Almost two years to the day after our first shoot, I found myself back at The Rookery on Streatham Common with one of my favourite families for another gloriously sunny day.

This family is such a pleasure to photograph. The parents are easy going; the kids are confident, relaxed and love exploring. I just have to chase around after them taking pictures.

A photograph of the older girl eating an ice cream that I took last time has been on my postcard and website ever since. It’s a favourite of mine because of the way her amazing eyes draw you in. The best thing about last week’s shoot was seeing how her little sister had grown up. From a babe in arms last time to a walking, talking little person who makes her opinions known.

I really love re-photographing families that I have worked with before; it’s the most interesting and rewarding part of my job. Doing that on a sunny day in a local park makes just about the perfect day for me.
