I love heading back to Northumberland for Christmas and catching up with my school friends and their families. Last year I joined Harriet, her husband Dave and their gorgeous children, Sophie & Abi, on a family outing to Beamish. Wrapped up warm in some impressively festive hats, we were lucky to enjoy a clear crisp winter day with blue skies while they rode the beautiful old carousel. Then as it started to get dark we ducked into Santa’s grotto. The girls made special ‘elf scarves’ and then studied the magical fairy lights as we waited to see Santa. It’s always a magical moment and I loved seeing their excitement and awe at meeting Father Christmas himself – I think that wonder is something very special to capture – and I always love to see Santa! Harriet – thanks for letting me join your Christmas outing and giving me the chance to create these Beamish family photos!
