I constantly get asked…
“Do you photograph weddings?”
And my answer has always been…
“No, that’s WAY too much pressure! Imagine photographing the wedding and messing it up? That’s the brides day ruined…no memories…I couldn’t take that kind of pressure.
Then there is the other side from “Wedding Photographers” who will tell you…
“Don’t do it unless you are totally ready!!”
“Everyone thinks they can be a photographer but it’s way harder to be a wedding photographer!”
“Never photograph a friends wedding, that’s just asking for trouble!!”
“You need to get training before you even attempt it!”
“Being a guest and a photographer at the wedding never works”
So, I never did…
A wonderful friend of mine was getting married and asked ME to be her photographer! Of course I said no. Was she crazy… I couldn’t do that! But she insisted…
“It’s a relaxed affair, think of it as a garden party! I just want to capture something from the day and have some memories of my friends and family coming together to help me celebrate.”
Ok, I could photograph a party, that’s ok! So we agreed, I would attend the wedding as a friend but also take my camera (let’s be honest, we ALL take our camera to the wedding anyway!)
And that was it.
I was going to photograph their wedding! I had already done their baby photos and that went like a dream so I knew Holly was just as relaxed as they came!
Holly never changed! She was absolutely wonderful and put ME at ease! I was so nervous before the day but that was all me, nothing but calm came from my wonderful bride to be!
So what happened next….. You’ll have to wait until the next blog!
I know it’s the summer holiday BUT…
Does your life get really busy when the children go back to school and the last thing on your mind is school photos?
Then the day arrives and your children come home and tell you they’ve had their photos taken? That’s when you realise they’re wearing that really dirty school jumper, their face is grubby and they haven’t had their hair cut…
But home comes the photo proof and you still buy it… even though you hate it but you’ve promised to send Nan and Granddad their yearly photos of the children!
Then child number 2 comes home with their photo proof and you have to spend even more money on their photos as well!!
Isn’t it so annoying when the children are at different schools.. everything becomes so much more expensive!
How about this year doing something DIFFERENT, EASIER & CHEAPER!?!?!

Why have a photo session for a new baby, isn’t life crazy enough without having to schedule in a session as soon as they arrive?
You are quite right, the first weeks are crazy and therefore go past in a blur.
However, by planning ahead,while you are pregnant, you will appreciate being able to have a session that lasts a couple of hours but the memories will be there forever. Babies grow so fast you quickly forget how gorgeous they looked when they first arrived and how tiny they were.
This session allows you to capture those gorgeous features forever while having a few hours to sit back and relax!
If you would like more information do not hesitate to get in touch…
Has that time come around already…?
Your little baby is about to leave school and move onto the next chapter..
and all that’s left is …. PROM
They asked for a new outfit, shoes, hair and make up plus a car to take them there…
Why not book in a PHOTO SESSION to capture those memories for years to come??
(GROUP PHOTOS CAN BE TAKEN IF EACH PERSON HAS BOOKED AN INDIVIDUAL SESSION)
A 20-30 minute photo session is
3 digital images
These sessions will be held in Southwater and are limited so to avoid disappointment book yours early.
