Jill’s Wintertime Family & Animals Photo Shoot

May 4, 2018 | Family & Animal Photo Shoots

I first met Jill at the Liverpool International Horse Show over the New Year where she booked me to come and do a Wintertime Family & Animals Photo Shoot. I headed out to the family farm last month and spent a wonderful morning working with Jill and her husband, their wonderful children, three ponies, a couple of tractors and even a few cows!

I absolutely love working with families and this shoot was no exception! We literally couldn’t have been luckier with the weather, it was a perfect cloudy but bright day with the sun making an appearance every so often and the temperature pretty decent for that time of the year. If I could ask for perfect weather for a Photo Shoot, that would be it!

I had a rather unusual location scout on this occasion… I always like to take a look around a property or location before getting my cameras out. It allows me to make a plan as to what outfits will work best in the different locations and gives me a chance to spot any overlooked spots which can often make fore fantastic locations. Never before has a location scout involved being driven around in a Quad buggy by a 7 year old though…! We flew around the farm in minutes, finding all the best spots and only feeling ever so slightly nervous that I was being driven by a (very proficient!) 7 year old boy!

Jill wanted a mix of family photos as well as photos of her two girls and herself with their ponies and of course a few with everyone; family, horses and tractors involved!

We kept it simple to start with before slowly adding in the tractors, then the horses and even managed a few with some cows and diggers before heading off with the girls and their ponies for a bit of a walk around the farm.

They were an absolute delight of a family to work with, the boys, whose enthusiasm Jill had worried slightly about before the shoot threw themselves into it and my young Quad chauffeur turned out to be quite the show stealer!

I really love the results from this Photo Shoot and hope you enjoy the selection from this Wintertime Family & Animals Photo Shoot as well!

If you are interested in a Photo Shoot for your own Family and Animals this Spring or Summer please do take a look through the rest of my website and get in touch with any questions or enquire about a date.

Until next time,
