A good friend of mine asked me earlier in 2016 if I'd be interested in doing a little family shoot for her, and her sisters that they could then offer their mum as a gift for Christmas (hence the delay in posting this!).
I've known Jo and her husband Kieran a few years now (since attending their wedding as a guest), they are a great couple who have a wonderful sense of humour and a real positive outlook on life - they really are the kind of people you want to be around.
When Jo asked me I was delighted to get involved; her family are an awesome bunch and we had a brilliant time out and about. I'd suggested Cannock Chase, as we are all pretty local and its a great backdrop for the family - also, there's just something I love about the woods; the colours and family feeling you get, it's fantastic. Once away from the distractions and gadgets you get people together and communicating - although we did have one bit of tech with us, as Kieran was bringing along his drone for a little run.
As I said, I loved the session and spending time with them was so much fun - even if I caused a little trouble by suggesting the leaf fight :)
