Summer Family photo sessions in the Lavender fields

Have you seen some of my Lavender fields family photo sessions in Hampshire this summer?  This year, I ran a couple of short sessions in the lavender fields near Selborne, Hampshire.  It was a great success and I’m looking forward to booking some more for the same time next year!  The lavender fields’ shop is open all year round, and they have a couple of weekends in July when they open the fields to the public.  This year they had cream teas and tractor rides!  My family sessions are booked outside those times in order to ensure that the fields aren’t teeming with people (just bees!) Here are some photos from the first session which ran in the first weekend of July.

It’s been more than 2 months since I’ve updated the blog. This summer has been busy with lots of children and family portrait photography, as well as lots of weddings both as a second shooter and the primary shooter! I’m going to do my best to catch up, starting off with this beautiful Hampton Court House wedding!   Jo and Dan had a wonderful day of celebrations at Hampton Court House in Surrey. I second shot this wedding for Gemma at Cotton Candy Weddings, meeting Dan and the boys for a little ferry boat trip across the Thames, before having pre-wedding drinks at The Mute Swan, then on to Hampton Court House. It was a beautiful, relaxed sunny day. Thank you so much for having me along Jo, Dan, and Gemma!

with Fleur De Lis and gowns from Brides of Winchester

I still have lots of real weddings lines up to show you all from last year, but I thought I’d sneak this one in quickly as it shows the new home of Winchester Registry Office – The Basing Room.  Doesn’t it just look amazing?  I wouldn’t mind having a registry office wedding here at all!  These photos were taken at the meet up I attend with other Hampshire wedding photographers where we practice new skills, try out various equipment and generally learn and have a laugh.  As usual I shot on both film and digital and we practised with various lighting situations – using off camera flash, natural light, and continuous lighting.  Esme was our very patient model for the day, Brides of Winchester supplied us with the amazing Suzanne Neville Grovesnor gown, and a SoSassi gown by Sassi Halford.  Fleur De Lis came along as well and supplied a stunning floral arrangement and beautiful bouquet.  Thanks to Stephen Duncan for arranging us to have access to the Basing Room and The Great Hall of Winchester!

If you’re having your wedding at The Basing Room Winchester, or indeed having your reception at The Great Hall, do give me a shout if you are still looking for a photographer!  I still have some spaces left for 2015, but am now booking for 2016 and 2017.

Maternity Photography at Southdowns Manor

 

It’s funny how things turn out.  I haven’t shot a baby bump in an age, then this month I will be having a run of maternity shoots in Hampshire. The other week, I shot a beautiful bride who is expecting her first child (she was radiant and blooming!), next week I’ll be photographing another baby bump and baby shower, and I also had the pleasure of photographing Jana and Charlie not so long ago at Southdowns Manor.  They were very kind enough to model for a group of local photographers, and I decided to shoot them on film as we approached the golden hour.  The following photos were taken on a canon eos 3 camera and with kodak portra 400.   Film scanned and developed by UK Film Lab.  This post is also part of my Film blog circle group so if you’d like to see more film photos from around the world, do please take a look at Erica’s blog post here and then follow the links around until you get back here!  Happy viewing.

“Someone told me there’s a girl out there,

with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.”

I’m very excited to show you the results of a seventies wedding beach inspiration shoot which was put together in the shortest of time but still came together in the most serendipitous way.   Betty the VW Bug is actually from the seventies!  And of course the dresses are seventies inspired.  Thanks to Karen from Vinnies Vintage Vehicles, Lisa at Lisa Sheridan Frocks, and Kenzie and Vicky for modelling on that bright but cold march day at Eastney Beach in Portsmouth.   Doesn’t it just remind you of relaxed California beach weddings?!  And yes, I may have been playing a bit of Led Zeppelin to get into the groove whilst editing.  Bring on the summer with beach weddings, relaxed bohemian weddings, blue skies and ice cream shades!
