Last summer I booked Alex and Reece’s wedding for this August. Shortly after Alex booked in a family session for her little family and Reece’s Sister Amber and her family too. It was the sweetest thing.

I hadn’t yet met Alex but talked a lot online around booking her wedding so it was lovely to meet her and photograph her family before her big day.

We decided to meet at Thorndon Country park which is a location I have photographed a sweet handful of family sessions. It is so beautiful and has the best spaces for exploring and photo opportunities. Starting with some portraits of the boys who are cousins on the ground with a blanket, then onto family fun which is just the best!

Unfortunately Alex and Reece’s wedding has been moved to next year but that means lots more time for planning and it’ll be as magical as ever when the time comes round which I cannot wait for.

I love the dynamics of a family session from portraits to fun! Group shots and lots of laughter. It really tells a story of the day and whole experience which I absolutely adore!
