I was so pleased to be the professional photographer for this gorgeous family from Weybridge in Surrey. The couple both work in the motor racing world so they chose the Brooklands race track for their shoot! I thought this was a great idea as it is a really special place for the family to relax and have fun on the weekends.
I was excited as I’d never been there so I had a bit of a history lesson too! Brooklands was a 2.75 mile motor racing circuit and aerodrome opened in 1907 and was the world’s first purpose-built motor racing circuit as well as one of Britain’s first airfields. Sadly the circuit hosted its last race in 1939 but today part of it forms the Brooklands museum. You can clearly see the sweeping banks of the old race track in the pictures!
The kids were great, and we had a really fun time! I had a lovely email from Mum Hannah after:
“Thank you Nicola for your patience, creativity and professionalism. Your advice and expertise throughout the whole process were greatly appreciated. Not only do we have those precious family moments captured in so many beautiful photos, but also wonderful memories of a morning that all four of us enjoyed! Your bag of toys and distractions kept the kids thoroughly amused and smiling at all the right times – not an easy task but you managed it! I will be highly recommending you to anyone considering a family photo shoot!”
Thanks Hannah, you are very kind, it was my pleasure! x
