“I sustain myself with the love of family.”
― Maya Angelou

Late this morning we went on an absolutely lovely (bar the wind and rain!) walk with a family for a photo shoot. The location was Hengistbury Head in Bournemouth, a really popular ‘spit’ of land that has some fantastic walks and scenery. The area holds lots of memories for the Butcher family so was a perfect location for their shoot. Hopefully we’ve captured some permanent memories for the three generations that were there today! The Butcher family are very photogenic and even the little ones spared a few smiles which has given us some lovely images to work with. Below are a select few shots that have been processed with some light filters. There were too many photographs to share here!

Huge thanks to Shane and David for lending their faces to today’s blog. However it got dark fairly early, something which I wasn’t prepared for – twilight by 7pm! So out of the numerous shots I took, tripodless and without fiddling with the settings too much, only a few made the crunch. However  less words and more photos today…

We popped to a local park for the setting, it’s usually quite nice especially when the weather is sunny. However the dry Summer seemed to have congealed the lakes a little bit into something that looked very horrible, even the ducks were struggling! So we avoided that!

Shane has been a good photographic subject before, he started my people and portraits portfolio and is now the face of the front page of my website and facebook banner. Which by the way has been updated and looks quite awesome so if you fancy taking a look head to http://facebook.com/kathryndawsonphotography.

So that’s about it for today. 99 days until Christmas which means just a few more than that until this challenge is officially over – it has in some ways, gone incredibly fast but in others, painfully slow!
