Moses Gate Family Location Shoot

I am really lucky to be surrounded by fabulous outdoor locations for portrait shoots. From woodlands, to beaches, urban city scapes, to formal parks. There really is something for everyone. Just a 10 minute drive away is the beautiful Moses Gate Country park. This is a huge green space with several lakes, extensive woodland, lots of lawns, umpteen ducks and an ice cream van.

I recently had the pleasure of photographing one of my favourite families. Emily opted for a bump shoot with me while she was expecting Amelia. When Amelia was born I photographed her newborn shoot, in the comfort of her home. The following year I was privileged to photograph Emily’s wedding to Anthony in the Lake District. Now Amelia was 1 and her Aunty Harriet had organised a special family shoot/ cake smash shoot.

It was a beautiful September day. Emily had brought along helium balloons and a cake for Amelia but before the messy bit got underway we took the time to take some precious family images.

I love the lakes at Moses Gate Country Park. Lots of different sizes and landscapes surrounding them.

Harriet is totally a doting Aunty and there were plenty of cuddles by the waterside.

Harriet and Emily are very close so it was lovely to capture that bond.

Amelia loved her al fresco cake smash. Her peach tutu looked adorable.

She soon got into the swing of the smash part of the cake smash. I’m sure I ended up with more cake on me that Amelia though 🙂

We even photographed a little bit of “cake confetti”.
