Natural Family Photography | Harrogate Photography in Valley Gardens

When Aileen contacted me a few weeks ago, she had just relocated to the UK, from America, with her husband and three daughters.

She was keen to have some recent pictures of her family that showed them starting their new chapter over in England and requested that we schedule ASAP, to catch the gorgeous golden autumn colours.

I suggested that we meet in Harrogate’s Valley Gardens; a location that I now know well, from photographing lots of lovely weddings at the Harrogate Pavilions. It also sat almost halfway from my home in Ilkley and their new abode, up in York.

Aileen and crew turned up to the shoot perfectly dressed. I often get asked for clothing recommendations, in advance of shoot bookings…so much so that I ran a blog on this a while ago now. The earthy greens and greys worked so nicely with the autumn colours, but as a group they looked nicely co-ordinated, rather than ‘matching’.

Here are a few from our crisp autumnal morning, in Harrogate. Great to meet you guys. Enjoy your photos! xx
