Last weekend, I met this beautiful extended family for a photo session at a country park near their home in Hertfordshire.  Grandad had generously bid on, and won, a portrait commission I had offered up for auction to support the wonderful Street Child charity at their London Christmas Ball last year. After our initial contact, we had patiently waited a few months until the weather warmed up to finally get everyone together- the grandparents, children and grandchildren – to capture some beautiful portraits of everyone together.

On the day of the session, we were blessed with a beautiful summery day. After we all got to know each other, we decided to go on a bear hunt, the children’s favourite activity! On this glorious summery afternoon, there was much exploration and swishy-swashying in the tall grasses, wildflower meadows and lush woodland. We didn’t really catch a big one, and we were definitely not scared – as you can see from this young man’s magnificent belly laugh!  This lovely moment between a Mum and her son truly caught my eye, so wanted to share it as a teaser, whilst I am preparing the full set to share with this family.
