Celebrate Fathers' Day with some special Family Photography in Oxfordshire

Men are often reluctant to get in front of the camera but Fathers' Day is the perfect time to encourage the family to together for a relaxed shoot.  Summer is here (well, in theory anyway even if the temperatures are currently well below par!) and the great outdoors makes a wonderful setting.

These images I took last year of my own family - its easy to forget to capture them when I spend so much time shooting other peoples families!  I had been searching for a toy aeroplane to use in some of my nursery children's portraiture and unable to find what I wanted my father-in-law made me a lovely red wooden plane.  It was exactly what I needed and so we headed out in our 1965 mustang convertible to a nearby poppy field to grab a few pictures and make the most of some gorgeous late afternoon sunlight.

I wasn't sure what Jack would make of this wonderful old fashioned plane (he's such a technophile!) but he loved it.  Together with my husband they sat and played with the plane and then Jack became totally absorbed in his own make-believe world.  I captured some images which are so typical of him at this age and which I will treasure for a long time. One of these images is now framed above our bed and I'm delighted to say also recently won a silver award in the Image of the Month competition with The Guild of Professional Photographers.  Here are a few of my favourites:
