There are a few things that need to happen for a family session to be as beautiful as you imagined, but one of the biggest things is light. Us photographers are always telling everyone how much it matters so I'm saying it again - it is 100% worth risking your children's moods in order to grab this kind of light! Even if little Johnny normally sleeps at 7pm, one day, where he is too interested to be that tired anyway, won't hurt. Most of the time, they are absolutely fine, and I take advantage of the novelty of it all! So with the benefit of these guys being friends, I convinced them to drag out their two boys as the sun was setting to this little spot in Wallington and we got these. The light was beautiful, the noses were snotty, the pants got dirty, but you can't tell me you can't see the love here, and that's all that matters.
