Autumn is here, I hate the rain!

So its been raining for the last 2 weeks, I'm so gutted as I love October! I love the beautiful colors and all the leaves are so fun to play in! so I have a great offer of the classic package with a free USB of all printable images! But the rain has ambushed us! Although when it clears up I'm going to take the family and take some of the children, just for me :)

I've had 2 charity events last month both in a week of each other where I was asked to take photos and do a photo booth, I used my flash gun, which I still need somewhat practice on!

But here is the 1st event, Diabetes charity in memory of "Woody"

I was happy to do this as my Granddad has Diabetes and my Granny did and my friends husband so its close to the heart.





The second event was for L.I.V.E.S which is runs alongside the ambulance service, my best friend volunteered here for ma years and they have also helped me on a personal bassis so again I was happy to cover the event.

They had a barn dance with a band who did dancing and it was so much fun!

Both these events I donated £1 per every print sale to the charity.





Then at the weekend I had one of my favorite shoots.....BABIES!!! :)

8 week old Jake, I 'm happy with the photos, they came out nice and sharp and I got to use my moon prop and he was pretty good and slept for me. I used natural light like I do with most of my newborn work.













I also have my Christmas and Halloween offers up.

Its been quite slow this month, but that's okay because I've been working on my admin work, I have finally re branded myself, re written my wedding contract, got lots of marketing leaflets done. Organized my portfolio, organized my hard drive! Re done my price list, found better suppliers but I still seam to have so much to do!

In mummy news, My 6 month old son is crawling! :) #proudmummymoment Ive also started weening him.

Plus I have some very exciting news, but I can;t spill till its finalized!

Oh and I'm super excited about the Just pose workshop at the end of the month, I have booked my hotel and my train ticket ready and so excited to learn new skills!

Bumps and Newborns

So recently I've had 2 great sessions, that are my favorite kind!

Bumps and Newborns!

The first session didn't go as planned, I only got a couple of pictures but Mum bought her back and we had a better session, so here is teeny tiny 6 day old princess:



8 days old <3








& I had my second installment with Ruya doing her 28 week bump photos :) She's doing an excellent job, many health problems but was so brave on her shoot and I did it all with natural light and I'm happy with he outcome :)










So my flash lights have broken, I'm not too thrilled about that, I really need to find the energy to look at them! 

I've booked my hotel and train for my intensive 3 day Photography course in London :) I'm so excited! Its costing me an arm and a leg though! But I know it will be worth it, I'm hoping to go full time in January- well if I can work out childcare for the little munchkin <3

Thats me for now. x

Summer minis sessions

So my new lens arrived and its made working in my space much easier :)
I had a mad 3 days of mini sessions :)

I used a mix of natural light and flash light with 3 different backgrounds set up for a swift workflow :)

Here are the results:



































My high key has improved vastly :)

So earlier in the week I had a family session with mainly edits, they loved their images although I cant put them online yet as they are a birthday present. 

This Month is also my second Birthday :) I've been in business for 2 years! <3

I photographed my 850 likes appreciation competition winners and unfortunately my lights failed mid shoot so i am rather disappointing and pretty discombobulated right now. I'm in the middle of editing them. 

Its a bit slow at the moment, but I'm okay with that, I have a 5 month old baby that needs his mummy. Talking about that I need to update his pictures! 

So thats me for now :)
