60th birthday present welwyn garden city photographer

60th birthday present welwyn garden city photographer

these were taken as a 60th birthday present for their nanny, who wanted some natural photo’s of all her grandchildren.

we used the woods and the bluebells as a natural back drop. Sherrards park woods had a fabulous crop of bluebells this year, and I am lucky to have had the pleasure of taking several families there on photo sessions…amazing to have that on your doorstep!

these four little girls were an absolute delight, they skipped, jumped, ran and giggled around, creating perfect moments for me to capture.

I hope nanny likes her 60th birthday present!

baby photo session hertfordshire photographer

baby photo session hertfordshire photographer

I just wanted to let all you baby and toddler mum’s know that I offer  mid week mini shoots. Tailored especially for babies up to pre school children, a  mid week session is perfect to capture all those special moments, which are all too fleeting.

These photo shoots are slightly shorter than a regular family photo shoot which can be ideal for little ones as they won’t have time to get bored, fidgety, hot, cold, hungry, thirsty….you know the score!!! Don’t worry though they are long enough for me to capture a range of beautiful moments.

Your shoot can take place in the comfort of your own home or in a location of your choice, anywhere that you and yours feel comfortable!

This offer doesn’t run during the school holidays, sorry. Nor is it suitable for newborns.

A mid week mini shoot costs just £150 and includes 5 digital files chosen from a gallery of approx 20 images.

If you would like to discuss or book, i would love to hear from you!

baby photo shoot hertfordshire photographer

wow, this baby photo shoot was a dream!

she was perfect. smiling through, she braved the wind and the not so warm weather with out even a hint of a complaint.

to say i was broody afterwards would not be a lie…those chubby cheeks, those chubby legs…don’t you just want to squoosh them? (please tell me that’s not just me, and is squoosh even a word?!!!)

apparently she makes up for her more than perfect day time behaviour by being a little lively at night, but i guess that could be a girls prerogative. before you know it you will be trying to drag her teenage butt out of bed before noon!

at least you will have these photo’s to look back on and remember how cute she was when she couldn’t answer back…i’m sure though, she will grow up into a beautiful “big girl” too x

you can see mum in her eyes, i mean literally, look closely!
if you would like your own baby photo shoot i would love to hear from you!

mini shoot hertfordshire photographer

a few for a friend.

whilst it is lovely to meet new families and spend time getting to know them, encouraging them to relax in front of the camera, it is equally as special to capture someone you have known from a baby!

this little girl belongs to one of my best friends, i wanted to make my friend smile.  i got a window of opportunity the other day as her daughter came over for a while, so i took five minutes to take a few shots, hoping that a few images of her would make her happy.

looking at these images i see my friend reflected in her daughter’s eyes, her daughter’s freckles and her daughter’s smile. they are both special, they are both beautiful, i hope they realise that. my next mission is to get them both in the frame!

mini shoot hertfordshire photographer

this little selection took five minutes to shoot, did i capture her, can you see her soul?

imagine spending a couple of hours with me on a shoot, imagine the images i could capture of your children.

if you are interested in a photo session i would love to hear from you!

family photo shoot welwyn garden city photographer

i had the pleasure of meeting this lovely bunch a few weeks back for a bluebell photo shoot. knowing that as well as littlest sister, there were three lively boys to photograph i thought we could mix it up a little.

we decided to shoot firstly in the bluebells as mum specifically wanted them involved, then wandered through the woods to a little place i know that has the most amazing graffiti wall. this was a completely different backdrop to their photo’s, which added to the variety in their gallery. i had been wanting to shoot there for a while!

a quick t shirt change for the boys meant they were as bright as the wall…my conclusion…graffiti is GOOD! (as were the kids!)

my girl welwyn garden city photographer

i’d almost forgotten what she looks like! she has been hidden away in her room revising for exams, hard at work, we have hardly seen her. i miss her a little.

i meant to blog these a while back, they were taken beginning of april. i managed to grab 5 minutes with her to go searching for early bluebells…we didn’t find any…but it was nice to capture a few shots of my little lady.

and now as i sit and look at these i can’t wait for her exams to be over and half term to start so we can see her lovely face a bit more often. the boys are great, we have such fun, but a bit of time with my only girl is well overdue.

she’s my girl…

these were taken in mardley woods, welwyn. this is a new location for me…and a new favourite too! there are masses of silver birch trees which happen to look beautiful in both winter and summer, so perfect for me! if you are interested in a shoot here, or any where else i would love to hear from you!

bluebells are so last season! welwyn garden city photographer

this gorgeous sea of yellow was a welcome change from bluebells last night!

 i had seen this field in all its splendour last year, but never found a way in!

last night was different, we found a way in! (my navigation skills and sense of direction are clearly improving…mind you, they couldn’t have got any worse.) we were on our way back from a family birthday party, and really should have rushed home for baths and homework. life’s too short for that though, it was warm and bright, we went for a little walk…

welwyn garden city photographer

it wasn’t long before the boys found something better to do…stone digging…

if i lent a helping hand i was promised a couple of shots of them together…and one of middle man, minus the football shirt!
don’t get me wrong, the bluebells are so pretty, dreamy and charming.  when you have spent hours editing all your bluebell shoots though, yellow seems so zingy!

i love that field.

not as much as these boys though.

old teaches the young welwyn garden city photographer

our first bbq of the year, that can only mean one thing…the kids play with fire!

kids need adventure, kids need to explore, kids need to find their own boundaries. that’s just my opinion, there’s no guarantee that i’m right.

it seems that whenever a bbq is lit, we cook, we eat, they make bbq’d bananas stuffed with chocolate, then they collect wood and burn it. their fascination with fire never ceases, they stand watching the flames flicker, they get lost in the smoke…and i stand by and watch, i let them play.

lately though i see my lessons being re taught by my eldest son. he teaches his youngest brother not to stand too close, he tells him why dry leaves crackle, why the damp wood smokes and most importantly he explains that you have to treat fire with respect and play safely. finally he plays fireman with him and puts the fire out with the garden hose, damping down the surrounding area. games i hope they will remember long into adulthood. they make me proud.

these photo’s were taken in the dark, in the fire light…i wanted to remember this moment of their childhood.

bluebell photo sessions welwyn garden city photographer

angels with dirty faces photographyApril 17, 2014

hooray!

spring has finally sprung..look at the sunshine…look at the bluebells.

they are only here for a short time, which adds to their allure i think…it’s now time to get out and have that bluebell photo session. creating a stunning backdrop, amongst the woods, the bluebells are a popular choice of setting for families and photographers and it’s clear to see why… the beautiful colours, the promise of lighter longer days and, the first wafts of warmer air.

as well as my normal photo sessions, (details can be found here), I am also running a small number of mini shoots over the next few weekends which are ideal for those of you who don’t have the time or budget to commit to a full session.

although “mini”, this offer still includes a pre shoot consultation, a great way for me to find out a little about you and your kids and an opportunity for you to ask me anything you may need to know. each session will last approx 60 to 90 minutes and are suitable for up to 3 children.
approximately 2 weeks after your shoot, you will have access to your private on line gallery containing approx 20 edited images. from here you will choose 3 favourites which you will receive as 6×9 inch prints.
these sessions will take place over the weekend 2nd and 3rd May 2015, i also offer these mid week if that suits you with pre schoolers.

price for bluebell mini shoot…£145
optional add on…all the images from your shoot on a disc £155  (you will also have the opportunity to purchase larger prints if you wish to do so.)

***please leave me a facebook message or drop me an email stating your interest and a preferred time and i will come back to you to discuss x***

boys+mud=perfect match welwyn garden city photographer

…that’s about the sum of it!

i think i may have mentioned before that i think having boys may be similar to having dogs…simple really, they just need a run out every day! i am probably doing many boys an injustice, but not mine.

this was one of those days. it all started well, chilled out morning, brunch, more chilling. then of course the bundling starts, and the play fights and they start kicking a ball around the house. (how many times have i asked them not too?!)

we needed to “get out”, so”out” we got.

it was raining and the windiest day ever but it was better than inside, we braved it. (“oh no” says one of them, “do you have to bring your camera?”)

i was beginning to think that he was right, i couldn’t see what i was doing, the wind was so strong blowing my hair in my eyes. the rain kept raining, but we kept on walking. it was then that they found THE MUD…

these photo’s aren’t going to win any prizes for technical excellence, but they captured our afternoon, and i’m so glad i took them. now, i will remember a moment in time and my boys’ madness, their quest for fun, freedom and dirt.

i will also remember a time when smiles and belly laughing came before “don’t get dirty”. i’m kind of chuffed about that.

this morning my youngest recalled his roll in the mud…”that was the best day EVER mummy, wasn’t it?”
