Autumn Family Photos Leicester
Blinded by the low sun we climbed up the hill and headed for the woods, kids running ahead, full speed. We’d aimed for the afternoon but still the sun was strong and we had to look for shade, so we played. On a log, in the grass, on the ferns. the crunchiness of the leaves, the earthy smell, the fun of being together, the joy of seeing the kids have fun. Teams: kids together, mum and dad, mum and Grace, Iwan and dad, all these relationships, these unique love captured at play. The smothering cuddles, the tickles, the need for space, the differences, all revealed within 2 hours.
The family photos that matter aren’t the ones all polished and polite, these are for strangers and distant relatives. The ones that take you back are the quirky ones where you can still hear his childish giggle, her speeding ahead, where you feel his hand on the small of your back so light yet a sure sign. Iwan is a questioner, his brain racing faster than the words come out, so trying to share with you all these thoughts and questions.
Grace is full steam ahead, raring to go, up for anything, brave and strong. And she loves fiercely, her parents, her little brother whom she nearly strangles with love and he lets her do it-just- because he -as many second siblings – is first in awe of his elder sister and in slight competition.
It was cold, my hands started to get numb, the kids wanted hot chocolate, so time for treats sitting in the setting sun before heading home, cold, tired and happy, excited to see the photos only 2 days later.
