Teddy Bear’s Picnic

As we are now in the gloomy month of January, with the short days, long nights, cold and we are all a little cash strapped; why don’t we take a look back to spring last year and some gorgeous March sunshine 🙂

In March, I organised a Teddy Bear’s picnic with a handful of local photographers, I say handful as there isn’t that many of us with children and really they were integral to be models on this shoot.

After weeks of trawling eBay for props, think bunting, bears and baskets, we were ready to go and shoot at the beautiful Highdown Gardens.

I had also been given some butterfly mirrors from friends last Christmas and really wanted to incorporate these in the shoot as well.

I feel like there is something missing… ah yes, the children!! 🙂

All of the props used were sourced from eBay or owned by one of the photographers, the cakes are from The Co-operative (mmmm cake!).
