A personal post.. Life has started to fly by again as wedding season kicks in, at this end we’re trying to take time between my husband finishing his Masters and me wed-iting to grab some moments to spend as a family. Here is a little post about how the past few months have been spent..
As the year trundles on my work load is growing, and I’m loving being back into the swing of seeing people marry and being lucky enough to photograph it, and really enjoying being that bit busier and running about a bit more..
Last month I did my first wedding fair.. (And some of my photos from it were blogged on Love My Dress here..)
We took a little family mini-break.. I took a photographers’ trip away on the Welcome Break..
Lots more family shoots coming up this month..
Trying to squeeze in more personal work and keep trying new things.. (hopefully more projects to come..)
We have a new niece or nephew and cousin for Vivienne due next month (So. Excited.).. Heading to Italy for Rosie & Jon’s wedding (and maybe a few days to relax and enjoy a few glasses of wine sitting outside a gorgeous cafe somewhere..?) And, perhaps more importantly, making time to enjoy the sun and relax, play, BBQ, chill out, enjoy date nights and muck around outside while Summer lasts with David and Vivienne..
A few below from my Instagram.. Since getting a new phone I’m a convert.. Also loving the A Beautiful Mess app for doodling over your photos..
What are your plans for Summer?

For a while I’ve been looking at pushing myself in new ways. I’ve wanted to do more portraiture work for a while but, for some reason, I was scared to give it a go. Being scared is ridiculous (and also a bad excuse) considering I usually do wedding photography, a long day full of details, guests, pressure and.. well.. a lot of portraits of the bride and groom.
I wanted to spend around an hour just capturing Elizabeth and trying a few new processing techniques. I wanted to improve how I direct my subject to get the images in my head.. to try working in a different setting and to try to use my camera and work my post processing in a different way than I’m used to. On the day we had a pretty even light, it didn’t rain (always a bonus), Elizabeth is stunning and she was up for getting into bushes, lying on the floor and later happily pulled twigs and pine cones out from her hair in the name of a few pictures. Hopefully these pictures show how I see her, beautiful, with her huge dark eyes and long ombre hair..
I’m looking to do much more one-on-one portraiture work where I can fit it in – an hour or so in different locations to keep pushing and keep experimenting. Please drop me an email at email@example.com if you are willing to help me with my project work and spend a little time in front of my camera (not too scary I promise) in return for a disk of images.
