Lymm Dam, Cheshire Family Photo shoot
This was my first time at Lymm Dam and it was for Lindsey and her family’s Cheshire family photo shoot. As soon as I set off for Lymm it started raining and I mean proper rain, by the time I met the familes on the car park, it was pouring down. There was no way back now though as this family had come from three areas of the country to be together. The photo shoot was a present for Lindsey’s mum’s birthday who wanted some more photos of the grandchildren.
You have to take whatever Mother Nature throws at you in this job and as we all set off from the car park into the nature reserve I did wonder what we had let ourselves in for. Luckily, I never go anywhere without my camera rain cover and it earned its money today. The children weren’t put off either and everyone was in good spirits as we started our walk. The woods provided some shelter from the rain and amazingly, after about 20 minutes the rain started to ease. Even more amazingly, the sun came out!
Relaxed and natural family photography
After 90 minutes of trudging through mud and climbing up the sandstone rocks, which are around 250 million years old, it was time to head back to the cars and say our goodbyes. A chance for everyone to dry off and then head back to our corners of the UK.
Returning to Lymm Dam as a photographer
What a fantastic morning we had and it was a pleasure to capture all the memories for these families. I can’t wait to return to Lymm Dam again for another photo shoot. The gallery below is just a selection of photos from their day.
