An Autumn Bibury Family Shoot …

This gorgeous Bibury Family shoot was just absolutely picture perfect!  The village of Bibury in the Cotswolds, is a quintessential English village with its super cute chocolate box houses and river running through the village crossed over by a series of very pretty bridges.  I have photographed numerous weddings in Bibury as the Swan Hotel is a very popular Cotswold wedding venue but I have not yet photographed a Bibury Family shoot. The reason for this is that as beautiful as the village is, it does get very busy with tourists and i was a little hesitant to shoot a family in this location, however, i am so glad a did and i would be happy to go back in the future for more Bibury Family Shoots.  I met this lovely family who had traveled all the way from the States to the UK and were staying in Bibury at the Swan Hotel. We met at the hotel  took  an easy walk through the village and got some really lovely candid shots along the way.  Once we got to the row of Houses famously known as Arlington Row, we stopped there for a bit and then made our way up the hill and came across the most incredible field with such beautiful light. It was quite late in the day at that stage, around 5pm , and the sun was low in the sky  setting over a field of sheep.  This American family had actually mentioned they would love some photos of some ‘English sheep’ in a field and wow, did we get just that!  The view was just beautiful and i got some of the nicest photos from the shoot up on that hill. The light was simply perfect…warm and low creating that gorgeous backlight that i always look for.  Once the stroll through the sheep field was ticked off , we headed back down the hill and towards the Swan hotel.

This Bibury family shoot was super easy. Relaxed and no pressure. Just a happy family in beautiful light.  If you are looking for a Cotswold family Photographer, please do get in touch and i’d love to hear from you.  My shoots are really as easy as a stroll through an English Village!
