There is always something fun about shoots when the unexpected happens. While playing on the grass at the park this week we spotted an older boy with a remote controlled bird. When he realised that we were interested in it he flew it over and around us - so much fun!
We also had lots of fun in the sandpit and playing in my favorite sculpture.
Here are a few favorite pictures
I can't believe how busy this summer has become, and I do hope everyone will forgive me for being a little slow in getting things on the blog at the moment, I am away far more than I am at home as I race around the country photographing families during these last weeks of the school holidays.
It was weeks ago I blogged the first half of my weekend with Sue and her lovely family. Today I am putting up the second day - the children's christening which was an absolutely awesome day. The weather was beautiful, the church lovely with a fantastic vicar who really made the service appeal to the other children who sat around the font so they could see. Then back to Sue's for a terrific tea with some splendid chocolate cake and the garden for the children to run around while Monty the cat sat and watched.
A wonderful time was had by all and here are just a few favorites from the day
One of the best things about photographing children is the limitless imagination. Toys can be made from anything at all. I think my favorite moment from this shoot was abandoning the playroom full of all sorts of exciting things and instead playing with lightshades off a bedside lamp - they made fantastic hats!
I spent a lovely evening with Anna last week. We roamed the parks and streets of London looking for the interesting light and chatting. I always enjoy headshot shoots as it is so much fun to identify the good spots when wandering around and they often seem such random places - doorways, under trees, bus shelters, anywhere with good directional light makes for a perfect headshot location. It is also great fun to meet people and chat about their lives and businesses and Anna was no exception with her own theatre company which takes plays all over England often to open air festivals - how cool is that?
Here are a few favorite pictures, I hope you like them.
