Newborn Photos – Jenny

January 27, 2010

I am really excited to share these photos from a recent shoot with my niece, Jenny. You may remember the post from my sisters maternity shoot, well Jenny is now nearly 2 months old! I took these when she was just over 4 weeks, but things have been so manic here lately that I haven’t had a chance to post them until now.

Jenny – or Jelly Baby as my girls like to call her, was a natural in front of the camera – following my lens with her gorgeous marble like eyes. She took quite a shine to the squishy, blanket filled basket…and then promptly peed all over the kitchen floor when we tried to get some shots without the nappy! I am sure a little splash back got me on the leg, but hey, she’s my niece so I’ll let her get away with it!


You have seen the sneak peek of their gorgeous Christmas wedding – now here’s the slideshow…enjoy!

December 12th was a cold, crisp day, but the sun shone down on Catherine & Michael as they became husband & wife.

Their beautiful ceremony took place in the grand surroundings of The Guild Hall, Windsor.
Afterwards, Catherine & Michael made the decision to have some quiet time together, and a chance to have some portraits taken of just the two of them. It was a lovely thing to do – to take time out after the ceremony to just be alone, but also a great opportunity to shoot in a different location. They chose the Eton Rowing Lake as the backdrop, which made for some stunning & dramatic portraits with the heavy skies and friendly swan who decided to join us!

The wedding celebrations took place at the Burnham Conference Centre, where the guests feasted on Sausages & Mash – the ideal comfort food for this chilly December day! I have to say that both Catherine & Michael were troopers in the cold weather & did a brilliant job of looking warm in their photos!

Thank you both for choosing me to document your special day, Catherine – I know you can’t wait to see your pictures, so I will stop rambling – here are some of my faves…

Catherine had the most awesome blingin shoes…

And some gorgeous Vivienne Westwood accessories!

Simply stunning…

The Guild Hall, Windsor…

I hope you have both enjoyed your sneak peek – the rest will follow shortly!

Laura – Maternity Session

November 11, 2009

My little sister is only 3 weeks away from her due date, so we took this opportunity to do a quick maternity shoot. Nothing formal, just Laura doing her own thing – flicking through baby books and relaxing with some yoga. Her pregnancy seems to have flown by so fast, I know she will appreciate looking back on these and being able to show them to her daughter when she is older.

It was a gloomy day outside, but I loved the light in the bedroom. The bedside lamps cast a lovely glow and looking at these few shots makes me feel all warm and cosy inside : )

Here is the slideshow of the lovely Plant Family and their fun portrait session…

Plant Family Session

October 28, 2009

I had a great time with this lovely family. We played in the woods, crunched the golden leaves under our feet & made huge leaf piles for Lydia to play in. It was a joy to capture these family memories on such a relaxed shoot. No fuss, just a walk in the woods on an autumn afternoon. Stacey and Daniel looked great in their brightly coloured clothes, and this really made a bold statement and showed off their personalities to a tee. So if you are thinking of having a family portrait, remember…don’t be scared of colour – it works!!

Stacey, Daniel & Lydia – Thank you for a lovely afternoon, I hope you enjoy looking back at these memories…

Baby Eva – Storyboard

September 29, 2009

I love getting the chance to shoot babies & kids – with my camera, I might add!
Recently, my very good friends Petra & Richard asked me to take some portraits of their 6 month old daughter. Here is the storyboard I designed for this little cutie pie’s parents. Look at these expressions, sooo sweet!

Here are some of my faves from Ami & Neil’s special day, all wrapped up in a little slideshow.

These slideshows come as part of the Wedding Package, they are a lovely way to showcase your wedding photos to family and friends or to simply re-live your day! The DVD comes packaged in it’s own special case, with individually designed front cover and insert booklet (more photos of that to come!).

Ami & Neil – I hope you enjoy your slideshow and a copy will be making it’s way to you very soon!

Ami & Neil – Wedding

September 6, 2009

Recently I had the great pleasure of not only witnessing the marriage of my friends Ami & Neil, but also documenting their special day for them as well.The day kicked off at Ami’s parents with pink champagne, bacon rolls & lots of laughter. The bride was calm and quietly excited as her bridesmaids helped her into her wedding dress and slipped on her shoes.

Shoes, by the way, are a HUGE deal for Ami, she is a shoe-aholic! You will notice that shoes played a major role in the wedding day from the gorgeous diamante heels Ami wore – right down to the ‘shoe inspired’ ┬áseating plan. So I know she will appreciate these next few photos…
