I have known Richard and Elaine for some time now and when they first discussed with me about having a family photo shoot I was excited at the thought of being able to help them.
I have met their family a couple of times before, so I knew what I was letting myself in for!! A wonderful, fun and friendly family. I know that they were really keen to capture some special moments that they could keep forever, and I had a lot of fun photographing them in the early evening light of Rufford Abbey.
As a family photographer I always hope to capture the personalities and connections between people. I always take a relaxed approach to my shoots, hoping that it helps people feel at ease, as most have not spent too much time in front of a lens. Knowing both Richard and Elaine I knew that the family would get straight into it.
The evening saw the great unity of a lovely family and it was an absolute pleasure to work with them all.
