Hi!

This month I had beautiful baby Tilly in the studio for a newborn baby photoshoot. Tillie’s Mum won a photoshoot with me when she came to a baby fair last year.

 

This type of photoshoot can last for up to 4 hours, depending on how well baby gets to sleep for those lovely sleeping poses. The room is kept at a constant warm (to fully clothed adults hot) room so baby does not get cold.  There is usually plenty of baby wee, poo and sick, but that’s fine! As a Mum and someone who photographs newborns we are used to it. Plenty of washing is expected from each shoot too, so never worry when you come for this style of photoshoot.

 

In this case we spent a whole 4 hours with Tilly, who was most happy when wrapped up snugly.

 

Here are a few photos from the session so you can see just what a little stunner Tilly is.

Newborn photoshoots cost £90, this includes up to 4 hours studio time, one 8×12 print and the use of my props.  If you would like any more information, or to enquire about a newborn photoshoot please fill in my contact form .

Hi!

At the end of last year I was booked to photograph a wedding at the gorgeous Bailiffscourt hotel and spa. The bride’s Mum booked me to cover their gorgeous Christmas wedding because the bride and groom now live in Australia!! They made their trip over to the UK to see family and celebrate their wedding. The wonderful Christmas theme wedding cake was made by Cake Magic.

The day was just perfect in every way, we even managed to avoid any rain.

Here are a few photos from their day.

Baby J’s Christening photoshoot.

 

In November I was very pleased to hear from a past customer whose first baby’s Christening I shot a while back.  They have had another baby and wanted me to cover his Christening.

 

The service was at the same gorgeous little Church where their daughter was also Christened.

 

It really was fabulous to catch up, see how much their first baby has grown, and meet the latest addition.

Autumn is my favourite time of year. It is all about cuddling up in your warmer clothes when it starts getting colder, and the gorgeous, stunning colours which you will only find at this time of year.  I don’t think there is a more colourful time of year than autumn, with a myriad of different colour leaves on the trees and also on the floor.

Every year at around October half term I take the kids to a local park, and take our annual Christmas card photos, along with some which are either Autumn or Halloween theme (think pumpkins and all the shades of leaves imaginable).

Thankfully this half term we had some gorgeous dry weather, not too cold and the colours, ah the lovely colours. It was perfectly timed with some leaves on the trees and others which had already dropped.

Now, I hear you say “What!? Take your own photos?”  Yes, as a photographer, I do take photos of my own family, however it is not plain sailing! So I keep the shooting times short, and give rewards for letting me get at least a few photos.  It also helps to make some of the photos fun ones.  This year I achieved this by letting them have a ride on the train which runs round the park after I had finished with taking photos, and they had super fun throwing leaves around!

Sometimes I sit and edit my photos, or work out new ways of editing so that I am being more creative in the way my images are produced.  I will, now and again, think about what customers think happens with their images after the shutter clicks.  Some images call for half an hour or more of post processing, to make them the sort of image that you will see on our facebook pages or on our blog posts.  Below you will find a small selection of images from a shoot, with each image having an original (straight from camera),  one which has had a small amount of editing in one of my favourite editing packages (Adobe Lightroom), the last is the fully edited ready for the wall image.  These were all edited by hand, there was no use of presets or actions.

Hopefully you will agree that the finished image is so much better than the original which is straight from the camera.  Next time you look at photos on facebook pages, have a closer look and see if you can work out how the photo has been edited to look better than the original!

 

If you would like a photoshoot please do get in touch via my contact page Or for more information check out the pricing and photoshoots pages on the website.  One hour family photoshoots currently cost £65 for an hour with one 8×12 print of your choice from the session (price correct for 2015).

We are based in Bognor Regis, West Sussex, close to Chichester.  Outdoors photoshoots can be done in the local area.  Other areas can be covered, although there may be a charge for mileage if you require me to travel more than 20 miles to your shoot.

Last week I did a fitness photoshoot for Michael, a personal trainer.

 

Fitness photography is all about the lighting, using the light to model the physique in the best possible way, getting as much tonal range as possible, from shadow all the way through to high lights.

 

Here are a few of the photos from Michael’s photoshoot.

At the end of August I attended Debbie and Lukes wedding at the lovely location of Bracklesham barn in West Sussex, a few miles south of Chichester.  They had the most gorgeous day for their wedding.

Debbie and Luke involved the whole family in their service, the children from the families even did a reading which kept everyone entertained. This was the second wedding of the summer which served fish and chips for their meal, followed by an ice cream van serving their dessert.  They chose a beach theme for the wedding, and made their own table centre pieces. They also put up their own photobooth for the evening guests to take photos in with an ipad.

Although the ceremony ran a little late (due to some very bad traffic on the morning) we managed to nip away to the beach for some photos just of the couple between the ceremony and reception.

 

Here are a few photos from their day, which was full of love and happiness.

Georgina and James’ wedding celebration, Boxgrove.

 

In August I attended the wedding celebration of the lovely Georgina and James. They chose to have their wedding celebration at Boxgrove Village hall. This is a lovely light and airy village hall, which was perfect for the celebration they had planned. It is also very handy for bride and groom shots as Boxgrove Priory is just across the road, the ruins are just lovely for some personal quiet time photos between the service and reception.

Georgina and James had planned every detail about the day, including all the things that they like. The reception tables were completed with bottles of Coca Cola and Tunnocks Teacakes! There was a sweetie table so the guests could help themselves, and they even provided sun cream/sun glasses/fans and flip flops, always thinking of their guests comfort.  The meal was provided by a fish and chip van, who also provided the pudding of doughnuts and ice cream.

 

I hope you enjoy looking at some of their photos.

Charlotte and Paul’s wedding celebration at Southend barns.

 

At the beginning of August I attended the wedding celebration of Charlotte and Paul. I first met this lovely couple and their family last year when I covered their registry office ceremony in Chichester. This year they decided to have a big party so all their friends and family could celebrate with them.  They chose the stunning Southend Barns as their venue, it is a gorgeous place and was perfect for their informal celebration. The weather was very kind to them (always a relief!) and to top off the day they had a visit from a Delorean car!

 

I hope you enjoy looking at some of the photos from their day.
