Tom & MJ engagement shoot sneak peek, Rhodes Minnis, Canterbury Kent

Last Saturday I had the wonderful job of capturing this awesome couples engagement shoot. They travelled all the way from Hampshire to spend a few hours with me. It was a mother woodland adventure and another freezing day but so worth it. They brought along their gorgeous daughter Ava who is 7 months and I had my little assistant in the shape of  my 11 year old son. Ava adored Indie and was full of cute smiles for him. After our exploration in the woods we decided to drive to my mother in law to be which was only round the corner to finish up the shoot with some different shots, whilst little lady sat indoors with her Nanny by the fire. These two were awesome and their DIY wedding sounds amazing with a hint of harry potter as a theme - I get to go to Hampshire to capture it. I love their story of how they met at Reading festival!! 

Their images consist of some classic and alternative styles and I really adore the mixture. I did a bit of experimenting using a technique I have learned via Sam Hurd - an american photographer called prisming using a prism in front of the lens I love the double exposure style effect its has without being a double exposure.

The Best of 2015 | Kent Wedding Photography

So 2015 was a very productive year for me, it enabled me to grow as a photographer and tick off some things off my photography bucket list. I got to go abroad and do my first destination wedding in Spain. My work also got published in a bridal magazine which was completely and utterly amazing and something I have wanted for a long time and 2015 allowed me to have the guts and confidence to go for it.

I also got engaged to my boy no date set though as I am running put of free weekends as 2016 and 2017 look to be my busiest years. I am so bloody excited about it!! 

I have selected some images of what I feel are my favourites, but art is open to interpretation and what I like may not be what someone else likes. These images however were chosen based on a lot of things - technical skill, beautiful light, a moment caught on camera but unknown to the couple, love and finally realising a creative idea and seeing a collaboration come together.

I have been slack in updating my blog - a mother of 4, christmas and new year meant my children wanted me all to themselves. I felt so guilty though but loved having my herd with me.

So thank you 2015 for being so cool!



Christmas Baby Photoshoot, Herne Bay Kent

I had the lovely job of photographing Oliver again in a themed christmas photoshoot. I have photographed him before when he was first born and also did a bump photoshoot with Beth his mummy at 35 weeks. Now 10 weeks old its amazing how different he looks!! He is getting chunky and doesn't feel as light as what he did ha! He was on top form though like a true demanding model but as always a babies needs comes first so we waited patiently :0) We had an array of outfits my favourite being the no more sprouts bodysuit!! Super cute! 


Baby Oliver he is here! Herne Bay, Kent

The little man finally arrived after a gorgeous bump shoot in Whitstable, Kent it was so lovely to meet the new edition and what a poser he was! Baby Oliver was two weeks old at the photoshoot and he was so sleepy and yummy and if I am honest it made me a little broody and I had numerous cuddles with the little dude. I can't wait to do his Christmas themed pictures as well, something I have not done before but being an all out Christmas lover it is right up my street! So expect to see them on here soon! Yummy isn't he. :0)
