This has been a long time coming, scheduled originally for the beginning of March, after a few rearrangements from the client, we got there in the end and thoroughly enjoyed watching this little girl get in about the cake once she realised it was something edible! There were to little one year old girls involved in this, however, one very strongly did not want to take part, bless her. Alexia however loved the cake and balloons and enjoyed exploring the textures and tastes. I have another cake smash session lined up in the next week or two so look out for some more of these sessions and if you are interested in booking your child in a session fee is £69 includes 1-2hrs photography, professionally edited images, all edited images on usb drive, private online gallery and 12 x 8 print of choice. Cake MUST be supplied by parents. Hope to see you soon! In the meantime, follow the "read more" cut below to see more images from the shoot!
Puppies! Everyone loves puppies and being the wild animal lover of all species that I am, I'm certainly NOT immune to their adorable charm and it was sheer willpower not to give this lady all of my money and take them all home! These little sweethearts were 5 weeks old and had the sweetest natures, playful as puppies are and extra specially cuddly. They were both curious and wary of the camera, but sitting on the floor and allowing them to come and go and sniff and chew as they needed to soon won them over and 4 out of 5 decided my legs were the most suitable place for a mid afternoon siesta - this made taking photos challenging, but secretly I didn't mind. Would you?

A seasonably warm March morning at Wollaton Park turned a little chilly, so the jackets and jumpers advised to bring along in case was a good call! I met The Millers in the car park and had a chat about what to expect and the type of images we were aiming to achieve and got right on with it. It was a great morning/afternoon exploring the park and playing - the kids had a great time and the adults it seemed equally so. I love a big family shoot, capturing the fun and dynamics between different family members is always interesting and often emotionally fulfilling. The challenge of a big shoot with many people doing their own thing is making sure you capture all the goings on and miss nothing - phew! I love these images, you can see the fun being had and the happiness all around and that is the best thing about making family memories and capturing them on camera. It's a hard thing to do being involved AND taking the photos, which is where I come in. I can unobtrusively follow along, allow you and your family to interact as normal and capture those fun, happy, silly moments you get to treasure forever. Check out more of the Miller's Family Fun Day behind the cut.
When you organise a birthday party for the little people in your life it's a non-stop crazy train of fun and madness from start until finish and before you know it, it's all over and done with and you're lucky if you've managed to snap a few hasty shots of the birthday cake and candle blowing event. Well, that's where I come in and I was lucky enough to take photos of the eldest brother at this party when he was just a little baby and now he's 3! He's 3 and his little brother has just turned 1! Time really does fly. It was a great day. We got off to a false start and ended up 50 minutes late to the event after our car battery was flat and we needed to get help to get going, but we got there in the end and managed to take many lovely photos I hope the family will be able to cherish for years to come and great memories for the boys to look back at when they get older :) Follow the cut to take a look at a few of the images from the afternoon.
This little taster session took place outside of Nottingham. The shoot was approximately an hour shooting time with a variety of props and outfits used. There was multiple challenges presented on this shoot - space limitation and lighting! We worked through though and got some great images despite this and had a lot of fun in the process.
Last weekend I was asked to do a magazine shoot quite spur of the moment and was delighted to take the opportunity! The article the photographs are to accompany is about Holistic Animal Healing, particularly distance healing, communication and Reiki. The article will focus on Jane and her business Retreat Therapy Nottingham and will be in an upcoming edition of the Fate & Fortune Magazine. I will find out which edition so you can all grab a copy and find out more about this alternative healing practice and the animals Jane has already helped, an of course see my images in print!
