Autumn outdoor shoots | North London family photographer

As I sit here at my computer looking out of the window at the cold, bleak January weather I am yearning for the beautiful sunshine and colours of last autumn. I had the pleasure of shooting some stunning autumn outdoor sessions last year. I think it is about time I blogged about them! This first shoot was with a gorgeous family in the beautiful location of Cassiobury park in Watford. I can’t believe I have never done a shoot here before. The colours were amazing and there were so many different areas to explore. The boys were a delight to

My style of shooting is very natural and I love to capture children and families at play and having fun either in the great outdoors or around their house. I find studio shoots can take away this spontaneity and immediately make

Family photoshoot in Mill Hill park

Sunny autumnal days are some of my favourite to shoot in and this family photoshoot in Mill Hill park in September was no exception. The sun was shining, the colours were beautiful and I had 2 families and a gorgeous dog to photograph. Happy days! This was only the second time I’ve used Mill Hill park as a location to shoot in. I love the different back drops it provides. First up – woods, gates and some lovely trees to hide behind! I love to find variation in my outdoor shoots and I was delighted to stumble across a disused

What an amazing summer it has been! We have been so spoilt with the weather!
