The Blog is Moving

I wanted to let everyone know that our Blog is moving. The new blog address is:

We have a little bit of tweaking still to do, but all future updates will now be on the new Blog. I have transferred some of the posts from here to the new Blog so why now pop over and have a look.

Photo Shoot with a 1 Year Old

Over the past year I have done two photo shoots with Alfie. The first was as a newborn and then I went back when he was sitting. As he was turning 1 it was time to do the last photo shoot making the first year of his life. He was having a first birthday party at Ray Lodge Farm s I arranged to go along before the party and do some fairly informal shots of Alfie with his Mum and Dad.

I really enjoyed doing these shots and it has been fantastic to see how much Alfie has changed during this first year of his life. Congratulations, also, to Caroline and Julian who are expecting their second baby next year.

These are some of my favourites from the day...

Happy Halloween

I know, it's a day late but I just couldn't resist putting up this image of a very special cupcake:

We saw them at a Wedding Fair we went to last month and we brought some home as we thought they would make great season images. Watch out for the Christmas ones!

I hope everyone had a great time last night. We certainly had plenty of Trick or Treaters knocking on our door. Fortunately we had plenty of sweets to give them:)

Newborn Photo Shoot

Yesterday I had the pleasure of doing a newborn photo shoot with baby Alyssa. She is the daughter of Iain's niece and she has to be the most content baby I have ever met. She was joined in the photo shoot by Mum (Theresa), Dad (Will) and her older brother (Tyler).

I have been lucky enough to do several baby photo shoots over the past few weeks and I really do love being able to capture these memories of such early stage in a baby's life. Alyssa was so content that I thought we weren't going to get any images at all with her awake. You certainly need lots of patience when doing this type of photography! Anyway, we got there in the end and I really do love the results. What a truly gorgeous addition to the family...

We will do the next photo shoot at around 3 months, then when she is sitting and the last one will be when she is standing/walking. I can't wait to see how she changes and develops over the next year.

Teenage Photo Shoot

Earlier this year I did a family photo shoot in Crawley, West Sussex. We got some really great images from the photo shoot and one of them now has pride of place in our new Studio in East Grinstead. I arrange a follow-up with session with Oleta on Monday this week, as it was half-term. I arranged for Make Up Artist, Siobhan Woods, to come over and help out so as soon as Oleta arrived she had her make up done. We started off with a studio session and then moved outside to do some environmental shots. We didn't have to go far from the studio to find some great outside spaces.

I really enjoyed the session and think we got some fantastic images. Here are some of my favourites. I'd love to receive feedback or comments.
