Walton Gardens Grown Up Autumn Family Shoot

When I talk about family shoots, this can come in all guises and all ages. This week I have photographed twin newborn boys with their two year old brother.  I have photographed a mum, dad, baby daughter and toddler daughter and this weekend I have an extended family to capture, from grandparents, parents, aunties, uncles and children. They say variety is the spice of life. My life is certainly spicy this week :).

Walton Gardens Grown Up Autumn Family Shoot

I was recently commissioned to by Anise, to photograph a grown up family as a surprise for her mum. We arranged the shoot secretly by email then arranged me meet at the lovely Walton Gardens, one of my favourite photography locations, near Warrington.

Mum was certainly surprised and did not know anything about the shoot until I said hello with camera in hand!

Walton Gardens are lovely at any time of year. We did the shoot in Autumn and the colours were amazing.

Just near the car park is the canal and a chance for some water side images. Here is Anise with her brother Max, on the receiving end of a reluctant hug!

I love using my long lens for crisp, intimate family portraits.

The grounds of Walton Gardens is full of hidden paths, water features and ponds full of ducks.

I love using benches, but not necessarily with everyone sat in a row looking at me. Much better to be laughing and joking with each other.

Take one fancy low wall, a brother and sister, Autumn sunshine and golden trees. Perfect.

I have a bit of a thing for interesting doors. Sad but true. This one makes a fab backdrop for a relaxed family image.

Creating beautiful memories for a grown up family.
