1+1=2 – Cowbridge Child Photography

Deep in the woods in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan I had the pleasure of meeting a family I first met about two years ago. This was not a chance meeting of course but a scheduled play date to introduce me to their newest arrival; a new (and energetic!) little brother to play with and adore. 1 + 1 = 2.

It was a lovely opportunity to go out and photograph on my new home turf. We moved just a couple of weeks ago into the beautiful Welsh countryside just outside of the market town of Cowbridge. It’s like having my own on location photo studio right on my doorstep! So many great settings that I burst with excitement each and every time I leave the house. I digress…

Back into the woods … We collected pine comes and leaves, we explored and I did much running after a sprightly 15 month old. The light was perfect and my models were too. Who needs more than an old battered apple crate and a couple of pine cones to make a Saturday afternoon just perfect?

I started off by photographing this little beauty. She was a pro. We’d met before.

He just couldn’t keep away from the action and I wasn’t going to argue. But my oh my he could move FAST!

He had the kind of smile that lit up the room (or forest in this case!). That’s what I love about kids. There are no pretences. They are who they are and when they smile like this it make you smile back – you just can’t stop it.

Our time was done. I’d used up all my goes. However many games you play you don’t get long with little ones before they decide they’ve had enough. We packed up our treasures and walked back through the woods. Of course we had to look for some fairies along the way but it’d be rude not to wouldn’t it?

Until next time,
