Autumn Family Photo Shoot at Westonbirt Arboretum

Last October I had the pleasure of taking a wonderful family out for a little walk through the Westonbirt Arboretum. Karen contacted me to enquire about a family shoot of her two boys and husband in a nice outdoor location near Malmesbury. And what better place to go than the world famous Arboretum! If you haven’t been I highly recommend it. Most people like to join the crowds during autumn because of the park’s stunning colours (seriously, you’ll be blown away) but in my honest opinion the park is well worth a visit ANY time of year. Chances are you find me there going for a stroll or run with my baby boy in his buggy.

So of course I suggested the Arboretum and this family of four had a wonderful time playing with leafs, blowing bubbles and frolicking around whilst I snapped away. I believe the best photos of children (and adults for that matter) are taken when they are completely immersed in doing something they enjoy. There’s no need to sit still for me, or pose in any way, just be yourselves. Have a look through the photos below to see the results of this completely natural approach to family photography.
