Meet Emma. She was only 15 months old when we did this shoot a few months ago, but already has an adventurous and wild heart as you will see in the following photos. We went to a Warwick woodland called Hay Wood and were surrounded by tall trees with their freshly dropped leaves. Emma and I had a lot of fun playing with her favourite toys, not forgetting her constant companion, Bear.
The idea of this shoot was to capture this little lady in her element - her own, newly developed imagination. I did the whole shoot with my 70-200mm lens so I was able to be far enough away not to distract her. As you can tell by some of the angles, I was still finding leaves stuck to my clothes when I got home from lying on the ground!
I hope you enjoy seeing our shoot below. I’ve been told Mum, Dad and Grandparents absolutely love the photos and have proudly displayed them at home. They’ve also updated their phone backgrounds with these lovely shots – which at the end of the day is why I do what I do, knowing people are enjoying my work on a daily basis is the best reward!
So here’s Emma’s little adventure with Bear in the woods…
A little girl called Emma was looking for the perfect friend and went searching in the woods.
Some helpful fireflies lit her lamp and guided her through the dense forest.
She looked here,
she looked there, and finally there he was! A lovely soft teddy bear!
Emma and Bear took
Baby for a little walk in the pram – they even did some watering.
Next it was time
for tea – there was plenty to go around and Bear loved it.
After tea it was
time to find Mummy and go home. What a lovely day in the woods!
