Hertfordshire family photographer woodland photo shoot

Hertfordshire family photographer  Woodland photo shoot

I had the good fortune of being available when I was contacted by this family to do a rushed, last minute woodland photo shoot a few weeks ago. We grabbed a few hours in the beautiful surroundings of Sherrardswood for a family photo shoot before they left to fly back to India to live nearer their family. We lucked out completely with the weather and the sun shone prettily through the trees making it look more like summer than February!

The two girls relaxed quickly as we played with their bears, finding pine cones for them to nibble on. (Bears do eat pine cones right?!) They had chosen to incorporate the bears into the photos as they hold a special place in their hearts. I think they look really cute!

Hopefully by now, having left their school friends and all that is  familiar to them, the girls are beginning to settle in to their new surroundings and are facing things with the same warmth and enthusiasm that they showed me on our shoot.

 That’s a real special part of my job, making connections with lovely people and for a small moment in time being part of their story, capturing moments for them to cherish as they move forward with life.

You may leave people and places behind, but you can carry the memories of them forever.

I hope the prints that they chose from their woodland photo shoot remind them of the years that they spent in England and I wish them much happiness in their new venture.

Here are my favourites from their gallery…

Herts Wedding Photographer Kids at Weddings

Herts Wedding Photographer Kids at Weddings.

There’s no doubt that kids at weddings add a little something extra. Whether that be mischief, laughter, fun or just a little unpredictability, I love to photograph it. Now I know that kids at weddings aren’t everyone’s cup of tea and that is fine, but often they are there in abundance! You have to admit that most kids play to the camera but they are, at the same time very natural in front of it. Last year I photographed quite a few weddings where the kids were (almost) the star attractions, they got away with that being the off springs of the bride and groom! So, whether they take centre stage or sneak off to some corner to make mischief, they are always up to something and that’s always good to capture. I welcome them!

Here is a collection of a few of my favourite kids at weddings photo’s…

Greek Christening Photographer The Twelve Apostles Hertfordshire

Greek Christening Photographer The Twelve Apostles Hertfordshire.

So, I officially love photographing this little family. This is good as I have done it quite a few times now.

I first got asked to photograph baby number one when he was just a few weeks old. Soon after, his christening followed and I was honoured to be asked to document that special day. Forward a couple of years and along comes beautiful baby number two. Again, I captured him at just a few weeks old this time with his big brother, and again I was just as honoured to capture his christening day too.

This little man was surrounded by his family and friends in the exquisite 12 Apostles Church in Hertfordshire and showed us all that his lungs are working just fine! He clearly wasn’t pleased at all the attention.

This Greek christening was filled with warmth, laughter and love, an occasion which is one of my favourites to photograph. I have put together a few from the day to show tis Greek Christening story, I hope you enjoy them.

And should you need a Greek Christening Photographer I would love to hear from you…just use the links below. x

Family Photo Shoot Welwyn Garden City

Family Photo Shoot Welwyn Garden City.

This little gang were after natural un posed photo’s that captured them just how they are. We opted for the woods as everyone knows, kids love the woods. There was plenty to play with and find, so our time together went quickly as the boys played and I snapped away.

I love this type of shoot, I get to see family connections and bonds as everyone relaxes into being themselves…I’m not an airs and graces sort of person! The boys were great, their friendship apparent, although you ‘re not ever too far away from a scuffle around brothers.

I think mum’s choice of rugby shirts for the boys was fab, the bright colours looked great against the backdrop of the woods, they really pop. I have to say that these images from their family photo shoot in Welwyn Garden City are some of my favourites…

Come on, it’s really not that scary, I promise to do my best to make you feel at ease!

Before your head shot session we will chat over what type of image you would like, some thing formal or more light hearted for example. I can also advise on clothing choices if you need me to. Each session will vary in time but if you allow an hour, we won’t be rushed.

Head shot sessions can take place at your work or at my home studio. Cost £65 per digital image.

Baby and Child Photo Shoot-Dottie and Nell

Baby and Child Photo Shoot-Dottie and Nell.

We had a really warm day a couple of weeks ago and I was lucky enough to venture into the woods with these two little ladies and their mum for an Autumnal mini shoot. Mum wanted colourful pictures of her daughters which were natural and un posed…right up my street. The woods looked stunning this particular afternoon for this baby and child photo shoot, which was lucky as the days either side were pretty dreadful!

We had a lovely relaxed hour or so playing in the leaves, collecting pine cones, skipping and dancing. Both girls were charming and really easy, both completely at ease with the camera. Those little curls bounced in the golden sunlight and I clicked away thinking all my Xmases had come at once!

I have included a few of my favourites form our baby and child photo shoot in the woods. (No bears surprised us!)

If you would like your own mini shoot, you will find more details here.

Tewinbury Farm Hotel Wedding with Les and Vicky

Tewinbury Farm Hotel Wedding with Les and Vicky.

Hertfordshire wedding Photographer.

I admit that every couple I photograph on their wedding day look truly happy, but really, these two really really did!

This  Tewinbury Farm Hotel wedding looked delicious and felt amazing!  The “boys” had been entrusted with the task of decorating the Tythe barn early that morning and actually pulled it off, I’m very certain though that Vicky’s meticulous planning and exquisitely good taste had a lot to do with that! Later on, the couple’s excitement was contagious filling the place with a warm and twinkly atmosphere.

Vicky walked down the isle to a song that Les’ youngest daughter had recorded, a surprise to most, there wasn’t a dry eye in sight. (Including mine, something gets me every time!!!) Surrounded by all their daughter’s, family and close friends they made their vows to each other.

Having met with Les and Vicky a few times before their big day I knew that they wanted mostly relaxed, un posed photography, so we took a little time to wander round the beautiful grounds at Tewinbury Farm hotel…I stood back a little and documented their first few moments together as husband and wife.

As the day turned in to night, speeches done, evening guests arrived, cake cut and so the party began. The band played, people danced and laughed and sang and ate and drunk and all thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Especially the newly weds.

Massive, heartfelt congratulations you two, it was a blast…thank you for having me. x

Here are a few from the wedding story…

Ok, I have to admit I’m really not a dog person. I know, they are a large part of so many people’s lives and families…just not mine.

That said, if I get asked if a family can bring their dog along to their photo shoot I am happily 100% YES!  Family photography should involve all the family after all. It is suggested that we never work with children and animals but I’m not really one to listen to others advice either…a bit of chaos never hurt anyone and it makes great photography.

I want your photo shoot to reflect your personalities, who you are as a family. Bring along a noisy gang of kids, the family pet, mum’s, dad’s and grandparent’s, cousins….

Or any combination of the above…just be yourselves, and help me make beautiful, emotive images that will provoke happy memories of a time in your lives that you won’t get back.

Here are a few of my favourite images from a recent photo session in the woods. If you are interested in family photography welwyn garden city or surrounding areas I would love to hear from you. x

Wedding Photography at Great Hallingbury Manor Hotel

Wedding Photography at Great Hallingbury Manor Hotel.

The first time I met both Kelly and Alex they brought along their mini entourage of four boys…yep four boys! They all had a cheeky glint in their eyes so I knew this wedding was going to be fun, relaxed and a perfect match for me. I must add that all four of them sat there, whilst we had a planning meeting with out a peep…such good boys.

This was the first time I had photographed at Great Hallingbury Manor Hotel and the day bloomed bright and sunny. I love a wedding with a bunch of kids around and there were plenty in this wedding party. Kelly and Alex clearly rate family highly and they wanted all the children to play a part. They wanted natural, unposed and honest wedding photography to show the true story of their day…I hope I delivered!

Here are a few favourites of the day…

Hertfordshire Family Photographer-Ayot St Lawrence photo shoot

Hertfordshire Family Photographer-Ayot St Lawrence photo shoot.

Sometimes you have to just roll with it as life doesn’t always go as planned. Our photo shoot day promised sunshine, we got rain! This gorgeous family were coming from further afield than my usual client so when the dark skies and rain appeared half way through their journey it was just too late to change any thing. Lucky for me they were troupers and unfazed by the rain they bounced into our lovely location (Ayot St Lawrence, see more here) with enthusiasm. Lucky for them, I’m unfazed by rain too 🙂

Mum wanted natural images of her children to mark a time in life, nothing too staged, no cheesy grins…she came to the right place.

I have to say these guys made my job easy, just kids being kids, confident, playful and funny. Their personalities shone.

And eventually, so did the sun!

If you need a Hertfordshire Family Photographer I would love to hear from you, just drop me a line.

Enjoy a few of my (many) favourites from our Ayot St Lawrence photo shoot…
