My sister and her family have moved back home having lived in Cambridge, UK for 4 years. It’s great to see her and again and I thought that I would practice my family portrait skills further, so I suggested a casual family shoot near their house. It just happens to be near where I took another family photo session, but it’s such a peaceful area that I couldn’t resist.
I made sure I had my flash modifier to smooth the light, and got to work.
It was early morning and a little cloudy so I was able to pump up the flash and bring the ambient light down quite easily. I do wish that I used a larger aperture to blur the background a bit more, but I’ll remember that for next time.
Ruby is a little pocket rocket and is so excitable, but tells you what’s what when she needs to which is totally adorable.
I will do more family portraits soon, so stay posted.
