A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of a Cardiff family photoshoot with a lovely family in Bute Park. Photographing families in nature is my favourite, as the children get to run around safely and parents are more relaxed and happy than if they were in a studio.
You can see from the natural smiles and connection in these images that this sort of environment brings out the best in families. As with all my family portrait sessions, I don’t focus on posing, instead I gently guide families into the best locations and I let them connect with each other naturally.
When children have a space to run and play, it doesn’t take much to make them happy. In this case, it was a little windmill and some bubbles. I love bubbles! No family session should be without them!
This place was all the more special to this family, because they got married at the nearby Welsh College of Music and Drama. It’s great when families choose a location that has a special meaning for them, as the images become even more special.
I just love daddy and baby images!
And mummy and baby images!
