Another gorgeous Saturday when I headed out to Fagans Park for these family photos. There are so many beautiful locations throughout the different gardens here, it was easy finding different and lovely backdrops for the photos. We went on quite a bit of a trek around the park and most of the time it felt like we had the place to ourselves (and the ducks!) as it had been a wet end to the week and the morning had dawned a bit grey, however it was an absolutely perfect morning. The autumn colour was glowing and the last of the leaves were still clinging to the trees.
Kids make me laugh sometimes at their honesty, at the start of the shoot I asked the boy if he was looking forward to doing the photos. His answer was “No, not really”. So I made sure we quickly found some fun things to do and set him some challenges to get him going – it’s amazing how enthusiastic kids can get when you ask which step they can jump off, or bet they can’t climb on to a particular rock! He didn’t admit it, but I’m pretty sure he had a good time and we certainly got some good grins out of him.
I had so much fun photographing this family and being able to capture so much fun and love amongst the gorgeous autumn colour.
