Mothers Day Treat

Hiya to my wonderful viewers, as you all know I am a working mum and I love it, I work from home, travel all around and do all this working around my precious little man and most important muse. To celebrate a national event we decided to do mothers day in style.

  1. I got to stay in bed past 7am
  2. I didn’t have to do anything
  3. I had dinner cooked for me
  4. Baby dressed for me
  5. we went to the park and we loved it
  6. I got to take my camera
  7. we played, we ran, Caleb found amazing sticks (he loves sticks Obsession at the moment)
  8. I had a candle lit bath ran for me.
  9. I relaxed and didn’t have to put baby to bed
  10. I had an early night and got to watch what I wanted.

Mothers day rocked, wish every other day was like this or at least once a month I’d feel amazing right?

While relaxing in the bath (which I only get to do every other month) I really thought about what I got and where I have come in the last couple of months and this post is a massive thanks to my wonderful family, amazing friends and you fantastic fan base and customers. I am truly blessed you to have all there standing behind me 100%. Ill never forget what you have done and what you will do to continue to help me grow this business.

After a great day on Sunday I couldn’t help but also drop a photo

Pinktastic Bella

DSC_0797 copy1

Id like to introduce you to this bubbly, adorable, cute, funny and so sweet little Isabella, when her and her family arrived this little princess was fast asleep, and for anyone to be woken up and woken up in a strange place you’d kick off right or at least put up a fight, nope not this little bundle of joy first thing she wanted to do was give me a big hug. Now I’ve never met bella before but she just fitted right in, she’s the kind of baby that could put a smile on anyones face.

A couple of weeks ago her nan contacted me wanting a surprise cake smash shoot, she had it all planned. She thought she was so kunning and smart until she crumbled and brought Bellas mother along for the shoot and believe me her mother came prepared, I believe she brought her whole wardrobe. it made my day! with the cake smash you get three outfit changes, the normal shoot, cake smash and splash shoot, but i’d happily add in more outfits to one set if you couldn’t decide and everything little bella wore just flowed. Plus I’m a sucker for headbands.

This shoot was amazing it ran so smoothly from beginning to end, bella was amazing in front of the camera such a born natural. she was an absolute pleasure to have in the studio and her reactions to the mess on her hands has me smiling today. It normally takes me a few days to fully edit a set of photos but I had so much fun editing these I honestly can’t wait for them to receive their USB loaded with fun and bubble images of this precious baby girl.

Beach Adventures

DSC_0161 copy

So on 11th of March me and my partner decided to take our little man down the beach for the day, he has just started walking so thought it would be fun to get him out for a few hours and practice walking on different textures, he loved it.

I had just had my new lens through a 80-200mm so wanted to practice with it while I could. I love this lens, it lets me focus and out focus the things that I want giving beautiful shots. But I do need to prefect my shots more and practice manual settings while outside and in different sets as a few things like the sky are washed out.

On the plus side I had a fab day out with my boys, my little man had a blast on the beach and I got to use my camera in its glory.

Until Next time.

Bubble Trouble

DSC_05581

This is the gorgeous louie he’s 19 months old and i’ve got to say such a little character, about a week ago his grandfather messaged me after seeing the cake smash offer and was interested in having the Splash scene only, I offered him the two sets, plus USB for £35 and he jumped at the chance. I found out on the day that he had been looking for this similar shoot for some time because Louies mother had one done when she was little and he was after something similar to one compare the both and also have the two contrast images on display.

The shoot started out great, he was friendly, confident, running around, playing he was an absolute delight, he’d toy with my emotions a lot by turning his back and smiling, beaming from ear to ear. he turn back to the camera with little cheeky smile, he really did know what he was doing. between the chasing the bubbles to throwing the balls he was having a great time, and so did we all.

Once the first shoot was over his Mam Amy decided to strip him off, and I got the bath ready. we’d already got him to sit in it and he fitted perfect everything was going to plan. The bath was run the scene was set, but little louie wasn’t having none of it. He refused to sit down and he was getting camera shy, I couldn’t believe it. We were all devastated. After calming him down we managed to sit him next to the bath and get some lovely shots in. Although it wasn’t exactly what they were after we did manage to work with what we could and get something similar and surprisingly they looked absolutely fabulous.

Towards the end of the shoot, my little man decided to make an appearance and louie took to him like they’d been friends for a life time, he was so sweet, so friendly towards Caleb it was amazing to watch. Ive loved having louie in the studio and his mam and bamp were such a delight, we had great fun, great stress and unbelievable Images.

What more could we have asked for.

Meeting Baby Ethan

16996226_1473772562656264_8979752449604088437_n

Id like to introduce you to this beautiful family, Mother, father and their gorgeous son Ethan, this stunning little man was born a month early although he came out a very health 6 pound weight he sadly had to spend a whole week in a baby unit but came out fighting strong with I must say unbelievable lungs.

We booked the shoot in for the 4th of March and we were all very excited to see the finishing product. when they arrived Ethan looked so cute and so piece full, until he got in front of the camera that was, then he weren’t having none of it. Katie his mam had told me he was suffering with an upset tummy and wasn’t feeling himself and sadly it showed is most photos.

We managed to get a few peaceful shots in between the dummy and feeds, but unfortunately we had a lot of pictures with him very unsettled. although I don’t think he liked my studio very much, he is extremely photogenic. He looks amazing in front of the camera and this little man has made me so broody. he was a delight to have in front of my lens and it was a pleasure meeting his amazing parents.

17190661_1473773172656203_2723104636091582687_n

Due to the circumstances and a very unsettled baby, we didn’t manage to get all the shots we needed to complete the shoot they were after, its understandable being a mam myself, new place, very unsettled baby it can be difficult to remember my name; let alone what I wanted to do that day so being me I have offered them all a mini reshoot, just get everything they were after.

This business means a lot me and my customers mean a lot to me, it isn’t about making money its about giving people the memories, the support and my very best work and if it means taking my time and offering a reshoot because a day was unpredictable then I will 100% honour that. I really enjoyed shooting this family, and katie has really made my days from our chats on social media to spending those short hours shooting this beautiful little man, I honestly couldn’t wouldn’t question having them in my studio again.

More from this wonderful family coming soon. Watch this space. 

Until Next time.

Photography Upgrade

I started this photography hype in January 2017 its only been two months and I can’t get over how far I have come, in such a short time. With Shoots flying everywhere, actually going outside my home and creating an amazing customer basis this amazing Journey has already got me to where I want to be.

Below is a look into where I started and My last shoot to date.

First Shoot

15697651_10158082011955624_4731936862250430572_n

Last Shoot

dsc_0066

Just the development within the images says it all, the first lot I had no clue about editing, I had completely discarded light and position but with the shoots today, I take into account of light, position, stability and print. Accessing the settings on the camera and developing my ability through the lens, this last month has already been an amazing experience and I can wait to progress further.

Until next time,
