Sassterclass | Preview

Here and there, usually around once a year, I sign up for a course/workshop/mentoring session to try and improve what I do.. I look back on my images and see how I can push myself more, try and become more efficient behind the scenes and hopefully create better images than before.. I’m usually trying to look at the world around me with fresher eyes.

Last week I headed down to Birmingham for the ‘Sassterclass’, run by Sassy at Assassynation. Sassy is known for going above and beyond to get shots with amazing impact, and I trusted she would help push my work further;  I definitely came away feeling like I’d had a creative kick up the arse.

Here is a little preview.. more to come soon.

Bryde & Rob | Maternity Portraits

It was amazing to se Bryde and Rob again.. I photographed their wedding last August and was blown away by what a gorgeous couple they made.. relaxed and laughing throughout a wedding day which was all about them, their family and friends. Bryde emailed asking whether I’d be interested in doing some ‘bump and baby’ portraits (which is a new package I’ll be working on and revealing details of soon) and I jumped at the chance to catch up with them and get some photographs of them both at this stage..

Here are the results of the first half of their bump-to-baby portraits. Their little boy is due ten days after their first wedding anniversary. The three of them make my heart melt..Bryde Rob maternity bump pregnancy photography -5 Bryde Rob maternity bump pregnancy photography -1 Bryde Rob maternity bump pregnancy photography -2 Bryde Rob maternity bump pregnancy photography -3 Bryde Rob maternity bump pregnancy photography -4 Bryde Rob maternity bump pregnancy photography -6All rights reserved.

One {personal work}

..the first of many to come. I’ll do a full post about being mentored by Joanna Brown in the next week or so but I still need to digest a lot of what I learnt.. My head is spinning and running away with itself but in a really good way. I adore my couples and their weddings, and this year I’m going to be doing more personal work just for me than before. And challenging myself. I’m not good at having my photograph taken, and I find it very difficult to look at and like photographs of myself, I usually like to hide behind someone for a bit of security – self portraiture is something I’ve wanted to tackle in a project for a little while now.. (ok there’s still one hiding behind a camera..)
