Well, not my backyard personally… This beautiful family were catching up with friends later in the day who just happened to live on this lovely property with a gorgeously landscaped yard.
I love doing shoots like this – we wandered around, letting the kids do their own thing, getting them back in for some whole family shots, then letting them go again and capturing the natural groupings as they occurred. Finding great little locations in the yard, getting the family in the general area and seeing what happens, give a few directions, but basically letting them interact in their own way and coming away with some beautiful photos.
The kids were fantastic! The boys were so well behaved and into the whole thing while the little girl toddled around after her big brothers and her parents. This is a family that obviously love each other to bits. That photo below of the two boys – I just asked them to sit next to each other on the steps and this is what they did, such a special photo.
It was a pleasure meeting this family and taking their photos.
