A hobby is so important for children and this is why I love doing sports and hobby photography in Horsham.
I am a true believer that all children should participate in sport and that it is an important part of their well being. We were very lucky that my daughter went to Southwater Junior Academy, Southwater, Horsham, Sussex where they have absolutely fantastic PE facilities. Their teacher is dedicated to providing the children with a wide range of sports to try plus they attend a huge amount of sporting events each year. Taking far more teams than any other school to ensure sport truly is for all.
There is nothing like participating in something you love surrounded by your mates.
If children are dealing with issues or stresses at school or home they’ll always have the support of their team mates and that is so IMPORTANT! Or if they participate in a solo sport it is a great way to relieve the stress of the day.
Sports also teach children resilience, to work hard and respect others, as well as helping them to focus.
It also helps them to keep fit, healthy and can even improve brain power.
BUT it’s also fun! And that’s the main one for children. They need to enjoy it.. the rest is just an added extra!
“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…
Why did I photograph my first wedding?
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 at Leonardslee Gardens in Horsham, West Sussex!! 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 to find out what it’s like photographing your first wedding! Wish me luck!

I know it’s the summer holiday BUT… how about booking in a Back to School Photo Session while your child’s uniform is still clean and tidy?
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 are mothers day photography sessions important? Let me ask you a question? Are you one of the organised people that can think of awesome presents months in advance or are you the person that leaves it to the last moment?
Whichever you are, I can help…. because I am running photo sessions to celebrate Mothers Day. We are all getting older and know that our parents won’t be around forever. But do you have any recent photos of you and your mum? Or of you and your children? We all have the excuses, I want to lose weight, I hate having my photo taken but what if you didn’t have the photo to look back on? How would you feel?
You today are who your children will look back on and your mum today is looking her best. Lets capture those beautiful memories with a Mothers Day Photography Session.
Whether it is for:
Your own mum (or dad, if from a single parent family.. it’s a celebration remember), wife, girlfriend, nanny or grandma. Daughter and her family or even just your children. The choice is yours.
I have sessions available…
How does the session work?
This day is about celebrating all mums, regardless of the age of their children, and all the amazing thing they do for us.
Whether you would like a voucher to be given on the day so that you can come at a later date as a family… or booking it prior to Mothers Day so that you can give the gift on the actual day. The choice is yours. This is a celebration of mums so feel free to bring three generations of families. I want your Mothers Day Photo Session to be memorable day providing wonderful pieces of art that you can proudly show on your wall for many years to come.
Where are the sessions held?
Depending on your family size session can be held at your home, in my home studio or outside in the garden or local park. When booking a session together we can discuss the options and which one will work better for your family.
Wall Art will also be available to purchase and will include a 10% discount to celebrate our mums!
