With the recent spell of amazing weather we’ve been enjoying (please say I’m not going to jinx it by talking about it) I was suddenly struck by how lovely it would be to have a picnic. Getting out into the great outdoors with friends and family and a few bits and bobs in a picnic basket is so easy and provides a wonderful backdrop for a shoot you’ll remember with as many happy memories as they do!

My social media portrait evening

A little while ago i held an evening where people could come and have a glass of wine and eat a few crisps whilst they plucked up the courage to let me take a few photographs of them so that they could then use one of them as their ‘social media profile pic’.

Everyone said it was a really fun evening and that it really wasn’t as bad as they thought it might be, which is great.
I know i had fun taking the photographs and asking them to pose and making them giggle.

Here are a few shots to start off with, but i’ll be adding more.

A lovely little family came to visit in the studio

Lovely little family came to visit

This lovely little family came to visit me the other weekend and the girls were adorable.

They were only one and two years old, so obviously they didn’t necessarily do what i wanted them to do but hey that’s what i get for photographing children, children don’t do what you want them to do, they do what they want to do and that’s what makes it all the more fun.

I love that my old wooden children’s trolley is such a popular prop.

James & Charlotte got married

James and Charlotte got married – North Wootton

This lovely couple actually got married in Cyprus about four days before these photographs were taken.

A party was arranged at The Crossways Venue  in North Wootton, Somerset when they got back so that the rest of family, who didn’t make it to Cyprus, could enjoy the celebrations as well.

James and Charlotte were not only a gorgeous couple but they were also really good sports and were up for doing lots of fun things whilst we had our photo shoot.
