I have been photographing this little girl since she was a newborn. She turned 5 and her mum asked me to join them at Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne so I could take some photos of her on their special Birthday trip. The weather was amazing and there were still lots of leaves on trees so we had lots of fun together. The mum left us to it so we explored the park together and enjoyed the session. We saw the penguins and the lions whilst taking some images in between the different enclosures. I knew what I wanted to capture but this little girl knew what she wanted too… she found a little fence and wanted to climb it. She wanted to dance so I let her do it. She wanted to throw the leaves and we did it. My family session is not about cheesy posed photographs, my sessions are about having fun. This girl definitely gave me everything she had and I can safely say that the mum loved the images.
