Whilst I was on holiday in Cornwall, I met up with the Ferguson family to do a lifestyle family portrait shoot with them. They suggested Hemmick Beach for our location which isn’t far from St Austell, and the place means a lot to both Karen and Duncan. I have never been to Hemmick Beach before so was very pleased we met there as it is a gorgeous beach. It’s very secluded so is less crowded than beaches such as Fistral beach or Towan beach which is where we tend to head, though driving down to Hemmick Beach requires a lot of praying and crossing of fingers as the lanes to it are very narrow and thankfully I didn’t come across an oncoming car!
On the day the shoot was scheduled, poor little Daniel was unwell. We still went ahead as he had a cough the past couple of days and was generally fine, but after a while, we decided to reschedule for later that week when he was feeling better.
However, on the day we rescheduled, the weather took a turn for the worse. So we headed to a school in St Austell where Duncan works as a teacher to do the shoot instead of meeting again at Hemmick Beach. Daniel was a lot better and more himself so I was able to capture lots of photos of him smiling and being cheeky!
I met Sally from The Mother Factor when I attended one of her courses about networking a few months ago. Her business focuses on providing mums support to help empower them when achieving their goals and dreams, whether it is for personal reasons or with help in running their own business. Sally had asked me to do some headshots for her so that she can use them for her website and other social media platforms. We carried out the photos in her garden so she was able to change her outfits and also include her son Sean, as he is her inspiration for starting her own business.
Please check out Sally’s website and work, and also this blog she had posted about the photoshoot with a couple of pictures of yours truly working!
I met the Kusman family after they had won a competition through Hertfordshire Education Recycle to have a portrait photoshoot. On a beautiful sunny day, we met at the Verulamium Park in St Albans, Hertfordshire which is one of my favourite parks in the local area. They were a fun family, wanting to do lots of different ideas for the shoot, and up for running around and enjoying themselves. These are a few of my favourite photos from the day.
It has been a while since I last blogged! It hasn’t been long since I came home from holiday so I have been slowly catching up with things. But I do have a few shoots to blog so keep an eye out for those over the next couple of weeks!
For now, I have a couple of sneak peeks of the Ferguson family who I had the pleasure of photographing whilst I was away in Cornwall. I ended up doing two shoots with them as little Daniel was poorly with a cough on the day we had originally arranged. Although we still went ahead with it to see how he would feel, we felt it would be best to rearrange for a later date. We rescheduled and he was a lot better and a bit more himself.
For now, here is a couple of sneak peeks of the cheeky little boy and his family.
A few weeks ago I photographed Grace and Chloe with their parents in the back garden of their nan’s home in Oxhey, Hertfordshire. They were both really sweet and gorgeous, and although it took Chloe a while to get use to the camera, we got some great photos of the two of them as well as their parents.
Last month I went to Aylesbury to visit six month old Joshua and his parents at their home for a lifestyle portrait shoot. It was a horrible day weather wise but Joshua had a gorgeous smile that was infectious! He is such a happy little soul so I had a lot of fun photographing him.
Last weekend, I visited the Adams family to take photographs of them in their back garden. Grace and Chloe were adorable, and I was able to capture some beautiful smiles from them! Here are a couple of sneak peeks.
On the blog today are four brothers who I had the pleasure of photographing a few weeks ago. I have known their mum Louise since secondary school, so it was great to see her and catch up, as well as photographing her four boys together. It was lovely to see how close they all are, and they were so full of energy when we went down to the local park to photograph them that the shoot was a lot of fun.
I have had a couple of crazy weeks, so lacking on the blog posting! But today I will start with photographs I took of baby Bella and her family. Originally I was going to photograph Bella with her mum, her nan and her great-nan as a four generations family photo, but great-nan wasn’t feeling well, so we focused firstly on Bella and a few of her with her mum and nan. I returned the next day to take more photographs of Bella, but this time with her mum and dad. Bella is a gorgeous, happy baby and did so well in front of the camera. Here are some of my favourite shots from the two days.
