Feeding the Squirrels and Ducks

My first family photography session this year involved a lot of running around chasing squirrels and ducks.

We had been waiting a while for this session but the day finally came, and despite the freezing cold and the fog we had a great time!

The location was one of my favourites, Hartsholme Country Park in Lincoln. I adore going there, especially with children in tow, because the squirrels are just too cute, and they are super friendly! I always suggest bringing some monkey nuts/peanuts in the shell as the squirrels go wild for them! And of course there are all the ducks, so bringing something for them is great too!

I always love starting my sessions here with a walk through “Squirrel Alley”. That’s what i call it anyway! The light is always amazing and the tree tunnel adds some beautiful texture to the images – and there are, of course, the squirrels to keep us company!

We then went on for a little walk until we reached the lake, where these two brave little girls went straight up to the ducks and geese. There were birds flying everywhere which made for amazing photos!

We then continued on our explorations and did lots of running around and making silly faces.

I loved photographing this family who recently moved to the area and enjoyed discovering this new place to visit – I am sure they will be back there soon!
