Relaxed and fun twins family photo shoot in Himley Hall Park, Staffordshire
July 2019 Filed in: Portraits | Families
My first ever photo shoot with the double trouble mischief makers, twins Ollie and Finn was for their very first birthday party! I’ve been lucky enough to be asked to capture pictures of them a handful of times since then, documenting how much they’ve grown up in that time. The most recent occasion they were in front of my camera was to mark their fifth birthday! Things like this really bring home how much time can fly, and although I’m biased, it emphasises how I think having great photos of family helps cement all those happy memories.
Even though they’re twins, their personalities have developed into two very distinct loveable little characters. Finn is a contemplative and curious young man, and Ollie is the more cheeky and boisterous of the two. If you follow our blog regularly and have seen some of our other family portrait shoots then you'll know they are geared towards capturing families do their own thing, and letting personalities shone through.
The day before their fifth birthday, we met at Himley Hall Park along with mums Kelly and Claire, for a stroll around the lake, some adventurous tunnel exploring, and a spot of enthusiastic duck feeding. That’s both the ducks AND Ollie and Finn who were enthusiastic! We rounded it all off with the boys playing football and frisbee. Running around after little dudes on a family photo shoot certainly helps keep me fit, and is a great excuse for me to skip joining Toby on our next boot camp session 😜
Finn and Ollie’s brilliant personalities made it easy to capture some awesome photos, so much so it was difficult for me to narrow them all down to a smaller selection to share with you. Personal favourites have to be when I tried to explain to the twins about the tradition surrounding kissing gates. My explanatory skills were obviously lacking, when they thought I’d meant actually kissing the gate itself. So mommies Claire and Kelly had to give an example, much to the boys’ amusement.
Twins mean twice the fun for a family photo shoot - have a look at these pictures, and I’m sure you’ll agree!
