Portraits in a pocket of urban nature

We were blessed with a beautiful blue sky for this morning family portrait session with Jo, Jules, Skye and Jasmine. We could sense spring in the air at last. 

The family took me to their local park, which felt like a little pocket of wilderness despite being in the middle of Hackney.

"I tend to think of family portrait sessions as a bit cheesy but this was nothing of the sort... I really liked that you gave me lots of guidance before about what we might like to wear, favourite things for the girls to play with, where we may like to go - so that we all felt relaxed... Jasmine and Sky were incredibly comfortable with you which meant that they were happy to be photographed. Usually Jasmine refuses to smile but she smiled the whole time you were with us." - Jo.
