Children's portraits in W. Sussex

The last truly wet day of summer laid waste to any plans we may have had to run round the extensive gardens of this W. Sussex house, but fortunately we were blessed with huge rooms and moody window light. The five children were on typically boisterous form when all photographed together, but individually they were perfectly calm and very engaging company.

A thoroughly enjoyable morning spent exploring the house looking for attractive light and appealing backgrounds

All shot using natural light on Canon 5D Mark II with 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8 and my favourite 85mm f/1.2
