he stole my heart…welwyn garden city photographer

…watch out for yours!

i met this little family a few weeks back now and have been dying to show a few of their photo shoot images. this young man was charming, funny and eloquent…more eloquent than many adults i know! (sorry adults!)…and he’s only two and a half. to say he stole the show is an understatement, although his favourite ducks and frogs did share some of the limelight.

we spent a couple of hours playing in the woods, had a pine cone tea party with his doggy, he got to play aeroplanes with his daddy and had cuddles with mummy. he was great.

i loved this families choice of colours, their neutral colour jumpers blend perfectly with the woods and the natural setting and their closeness and happy personalities made this photo shoot really fun. oh! i almost forgot to mention the wellies, such a perfect pop of colour.

here are a few of my favourites, i hope you enjoy x

*if you would like to book your own photo shoot, i would love to hear from you!*

bluebell photo shoots welwyn garden city photographer

has spring sprung?

welwyn garden city photographer

they are cutting the grass outside my house as i type…this can only mean one thing…spring has sprung!

it’s definitely warmer, i’ve definitely seen snowdrops, and the bluebells will definitely be here soon. this is a good thing, we like longer evenings, warmer days, flowers, leaves, flip flops …it’s an endless list.

i am now taking bookings for bluebell shoots, so for all of you that have spent the winter hibernating now is the time to get out and about, smell the fresh air and get some colour back in your cheeks!!

there are  many beautiful locations around hertfordshire, perfectly enhanced soon by the arrival of bluebells, i can suggest a location to suit.

if you are interested and would like me to contact you once they start flowering please drop me a line or call

denise@angelswithdirtyfacesphotography.com    or  07969 626631

i can’t wait to hear from you x

smiles all round welwyn garden city photography

so my sister muzzled in and joined in to the woodland mini shoots that took place this half term.

she’s been badgering me for photo’s of her three since xmas…xmas 2013, so this little session was long over due! she was after a few, serious, pensive shots, but two of my kids decided to join us and all of that fell by the wayside as mine played the fool behind me and everyone fell into fits of giggles!
i personally think this wasn’t such a bad thing…the serious faces can wait…i love their smiles

(i may now consider employing my eldest son and my youngest son as professional photographer assistants, or fools, i haven’t decided yet!)

anyway, i can’t stop looking at these…their little faces make me happy, their individual personalities shine on. i hope you enjoy looking at them too…it’s a pretty big share.

if you would like a woodland shoot, a shoot at home or any location of your choice please contact me to book a session for the up coming months. it would be lovely to hear from you x

james bond impressions, drumming and ice cream welwyn photographer

…seems a perfectly natural way to spend the day when you’re 7!

he’s lucky enough to have a birthday close to half term so we were able to spend an afternoon in the holidays doing fun things. i remembered to take my camera so amused myself snapping away…glad i captured the james bond games…nothing beats a childs imagination. the old building provided welcome shelter from the rain whilst we waited for our  drum studio session and meant the boys could let off a little steam!

note to myself…take ear plugs to a drum studio! oh, the benefits of hindsight. yes it was noisy, very noisy, but the kids enjoyed themselves. (i guess that’s the main thing) i didn’t think anything got louder than our drum kit at home, believe me, six drum kits in one room is very much louder.

in search of a little quiet time we went for ice cream, hot chocs, cold chocs, sodas, doughnuts…if you can’t indulge on a birthday hey?!

here are a few snap shots of our afternoon, oh, and if anyone else is silly enough to arrange a drumming session they are really cool here…

photo shoot at home welwyn garden city photographer

many people love to have their photo shoot outside, kids love the freedom to run around, and this helps to create beautiful natural images. but, on the same note i find families are very relaxed in their own homes, children feel in control in their own environment, so why not have your photo shoot at home?

whilst it’s cold and maybe wet outside, home is safe and dependable, and natural lifestyle shoots make beautiful images.

the soft winter sun, streaming through a large window creates a gorgeous backlight, the perfect setting for a picture. (and we don’t have to rely on the weather!) even a dull dreary day can throw enough light for stunning dramatic images, these look great in black and white!

capturing children and families at home, doing their “own thing’ is one of my favourite things…i love the personal, intimate and natural images created in this setting.

if you would like to chat about a photo shoot at home, i would love to hear from you! use the “email me’ link below or just give me a call!

pretty winter sun welwyn garden city photographer

i always like to check out a location before i do a shoot there. even if i have been before i will often have a wander around, seeing how the light falls, how it changes at different times of the day, how the seasons change the vista…
with my half term woodland mini shoots approaching i decided to take the boys to the woods to take a few test shots…and to let off steam! football had been cancelled that day so they were climbing the walls!
i just love the delicate light of the winter sun as it sets, and the deep earthy tones of the woods. the boys ran around, (who needs a dog when you have three boys?!), and i just snapped away…these shots tell the story of our hour or so in the woods.
if you like these and would like some photos of your own children then please get in touch! i am running mini shoots on friday 20th feb 2015, each shoot is up to 1 hour and will result in a selection of images similar to the ones below for you to choose from.  you will find full details here…

movie inspired shoot angels with dirty faces photography

movie inspired shoot angels with dirty faces photography

well this shoot was certainly different!

this (fabulously good fun) couple were looking for an unusual present for their 4 daughters this xmas…i think they found it. inspired by the movies of Wes Anderson they decided on a shoot themed in the style of the film “The Royal Tenenbaums”, and dressed up as characters Marge and Richie Tenenbaum. They had sourced their outfits when they called me to enquire about the shoot, so that left me to sort out a location to suit the style of image that they were after…we ended up on the top floor of a car park, amongst other places!

they love the warmth and rich orange tones of the film which i replicated in the edit.  it was fun to edit in a different style , in fact the whole shoot was fun!!!

they chose 4 different images, one for each daughter and gave them framed as xmas presents! here are their favourites, and a couple of mine too.

oh, and if you want to see some original film stills you can do here…

a boy a book and a bathroom. angels with dirty faces photography

having taken a little break over the xmas holiday i am ready to rock and roll!

busy times do take their toll  and make you weary, we are all the same, but it is amazing how stepping away from things ignites your passion for them again. we had days out, we slept a lot, ate a lot, drunk a little (a lot) and then after a few days of that i noticed the light again…a misty light in the steamy bathroom and once again i couldn’t resist…the camera was out again.
and now, all squeaky clean and new yearish I AM READY!
bring on 2015 and all it will involve

*now taking bookings for the year ahead, please feel free to call me to discuss your requirements x*…..

oh, and enjoy a few shots of a boy, a book and a bathroom!
