Bring forth May flowers.
It's hard to believe that we photographed in the exact spot in the Surrey North Downs only a few weeks ago in the snow. And look at it now. Instead of white snow, it is raining the most beautiful spring petals. So grateful that spring has finally arrived and we can venture outdoors again to create beautiful family portraits that are totally unposed.
If you are looking for a Surrey family photographer to document your days just as they are, I would love to hear from you. I love nothing better than creating beautiful, timeless family portraits. I service most areas in London, Surrey and surrounding counties. Spring sessions are fully booked and Summer 2018 is filling up quickly. xx
“Happiness is a warm puppy.” ~ Charles M. Schulz
Our puppy is growing fast. Every day she is bigger, calmer, and more house trained. Just like a newborn, she was little for such a short period of time, that I can hardly remember it. Good thing that despite all the chaos of those early days that I managed to squeeze in a few photos to remember it!
The light on this particular afternoon was flat, overcast and grey which is not my favourite light to work with. However this light can be used to create moody, interesting images, and I think they tell a story that is worth telling, and remembering: the afternoons of slow ramblings on the Surrey Hills with my small people.
If you would like some relaxed, natural, unposed family portraits in time for Christmas, do get in touch soon. Bookings for 2017 are almost fully booked with just a few spaces left.
We played flower princesses yesterday in the garden, and this is the result. I’m not sure who had more fun but I have a sneaky suspicion it was me. I was pleased to finally get one half of my final backdrop assignment for the CLG Advanced Course completed with these. All the stars were finally in alignment with the toddler asleep, the rain had just stopped, the 6 year old was feeling co-operative, and willing to be my flower princess for a few seconds. I had been wanting a shot of her lying in a field of daises that have been flowering recently, and are just SO amazing. But she was having none of it, finding the grass was too scratchy, and too many bugs etc, etc. But I managed to get these yesterday, using flowers from the garden. Not the original idea, but not too far off. A bit of a cliche perhaps, but what girl doesn't secretly hide an inner flower princess.
Earlier this week I completed Summer Murdock’s Magic of Light Workshop. I was so excited to get a seat as they are quite hard to come by. The past 3 weeks have been a complete whirlwind, and I loved every second of it. Here are a few light studies that I worked on for the course. I can’t wait to see how these new tools that I have learnt will impact my work in the coming months. I have so many new techniques to master, and I feel like I’m just at the very beginning!
