I have been so busy doing outdoor autumn photo sessions for the last couple of weeks that I haven’t had time to put any of the images online, but I had to share these.

This is the final session in my first year package with a wonderful family whose daughter I photographed at 7 months and as a newborn. As many families choose to, they had each one of their three sessions in different locations. So they now have studio images of their daughter, photographs taken at home and images taken at a favourite location. And what a great idea it was to do the location session in Battersea Park in the autumn.

Despite it being nearby, I’d never actually been to Battersea Park before. London has so many amazing parks that I am slowly working my way through but I think it may take me a lifetime. We postponed the session by a week, as the weather wasn’t good on the day we had originally booked it for. I’m really passionate about doing outdoor portrait shoots using beautiful available light so am always happy to rearrange to ensure we get the best pictures possible. I’m very glad we did this time. The colours of the leaves lit by the low sun were amazing.

As I said before, it’s always sad to finish a one year package but I’m very glad that we were able to do such a fun session as the last one with this family and that I got to see their daughter walking and looking so grown up.
