I met Archie and his mum at Hardwick Park for his photoshoot. Archie has just turned 1 and managed brilliantly on a very windy day, his little eyes were streaming but he kept a smile on his face! We finished taking the pictures in the nick of time as the heavens opened! Archie's red top added a great splash of colour to his outdoor photoshoot. At the end of the session we dived into the woods to escape the wind (and the rain) to grab a few shots with the flash.
Last week I had a bit of fun in Hardwick Park trying to take some pictures of us all as a family. The results were a little hit and miss and involved a lot of running about after I set the timer on the camera, keeping everyone in focus and positioned while I ran back to join them proved to be tricky. However, everyone was very patient, especially the little fella, despite the freezing cold. I was quite pleased with the results and it gave me a chance to try out some new post-processing techniques.
