Larbert Woods – The Russell Family

“If a year was tucked inside of a clock, then autumn would be the magic hour.” – Victoria Erickson

I love every season change I really do. From the optimism of new life that Spring brings to the mellow heat of Summer (if we’re lucky). And I love cosy nights in and brisk walks in winter but, if I was pushed to pick a favourite season it would have to be Autumn. I love the light, I love all the colours, it is just beautiful.

So, I am overjoyed when a family wants a location shoot in Autumn instead of the studio.

Introducing the Russell Family

I met mum, dad and 18-month-old Rebecca at Larbert Woods. It is literally on both of our doorsteps and a bit of a hidden gem (if you don’t mind getting your photos taken whilst dog walkers and joggers go by)!

It was a beautiful Autumnal Sunday morning and despite the clocks ‘Falling Back’ we all managed to meet in the car park on time. Better still they had read the pre-shoot guide I send out and all looked fab in their autumnal appropriate outfits. Most of all I was struck by  Rebecca’s huge blue eyes. They were incredible!

I mean honestly! You could swim in those eyes! And they were framed by the most ginormous black eyelashes. Simply stunning!

Back to the Family

Remembering that I was there to shoot the whole family I traipsed the family around my favourite parts of the woods for photographs. And of course, with it being Autumn I couldn’t resist a little leaf throwing session. Miss Rebecca thoroughly enjoyed that and I got some of the nicest, natural images from the shoot then. Whilst the family interacted beautifully together and kind of forgot I was aiming a camera at them!

Time flies when you are having fun and just like that our hour was up and it was time to go home.
