Back to Burlingham

25th September 2014
I have to be honest. Woods and forests are funny things, most are ok, some quite frankly give me the creeps and some are just a joy to spend time in. Burlingham Woods comes into the latter category. I have only been there three times, all at different times of the year, and each time I'm overwhelmed with how peaceful the place feels. Anyway enough of my hippy, tree-hugging ramblings, the point is, I love the place so it was great to go back and do another shoot there. Last time I visited was Spring, and the woodland floor was carpeted with wild Daffodils, this time the heavy Summer canopy was still on the trees, giving the place another feel entirely for the shoot....which was another family one; Mum, Dad, daughter and son, (one of which was keener than the other on having photos taken), but with the freedom to roam and enjoy the woods, it's quite easy to change a boy's opinion on being a model! The little lady on the other hand was (I was told afterwards) smitten by the session, loving every chance to pose for the camera. Mum and dad did join in for a few group shots, but typically in these shoots are more than happy to have the kids take centre stage.
It was an enjoyable hour spent walking through the woods, stopping to capture family images, some of which you can see below. Much fun was had by all.


Who doesn't like to have a little lean on a gate every now and then??


I have no idea what he said, but boys will be boys...!


My more than willing model for an hour
