Kids and sticks. Walking in the park, running through a forest, climbing a tree, jumping around the school playground; surely none of these could be done without holding a stick. During a recent family photo session in Oldmoor bluebell woods, Nottinghamshire the humble stick certainly took centre stage…
As we step into December, everyone's minds must be looking towards Christmas and... uho.
What do I get for the person that has everything?
How about something a little different, a little more personal and something that they can truly treasure forever? A photograph means so much more to people than many people realise. An opportunity to capture your family, your engagement or wedding that you will look back on in a few years and say, "Yes, I'm so glad I had that taken."
As the autumn leaves were still on the trees, and the colours were still looking stunning, we were really excited to meet Chloe and Craig (and of course their gorgeous kids, Spencer and Frazer) at Elvaston Castle in Derbyshire for their pre-wedding photography session. These meet-ups are always great, we get together with a couple for the first time, talk through their plans for their wedding and do a quick photography session, all before they book or commit to using us for their wedding.
We LOVE autumn, we LOVE the colours and we LOVE the many, many photographic opportunities it brings. These photographic opportunities are way more exciting that the many pumpkin spiced lattes you might see on Instagram!
So when you book your autumn family photography session, what creative ideas should you get out of your session? Whether you book a shoot with us or another family photographer in Nottingham, make sure you go prepared with these creative shots and tips!
