Making a Twig Christmas Tree

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. ūüėÉūüĎćūüŹľ

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.

Victorian Models for Tailors Through Time

Victorian Models for Tailors Through Time

Such fun day today…

It was a wonderful family occasion working for my Aunt who is an extremely talented seamstress and runs “Tailors through Time”.

She has been very busy designing and making each and every outfit as it would’ve been made during the Victorian era, so that she can take them¬†into the local schools of Crawley, Horsham and the surrounding area and¬†provide workshops for Year 3 and 6.

The plan today was to go to Weald and Downland museum so the children could have a look round ¬†and try on the outfits in the beautiful museum setting. ¬†Due to the rain though, we ended up bringing the photo shoot session forward and the children had a great time trying on the outfits and testing out their “Victorian” poses in the studio instead.

I’m really excited about editing the photos but here is one sneak preview of all the children together in the amazing period costumes. ¬†If you are a teacher and are interested in Victorian workshops for Year 3 and 6, these outfits are absolutely beautiful and your students will love to try them on. Colour versions and closes up to follow….

The models here are:

Hayden – age 10, Katie – age 10, Maddie – age 8, Alfie – age 7, Harvey – age 6 and Bailey the dog – age 9 and as you can see the outfits fit them perfectly.

Exciting times with Fit Mummy

I had an exciting meeting this week with Sarah from Fit Mummy.

As a photographer I love capturing photos of newborn babies and children but as a mum who loves sport I understand how hard it is to fit in exercise.

Sarah and Lizzie are both fitness instructors and mums who realised that there is little in the way of exercise for mums to be and mums once the babies arrive so between them they have designed some wonderful classes. ¬†They provide pre and¬†post natal classes¬†once your baby arrives. ¬†The wonderful thing about these classes is that you can attend them with your baby. ¬†It’s a wonderful way to lose your baby weight but without having to leave you gorgeous new baby with someone else. ¬†Being a new mum can also be a lonely time as you adjust to looking after something so fragile but Fit mummy sessions also provides a great social network.

Sarah and I have decided to join together to show new mums what opportunities are available. I will be attending some of the classes to meet the Fit Mummies and to capture some photos of them with their babies participating in the sessions with Sarah and Lizzie. 

I will also be offering Fit Mummies a special discount with will enable them the ability to have a photo session to capture either some maternity photos or newborn photos once the baby has been born. ¬†Watch this space because more information will be coming soon….

Postponed newborn photo session….

Postponed newborn photo session….

Unfortunately today’s newborn photography session had to be postponed, which does happen when working with brand new babies and their mummas. ¬†My studio in Billingshurst was all set up and ready to go so I couldn’t decide what to do with my new three hours of spare time.Victorian practise (1 of 5)

In my head a list as long as my arm was forming but instead…..Victorian practise (3 of 5)

 

Practise won…. but no babies…..ummm…… dolls and teddies it is though… Slightly harder to pose than a gorgeously new squishy baby but there is definitely less poo and wee. ¬†I also really enjoyed using the new back drop, baby bed and antique pram though and can’t wait to put them into practise.

The website is almost finished….

Wow…

I never realised how hard a website would be… actually yes I did because I have no idea about how this thing actually works. ¬†The whole internet, websites is a complete mystery. ¬†Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that this is still a work in progress website and for those of you that visit-Thank you.

While I am finishing it all off please do not hesitate to have a look around and give me feedback on what you think.  If you want to book a session I would love for you to get in touch so that I can move away from this desk..

Take care and have a great day
