Spring sunshine, bright daylight and fields of yellow flowers make portrait photography a little easier than the grey winter months, but my two little ones still like to make it a challenge for me! We were on a weekend drive to the farm shop when I spotted the most gorgeous rapeseed field. There’s no way we could drive past withouot stopping for a few photos against the most perfect backdrop. I suggested a quick run around the field (avoiding the farmer’s crops, of course) and Mia and Joe were very willing to join in!
They looked for beetles and bugs amongst the flowers, which was the only way of persuading them to keep still for a few seconds.
Whilst they are such different little characters, their wild and free nature is very similar. They are at home running around a field, creating games of chasing and hiding. I always encourage this in both of them; a love, understanding and respect of nature. It seems such an important part of their learning, and if nature fuels imaginative games then they are even better for time spent outdoors.
I have also been joining in with the Siblings Project on Instagram at @siblings_project . Come and take a look if you’ve not joined in already!
