A day in the life- family photography in Walton on the Hill


This family photography session really brings the sunshine into the middle of winter.  It was a very grey and rainy day, but you would never know that from the relaxed warm images.  This is a really special shoot because we decided to go more editorial and capture Sally, George and their girls relaxing at home.  Really relaxed and natural, doing activities that they would normally do together- literally capturing a slice of their life forever.

One of the really special things about this type of shoot is that it captures the everyday details- special looks, smiles, moments and hugs, that families do all the time, but rarely get to see.

It was such fun too- I got to spend time with this lovely family at their home in Walton on the Hill and enjoy the delicious cake they made during their photoshoot. Who needs sunshine outside when you have it in your heart?

I'm really happy to share some of the magical photographs from this family session:

Family Photoshoot in Walton on the Hill, Surrey, KT20 by Amanda DarlingHappy Monday Friends,

Don't some days just flow pefectly? I leapt out of bed this morning, the kids made it easy by being ready for school EARLY, the sunrise was spectacular and I even remembered to take my vitamins!  The school bus was on time, I was in and out of the supermarket with no queues and slid onto my office chair at 9:30 on the dot.  Bam! (as my 12 year old would say).

The reason for my happy endorphins?  My 2017 family photography shooting season started last Saturday- and I am so happy to be behind the camera again and shooting sessions for the lovely families of Surrey, Sussex and Kent.   I have an absolute beauty of a family photoshoot to share with you later this week- something a little bit different and a lot special, so watch this space.

So what is new this week?

  • The evenings are definitely getting brighter- isn't it lovely picking the children up from school before dark?
  • It's exam week (again!)- is it just me or haven't we just had an exam week?
  • I have just had all my kit cleaned and serviced- thank you Nikon- and it was like Christmas getting the box of camera bodies and lenses back.  I definitely felt strange without them.
  • We have spring cleaned so much here at the farm over the last month
  • Newsflash: you can walk across my daughter's bedroom without treading on something
  • Outside on the farm, the ewes are all eating enough for two, and we eagerly await Easter and the arrival of the lambs
  • We had the last blackberry and apple that I froze from last autumn's harvest- what a perfect taste of late summer to lift us in the middle of winter

Let's keep up this happy week.  Have a great one everyone....
