This shoot is for you if you are looking for a fun & relaxed family shoot at the beautiful gardens at Dewstow, Caldicot, South Wales. Where both children and parents simply had a lovely time with each other. There was no stress. No sitting for hours trying to get everything perfect. Just lovely photographs to remember that special time in their lives. When little hands were held by big ones to steady new walkers. Where stones were the thing to collect at every opportunity and when jumping into Daddy’s arms was the best thing ever.
I met Izzy & Dominic a few years ago at Dom’s sisters wedding, which happens to be up there with my favs of all time. This is the second time they’ve been to visit and booked a family shoot with me. It was such a joy to see how their oldest had grown and to meet their youngest who hadn’t been born last time we met.
Izzy & Dom love photographs of their family just enjoying being together. With natural smiles (though there is the odd cute cheesy grin), hand holding and hugs. It’s about remembering the details and the special time spent together. We decided on Dewstow Gardens as it has a range of different landscapes, beautiful gardens, fairylike grottos and open garden areas. It is perfect for the girls to play in and not get bored. We just let the girls explore, climb on trees and run around as they pleased. We stopped for snacks to make sure no one got hungry and when they had finished eating, took some more posed family shots. We stopped when they got tired and we knew they had had enough. It was such a joy of a day. I can’t wait to see them again in a year or two!
