There’s something about summer meadows and children, they are a match made in heaven!

All that freedom to skip, run, jump and play in the warm summer sunshine…it’s a photographers dream.

I was excited to meet these two little lovelies and their parents a few weeks ago for a family photo shoot, mum wanted a variety of shots of the girls with a natural, countryside back drop.

Luckily the weather played ball and we got some sunshine, (and quite a lot of wind!). Mum had asked for both colour and black and white to chose from and we decided to spend time in both the fields and the local church, where i took the opportunity to utilise the big stone walls and gorgeous dark wooden doors.

The girls were naturals in front of the camera, giggling and playing together…good fun was had by all! There were so many images I loved from this shoot, here are a few of my favourites…

holiday photo’s welwyn garden city photographer

the holiday are almost upon us, yay!

it’s amazing how quickly that year goes, and how much things can change.

i was browsing through my lightroom catalogue last night and came across these from last years holiday…i hardly recognise my eldest son! he has grown so much…when did that happen?

it’s just another reminder of how photo’s really do “fill in those gaps”. when life rushes by, they remind me of all the little forgotten moments…and the big moments too. it doesn’t have to be a great shot, just a shot that captures that moment.

any photo is better than no photo.

so, here’s wishing everyone happy holidays and happy memories too!

holiday photo
not really sure who’s are who’s!
cousins came to visit…
favourite shop…
it wasn’t always warm…
we sheltered in the woods…
and dried off by the fire!
picnics on the beach…
we didn’t eat the locals!
she nearly took it home…
my four know how to strike a pose?!
they climbed trees…
and sand dunes…
and took plenty of selfies!
one of us felt completely empowered!
it was our perfect, nothing beats hanging out together.

i’m not going to lie, i get bored easily.

i mean really easily.

I guess that’s why i am ALWAYS on the look out for new locations to take my clients to for their photo session. it was a surprise then to come across this gem…how comes i have never been here before? how could i have missed this gem of a place. hidden in the depths of the hertfordshire countryside, this place really hits the spot!

my ever patient models came along to check this place out and i have to say even they were charmed! the old ruins make a fantastic back drop, the pillars an equally brilliant frame and the pretty meadows in-between were just the icing on the cake!

(is it only me that gets excited about this stuff?!)

take a look at the results, maybe you’ll agree, this location rocks!!!

*if you would like your own location photo session i would love to hear from you 07969 6266312*

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

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.
