Family Shoot at Inglewood Manor
Vicky and Andrew Crosby chose to do their family shoot at Inglewood Manor, a beautifully preserved Edwardian Manor House in Ledsham, Cheshire, as this was the venue where they were married 10 years ago. We must give special thanks to Martin Helps Operations Director at Inglewood Manor for kindly allowing us access to the grounds.
These days the Crosby’s are a family with 7 year old Ben and 2 year old Arthur, both of whom really enjoyed the family photoshoot.
10 Year Anniversary Present Idea
For an anniversary present Andrew let Vicky choose between a spa weekend away or the photoshoot and Vicky decided that capturing this time with her family was important. A wise choice, documenting your family history and creating keepsakes for yourselves and your children is so important. The spa weekend can wait for another time!
Family portraits are so fun. We know it’s tempting to just have your children photographed whilst you watch the other side of the lens but it’s always more fun when mum and dad are included and it’s lovely that Ben and Arthur will one day have these images to remind them of their childhood.
The Beautiful Grounds at Inglewood Manor
We always find that engaging our families in play creates a relaxed environment and provides some fun. The Crosby’s didn’t need much coaxing, it’s clear this family like to relax and enjoy one another’s company. We set our shots around the beautiful grounds of Inglewood Manor (there’s 38 acres of them!)
At a family shoot at Inglewood Manor there’s really no need for posed shots. The tree climbing, worm finding, shoulder carrying, stick finding, dad wrestling images we got really showed the personalities of this loving family who seemed very much at home in nature.
This resulted in beautiful, authentic high-quality images that we know Vicky and Andrew were thrilled with. Happy Anniversary to you both and here’s to the next 10 years! (Andrew, please don’t make Vicky wait that long for a spa break!)
