I always get excited when a client says they want their shoot done at home. New locations keep me fresh and inspired. It’s also extra special for a family to look back on their photos when they are taken in a location that means something to them. The Dobson’s family home is surrounded by hills and countryside with trees that have white trunks. It’s been a long time since it’s rained so the surroundings have a monochromatic colour scheme – I love this!
I always say, the hardest part of getting family photos done is getting ready! The shoot itself is relaxed. We wandered around the property, chatted, stopping for the shots I needed, often getting photobombed by cows.
A few weeks after the shoot I went back out to the Dobson’s home and it looked like a different location. It had rained!
