youngest of our group definitely made the most of his parents’ permission to embrace the water! Wellies came in handy for all of us 🙂 This turned out to be one of my all-time best sessions, and I am so excited to be able to share some of my favourite images today.
