It was the second shoot of the day for me! Having spent the morning with a wonderful family with 3 littlies, I later in the day, headed over to meet 3 more lovely children at Lesnes Abbey Ruins, Abbey Wood, Bexley. The weather had been kind to us today, having been preceded by the most awful rain in the previous week, and it was so nice to see a little bit of blue sky. The fact it was overcast didn't matter one bit, (in fact for photographers this is actually a plus!), and I met this wonderful bunch of 3 and their dad late afternoon.
The photoshoot was actually a surprise for Mum's upcoming birthday. I do love it when Dads contact me to book a surprise shoot for their other halves, I know exactly how precious pictures of their children are to Mum, its a really thoughtful and wonderful present to buy - gift vouchers are now available to buy online on my web site so no excuse!!!
We started of our shoot, at a certain little stair case I love there. I often say to the children, just talk among yourselves a minute, look away, and then start snapping! A great way to get some lovely candid shots and get the children to really relax around me. We took individual portraits, as well as pictures of all 3 together. One of my favourites from this shoot, reminds me of the Abbey Road Beetles album cover. There is no zebra crossing involved but I think you'll see what I mean!
This was one of my mini shoots, and we spent about 30 minutes, (well maybe a little longer as I always get carried away!) taking a casual walk around the ruins, with me taking pictures as we went. These 3 were great, and their close relationship shone through - now that Mum's had her pictures, she is delighted with the results and now just needs to frame them and get them on the wall!
Thanks you 3 - you were great and made my job very easy! Till next time.......
