Ever felt like the presence of some people warms you up to have an amazing time? Well, that pretty much sums up this lovely morning at the Foxton Locks, Market Harborough, Leicestershire where I often meet couples, families and individuals for their photographs. The Locks deserve an entry in their own right but this one isn’t about the location. Instead, it’s about people, friends old and new who have made the morning really warm on this cold winter day.
I’ve known Sally for years now ever since we first met back in the day when I lived in Desborough. We were neighbours back then and shared moments of happiness and those less pleasant, as you do… I was then even more so joyous when she got in touch to ask for some photos and a catch-up.
We were very lucky on this morning amidst the rainy week we’ve been having and the skies opened for us beautifully. Then there was something special about it since her partner brought his two daughters, also twins, just like Sally’s. I’ve never shot a set like that and because of this I was even more engaged in the challenge of portraying the moments and laughter they shared. And boy do they know how to have a good time! The laughs came easy as we walked along and chatted along the way.
I loved every minute of it and I can only hope it isn’t the last time I see them all. They have been so easy to spend time with and I’m looking forward to showing them the printed album with the images captured. Some of them can be viewed below.
Till next time! And Merry Christmas!
