Delapre Abbey in Northampton is a great place to explore with the family and totally free too get in. We were accompanied on our adventure by the wonderful Lisa from Wildgoose Photographics and had a fantastic time.
Lisa is a Mummy of twin girls with a passion for photography. She is extremely talented and super friendly so when she offered to photograph our little family I was thrilled. She let us choose the location and she met us there for the shoot.
The day was so cold but there was a sprinkle of magic in the air and the sun came out just as we arrived at the Abbey. We decided to wear neutral shades but as Lisa recommended we added a splash of colour to our outfits and as you can see in the photo's the colour really helped the pictures pop.
Ted loved running around in the woods and we soon discovered he was a model in the making once he settled into having his photo taken.
Lisa made us feel so comfortable and gave us suggestions of where would be a good place to capture a photo. We ended up with a great mix of natural and posed pictures which really capture our family enjoying special time together.
Lisa finds her models are more comfortable when they are in places they love and that is a perfect way to capture beautiful natural moments. I couldn't agree more! We felt so relaxed and Ted had a lot of fun which he wouldn't have had in a stuffy studio being posed into abnormal position.
Lisa's shoots start at just £75 for a Mini Shoot (1 Hour) which I think is plenty of time to get some great pictures. She will then put 20+ of your high res images onto a disk for you to keep and share with friends and family. She does offer printing options which you can check out on the website but she also gives you the freedom to use your photo's as you want to.
I love the personality she captured in our shots and she really caught Ted's inquisitive nature. We had an incredible morning and despite the cold we wouldn't have changed a thing about it!
