Bump Shoot Mesnes Park Wigan

I am lucky to be surrounded by beautiful outdoor locations in the North West. The nearest beach is only 45 minutes away. Manchester city centre is a short drive. The whole area is dotted with pretty woodland, meadows and formal parks. Perfect for a portrait shoot.

Recently I met up with Lou and Ron for a bump shoot at Mesnes Park in Wigan. This is the prefect location for a North West portrait shoot. It has the formal gardens full of flowers and green lawns. There is also a lake, woodlands, a Tudor style lodge and a grand pavilion. A photographer’s dream.

We were not sure what the weather was going to be like on this British summer’s day, so I brought along a pretty heart-shaped umbrella by Love Umbrellas, so that if the weather did turn a bit iffy Lou could keep dry in style. As it happened, the sun came out, so we used the umbrella as a parasol instead.     Bump shoot mesnes park wigan sitting in flowers floral umbrella

I always come armed with a couple of props and essentials, such as a small picnic blanket to sit on. No one wants to drive home with a damp bottom!

This is Lou’s favourite image from the day. She’s ordered a large print as a keepsake of a special time.

Lou’s pretty peach top looks great against the fresh green foliage.

This is Lou and Rob’s favourite image of the two of them.  Soon 2 will become 4.

I’m a sucker for wrought iron gates and as Mesnes Park holds special sentimental memories for Lou, this image seemed like the perfect end to the shoot.

I’m looking forward to meeting the twins very soon. In the meantime, if you would like to arrange a bump shoot or North West location shoot, please book here. Alternatively please contact me for a chat.
