Autumn Leaves are Falling
Autumn is fully upon us people and my does it look so pretty, albeit it super cold! The weather has significantly shifted in one week, it's crazy what a difference 5 degrees can make. I've started putting on the heating at night now and sleeping in jumpers and socks. Regardless, autumn is my favourite season! I find the changing colours of the leaves and trees breath-taking!! I love crisp mornings, walking through Holland Park (where these pictures were taken) on my way to work. Sunny autumn days are heaven and I sit around, fantasizing about how beautiful it would be to get married on such a day...I clearly have too much time on my hands lol. Autumn also reminds me of growing up in boarding school and all the fun things associated with this time period. As such, I decided the channel that school girl energy for this shoot. I do look a bit like I am in school uniform and if I'm honest my Sixth uniform when I was 17 was very similar. I did try and make it a little bit more grown up and sophisticated with a tailored coat (though I do worry that I might have ended up looking a bit like I should be a student at Hogwarts!!).
I so loved taking these pictures as I just got to frollick around in the park and I was genuinely happy doing so. Can you tell from the photos? I felt like a big kid, running around and throwing leaves about. I encourage you all to have a go too...it's liberating, I promise (though I did get some strange looks from passers by...what's new eh?).
Here some other things I love about autumn:
- Cosy jumpers
- Fluffy socks
- Cuddling under blankets
- Hot drinks
- Fireworks and bonfires
- Crisp air (especially after a muggy summer)
- Orange and yellow fallen leaves
- The promise of a fresh start with a changing season
