I had a fun filled morning photographing the Bishop family in Pullborough West Sussex a couple of weeks ago. Sian, who lives in Australia(!) had contacted me a few months ago about a shoot to capture her family and her brother’s family for a surprise present for her Dad’s birthday! Sadly she wasn’t offering for me to go out to Oz for the shoot, but rather she was over visiting for the summer (which she is finding rather chilly!). We had a Skype call to sort out all the details so were all set to go! We had agreed to go fishing/dipping in the stream in the quintessensially British village of Abinger Hammer but the weather was dreadful on the morning, so we changed our plans and decided to shoot down at Sian’s parents house where she was staying, thereby blowing the surprise element but ensuring we could at least get some shots under cover! I really didn’t mind the change of venue, in fact it worked out very well because I love the fact that these memories were created in their garden so it’s somewhere so special to them, and great that we got some beautiful shots with the grandparents to enjoy once Sian heads home.
We had a great morning, and only a bit of light drizzle so were still able to make good use of their lovely garden and fab corn field next door! We had lots of giggles, and I am so pleased they were so thrilled with their portraits. I had a lovely handwritten note from Sian this week saying ” thanks again for the wonderful photos, everyone is thrilled with them”. They have ordered some beautiful framed prints and I can’t wait to hand them over to enjoy for a lifetime.
