After booking a family session with me a few months ago, last week I had the pleasure of finally meeting Janine and her family. We had arranged to meet fairly early in the beautiful Calderstones Park in South Liverpool. The forecast had PROMISED me two dry hours before a downpour later in the day. That's the last time I trust you BBC weather. Within about 5 minutes of meeting Janine, James, Hannah and Ben the heavens opened!
It didn't dampen our spirits, however, and we still explored the walled, hidden gardens Calderstones has tucked away behind the playground. It was also a fantastic excuse for Hannah to don her fabulous yellow mack and wellies and go jumping in some muddy puddles, Peppa style!
We found a little bit of shelter in the ice-cream parlour where, little did I know, there is a book exchange complete with comfy armchairs hidden upstairs! After the rain passed, what better way than to celebrate with an ice-cream and grab some super cute messy pictures! And Ben's first taste!
It was a really lovely family session and Calderstones is such a beautiful park.
Can't wait to go back with my own kids!
