Such fun with sisters in the studio

I had such fun with these three sisters in the studio

We had some images to get for their model portfolio and I also thought it would be great to get some images for mum too.

Here are some of my favourites of the three beautiful, funny and talented little girls.

Both the agency and mum was very pleased with the photos.  Here was mum’s response.

Wow! They look beautiful!
I’m holding back tears!
Sorry don’t know why they made me so emotional! 

I love reading messages like this, it really makes my job even more special.

 

Four Generations Location Session

Happy 2018 to you.  I hope this year is abundant in love, health and happiness for you and your family.

Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart for being part of this amazing photography journey with me.

Let’s start this year with this blog

In todays busy lives it can be quite a job to get the family to get together so a photo shoot can be like a celebration.

I love nothing more then capturing the love and laughter of family members.

I really enjoy location photography sessions.  I think it is because I love my family so much and when I see a family come together maybe for the first time in a very long time it makes me smile to see happy faces and know these pictures will be treasured for many years to come.

Location shoots are perfect for these types of sessions either in the local woods or at the family’s home.  I find everyone relaxes more it becomes more like an experience rather then a shoot.  It is a lovely feeling to know that the family may even make a day of it and spend some quality time together after the shoot.

Here are some of my favourites from a recent summer shoot

Stewart & Chloe get married in the wedding pavilion at Easthampstead Park

The wedding pavilion at Easthampstead Park is another lovely upgrade to the already stunning venue, probably one of the best outdoor ceremony venues around.

I was so happy to be asked by Stewart – a manager from Easthampstead Park to photograph his marriage to Chloe.

I have know Stewart for over a decade now through both working at Easthamstead Park and he was also my wedding manager ten years ago when my now husband and I discussed our wedding plans to hold our reception at the venue.

With a 50m aisle, Chloe’s guests where seated awaiting her arrival with the couples music playing in the background in preparation for their wedding ceremony. The Wedding Pavilion at Easthampstead Park is stunning and Stewart and his new wife both looked stunning too.

The sun was out and Stewart & Chloe got married in the wedding pavilion.

It was a lovely day, full of laughter, tears and celebration and we even drove to a beautiful spot near Bray for more photographs before I left the wedding party as they went to favourite venue to eat followed by dancing all night at the Ritz.

Stunning outdoor Wedding Pavilion at Easthamstead Park

Here is another beautiful wedding in a gorgeous Victorian mansion which now includes a stunning outdoor Wedding Pavilion.

I recently was lucky enough to photograph a fellow photographer’s wedding at my favourite venue Easthampstead Park.

Simon and I are both recommended suppliers for the venue and have known each other for many years as we both advertise at their wedding fair twice a year.  Simon is a really lovely man, loved by all the staff at Easthampstead Park and I was very honoured when he asked me to document his special day.

I loved that my first outdoor wedding at the venue was to photograph Simon and his beautiful wife Claire’s wedding and was very pleased that the weather was perfect for them and their guests.

It really was a day of smiles, laughter and celebration in the sun.  It was really amazing and lovely to see how Simon had all the emotions just like any other groom, despite the fact he has photographed loads of weddings.

The four beautiful bridesmaids are Simon’s and Claire’s daughters and where a pleasure to photograph.

I loved editing these images as there was so many happy images of the wedding day, it made me happy to edit them.

Here are lots of my favourites from the day.

A gift for our mum – a location photography shoot with the grandchildren

All the way across the world lives my only brother together with his wife, three children and lots of pets and animals.

As a surprise for our parents we decided on a photo shoot with all the grandchildren together for them.  We would then put the best images in an album and get them a large professionally framed image too.

It was during a family holiday at christmas just before a meal I spent a short amount of time with the kids having fun and taking various images of them around the huge garden.  Nan and granddad ended up in a few images too which was not planned but worked out perfectly.

I honestly cannot think of anything more special that my brother and I could have got for our parents as it is not often all the grandchildren are all together and their is nothing more special then children.

If you are still deciding on what to surprise your mum or wife to this Mother’s day to show them how special they are why not consider a gift certificate for portraits either of the children or why not make it a day out and have mum in the portraits too or the whole family and the pets 🙂

And for those mums out there is does not hurt to give a hint.

Make mum happy with a thoughtful and easy gift.

A gift package will include a 1 hour family portrait session with a framed image.   It will take place at your home or a location nearby.  Gift certificates can be sent or collected.
