Bristol Family Portrait – Vassels Park

In this gallery you can see a selection of photographs from a family photo shoot in the stunning Vassels Park in Bristol. Even in winter the park was teaming with beautiful trees and colourful flowers.

The family had a happy day and we enjoyed the inspiring nature in this unique place.

I love on location natural family portraits, being a natural light photographer I love nothing more than taking a trip to the local park or woodland with a gorgeous family to capture them having fun and smiling.

All life stages can be photographed by Liberty Pearl Photography from maternity to 100-year-olds’ birthdays! I am comfortable shooting any age: babies, toddlers, children and adults, for both full family and individual portraits.

Grublin Games – Waggle Dance

Build a beehive, collect pollen and make honey – be efficient, be strategic, outmanoeuvre your opponents! Waggle Dance is a euro-style worker-placement dice game for 2-4 players, designed by Mike Nudd & published by Grublin Games Publishing. To put it on the market, we were booked to photograph the prototype ‘Waggle Dance’ game in the unique community run social enterprise pub BreadandRoses in Plymouth, Devon.

It was an interesting afternoon and the models had great fun exploring the new game. Everybody was getting hooked on the game and learning how to us cunning strategy needed to win the game.

This amazing new board game will only be funded if at least £15,000 is pledged by Sun, Jun 29 2014 11:59 PM BST.

If you would like to back this game please visit the Waggle Dance KickStarter webpage and make a pledge.

More info about the Waggle Dance game…

Waggle Dance is a worker placement dice game where your bees take the form of dice… lots and lots of beautiful dice.  There are two phases to the game, a Day and a Night phase.  During the Day, each player rolls their bee dice and takes turns assigning their bees to different actions within the hive.  Each action enables the players to improve and grow the hive, taking them a step closer to their ultimate goal – HONEY!!!!  Once the Day phase is complete, the night phase triggers and each of the actions are resolved and the hive grows.

It’s up to you how to achieve this… Do you focus on pollen collection, increasing your bee population, expanding your hive, seeking favour with the queen or splitting your resources to accomplish all of these?

Whatever you choose, the natural world is a competitive environment and you can be sure the other players will be looking to maximise their advantage so choose wisely and be efficient!

Jeremiah’s Journey – A Jolly Toddle at Buckland

On Sunday 11th May lots of families took part in our first ever Teddy Bear Toddle at the beautiful Buckland Abbey. The sun shone as families met and registered for the 2 mile walk. Jeremiah was on hand to say hello and we even had Cinderella there to greet our little guests. The Toddle was completed at individuals own pace, gently strolling through the beautiful woodlands laced with bluebells, the cows popped over to say hello and the sheep were very excited to see everyone passing through!

Using the Explorers Map the children could take part in a Teddy Trail with questions to answer teddies hidden along the route. On completing the walk every child received a goody bag complete with their own certificate and lots of other treats.

Although we experienced a few showers it didn’t dampen the mood as the children enjoyed a picnic and dancing with Cinderella, there was also colourful face painting and a raffle with lovely treats to win, including these delicious cupcakes by the Cheeky Cake Company.
