Sydenham Woods in autumn is possibly my favourite place to do location family photo shoots and for this one we were treated to the most amazing weather. In the open the sun was too strong for flattering photography, but in the woods it was dappled and beautiful.

It was lovely to work with one of my favourite families again. The mother has a strong interest in photography herself and always brings creative ideas to the session. Her love of black and white gives me a rare opportunity to flex my monotone muscles and the photos always end up looking great.

I really hope I’ll get to work with this family again and keep watching this amazing little girl grow up.
