It's been almost a week since John & Nora's beautiful Sussex wedding.... a quintessential English-American affair with friends and family flying in from all around the world to celebrate in the stunning grounds of Firle Place - a beautiful country estate in the South Downs National Park in Sussex. I must say, this is the first time I've worked at Firle Place bit it is now firmly one of my favourite wedding venues!Read More
Ohhhh I LOVE LOVE LOVE the beach! !
There's just something so liberating about being by the sea! The sun on your back, the wind in your hair... I've always loved it ever since I was a child and I jump at the opportunity to go there whenever I can! It's our dream to live by the sea and one day we hope we will retire there. A few months ago I went on a North West Wedding Photographers' night out in Manchester and among other great photographers I met the lovely Chris from Chris Morse Wedding Photography. He's a documentary photographer just like me and his work is amazing! Have a look! Chris has passed a few wedding referrals on to me lately, so as a thank you I decided to do a family doco shoot for him, to kind of well, re-pay the favour the best way I can!
We spent a beautiful morning at Prestatyn Beach in North Wales. It was a bit windy but it was such great fun! Little Ellie was just the epitome of adorable all morning and they all completely rocked the socks off their session!
I just love this kind of photography. It makes my heart dance a little dance. I'm so driven to document the little bits of everyday life that feel so small at the time but one day, when the littles are all grown up, you can look back on and feel like you are back there!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of doing an in home family photography session with this lovely family. I love documentary sessions at home because you are your most relaxed when you're in familiar surroundings. Yesterday was no exception and we had such a lovely time just hanging out doing normal everyday stuff. The sun was even kind to us and we got to venture out into the garden for a bit too :)
Do you know anyone who would like a family documentary session? Completely fly-on-the-wall and I tell your story through observation, freezing an otherwise ordinary day in pictures for you to treasure!
These sessions make great gifts too and I do gift vouchers so contact me if you'd like to find out more - I'd love to hear from you.
In the meantime, rest your eyes on these....
