We did make a summer bucket list which included things like having picnics, going to the beach, lots of dog walks and making daisy chains. We managed to do most of our list but the weather was rather temperamental over the summer period.
We were contacted by Donna from Sweet Whimsy Photography to see if we would like to be involved in her 'Sweet Summer Challenge,' which was being photographed as a family embracing the summer. We jumped at the chance as we hadn't had any photographs taken of us as a family of 4.
We decided to meet Donna at a local field at around 6pm. It was a bit of an overcast day but at least it wasn't raining. Donna is absolutely lovely and was fantastic with the kids. Eva thought she was brilliant and in true to Eva form, didn't stop talking. Donna made us all feel very relaxed. In fact most of the time it didn't even feel like she was there. She certainly captured us in a very natural way.
We chased each other around the field. We played hide and seek which we all loved. We threw the kids up in the air and we tickled each other. It was a lovely way to end the day. We giggled and smiled and enjoyed each other's company.
It always amazes me how the simplest things in life can bring you the most enjoyment and pleasure. This was one of those moments.
After the shoot I couldn't wait to see the images. When they were sent through hubby and I were completely blown away. They are stunning. Simply breathtaking. Every single picture is worthy of being framed on our walls. Donna is incredibly talented. The lighting she has captured is beautiful and we can't thank her enough for giving us such special memories.
We are definitely going to use her again. I am hoping to get some shots of me breastfeeding Ophelia (before she stops) and we are planning to have a winter shoot around christmas time and hopefully get Alfie our dog in those too.
