Brendon and Bruna’s Wedding

Gosh I can’t believe how long it was since I last blogged!

I thought I would write about Brendon and Bruna’s brilliant wedding. 

It all started at home with the girls kicking it off to a tremendous start. There were probably the most laughs I’ve seen, and very little nerves by all account which is so nice to see as most brides are frantically trying to organise family or worrying about something or someone! I knew a couple of the girls well so I really felt like part of the morning preparations. 

The pair got married in a beautiful  church in Cowley  with a really traditional catholic service. The boys were obviously running late with most of their friends already there, they were still finishing of getting dressed as they were entering the church, no time for any formal shots of them but that’s ok as they only wanted a minimum of these. 

The drinks really started flowing as soon and Brendon and Bruna arrived back in Freehand,they arrived in their friends brown VW convertible, they clearly were having an amazing time. They had hired a cocktail camper van and a bouncy castle for the kids (but as you can imagine the adults had the most fun!) I finished at the wedding breakfast which has a Brazilian theme. 

Thanks Brendon and Bruna for sharing this great day with me. So pleased you love the images.

Bluebells!

I went for a beautiful walk at the weekend with my boys and noticed the blue shoots are coming out. You can never quite predict when they will appear but judging on our mild weather I think they will be in full bloom within the next couple of weeks.

I took some lovely images last year when Barney was just eight weeks old with his older brother Sammy. We had such a wonderful morning together and finished it off with a little picnic in the woods together. I will definitely return in a few weeks to re-capture them as Barney will soon be on his feet.

Having a photo-shoot in the woods at this magical time of year is great for all ages. I have a couple of great woodland locations with an abundance amount of bluebells if you fancy joining me for a photo-shoot with your children or family.

I am also offering 5 complimentary midweek photo-shoots throughout April and early May. Please send me an email or call on 01869 233647 if you are interested so we can look at dates.

Happy 1st Birthday Barney!

I can’t believe a year tomorrow my beautiful little Barney is turning 1!

I was so extravagant with his older brother, holding him a massive 1st birthday party in our back garden. Barney however is having a more low key affair with some of our lovely close friends for lunch with some pizza, jelly and birthday cake.

I took some photos on our bed almost a year ago when Barney was born and then some more today. It’s so important to capture those special moments as they can never be re captured, its only when you look back on them you realise how special they really are and how quick time passes.

If you want some beautiful photos taken of your family, I can travel to your home, meet you on location or you can book a studio shoot with me in Upper Heyford.

 

Happy birthday Barney Bear x

Make-up Photo-shoo

Joy came to me for a photo-shoot for some beautiful imagery of herself. I couldn’t believe it when she told me she was 70! We arranged a make-up artist to give her a really professional finish. Joy decided to go for nice natural make-up with a smart/casual look. We had a good chin-wag through the shoot and lots of laughs! I love working with the children and parents of the families I photograph but sometimes it’s a real treat to work with adults. It’s Valentines Day coming up so why not give your husband a really personal gift and treat yourself at the same time! Please do give me a call to discuss.

Glympton Estate Photo-Shoot

Last year we photographed some of the primary school children at the amazing ‘Little Wild Things’ in Charlbury.

I always enjoy photographing at ‘Little Wild Things’ as it’s a great wooded environment that children can play safely and learn about the woods with the fabulous Charlotte and Chris. They come up with different innovative ideas each week for the children to do. I think some of my favourites are dinosaur egg hunting and the Gruffalo!

It’s a wonderful place to capture natural imagery of the children learning and playing in the woods.

Rebecca loved the images so much of her son that she asked me to photograph some natural images of her family in Glympton where she lives. This was an extra bonus for me as it’s where I used to live with my husband and our eldest son Sam. The last time I ventured here was when we got married and had our own special photographs taken. It was a really nostalgic morning for me however the boys made it such fun that it really reminded me that I must take some of my own once Barney is up on his feet!
