Family Update: Our Wintery Family Photo Shoot

Despite living in Dubai and spending most of our times in flip-flops, we have always loved winter as a family. In fact, I’d go as far as to say it’s my favourite time of the year in the UK. I love wrapping up warm, seeing frost painted on the lawn in the morning, hiding underneath blankets in front of log fires in the evening, and soaking up every second of the lead-up to Christmas to get into the festive spirit. So having three weeks in the UK at this time of year has been a real treat – and I wanted to do something to remember this time; seeing the boys in their winter warmers, splashing in puddles, and enjoying the festivities.

A family photo shoot was the perfect way to remember our trip home. And when I saw the beautiful  images from a recent photo shoot by Brian at Focused Images of a friend Emma’s family (and hearing that the price was just £80 for 2 hours, plus all the images on a CD) it sealed the deal, I quickly booked him in for a weekend just before Christmas.

Now my husband hates photo shoots. I would have to drag him kicking and screaming into a studio  to get some family shots – so a natural shoot in the park was the perfect way to do it. We had a really fun morning at Dunorlan Park in Tunbridge Wells taking the pictures (in fact, the boys weren’t really aware of the camera, it was just a morning in the park for them). The service afterwards was amazing – Brian ran around delivering my CD, getting the prints done that we had chosen as Christmas presents in the most impressive time (you don’t have to order through him, but they are great prices if you do). I really do recommend him if you want to capture some memories in 2015 – and at just £80 per shoot, I don’t think it comes much cheaper. I think the images speak for themselves, so without further ado, here are the pictures he captured. Scroll to the end for contact details.
