I must admit that it was actually pretty amazing that I even managed to turn up to this session. I had left the house without my phone, so I had no way to contact them or call a friend to direct me to the right location and on top of that I only had the last part of the map printed out to show me where they lived (and in my head it was a different road to what it actually was). Not to let such small things get in my way, I followed my instincts and ended up finding my destination. As luck would have it, the kiddie-winks had been having a nap anyway and were only just coming round to being awake again as I got there. Perfect!
A lovely cup of tea later – thank you for that, I think I needed it! – we were ready to get on with our shoot. There was no need to go very far, there was a wonderfully lit barn out the back where we set up the mini studio and a great garden with apple trees in the back. Ideal. I love it when a location just screams out for me to take pictures at it and I would hire mum for her keen trips back to the house for different outfits for the kids.
The little girl had just turned one and was really keen on trying to walk everywhere, I should imagine she actually is now. The little boy was just charming and cheeky – just as boys should be. Thanks for a great session!

And of course a very regal portrait of the feline member of the family:

And a happy Halloween to everyone this weekend (don’t the colours all go great together here!):
