"It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside." ~ Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib

After what felt like an eternal winter we have sprung into summer overnight. Spring has been left out completely but I'm not complaining, as the weather is glorious.  It’s a perfect time to bring the camera out and take beautiful photographs of the kids.  A good tip to remember is that the best time of day to photograph is in the early evening, just before the sun sets.  This is the most flattering light for family portraits, as the light is soft and ethereal.  It does get a little tricky later on in summer as this precious ‘golden hour' is past the children's bedtimes.  But right now it is just about manageable.  

While the sun is out I’m taking every opportunity to get photographs of the kids on our little weekend adventures in the Surrey countryside.  It’s a perfect time for everybody to get that dusty DSLR off the shelf and put it to use.  Or if thats too intimidating for you, just use your phone.  It’s making the memory of these precious days that matters most.  xx
