This certainly has to be one of my most favourite photo shoots to date. Gorgeous parents, gorgeous kids and….a gorgeous dog! What more could a photographer ask for? Ah, yes, a gorgeous location…well i got that too:) From the minute this family arrived and got out of their car, I knew i was in for a really special shoot. The day was beautifully bright and sunny , the kids looked like they had stepped out of a magazine and Mom and Dad looked like they could have been on the cover of one. And then there was Monty….the dog! Ah, what can i say about Monty other than he was impeccably behaved and a real trooper. He posed and listened and just added another life to my shoot. After shooting a family with their dog, I’m almost inclined to invite dogs on every shoot. They really do add a bit more magic and make the whole shoot just a little more personal. Mum Harriet runs an Etsy shop where she designs and makes stunning bespoke garlands for weddings, parties and events. Harriet brought along a beautiful garland which we incorporated into the shoot. You can view her Facebook page here.

I love these photos. From the delicious light, the tree lined pathways, the stunning white flowers and the beautiful smiles. This shoot was literally infused with an ‘effortless magic’ and I’m just in love with the results:) I hope you enjoy them too.

We had a spring shoot in the park with: 2 children, 1 Dog & 1 large balloon! It was an amazing afternoon with Tanli she has so much energy, enthusiasm & is very very talented!. I couldn’t recommend a better photographer to capture memories you can look back at forever! We will definitely be returning to get some more photographs – Love Hattie xx
