Family Photoshoot – Steampunk

We like to be different and we like our family portraits to be memorable! They used to be stressful as I desperately tried to get everyone in shot, smiling, still and happy – now we all get involved and make it fun!
We’ve gone for unusual locations like disused railway tracks or a bluebell wood, but never tried dressing up for them, so last year we planned a Steampunk shoot. It was great fun procuring clothes (we were already half-way there style-wise) jewellery and props, and the children delighted in the weaponry (though the swords and daggers are not ours).
Our location was my parent’s old barn and New Year’s Day was blessed with rare, golden sunshine amid our rainy Winter. It was, admittedly, very, very cold and by the end I could not feel my fingers, but we had lots of fun!
