Sorry for the blog hiatus! I’m back, we had a short family holiday in Greece (which was just bliss!) I’m got some amazing photographs to share of that experience but today I’m bringing you a Bristol family photography session. Like most of my family photography we headed to Ashton Court. It has lovely grounds and some really fun features that work well in photos. I know I shouldn’t use that yellow wall so much but it just looks amazing!
Nathan and Emma signed me up to take photos of their little family. They literally don’t have any of the 4 of them together so it was a real honour to take these family photos for them.
Since my own daughter came along (almost a year ago now!) the value I place on family photography has grown. Seeing them grow up so quickly makes me realise how important photography is. Not necessarily to share photos immediately on instagram or Facebook, but to look back on in 15, 20, 30+ years. Some of my most valuable photos are of me as a child. I’m a bit indulgent like that! Not seriously, mainly because there are so few. I think I have a about 25 of me in total – which span 10 years. As I mentioned in my about me page my parents didn’t really own a camera so the photos I have are taken by relatives or the ‘official school photo.’ There are maybe 2 photos of my mum, my dad and me together. That’s all I need, but it would be nice to have more of a visual family archive!
Anyway… here is the family session with lots of yellow walls! I really hope you like them!
