It's always special when a couple continue to share their life's journey with you as a photographer. Back in March I took this image on the staircase at Ashridge House in Hertfordshire and was delighted to be asked to photograph the bride again in December for a series of pregnancy portraits. I knew I wanted something a little more natural for the December portraits but being December we also needed to ensure there was an indoor option, just in case. Burton Court in Herefordshire was a perfect setting. The skies around Leominster, and so Burton Court, always seem to have the most amazing colour and sunsets, you may think that if there's a sunset it happens everywhere but I can tell you that I'm often frustrated at certain venues where the sky seems to simply fade away without any drama. Not something that tends to be noted on a venue's website but perhaps worth asking your photographer when considering venues!
