A Dog Walking Couple Portrait Session at Buttermere

Babs, Mark & Bella are a seriously beautiful trio full of fun and laughter. Babs & Mark met while studying at university and have been rather inseparable ever since! The plan was simple, to meet up at Syke Farm tea rooms and then venture down to the lakeshore for a Dog Walking Couple Portrait Session.

The lake district in the only way it knows how, decided to play along with some rain and rolling clouds down the valley. Ironically I had just spent a few hours on a shoot in the next valley, bone dry and sunny! That said, we loved the atmosphere and stuck to our original plan. Well, ok so we waited and had some cake in the tea rooms but... it would just be rude not too?!

We walked and talked about their work and the funny things in life alongside their upcoming wedding day which they had only just booked a few days before our shoot! As we ventured on we played some word games and had a good giggle at the funny things in life. Sadly, our original plans to visit the lakeshore were cancelled as when we reached the gate it was locked shut so that the resident sandpipers can nest in peace. These ground-nesting birds are particularly vulnerable to being disturbed by dogs and people.

As always, respecting the lake district and its native animals, alongside the farm animals that call it home is a must in my books! We carried on and found a cool little bay area of shore that was all fine and dandy to climb down to.. so we did!

Anyway, check out the photos below and If you would like to have a couples portrait session with myself, or even have me photograph your big day, then please do get in touch.
