Hello to you all. I hope you are keeping all wrapped up and warm because it is so cold out there. The winter chill is definitely here. Today we have this very summery Boho Family Shoot to share with you today courtesy of Jon Cripwell Photography. It is such a beautiful shoot and Elsie looks so happy!
A few words from Jon……
I’d previously photographed Cara and John’s wedding last year, and we stayed friends through Facebook so I was aware of the arrival of little Elsie. Cara’s Dad had offered to buy her a family shoot for Elsie’s naming day – unfortunately things didn’t quite work out for that date so we organised a little lifestyle shoot. Cara bought some flower crowns from a florist and made the tipi herself, with some help from John’s mum. Then the heavens opened and we had to postpone! We tried again a couple of weeks later, this time with Cara making the crowns as well as everything else, and third time lucky we had perfect weather and some lovely end-of-summer sun.
The tipi shots were taken in Cara and John’s back garden before we headed to Sherwood Pines which is a favourite place for Cara and John. Elsie played to the camera brilliantly and was perfectly well behaved all the way through. I’m looking forward to working with them again!
A few words from the family……
When we decided on having professional family photos taken we knew it had to be with Jon, After having our engagement and wedding photos be so truly stunning and we definitely weren’t disappointed. For the photos at home I had made a no sew teepee using garden poles and a throw just tying the poles with string at the top and then pulling them out into the positions we wanted them wrapping the throw round and pinning behind the front two poles. Very quick and means it can be folded down and brought back out for playing in when needed! Elsie Aurora is a bit of a natural in front of the camera especially if she can play outside so we had to wish for good weather and luckily we got a lovely day plus with a bit of “wind the bobbin up” she can be easily pleased. Jon was great travelling to Sherwood Pines to finish off our shoot amongst the gorgeous outdoors and definitely Captured us as a family perfectly. We would always recommend Jon he is so naturally talented at capturing the moment especially those moments that we can treasure for a life time!
