I have just got back from my first truly autumnal swim of the year at Tooting Bec Lido. Small golden leaves softly rained down upon me as I swam and more floated on the surface of the water and lay on the bottom of the pool. I love the heat of summer, so always have a little disappointment to get over before I remember that autumn is the best time of year for outdoor photography.

It is particularly special for me, as it was after a lovely autumn session with three toddlers in the woods about five years ago that I came up with the name Warm Glow Photo. The combination of the amazing light you get at this time of year with the variety of golds, reds, yellows and browns of the trees and the leaves underfoot, as well as the freedom and excitement the children felt as they explored it, showed me the type of photographer I wanted to be.

I wanted to share with you a few of my favourite autumn pictures. If you’re interested in booking a session please get in touch. I really love photographing outside at this time of year and would like to do it as much as possible.
