Autumnal Family Photoshoot in People’s Park, Tiverton
Nov 2012 13

One family…one set of twins…lots of leaves and a Roxy!

The beautiful People’s Park in Tiverton, Devon was the location for a recent family shoot.

With three strapping lads and pet dog Roxy, it was decided that our studio would be a little cramped for this commission and a location shoot was the order of the day!

With mother nature’s colour palette at it’s very best, we headed out to the park one November morning. Mum, Tracey wanted informal photographs rather than the traditional formal portraits so this beautiful golden setting was perfect for a bit of autumnal fun involving the whole family.

Well this is England and therefore as blissful as the setting sounds, of course the weather had to play it’s part, summoning up big grey shower clouds periodically. So we weather-watched and took advantage of the park’s 360 degree shelter whilst it was raining to produce some slightly grungier images of the three teenagers.

Luckily for me when the clouds did break…they were replaced with beautiful soft sunshine that cast long shadows on the leaf covered ground. Ideal conditions for an autumnal photoshoot so we made the most of the features in the park to create some unusual portraits. My aim being to produce a gallery with plenty of depth and a sense of fun.

I tortured the boys for as long as I dare in between showers and then concentrated on mum and dad. This couple have a natural joy for life and I wanted to capture that essence in a very brief couple’s shoot.

The results are shown below and I hope you enjoy this very seasonal photoshoot. Location sessions can offer something very unique to a family and often draw out personalities in a more natural way than can be achieved in a studio….if I could guarantee this light on every shoot I would consider selling my Bowens studio lights!
