A family autumn shoot

We can't just can't let go of the autumn. The colours, the crispness of the leaves under your feet, the endless walks. We were so happy when Donna contacted us to photograph herself, her sisters and extended family for a last minute autumn shoot. They were due to have one last year, but a last minute trip to the hospital for her nephew put pay to that! We were so happy when they got back in touch to follow up on their family photo shoot.

We went to our favourite autumn haunt, Forest Fawr, which is based near Castell Coch. We keep saying it, but it really is a fabulous venue for a walk with the family and perfect for photographs. The wooden statues as you walk through are mesmerising and it's just a lovely spot, at any time of year, but particularly in the autumn.

We met at the car park where there's a wonderful wooden dragon sculpture, perfect for a family photo, then walked along the roadside until we got deeper in to the forest. There had been a lot of recent rain so it was quite muddy, but it didn't stop us picking some spots for our pictures.

Loved loved loved doing this shoot, being able to bring the vibrant colours of all the trees to life again and photographing such a lovely family. Great end to the season.
