Wow what a year! It has been full on with lots of family shoots this year and weddings in the summer too being juggled with a full time job and kids. I realised this year that a full time job does not work (I did 5 months) and I refused to give up my beloved photography business that I had set up 5 years ago. This year I have had the privilege to capture some awesome weddings in the summer with no rain (next blog post), kids jumping off benches (see Lewis and Aiden's amazing jumps on my home page and above, they look like they are flying), tiny newborns including 6 day old twins born early only 5 days after I captured their beautiful mummy, lots of family shoots and capturing my own family in-between. One of the weirdest shoots I experienced was my own back in April when I was in front of the camera for some shots to add to the website. All I wanted to do was jump behind the camera!
Kate's fashion shoot for her last University project was a highlight for me too and we had great fun changing her younger sister into clothing she had designed as an Autumn collection for kids. It did prove a little challenging shooting in the woods during bluebell season though but the woods were brilliant for the fairy background feel and there were still lots of leaves on the floor!
Phoebe's first birthday just made my head spin as her mummy's imagination and dedication to making the hot balloon with daddy's help too was just out of this world!
Best thing has been able to catch up with friends and families I haven't seen for ages and seeing families grow where clients have returned and the kids are so different.
See if you can see yourself in my 2016 collection. Have a Wonderful 2017 and a Happy New Year. Photo shoots first up then weddings as I could not fit them all in to one blog post! Can't wait to meet some new clients, new families, new little ones to capture and treasure.
What will YOU DO on your 2017 photo shoot????
Enjoy and see you soon x
