WOODLAND ADVENTURE|Dorset family photography

Spring is round the corner.  With more little pops of colour emerging every day it really does feel like winter is finally coming to an end. Everything is slowly waking up,  and I may be imagining it but even the birds are singing louder! 

I'm loving this gorgeous weather and the longer days, and the fact that it's actually light in the morning when the alarm goes off :)  For the last couple of weekends we've been busy exploring secret hideaways and hidden valleys in these beautiful North Dorset downs.  I've got lots of bookings for my outdoor family sessions and can't wait to start shooting in some of these amazing locations with their wild meadows, meandering chalk streams, quiet woodlands and much more.     

Hooray to those of you who live in London and have booked your session down here :)  I can't wait to show you how beautiful Dorset is!  I've compiled a list of gorgeous places to stay in the area, from Georgian country houses to uber comfy pubs with great food,  and will  be writing a post on them soon, but do drop me a line if you'd like to hear my recommendations in the meantime. 

Today's post is from a sweet session I photographed last August in Somerset.  L&L have access to a magical place that can only be reached on foot - we had to hike through the woods until it suddenly opened out into a copse of huge ancient oak trees that sat on the side of a steep hill. The view dropped away dramatically in front of us and we could see for miles over the rolling Somerset landscape.  We picnicked amongst these magnificent trees, and then wandered home in time for tea. My kind of day! 

I've still got sessions available both in London and throughout the South West,  so if you're interested or just want to find out more about how I work you can either visit my INFO page or by all means do get in touch

In my next post I'm going to be discussing some really simple and fun tips on how to capture genuine emotion when photographing your children.  The tips are easy and have even been known to work on grown ups too ;) 

Have a wonderful Easter!  X
