My favourite location for children's portraits has to be Coombe Country Park. I've shot here a few times now, and apart from the fact its 5 minutes from my front door, the sheer number of potential portrait locations within easy walking distance from each other are a photographers dream. The possibilities for photos with different looks, backdrops, lighting and mood really are endless.
Coombe Country Park is situated just to the east of Coventry in the Warwickshire countryside, and houses the Coombe Abbey Hotel which is an amazing wedding venue in its own right. It can get very busy on hot Bank Holiday weekends, but most of the time theres plenty of space, and unlimited time to find all the spots with the right light and backdrop. And you really are spoilt for choice. There's acres of woodland, as well a landscaped gardens, a large lake, and lots of beautiful features such as bridges, hidden alcoves, and little footpaths with pockets of light coming through the trees.
The best way to show just some of the possibilities with this place is with a real photoshoot. All of the images below are from the same session, which was a leisurely stroll around the park with the amazing Evie for around 90 minutes. If you would like to arrange a portrait session at this amazing location, simply get in touch and I'd be more than happy to oblige.
