A Family Shoot at Fountains Abbey: The Mars

Have I mentioned that I love where I live? Oh yes, only every bloody Blog post! Not only is York itself beautiful, vibrant and increasingly diverse, but it’s also close to so many brilliant shooting spots around Yorkshire.

This week’s featured shoot to place at the stunning Fountains Abbey on a blustery but sunny Sunday morning a couple of weeks ago. We got out pretty early so avoided the crowds and the rain!

I photographed the Mars family a couple of years ago when I was with bump and since then they’ve had another new addition too! It was brilliant to be asked to do a family re-visit shoot and to catch up again. It was Helen’s last day before returning to school from maternity leave: a special way to end it.

Arthur was a little star for the camera and hasn’t Hector got the most scrumptious cheeks?!

There are so many exciting backdrops, nooks and crannies at Fountains Abbey that I could happily shoot there all day! Would be delighted to go back for another shoot there any time if anyone fancies it!

Here are some best bits!
