A Summer Picnic – A Photographers Dream!

This blog post was also published on the Keepsake Companies website.

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!

Daddies shed

Why not make a collage for daddy on fathers day.

Sometimes it’s not what you photograph but how you put it together. One image can be powerful but a series of images really tells a story.

On June 16th 2013, it’s Father’s Day over here in the UK, which means we are supposed to encourage our children into making something nice and sticky and messy for their daddies.

It’s all in the details.

I have just written my first blog post in conjunction with the Keepsake Company which is owned and run by Victoria Casebourne, it’s all about photographing all those special individual things that make your child unique to you.

Our children are surely our most precious keepsakes after all we housed them for 9 months in our bellies and then it was really hard getting them out wasn’t it? So it’s unsurprising that we feel quite attached to them. I’m sure most of you have taken quite a few photographs of your little darlings, I’m sure quite a few of you have taken thousands, which is wonderful, it’s lovely looking back on those tiny toes and cute button noses, but have you thought of documenting all those special individual things that make your child unique to you?
