It’s January and the forecast was hail. Kathryn and James had booked a shoot with their son Jacob and the family’s dog Henry but when the day came she thought the weather wasn’t going to hold out. But I don’t get deterred so easily and reckoned it looked quite promising so I persuaded her it was worth a try and we headed out to Roundhay Park. They showed me an area that I hadn’t been to before with a fantastic folly with steps, stonework and wonderful archways. I think I’ll be going back with other families as it made a great setting. Jacob was a very patient little model and enjoyed practising for being famous. Henry already seems to think he’s famous and couldn’t be bossed around. The hail never materialised and the sun kept shining.
