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!

autumn family photoshoot sandy photographer

autumn family photoshoot sandy photographer

well, i like to think i can keep up with most, but this little one definitely gave me a run for my money! her boundless energy was infectious, we ran, we jumped, we climbed (and i got puffed out!) she was all that a 6 year old should be, inquisitive, confident and playful and it was a joy to photograph her and her parents.

mum said she wanted photo’s that were “lively, colourful and joyful” pictures that showed the connection between mother and daughter and father and daughter too. i hope i delivered, here are the results (well, a few of my favourites)…

(if you would like your own family shoot, i would love to hear from you…just use the links below x)

twinkle twinkle little star angels with dirty faces photography

twinkle twinkle little star angels with dirty faces photography

this little man gets my vote for little star this year. i first met him when i had the pleasure of photographing him at only a few weeks old, he behaved like a perfect gentleman then. the second time we met was at his christening, last month…again he was such a bless!

as friends and family arrived he peered through his big brown eyes taking it all in. his two godmother’s took it in turns to hold him throughout the christening and he gurgled happily at the priest. he did create a little as he was dipped..but who wouldn’t? it must have been a bit of a shock!

it was a beautiful ceremony, relaxed and the love for this little man was apparent on all the faces watching. i felt honoured to be part of his special moment!

here are a few of my favourites of the occasion, the parents received both black and white and colour images.

if you would like your special occasion recorded, i would love to hear from you

it’s all about location hertfordshire photographer

it’s all about location hertfordshire photographer

i love my job, and the many different challenges each session brings. each and every client will have a different vision of what they want and will listen to this and make suggestions on location depending on their needs.  this week i did a photo shoot for a gorgeous (grown up) couple who needed an urban backdrop for their images, (watch this space for more of that later, the photos are top secret until xmas!) this meant i had to find the perfect location for that shoot, so off i went searching, dragging my lovely model around hertfordshire car parks!

the following images were taken at the top of The Galleria, Hatfield. it wasn’t the location we ended up using, but i loved the results anyway! i think it makes a great background for a teenage photoshoot, it suits perfectly an attitude and a bit of grunge! if you are interested in getting your tweens/teens in front of the camera before you have no say over what they do, i would love to hear from you.

*ps, the “teen” in these shots is my daughter… and yes, she does smile, she’s just perfecting her pout!*

luca and georgia welwyn garden city photographer

i’m pleased to be able to finally share this shoot, this was another one which had to be kept under wraps for a while, another surprise birthday present!

it was so nice to get to know these two, we spent time in their garden, capturing moments spent on the swing that their dad made them. they are both keen musicians, so we included the violin and piano in a few of the shots, then ventured out into the woods for some more casual photos.

we got rained on, but the sun did shine for a while…i think it was their smiles that lit up the woods the most though!

here are a few favourites from that shoot…

42 days of summer hertfordshire photographer

42 days of summer hertfordshire photographer

last year i did a project 365, a photo a day for a year. i really enjoyed the challenge and the results are my diary for that year, memories cherished. i was ready for a break though, or so i thought. a few months on and i began to miss it, so i decided on a mini project…42 days of summer…a photo a day throughout the summer holidays. a reminder of our summer, gone by so quickly, each image once again tells a story. they keep me warm as the days grow cold.

it is said that kids age you, but i think it’s more true to say that they keep us young. as all mine grow older i treasure our moments spent idling the days away. i quickly forget the bickering, teenage arguments and tears. i look back on these photo’s and am reminded of the laughter, the silliness and our little adventures together. i am so proud of them all.

so thank you kids

thank you for the days…

here are our 42 days of summer x

as soon as i met this family of 10, i knew we were going to have a fun shoot! the children bounded along as we wandered to our location and i heard how the family visiting from new zealand were able to do so as they had won tickets from a photography competition (…perhaps it shouldn’t have been me taking the shots?!)

i love the energy in these photo’s and the gorgeous early autumn mist that gave way as the morning passed, to that golden sun that fell softly onto the children’s faces as they played in the long grass. i think it’s fair to say that autumn is my favourite season for photo shoots!

i hope these photo’s stand as a reminder of your time together and your “special” birthday. (i won’t say how special!) it was a real pleasure to capture you all.

*if you would like to book your own autumn shoot, please feel free to contact me…*

i love the woods, and this family think the same so we decided on a shoot in sherrardswood, welwyn garden.

mum wanted some family shots, and what struck me was their closeness, it was lovely to see their connection with each other.

(maisy, the dog came along too…although she couldn’t sit still for too long!)

here are just a few of my favourites from the session…
