A BLISSFUL SUNDAY AFTERNOON WITH THE LEVINE’S | PREVIEWS | THORNDON COUNTRY PARK | SHIANNE MERCER PHOTOGRAPHY.

When Hannah messaged me a few months back saying her family are looking to get together and have a family session and would I be interested? Of course I said yes!
I have known Hannah since college as we both studied photography together so it was definitely an honour to be asked to photograph her and her family. After the arrival of her beautiful niece Sophie, they all decided it would be lovely to get some memorable photographs together for keepsakes.


As I already knew Hannah and knew she has the most beautiful doggies I said she should bring them along, who doesn’t love animals on a family session, they are family too! Plus a bunch of adults, 3 dogs and 1 baby will be easy to photograph right? Yes, yes it will! Hannah and her family decided on Thorndon Country Park for their session which is a beautiful country park near Brentwood in Essex. Great for the dogs to have a run around too which is a must!


Sunday afternoon I was greeted by Hannah, her Mum and Dad, Brother Matt and her other Brother Daniel with he’s wife Jess and daughter Sophie. It really was a fun filled family session with a whole bunch to photograph. Lets not forget their dogs, three beautiful Alaskan Malamute’s; Tikaani, Skye and Teyah that obviously made it into the family portraits.

We explored a big chunk of the country park, over looking a big lake and into the woods. Some big portraits on a broken down log and lots of baby cuddles of course! Ending with a little baby feed and some howling from Tikaani. It was brilliant!


Thank you for an amazing family session and hope you love your previews!
