Another fabulous shoot at Hilliers in Romsey this afternoon. It is definitely becoming the shoot location of choice this autumn!

The colours were beautiful and the Noble family were up for anything. The boys (aged 6 and 3) were full of beans and absolutely loved having the freedom to run around and be free. This is why I love this part of my job so much – a lot of children do not want to sit down and be still and smile – they want to run and whoop and chase bubbles. And that is exactly what Charlie and Jack did during this shoot – and it was absolutely brilliant. They loved the balloons and the bubbles and had a great time having races, and I had a great time capturing this moments for them.

I love not only capturing family moments in shoots like this, but what is more important is being able to captures the children’s personalities, as that is what parents want from their images – photographs that stand the test of time. Yes parents want nice photographs of their children, but they also want to remember their children’s quirks, or facial expressions, or mannerisms from the moment in time. As we all know so well, time flies at the best of the time, but children seem to grow and change so quickly, that is so special and important to capture these small moments before they go and change all over again!
