A Fun Energy Filled Simons Woods Family Shoot with the Awesome Jain Family

“You got some great shots!!! Thank you so much :) We had such a fun day. You really put us at ease.” – Deena

Every now and then I get asked by one of my wedding couples if they can bring along their children for their engagement session (part of their wedding package). My answer is always a resounding yes. Engagement sessions are included in all my wedding packages because they give me a chance to get to know the couple so that on their wedding day I’m in a better position to capture the story of their day. If the couple have children then as a big part of their lives I want them to be there too.

A Simon Woods Family Shoot

This was my first time visiting Simons Woods (based near Sandhurst and Reading). The woods is really quite beautiful. Amazing canopy above, ponds, bridges, bluebells, it has the lot. For a young family it is the perfect playground.

For this family shoot my job was made easy. The children were buzzing with energy, running around and exploring everything in sight. Deena & Andy did a great job of keeping up. Often the best photos come when the family forgets there’s a photographer’s even there and just interacts naturally with each other. This allows me to capture moments that are unique to them and their relationships with each other. This was certainly one of those times.

I don’t no about the Jain family but by the end of the session I exhausted.

Can’t wait for Deena and Andy’s wedding later this summer!
