Autumn Family Photos Loughborough
“I have been looking for a photographer to take photos of our family but I didn’t want to be in a studio, I didn’t want to be posed and feel fake, I’m so glad we found you, it’s exactly what we wanted! ” Gemma also said she’d been really nervous about the shoot and feeling silly for feeling nervous too! I get it, I totally understand feeling nervous, nothing silly about it, I would too, fear of not knowing what to do with myself, of not knowing how the kids are going to react, of how I’m going to look on the photos, of whether it’s actually worth the money… I do understand. So I didn’t try to tell her not to feel what she felt, just that I hoped it’d go away quickly, that she didn’t have to look at me, at the camera, didn’t have to worry about the kids behaving, she was off policing duties, I’d just get them all to play and hoped she could enjoy herself quickly. She did.
The kids were real opposites as often the first and second ones are. The eldest is shy, thoughtful, creative, the second one a mass of energy, questions, intensity, and fun. Harry was unsure, a bit timid but ended up relaxing and enjoying himself, while Louis zoomed about and had every fun he could. It was lovely as ever to see the love they all have for each other, each pair, each triangle special. Aren’t the kids each our favourites? it’s not logical but they melt our hearts in different ways so are each a favourite. And of course, not to forget the love we have for our partner in the parenting adventure, and how being a good parent make us love them just one more.
We were lucky to shoot in Whatton Gardens as they are closed from end of October until the beginning of March. It is such a beautiful venue in each season but I understand the family wants to enjoy their residence privately too. I’d seen horses there before but never the striped cows that were there this time. Zebra cows? someone tells me what they are!
