I decided to use our whole garden for this years summer mini sessions... and I soon wondered why I hadn't before! We live right on the canal just outside of town. At the back of the house we have a large space with some lovely trees. During the end of spring/begginning of summer we also have some beautiful flowers. I've been so happy with the results, it's been the perfect setting. The mini session have been very popular and we've been so lucky the weather has been good for it throughout. My sessions are always held in the afternoon when it's a bit cooler. We've had a very hot summer so I made sure there were always plenty of water bowls about and I also only work in the shade of the trees.
I hope you enjoy these images as much as I've enjoyed doing them. All my models have been great and did such a good job in front of the camera. Nelly (above) had a very special session when we were joined by a family of swans!
Here are a few of my personal favourites.
