Arlo’s new born shoot

A couple of weeks ago I spent the afternoon with Abbie, Aurin and their adorable baby boy Arlo in their home in Brixham. Here are a few of my favourites from the shoot, including their gorgeous Spaniel Jenson who totally loved having his photo taken! x

Goodbye 2015….Hello 2016!

posted in: bride, New born, Personal, portraits, wedding | 0

I remember sitting down this time last year and thinking ahead to 2015. We had just moved to Devon and the year ahead seemed unclear. I’m the sort of person who likes to have a plan, or a rough plan at least! We didn’t have a house to call our own, ours jobs were uncertain and we had just said goodbye to our friends in Swindon and moved back to the sea. Twelve months later our lives have completely changed. We have bought our very first family home, it’s by no means perfect in fact it needs a heck of a lot doing to it but it’s peaceful, has a lovely secluded garden and it’s ours! Both of us are doing jobs that we love and are full of exciting opportunities ahead and we have made some amazing friends. More importantly, we have been absolutely blessed by the support of our families.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some amazing families and couples this year. From relaxing new born shoots at home, family shoots in the sand dunes and awesome weddings which capture the relaxed and laid back Devon lifestyle. I have LOVED every minute.

I am so excited to see what 2016 brings. I have got some amazing weddings booked and I am almost fully booked for this summer.

 Happy New Year xxx

Jess and Harry

Jess contacted me a few months ago asking if I could take some photos of her and her gorgeous son Harry as a Father’s Day surprise for her husband. Obviously I was more than happy to oblige and even more happy when Jess told me “he loved them”

Here are a few of my favourites xx

Last year I photographed Lucy and Tony’s wedding so it was an absolute pleasure to be asked to photograph their gorgeous baby girl Molly Ivy.

This gorgeous girl was so alert during our shoot and could even lift her head at 3 weeks old! What a beautiful, chilled out little girl- congratulations Lucy and Tony xx

Baby Leo (not a skateboard in sight!)

posted in: film, Lifestyle, little ones, Maternity, New born | 0

 A few months ago I was invited to photograph baby Leo at his home. It was a gorgeous sunny day as I drove along the coastal road to Anna and Bob’s home; a light filled house with seaside coloured décor and views overlooking the River Teign estuary.

Perfect.

And it really was.

I frequently look on Pinterest and other sites for ideas for my photography as I sometimes feel that I’m not being creative enough. There is so much competition in this industry and I started to doubt myself.

This photographer is doing this, that photographer is doing that…..

Am I being creative enough? Should I buy some props to take on shoots?

The other day I found a photo online of a new born baby on a skateboard.

Yes you read that right. A SKATEBOARD! And another was on a motorbike (apparently the dad was supporting the bike)

It just baffles me how people feel the need to introduce all sorts of bizarre props when right there in front of you is the most BEAUTIFUL baby, their legs curled up, their tiny little fingers and toes. Their perfectly soft hair. And complete overwhelming LOVE that is right before your eyes. And I decided that is enough for me.

And it was more than enough that day. It was amazing; the light flooded into the house, perfect for shooting with film. We didn’t need any baskets, watering cans, skateboards or motorbikes(!) to make this shoot an absolute pleasure to be part of. Thank you so much Anna, Bob, big sister Sophie and baby Leo for reaffirming my belief that all you need is LOVE xxxx
