Family Photoshoot ~ Woodlands

This is part one of this shoot ~ We spent the morning walking in the woods with this lovely family a few weeks ago.  Am so pleased with the photographs, its a great location with a fab family.  More in another location to come.

TOP TIP: Splitting the photoshoot between locations gives you a broader range of photographs.
