Mermaid - photographed by Charlie, a photographer in Somerset - www.charlottephotography.co.uk

Nearly grown up

The big girl is nearly 10, which is that tricky age where they are not quite a grown up and not really still a kid.
Here she is in a monkey onesie with her very first facepack with cucumbers on her eyes.
Oh and Stephen Fry is reading her Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince via that old iphone next to her

The smaller girl is still only seven and likes to pretend she’s a mermaid in the bath.

Toby the Labradoodle

This young chap is called Toby, he’s a Labradoodle and he was rather large but oh so fluffy and cuddly.
He was rather excited during his photoshoot and I had to be really really quick to push that button and get the shot,  he sat still for literally seconds, but I managed it in the end.
Dogs are a bit like children in that their attention span is very short, but you can still make silly noises to get their attention, Toby liked me to make cat noises, I bet he dreams every night of chasing them around his garden.

I just had this made up from one of my favourite photographs that I took of my girls last summer, and I totally love it.

I love that I can add a line of text underneath, that describes what you were doing at that particular moment, or I just label it with the location and date (Summer in Somerset 2013).

Now i’m going to have to have a dozen more made up.

 

Let me know if you want one made up of your favourite image.

Family photo shoot & cake smash - photographed by Charlie, a photographer in Somerset - www.charlottephotography.co.uk

Styled family photo shoot

I could almost eat him up, he’s really rather cute and would probably taste very nice with a smudge of butter.

In fact the whole family were very lovely, the mum colour co-ordinated everything, paper pom-poms, bunting, dresses, shirts and even the little yellow tie.

Once the little chap forgot about the hat on his head and eventually tried the butter icing (instead of the candle) then we were away, there was no stopping him.

You never know what their reaction is going to be when they are given a huge cake to eat.  They can’t quite believe their luck and you often have to help them along by putting their fingers in the icing for them. Once this wee fella realised he could eat what was in front of him, he had a whale of a time tucking in.

I  also especially love the fact that his big sister has her shoes on the wrong feet.

Random photos from today

At my last Photography Club (it’s no longer called Camera Club) we decided to start a project.

I did one for a whole year back in 2012 which can be seen here, and here and here, i think i missed about six in total. I explained how it really made me look for photo opportunities even when you thought one didn’t exist.
We have decided to do it for a month to start with, but possibly longer, we’ll see how we go.

My ‘photo a day’ from this years little project are up here on Flickr, and although i’ve missed a couple already i’m still enjoying it, it’s taking a while to get back into the swing of things.

Here are a few random photos that i took today, just to get back into the swing of things.
