Autumn family photo session Clyne gardens Swansea

Anderson family photo session

I should have shared this session long before now.  But I’m taking the line of better late than never because I can’t just not share these photos properly on here!

A while ago I met with the Anderson family for a relaxed family photo session in Clyne gardens here in Swansea.

Sue and I actually used to work together and it was amazing to get together again and to spend some time with her and her lovely family.

We all went for a walk around Clyne gardens and took in the gorgeous autumn colours.


Once the children had had a chance to get used to me and my camera I took some individual portraits of them.  If you book a session with me you’ll see that I love getting a mix of photos, with some where you’re looking right at the camera and some where you’re not.

At the time of our family session in Clyne Sue’s daughter had only just started walking independently.

It’s such a lovely stage when they’re just walking and are still just that bit wobbly and unsteady on their feet.  I’m so pleased Sue and her husband have these photos to help remember that time in their family’s lives.

After a while of walking though she got a bit tired, so went to have cuddles with her daddy in the baby carrier.

I have such a soft spot for baby wearing and really love it when families include it in their session.

I would actually love to build a whole documentary session around baby wearing so please do get in touch with me if this is something you’d be interested in!


Towards the end of their session the whole family got together for some relaxed, natural family portraits.

There was no saying cheese and smiling for the camera here.

Just some fun, some cuddles, maybe a few tickles and some beautiful natural expressions and interactions.

Have you visited Clyne gardens in autumn?  

It’s well worth a visit, with so many interesting species of trees turning beautiful shades of yellow, orange and red.

Actually, it’s a stunning place to walk around any time of year and is the perfect setting for a relaxed family photo session.  There are winding paths and little bridges to explore, the admiral’s tower to climb and gorgeous flower displays in the warmer months.  The bluebell woods in particular is so pretty and a lovely spot for some lifestyle family photos before heading off for a walk or a play.


If you’d like this kind of relaxed, un-posed photography for you and your family in Swansea, then I would love to have a chat and arrange a session with you.
