As a photographer, if there’s one thing I love the most about spring it’s the end of the dull and dreary weather which dominates the winter months. Spring is full of new life, with flowers and plants coming out of their hibernation and bursting forward in their full technicolour glory providing my camera with a much more interesting pallet of colours to capture along with the beautiful family portraits I’m commissioned to capture. And as a family portrait photographer the Sussex countryside around Horsham and Christ’s Hospital is full of opportunity for beautiful photography, both for the portrait photographer and for the seasoned walkers amongst us.
So it was with great pleasure that Paul and Hannah asked me to capture a family portrait as a memento of their son reaching his sixth month, I was more than pleased to oblige. We arranged the photo shoot and prayed for the weather to hold (the forecast wasn’t looking great) typical of the season and English weather it started to rain just as I left for the shoot. Fortunately Paul and Hannah aren’t of the faint hearted variety and we went ahead with the walk and shoot regardless of the rain.
All in all, one of my favourite family location photo shoots with a beautiful family and ‘interesting’ weather.
