FLORAL FINE ART FAMILY SHOOT
Some of you may recognise this gorgeous family from previous Little B posts! We’ve already been so lucky to share Jessie’s maternity shoot and Flora’s newborn shoot, so when adorable little Augie arrived in September we had our fingers firmly crossed that mum of two, and super planner-stylist Jessie would have something up her sleeve for us! She didn’t disappoint, teaming up with one of our favourite fine art photographers Ashlee from Taylor Barnes Photography and Georgia from Westwood Design adding some beautiful floral details. This shoot completely sums up Jessie’s approach to parenting, calm, peaceful and utterly beautiful…
From Jessie –
We are a brand new family of five, if you include the pooch, which we do! I’m a work from home Mummy wedding planner, and couldn’t be happier with the organised chaos that is my family life! We live in Cheltenham in the beautiful Cotswolds.
Why did you book a family shoot? I had a newborn shoot when Flora was born and desperately wanted to do the same for Augie, except it was also important for me to capture the love between siblings too – right now they are the bestest of friends. I also wanted to have precious memories of Flora captured throughout the years, she’s a whirl of activity right now and it felt nice for us all to be a little more still for once!
Did you add any styling to make the shoot your own? My beautiful and talented sister Georgia of Westwood Design created our floral crowns and covered her sweet nephew in blooms! I chose to dress us all in ethereal ivory and white, and we were blessed with glorious sunshine following a week of Autumn rain.
Where did the shoot take place? The shoot took place in my home and our local park where we spend many days playing all year round – I love the wildflowers grown by the local community there. Flora likes the ducks!
What does being a mum mean to you? It means much more love and laughs in my life than ever before, but also more tears and much less sleep too! Truthfully, I just want both my children to always feel cherished by me, but to grow into confident and kind people into adulthood.
What are you most looking forward to as they grow up? I’m most looking forward to welcoming my adult children home once they have flown the nest, for long dinners around a well-worn table with plenty of delicious food and wine to accompany much memory sharing. That, to me, is happiness defined.
