This session with Benter, Egbert, and their little boy Israel was an absolute joy to shoot. We met on a bright and sunny November morning, despite the sun being out there was still a definite chill in the air! Witton Park in Blackburn is a place I’m very familiar with, having spent many happy hours with my family there. Between the big open spaces, multiple playgrounds, woodlands, and pump track there’s something for everyone.
Benter and her family have come from Kenya so this kind of park was a new experience for them, from lions to squirrels! For this session we met at the car park off Tower Road and wandered over the bridge and into the woodland around there. It’s amazing how many different backdrops you can get even when you stick to a small patch! Of course with it being autumn we also had beautiful reds, oranges, and browns surrounding us too.
