As you can tell very quickly from looking at my blog, I absolutely love taking photos. I love the little moment in time that is captured every time you press that button on your phone or camera.
The trouble is, that in our house, I’m always behind the camera! There are hardly any photos with me in them, and while I’m not hugely vain, I do like having photos of the whole family. Every month I try to take a family photo of all of us, but they are usually quite staged as I have to set up the camera on it’s tripod and make sure everyone is smiling and looking in the right direction. It’s a technique that doesn’t give much room for capturing a natural moment.
I was so delighted when Donna from Sweet Whimsy Photography got in touch with me to offer me a family outdoors photoshoot. I love Donna’s style of photography. She captures real and natural moments and her photos are just beautiful.
On the day we headed down to Porthkerry Park and we were lucky that it was a beautiful sunny day. Donna made us feel really at ease and we basically just played with the children for an hour while she snapped away. We didn’t really have time or cause to feel awkward or like we were posing for photos, it was very laid back and the children were really comfortable running around as they pleased too.
I was so happy with the photos I thought I would share a few with you here, they’ll be definitely going up in frames around the house! I love the natural movement that she captures in each shot, our hair blowing in the wind and the genuine smiles on the children’s faces. They are photos that I’ll always treasure.
I don’t think that I’m biased when I say these are just so beautiful! I love them!
