Last week we had the first crisp bright morning of the winter – at long last after all this rain! After all the recent flooding here in the valley, I suggested meeting up with Katherine, James and Matilda in Bristol so that we could do her first year shoot with plenty of space for her to run around without falling into puddles! It was amazing to think that in just 12 months she has gone from a beautiful tiny baby to a gorgeous, happy and confident toddler and really lovely for me to have been a part of that.

Regular blog readers will know I am a big fan of the waterfront for portrait shoots and Matilda loved it too – having a great time exploring and keeping us all on our toes as she ran about! I love taking photographs of children where they can have fun and be themselves – to me that’s what it’s all about.

Here are a few favourite images from their session:
