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.

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

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,

Cousin Fever

dsc_0024

On Friday the 24th of February I was asked to take photos of these two beautiful ladies. Rhianne is a good friend of ours and she asked me if I could do a shoot of her little girl, the night before she asked if her little niece could come along and I was more than happy to shoot the both of them.

I have known little holly for some years,  coming up to about 4-5 years now, Ive watched her grow into such a stunning young women, she’s absolutely glowing. On the shoot we talked about how well she was doing and the fact shell be going to high school this year I’m gobsmacked, still am to know she’s grown that much in such a short time.

Her little cousin is so adorable which came along with her on the shoot has an adorable attitude to match, she was full of life, full of laughter and jokes it was a pleasure shooting these two by themselves or together.

The amount of fun we had getting these to smile. I found when doing a shoot with kids involved its important to keep them laughing using things which they use on a day to day basis starting with selfies, then going on to getting them to loosen up, star jumps, spinning around just jumping. they make for great photos to.

Key words which they use on their normal photos to help (Smelly Socks) was there smiling beacon.

It was a fantastic day of Shooting and Id put these in front camera any day, thanks for making my afternoon ladies

Until next time,

Flower Power

dsc_0392

Id like to introduce you to this lovely lady Maya, a beautiful little princess and a little madam to match, I’ve known Maya’s mum Megan for awhile but we hadn’t really seen each other for some years but when I started this business; I put up an add offering free photos and she jumped to the chance. I’m glad she did, I got to catch up and finally meet this lovely lady.

When I opened the door she was so shy bless her and she point blank refused any photos we could offer her. She was more interested in watching paw patrol and blaze than she was standing in front of the camera, typical toddler behaviour. Unfortunately I was unable to get a sitter that day and Caleb came to the rescue, where ever I placed caleb Maya would follow very beneficial for me and her mam.

Although she was a bit of grump, a little shy. She was a blessing in front of the camera, it was great fun meeting her and seeing her mam, she’s welcome in my studio any day. she’s so adorable and loved every minute from planning, taking and editing these images.

 

Until next time

Cake Smash Surprise

 

To celebrate my sons first birthday I decided to try something very popular I’m sure you’ve all heard about a Cake Smash Shoot, how people love them for their little ones and how much fun they are.

This is a new style for me, from the different outfit changes, to the important aspects of each shot, it was probably the most challenging but the most exciting. It was so fun to do and watch, I dont think we laughed this much in a long while.

dsc_0305

The first shoot was him dressed in normal clothes using the one lettering for this to express his age, he was throwing the lettering around, giggling away. loved every bit of it.

dsc_0496

For his second shoot, we placed him infront of his cake, he was so funny sticking his finger in there one at a time so innocent like he didnt want to make a mess, we encouraged him smash the cake up, he found it so funny, to end the shoot we placed him on top of the cake which gave me so fantastic shots and it looked amazing through my lens.

dsc_0952

For the last shoot, we decided to place him in the bath this gave me the chance to have fun with the camera, all he did was splash and laugh and try and catch bubbles with his month. I think he was more excited about the fact he could have a bath in the living room than he was about me taking the pictures. The perfect way to tidy up all that cake.

All in all I can now understand why people have these shoots done, he laughed so much, and he was so well behaved whenever we try to take pictures of him, hes normally a nightmare trying to escape off the studio and trys to climb up the lights but this time he stayed there and just played, which give me amazing images to show my family and friends and you guys of course.

Until next time

Cheeky Chappy

dsc_0608

Do you have that family member who’s just adorable but is probably the most cheeky little monkey ever, well we do.

I’d like to introduce to this cheeky chappy, my little baby nephew Jayden James Hughes. he’s currently 2 but 3 this month and I can’t wait. His smile is to die for, his looks are amazing and he gonna be a right heart breaker when he grows old.

dsc_0543

During the shoot, I couldn’t get him to do much, he just refused. all he wanted to do was sit on the basket and smile, but looking over the photos, I actually got a lot of shoots I liked and we were very happy with the finishing touches.
He loved the pictures himself so I can’t argue with a two year old they know to much these days.

Until next time

Meeting Baby Kodie

dsc_0291

I’d like to introduce you Kodie Peter Iveson, a gorgeous 3 week old, with his stunning tinted green eyes a smile to die for and personality that is slowly starting to shine through.  He was amazing in front of the camera.

Kodie was born on the 9th of January 2016 although he won’t be three weeks while your reading this his first photo shoot was taken then, he was as good as gold, so peaceful and loving how could you not fall in love with him.

A few days before he was born I had the pleasure of snapping his mam and dad in a fabulous maternity Bump shoot. They absolutely loved the images I did they came back to me to shoot his first shoot.

Kodie’s Birth Story

Demi was rushed into hospital on the 8th of January she has been leaking for a few days and they wanted to exam her. she arrived at the hospital thinking it was a routine check up and then we all received the news that she was being induced.

They induced her that night and labour came thick and thin, as she has been up all night and her screams were scaring the other ladies on the ward they offered her the pethidine, which helped her sleep, around 6 o’clock she woke up in a lot of pain, when they checked her over she was in utter shock when they told her she was 8cm and ready to go to the labour ward.

During the birth she wanted to beat everyone up, we laugh about it now but 45 minutes later little kodie was born and she just fell in love, being a mum myself I can understand the nerves and love you get when giving birth and she has been a fantastic mum since, as if she was born for this.

 

dsc_0247dsc_0357dsc_0202

These photos are absolutely stunning it shows you everything you need and want after a baby, the happiness already in this little mans heart just shows what real family is, the love the proud parents shows comes up in these photos. Amazing family photos.

Until next time
