Adventure session | Snowball fight | St Albans documentary family photographer

Jan 31, 2019

I can’t tell you how excited I was leading up to this photoshoot, the weather forecast was snow … we hardly ever have snow, so when we do, the likelihood that it coincides with a client booking is almost non-existent. The mum was slightly concerned that her teenage children might stand around looking awkward … you know how teens operate, lying on the sofa, playing on phones, monosyllabic conversations, a photoshoot would not be at the top of their chosen activities, especially not early on a Saturday … so she had decided that we should go out and about for our 1/2 day session, and I challenge you to find anyone who doesn’t turn into a big kid when snow is around. I literally did a little happy dance when I woke up to a blanket of snow covering the ground, it wasn’t deep but there was just enough … and it absolutely lived up to my expectations, in fact it couldn’t have been more perfect. Everyone had a (snow)ball (excuse the pun!) and completely forgot I was hanging around in the shadows … well almost forgot, they did gang up on me at one point and simultaneously all started throwing snowballs at me … the cheek of it!

I am a family photographer based in St Albans, available for family and newborn photoshoots in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and London … and further afield if you wish!
