It wasn't a particularly early start, but it felt like it with the biting air. I met Erica and her wonderful little boy int he car park and quickly started chatting and walking and getting down to business. Her son was charming and funny and not at all too shy which made it very easy to get great shots of him being a toddler and exploring the world around him with great enthusiasm. We met some swans and ducks, which followed us for the whole morning, some a little closer than we'd all have liked at times. There was lots of splashing in "piggy puddles" and playing in sand and swinging on swings and making up stories about "Stickman" and discovering "The Great Valley".
Truly lovely morning and it was a real pleasure and relaxing shoot, despite being full after Christmas Day food binging!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, ours was great. Click and have a look at some more of the photos from the shoot.
