The Smith Family
Chalfont St Giles

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of heading to Chalfont St Giles, a beautiful little village just outside of London to photograph the Smith Family. Luck had been against us in pretty much all the planning of this shoot (terrible weather, poorly children!) and on this day, as soon as I stepped outside of the train station – it began to rain. The plan had originally been a lovely family walk – a great way to capture everyone together – but alas today was not the day! Instead we opted to head indoors and try a shoot in the house. It was a little tricky with the grey clouds hiding the sun and limiting the natural light – but it doesn’t matter because we had such a ball! This set of images perfectly captures the energetic, fun and bubbly vibe in the Smith household.
Inside, I got to capture gorgeous, laughing photographs of the girls playing with their dad, and everyone cuddling up on the sofa and telling stories. I absolutely love the peaceful pictures, all together reading through books, quiet and calm.
So rain, I am pretty sure we had the last laugh – because just look at how sweet these pictures are. I love them!
