I've lived here since I was an egg!

March 18, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Farming is not the easiest way to earn a living! But farming folk are pretty special. Their farm is their workplace, their home and where their families grow up and learn to be responsible for others from a much earlier age than urban children. A farmer's son only leaves a gate open once! A farmer's daughter learns very early to nurture young animals.

So it was with great anticipation that I approached a photo session with the Claire, Rupert, Gabriella, Archie and Tilly. What warm, welcoming and generally lovely people they are. Their farm is a great credit to them too - the farmyard is clean and tidy. Their dedication to the farm is immediately evident.


Despite the chilly, drizzly day we headed outdoors. First we had a wander around the farmyard and I met Claude the cockerel and his harem. Claude has been on the farm since he was an egg! Then we went for a walk to the far end of the farm during which the family took up my challenge to throw some shapes!

Back to the warmth of the farmhouse kitchen for a welcome cup of tea, and Tilly updated her secret diary. Then each of the children allowed me to take some grown up portraits. I'll never ask anyone to "say cheese" !

It was a very enjoyable afternoon with a lovely family! Family photoshoots are fun and the photographs will become family heirlooms as children grow up and animals come and go.
