Chats and Knitting

Irene needed some photos for her website so we found a sunny evening to do a shoot. Irene’s a lot of fun and we giggled our way around the grounds of the old hall where she lives, trying out various backdrops, with a bit of tree hugging on the side. My favourite spots were the very old green front door and a border of pink flowers to match Irene’s outfit as if there to order. Molly the cat joined us and we caught up with some of the neighbours. What a nice time.

And Barney came away with a gorgeous blue tank top, awww thank you Irene, perfect timing as the weather cools for the little boy who loves knitwear.

Star of the Show

Ben is one of my Barney’s little friends and Rachel and Gareth were looking for natural photos of the three of them. I had every empathy having felt panicky during the first few months of Barney’s life feeling that it was passing us by without any record on camera of us as a new family. There’s rarely an extra pair of hands to take a good photograph.

Ben was as gorgeous as always. He smiled. He chuckled. He wriggled. And now and again he stared curiously at the lens checking out what I was doing. We watched his delight trying out the beautiful old and perfectly-sized rocking chair that has been passed down through the family. He smiled at his parents in pure baby bliss while sat in his cot cuddling his two furry friends. The little man definitely stole the show.

Summer Photography

With our recent heatwave it’s been a treat to do photo shoots where the challenge has been harsh sunlight rather than wind or rain. I had a good feeling about this shoot when little Olivia met me and immediately noticed the pink flower I was wearing, turning the chat turned to accessories … my kind of girl :-). Beautiful wooden floors made a perfect studio to start, then shady spots against stone textures of the house … some play in the garden … followed by wanderings down a tree-lined country lane with wooden fences for little two to sit on. All wonderful backdrops for a gorgeous family to produce some of my favourite Summer family photos.
