Family portrait session at Bolton Abbey

This extended family got together to celebrate Anne’s 70th birthday with her two daughters’ bringing their husbands and children from Skipton and Guernsey for the occasion. We went to Bolton Abbey to capture all 11 of them. It had been a lovely Autumnal week but we had to make do with slightly gloomy weather although the rain mostly held off. Bolton Abbey had a smattering of pumpkins around it for Halloween so it was a bit spooky and atmospheric. All the children (and the adults) were really cooperative and we had lots of fun getting some informal contemporary style shots along with a few more traditional group portraits at Grandma’s request. Here’s a preview for them before I get back together with the Skipton contingent to show them all:
