I recently had the pleasure of taking some portrait photos of the Evans family. They decided to have the photos taken outside, on location at Chedworth Roman Villa, if the weather was up to it. A week of having fingers crossed for fine weather did the trick and we had a bright sunny day without too much wind. We used two or three locations around the grounds of the villa to take photos, which provided a bit of variety with posing. Although doing a photo shoot outside has some challenges, a positive is that younger members can move around and let off steam a little between bursts of photography. This helps keep them fresh rather than getting bored sitting or standing still for long periods. And with so many things in life, if the children are happy, everything else falls into place.
