We weren't short of activities to keep the kids occupied at the Shields' house - painting Christmas cards, checking on the garden worms (no fear from the children there, unlike me), baking rock cakes and building a cardboard den for a pet rat (that's if Will has his way!) - phew! But it gave me plenty of opportunities to capture this lovely family at their most natural.
Jody wanted to photograph "Will's cheeky smile" and Olivia's love of performing, and I think I've managed to capture something of their unique little personalities in these photos below.
Thank you again to the Shields for a wonderful hour of snapping your gorgeous family! (And I even managed to get a few shots of Andy the dog, an indispensable member of the family too!)
