Sara, Paul, Edie & Bump {Maternity Shoot}

Ahhh what can I say about Sara, Paul, Edit and bump…. I first met them when they enquired about their wedding photography and we all wandered around the park last Autumn for some family photographs (after which Edie named me ‘Sally from the forest’, which I just loved..). Sara sent me an email quite soon afterwards asking me to change the date to an entire year later as she was expecting number two, which has turned out to be a little sister for Edie!

I met up with them all in their colourful family home for some photographs of them all at this stage.. imminently awaiting the wonderful chaos that will be their new addition.

I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to be part of their story.. STP - Bump Shoot-001 STP - Bump Shoot-005 STP - Bump Shoot-009 STP - Bump Shoot-011 STP - Bump Shoot-013 STP - Bump Shoot-015

Bryde, Rob and Harry | Family/Newborn Shoot

It was completely wonderful to go and meet baby Harry and see his Mum and Dad again.. from what Facebook shows me he’s grown and changed so quickly already, but here are a few frames from his newborn shoot we did back in August. He is completely scrummy and I really hope to see him again for another cuddle in the future..

Moving.. Weddings.. Chaos.. AKA Life recently.

The past few weeks have been such a blur, which is why it’s been a little quiet around here. Here is a little breakdown of what’s been going on..

Gorgeous couple Sarah and Lee married at Hall Garth in Darlington in an outdoor ceremony.. they smiled like this all day long..

Kirsty and Mark ran away to the Lake District and married in front of a handful of family and friends in a secret ceremony, then we went for a boat ride around Lake Windermere..Kirsty & Mark -1

I met Harry! I photographed Bryde and Rob’s wedding last August, their maternity shoot a month or so ago and 10-day-old Harry this weekend. Scrummy.269823_527210263999221_1603087603_n leeds-wedding-photographer-12

A family shoot within a birthday party.. lots of bouncing and bubbles.. wonderful chaos.leeds-wedding-photographer-2

My own not-so-little Vivienne turned four.. I still can’t believe it. She’s a dream.leeds-wedding-photographer-1

We moved house and traded Middlesbrough for Leeds. We’ve been in this house for a few years, and although I never particularly liked it, it’s now full of our memories. Vivienne has grown up a lot here and I think she was pretty sad to leave.. especially once we explained we weren’t moving the house..

Boxes, boxes, boxes. Lots of driving up and down between Middlesbrough and Leeds. Last date night in Middlesbrough with Dav. Stolen moments with Vivienne and her cousins. LOTS of food.leeds-wedding-photographer-85 leeds-wedding-photographer-7

It’s been tough but I’m really excited to see how we make Leeds ‘our place’.. the boxes won’t get unpacked for weeks no doubt.. and while we’ve been so busy Vivienne has been having adventures with grandparents in London and the Lake District.. she’s having a wonderful Summer but unfortunately we don’t have a huge amount of time to share as many parts of it as we’d like at the moment. Every time I see her I could eat her, and can’t wait until we settle in and back into more of a (as much as I thought I hated this word) routine. leeds-wedding-photographer-4Hope you’re all enjoying your summers.. I have a few more weddings this weekend and a busy September.. but I promise to take more time to blog it all as I go! Happy days xx
