Foggy beach family photo session

I had a magical day on the beach just before Christmas with this family. It was a proper pea souper. I don't think I've ever seenĀ  fog like it before. It's given the images a gorgeous whimsy feel, wintery and ethereal. We could hear the sea but we couldn't see it, it was very strange and not only that but there were load of gorgeous orange starfish everywhere. Every rockpool we went past they were lying there, showing off in all their glory. There were lots of cries of 'starfish!' throughout the session every time we saw one, so of course, I had to take a photo of one posing in a rock pool (see the end of this post).

I've photographed the girls before, a few years ago, so I was pleased to be able to get Mum and Granny in the photos this time too. I know I'm always going on about it, but existing in photos is so important and at the viewing session the girls loved having their Mum in the photos with them.

Lots of love and joy in these images. I think the girls enjoyed their modelling stint and they were willing to try out lots of things, even doing the 'serious' face when all they wanted to do was grin! Thanks ladies, I think you all look beautiful.

Southerndown Beach Shoot

This Southerndown beach shoot captured my heart. I love the beach and Southerndown is one of my favourite places to be. So when I met the Cookson family and we had so much in common, I knew this was going to be a fantastic experience.

The session started off in the walled gardens, high on the cliffs above the beach. Then as the sun started to set, we walked down onto the beach and had a play in the water. I'm super happy with all the pictures from the session and even thinking about booking my own beach photo shoot for next Summer! Thanks for being amazing guys!
