Enjoying the beauty of spring in Sussex

Billingshurst rape field, sussex

I love the spring and after living away from Sussex for the last 20 years it doesn’t stop surprising me with its beauty!

Whilst driving home from another of the children’s clubs last night we drove past this field.  A quick U turn and a screeching halt in a lay by I bundled the children out of the car to enjoy the moment.

This was at the edge of the lay by with the sun setting in the background, while my daughter was in the field watching it set.

They then decided they wanted to hide along the path before we jumped back in the car and headed home.Children amongst the rape seed, sussex

 

I think writing this blog and technology going wrong actually took longer to do than capturing a lovely moment with my children…

So, put down your tablet, grab a camera and go capture a moment.. happy snapping this spring x

Bluebell Sessions

Spring is on its way!!  Therefore, it won’t be long until the bluebells arrive and that means it’s time to book your session…

As bluebells only last a few weeks there will be limited dates available so if you are interested in capturing some memories of your family it’s best to book as soon as possible.  Sessions will last about 45 minutes and location will be confirmed closer to the time, once I know the most beautiful area to use.  At the moment possible locations include Barns Green, Horsham, Crawley or Billingshurst.

Love my new wall…

I wanted to share my updated wall with you because this is what photography is all about for me.

Its about capturing memories…

They don’t have to perfect studio photos, I just like to keep the good times alive for my family and to show them where they came from…

How many photos do you take each day and how many do you actually display???

 

Happy New Year…

The end of 2016 was a very busy and exciting one for me but I have been unable to share any photos as many of them were gifts for friends and families.
I had lots of babies in the studio along with their families which is always fun because the big brothers and sister don’t always want their photos taken, so ideas don’t always go to plan….Family photo session, newborn photography, Billingshurst, Horsham

but what comes out of the session are the more natural shots which actually capture the true expressions of the children.

Soul Sisters Craft Fayre

What a busy month its been.  Everyone seems to be super organised and getting their photo session booked so that they’ll have some beautiful Christmas presents.

I, however, am hoping to buy a few gifts this weekend when I’m attending the Soul Sisters Event at The Haven Centre in Crawley Down.  I will be running mini photo sessions but there will also be gift stalls, dancers, father christmas, entertainment for the children and much more.  All stalls are held by local female businesses so come along and share your support and grab some presents on the way…

Excited and Nervous…

I’m so excited as I’ve just got off the phone with some lovely ladies,  who are running a Christmas pamper day in November.  It’s going to be in Crawley Down and I’m going to be running mini photo sessions throughout the day.

Its a family event with loads for the children plus lots for the parents too.

 

More details to follow but email me at clairewildersphotography@gmail.co.uk if you wish to put your child’s name down for a mini session.  I will be taking props for various ages from newborn plus setting up for a Christmas mini shoot too.

More details to follow 😃

Making a Twig Christmas Tree

Christmas Mini Session, BillingshursyWho’d have thought I would be thinking about Christmas when it’s only October..

Preperation for a Christmas mini session needs to be early as the actual sessions will start in November, as this will enable you to order your Christmas cards etc.

I couldn’t decide on the tree for my backdrop, so after a lovely Autumn walk today with the children, I decided a Christmas Tree made out of twigs would be ideal with the winter backdrop that I am using.

What do you think? I’m rather impressed with my craft skills today. 😃👍🏼

If you are interested in a Christmas mini shoot email me at clairewildersphotography@gmail.com and I will add you to the mailing list.  The sessions are limited so it’s best to book early.

Autumn Minis coming soon….

Hey guys,

I will soon be putting together some dates for Autumn mini sessions in the Horsham and Crawley area.  If you would like me to email you details please fill out the contacts form and I will add you to the mailing list.  These sessions take half an hour so are cheaper than the full portrait session..

Hope you had a great summer.
