As a fellow photographer, I was honoured when Beth asked me to photograph her and her family!

Beth decided on Bolton Abbey for the shoot. Not only is it halfway between our houses in Harrogate and Clitheroe, but just so happens to be one of my favourite places to photograph! I’ve been going to Bolton Abbey ever since I was about 3 years old. I like to think I know just about every nook and cranny, and the best places for photos too!

Sorry to be dramatic, but the morning of the shoot was just breathtaking. It was the first time we’ve had a heavy frost this winter. The leaves were bright red, and it was just absolutely stunning against the frost. Luckily the sun was shining and it wasn’t too blustery!

We had a bit of a wander around the Abbey, and it was rather amusing to watch Beth attempt the stepping stones in suede knee-high boots! It really was such a lovely morning, and a such a pleasure to meet Beth’s family.
