Back in February, on a wintery Saturday morning, I joined the lovely Natalia and her absolutely gorgeous family in Bristol for a couple of hours. They had not long welcomed their newest arrival, who was just five weeks old at the time of their session, therefore is was super important to get some updated images of them as a family of four!
We started off in the lounge, which had the most gorgeous dark blue walls and a perfectly contrasting burnt orange sofa, I couldn’t wait to use it as a backdrop!
First though we sat and chatted over a cup of tea as their eldest daughter made herself comfortable on my lap whilst having a good look through my camera bag! She loved looking at the camera and all the other contents before deciding that my business cards were the best toy ever! I was also given a quick tour of the kitchen before being dragged back to the lounge!
Once everyone had settled into me being there I grabbed my camera and got to work.
Luckily a big group family cuddle was on the cards to start with, so I took my opportunity to get the family portraits whilst I could! Which was just as well as the novelty of that soon wore off! It was then followed by lots of tickling from both mummy and daddy, making for some gorgeous intimate shots for each of the girls with their parents separately.
We then headed upstairs to the nursery, it was perfect timing as the newest arrival had woken from her nap which meant I could get some images of her awake in her cot. There was also time to grab a few more family portraits before it was time for me to head off and leave them to it!
Here are a few images from our morning together . . .
