Autumn child photo session - Caldicot

I think we caught the last rays of Autumn for this session, which I shot in the park around Caldicot Castle.  This is one of my most favourite places to go for child and family photoshoots, because the colours, light and space are just beautiful.  But don't just take my word for it, have a look for yourself!  This young lady was just a delight to photograph, and her mum jumped in for a couple of shots too, even though she wasn't very keen on being in front of the camera at the start.

I'm so glad she did, and I think she is too, as she picked out one of the two of them together to have as her largest print.  It's important to get in front of the lens now and again, particularly with your kids, so that your children will have a lasting visual reminder of that special connection between you, of how you look now.  I'll admit, I'm not always in photographs with my children because as a mother and photographer I tend to be the one to have the camera in my hands, but every year I book out some time to get photographs of us as a family, and then I print and frame my favourite.  But even if it's just in a hasty selfie rather than a professional photoshoot, mums, make sure you get in a couple of shots with your kids - they'll love it.
