So those of you who know me or who have been following the blog for a while will know that there are two things that I just don't do: photographing in colour and photographing weddings. Those are things that I leave to my wonderful and immensely talented boyfriend Cambridge wedding photographer Tom Catchesides
However, as we all know, rules are there to be broken, but only on special occasions. This was certainly a special occasion. My great friend Mary got married in January and I was thrilled to be able to spend such a special day with her and her lovely new husband Joe taking their pictures.
Mary and I have known each other since we were eleven and she has never looked happier than she did on her wedding day - a truly beautiful bride and Joe looked mighty handsome too. It was a wonderful day at St Swithun's church in Hither Green and then at the Trafalgar Tavern in Greenwich.
Congratulations Mary and Joe, I love you both and wish you many many happy years together.
Here are a few favorites from the day, I could have posted the whole lot it was so hard to choose
I love taking maternity photographs. There is such excitement and expectation about the new arrival so I was very pleased to be asked to spend a morning with Carol-Anne photographing this exciting time. We had a wonderful morning, I haven't laughed that much in ages and I am thrilled with the pictures, here are a few favorites. The newborn baby images will follow soon.
Today's post is a reminder that I will be giving a seminar on children's portrait photography at Apple's flagship Regent Street store on Monday 28th February at 7pm. I'm really excited to have been invited to speak by Apple, and the event is also in association with the Royal Photographic Society. Details of how to get to Apple's Regent Street store are available here.
The seminar will be a re-working of my talk at the SWPP from which a lot of people were turned away as the room was full, so I really hope to see you there. Do be sure to come and say hello afterwards.
I am still very behind with the blog at the moment as there is so much going on with photo shoots, workshops, teaching seminars and general stuff so that it has taken me a while to blog this shoot. As you can see from the weather the shoot took place before Christmas just at the end of the snow.
I had an amazing time with Fiona and her family - both children and grandparents which made for a really wonderful day. We did all the things the kids enjoyed, baked ginger bread men, took the dog for a walk and played at home. Just lovely.
Here are a few favorites
The best thing about my job is seeing children grow up and getting to know different families so I was thrilled to be invited back by Mette for my third shoot. We like to mix it up a bit with locations for our shoots and so it was out to the park for this session and we were lucky enough to have wonderful weather and some amazing areas of long grass and wild flowers in Dulwich Park.
We had a wonderful time and I am thrilled with the pictures. I can't wait to see everyone again later in the year when the new baby is born...
