Having only girls I am always amazed by the incredible exuberance of boys and am in complete admiration of all their mothers! A relaxed weekend walk and sticks became guns, trees were instantly climbed, hills run down at top speed (in this instant not that brilliant a photo opportunity but we let them do it anyway – several times!) and it was only after a good couple of hours of this that I stood a chance at getting some calmer portrait shots!
But as Fi, the lovely mum of these two pointed out to me when I was complimenting her on her necessary energy levels ‘I don’t have to do glitter’ – and, well, I do and glitter is a NIGHTMARE.
So even though the shoot started with 2 sets of grass stained knees, we just got on and had fun. One of my favourite shots is the family walking through the woodland – a lovely family moment.
