With another heart surgery on the cards for Jessica in the near future, capturing magical family moments feels more important than ever. We recently had a wonderful family photoshoot from Zoe Liddiard Giles Photography to capture some of those magical moments.
Zoe is an outdoor children’s and family photographer. She is based in Essex and covers Essex and Suffolk. Her photography style is all about capturing fun outdoor moments. Most of the photos taken during our photoshoot are of the girls playing and exploring. Moments of just having fun, and being completely unaware of the camera. Candid captures of the wonderful innocence and joy of childhood.
As well as the candid shots, we also had a short, semi-posed, session. The girls changed into a couple of beautiful vintage-style dresses with pinafores which Zoe had brought with her. I absolutely adore the photo of my girls cuddling each other taken in this session. It is my favourite photo of the two of them together. The love they have for each other is so apparent. Their personalities are also perfectly captured in this shot. Sophie, my little bundle of mischief with her cheeky grin, giving her sister a big squeeze. Jessica, very much the big sister in this shot, with her sunny smile and a cuddle for her sister, that might be less effusive than Sophie’s but is every bit as loving.
The vintage-style dresses and pinafores are also handmade by Zoe. She has a variety of handmade children’s clothes and accessories available on her One foot down a rabbit hole Facebook page. The dresses and pinafores that the girls wore in our photoshoot are the Rosemary and Matilda range. Prices start from £20 for the dress and £20 for the pinafore, depending on the fabrics used.
Zoe is a friend of mine from my university days. As well as a fab photoshoot, it was lovely to catch up with her and her husband again and to meet her little girl for the first time. I love the way children make friends so easily with each other. The three girls had so much fun together in the woods, at the playground and splashing in the stream. We all throughly enjoyed our day out and it is wonderful to have such beautiful photos to look back on from it.
Zoe very kindly offered us a free photoshoot to help us capture some family moments in the run-up to Jessica’s heart surgery. I would like to thank Zoe for a lovely day out captured in such fabulous photos. She has not asked or expected me to write this post. I loved the photos so much though that I wanted to share a few of them with my readers. If you are based in Essex or Suffolk and are looking to capture some magical candid childhood photos, then I would thoroughly recommend checking out Zoe Liddiard Giles Photography.
