Natalie, Simon & Erin - Rayne Train Station Sneek Peek

Last Saturday Natalie, Simon and little Erin brought the sunshine with them to Rayne train station for their family shoot. I had such a hard time picking a favourite for their sneak peek, but just couldn't resist this big squeezy, kiss one!

Jade: Sneak Peek

It's been so long since I did a teen photo shoot so when Jade booked hers up I couldn't have been more excited. She also picked a brilliant location full of lots of great backdrops. I'll share some more soon but in the mean time here is her gorgeous sneak peek!

Julia, Ian & Mia : Thorndon Park Family Photo Shoot

I recently met up with Julia, Ian and Mia as they were taking pictures of Russell and I. I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to experience how it feels to be in front of the camera for once. I learnt a lot from it and am so excited to see the results and share them here.

Whilst there however, I took a few pictures for Julia. The light in Thorndon Park was just gorgeous and even though this was just a quick 10 minute shoot these are some of my favourite shots to date!

Behind The Scenes - Kitty & Dulcie Bridal Shoot

The day we did this photo shoot was so cold. We put the caravan in a position that just seemed to attract the wind and poor Chloe had to make it look warm prancing around in her wedding dresses! See it's glamour in this business, whilst we're in jumpers and scarfs she was just wrapped up in a blanket between shots to keep warm.

Below is a selection of behind the scenes pictures so you can see what we got up to and who was involved. To see the full edited shoot check out these two posts: Vintage Caravan Bridal Shoot and Hazy Days Caravan Hire Promotional Shoot

All of these photos are courtesy of the lovely Lauren Baker who came along to capture shots behind the scenes for me on the day!

Julia, Ian & Mia - Sneak Peek

The light at the weekend was just amazing. I'm a bit disappointed that I hadn't filled it with photo shoots now because it was just stunning. To prove my point I just wanted to share this gorgeous sneak peek of Julia, Ian and Mia shot in Thorndon Park, Brentwood.

October has become my most favourite month to photograph, now get in touch because I'm desperate to take more pictures just like these!!

Vintage Caravan Bridal Inspiration Photo Shoot.

I love nothing more than getting together with industry people and creating something so fun and fantastic that it benefits us all. In fact a day of complete creative freedom for all involved has to be good for the soul. Thats exactly what this photo shoot became.

Ever since I got started in photography I've loved arranging photo shoots. This one was one like I had never done before. I managed to get a lot of people on board to make it what it became and for that I am so thankful.

Our intial idea was a vintage shoot using a cute renovated vintage caravan. (you may remember the blog post about it) Kitty Carlight was supplied by Zoe of Hazy Days Caravan Hire. You can rent her out as well as a few more renovated caravans for weekends, parties and your wedding! They all come complete with vintage paraphernalia for you to use during your stay.

Next on board was our fantastic model Chloe Ruffell. She even did her own make-up on the day (multi-skilled!) Chloe was the lucky one who got to dress up in gorgeous knee length wedding dresses supplied by Kitty & Dulcie (they're also ridiculously affordable, if you're getting married you must click on this link to see!)

The dusty pink roses and wild daises were supplied to us by Claire from Lily and May Floral Design. Claire even made Chloe's daisy head piece for our second look.

Hair was once again made fabulous by the wonderful Cassandra Rizzuto and headpieces supplied by Flo & Percy. All in all this shoot far exceeded our expectations. And we all wished we could have brought Coffee the lamb home!


I also want to give a big shoutout to Lauren Baker who came along to take some shots of both the shoot and behind the scenes. Another post with the behind the scenes will be along soon.

Victoria & Andy Wedding Day Sneak Peek

Last Friday whilst we experienced that insane heatwave and the hottest day in October since records began, Victoria and Andy were celebrating their wedding. These two were the second couple to book me since I started my business, and it seemed so far away. I cannot believe how quickly the time has flown!

Victoria, Andy and their son Alfie are currently honeymooning in New York but I couldn't resist getting a sneak peek up!
