I spent a lovely morning with this family in their gorgeous house.  We decided to make use of the beautiful light in one of the bedrooms which is where we got some of my favourite shots.  In these type of situations, I don't pose mum and dad.  Instead I go out of the room and tell them to get comfortable, then when I come back I snap away!  I find the type of shots I get this way are more relaxed and natural looking; my favourite.
