A very exciting Pregnancy reveal – Family session.

 

 

A month or so ago, I got a message out of the blue from a lady I’ve known forever. She had some very exciting news and was hoping when the time came, I could be the one to photograph the announcement. Well of course I jumped at the chance, and we set about planning. Yesterday her scan day finally arrived, and at 4pm we met up to take some very special photographs. Its official I LOVE doing pregnancy announcement sessions!

 

Please do just pop me a message if you’d love to do something similar!

A mothers day special – Family session.

 

 

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Amy – the mothers day facebook competition winner – for her special session. We met in a totally brand new location for me, Longton Brickcroft. Up until that session, I had absolutely non clue it existed and its such a gorgeous location! Anyway, the session went beautifully. Along with her daughter  – the most adorable little dolly ever!- Mum, sister-in-law and nephew, we had a little trek around, capturing lots as went.

Thanks so much Amy!

An afternoon at Brockholes – Family session.

 

I’ve been running my Family portrait offer since December and I’m so glad I did! These sessions have been the perfect way to meet lots of families that otherwise wouldnt really have booked. With them only being 20 minutes long and being a very simple set up. These are perfect for people that aren’t altogether keen on having their photo taken.

Anyway, one of the families that took advantage of the offer where the Turvey Family. And what a GORGEOUS day it was! I managed to grab some truly beautiful photos for their session at Brockholes. Though it didn’t go wholly to plan, with one of the boys feeling really poorly, but they stuck it out and I am so glad they did! It was like our first little taste of spring.

 

A last minute at home session – Family session.

 

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Rachael with a very urgent request. Her sister in-law and her beloved nephew Jin were over from Japan and they desperately wanted to capture some family memories before they went back – which was only a couple of days away! Anyway off I went, and what an absolutely lovely family. from the second I arrived I was given the warmest of welcomes. It was such a joy to capture their bond, and the entire session flashed by in a haze of laughter. These naturally flowing sessions are my favourite!

 

Last session of 2017, The Corner family. – Family session.

 

On a VERY cold wintry day, just two days before Christmas, I met the lovely Corner family in Moor Park in Preston. Jenna was the winner of my Christmas competition over on the Facebook page and she genuinely was so happy to have won! I absolutely loved this session – I know I say this all the time, but I just get so invested! ha ha- Anyway, the whole clan were just a dream to shoot, the teenagers didn’t get too bored, the toddlers kept their focus. It really was the perfect way to end 2017!

 

Roman’s Christening. – Family lifestyle

 

Back at the beginning of December, I shot my very first Christening. Little Roman was so well behaved on his very special day and it was so lovely to revolve a session around family at one of their get togethers. Tia was I think the most relaxed person I’ve ever had a session with, when asked by me about any specific images she wants capturing her reply was “Oh you just what you usually do, I trust you.” Which I think was just what every photographer wants to hear. It really was such a wonderful ceremony to be a part of.

 

A Wintery trip to Brockholes – Family session.

 

Way back in November, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting the White Family. Both Gemma and Greg wanted some lovey photos of their little family, but most importantly they wanted a family portrait so they could send them out as Christmas presents. From the get go, this family were just so perfect to shoot! Both boys played happily, the whole thing was just so natural and lovely to be a part of.

I genuinely cant wait to be back shooting this family again!

 

A very traditional Christmas – Family session.

 

Last weekend the northwest was treated to the most glorious Snowy Saturday. I managed to get out with the girls early that morning, but I also had a session booked for that afternoon too! Chloe had contacted me months and months ago to get this pre-Christmas session booked in so it was nothing sort of a miracle that when our session day came it was just a winter wonderland outside. She’s chosen the most gorgeous dresses for her girls (Bows and bespoke) and we’d even been extra cautious with a Plan B location at a nearby traditional sweet shop. As you can tell though, absolutely everything went perfectly to plan… Well little Ivy wasn’t best pleased, but we did manage to get some shots of her and big sister Halle completely stole the show anyway!

 

Halloween mini-session day – Family lifestyle.

 

I have been planning this day for weeks, the last week planning frantically, making sure every little detail has been taken care off. Well, last Saturday it happened, I hosted my first mini-session day and I think I can say, genuinely it was a brilliant success. It was freezing and it rained most of the day, but it didn’t stop the constant stream of excited kids all dressed up and ready to shoot. Honestly, it was just so absolutely brilliant, and I can’t wait to do it again! The day started off with  me going through my supplies, double and triple checking that I had everything packed. My sister/assistant for the day turned up just after half 10 and we set off over to the location. The first thing that needed to happen was a giant clean up, it was just full of crap people had dumped. Anyway, once everything had been tidied up, we set to work creating the back drop and before I knew it our first session group had arrived! We had a couple of minor hiccups through the day, nothing major but pretty much all of them revolved around the smoke bombs! Just when we thought we had it all figured out, the wind would change direction and leave me with a face full of smoke!

Anyway, long story short, I had an absolute blast, and from the feedback I’ve received since, so did everyone who came, which was everything I wanted. Massive thank you to all the children and parents for their efforts on Saturday. I’ll keep you all updated about my next one!

Happy Halloween!

 

Fiona, Michael & Sebastian – The first family session of Autumn.

 

With Summer over, its time to move with the seasons into Autumn. For the first of Autumns family seasons, I got to meet up with the lovely Turner family. Fiona, Michael and Sebastian were a joy to photograph, we met in a woodlands local to them – which was actually brilliant because it helped them feel much more comfortable – And little Sebastian wasted no time jumping in those muddy puddles, gathering sticks and roaming through the brambles. It was a really beautiful session to be a part of, and such a wonderful family to watch together. All in all, a brilliant way to start the Autumn off.
