Mark contacted me to ask if I would be able to photograph himself along with his brothers and their 18 month old black lab, Tilly.
The boys wanted the photo shoot so that they could give their parents a thoughtful gift for Christmas. Photo shoots make excellent Christmas presents, be it the prints from family photo shoots or a whole photo shoot package - especially for the "person who has everything."
My brother came along to assist me with these photos. He was in charge of squeaking the toys and balls to get Tilly to look at the camera. She was a star and managed to contain her excitment enabling us to get some brilliant shots.
The shoot took place at our local woods. The weather was perfect and the golden and orange leaves really made the perfect backdrop. We spent a couple of hours in the woods finding trees to climb and logs to sit on. The boys had their own ideas for particular shots too which I really enjoyed capturing. The shoot mainly involved posed photographs however I did get a few funny shots of Tilly playing in the leaves and Mark and his brothers playing on the rope swings!
I thought that this was such a thoughtful idea for their parents - I can't wait to see what they choose to have printed!
