Me In Action!

I have had the opportunity to film myself for the first time performing a newborn photoshoot.

Clients often leave lovely reviews and are always commenting on how gentle, patient and confident I am when working with their little ones. I have been planning on creating a video for prospective clients for a long time to show the way I work but also so they know what to expect from a photo session.

I hope you enjoy watching...

My New Handmade Wooden Props! http://shutterhire.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/1/my-new-handmade-wooden-props  

Handmade Wooden Props!

I have been sent some gorgeous handmade wooden props, they're from a talented prop maker in Poland.

I purchased a log curved stool and a log bed (to replace my old ikea dolls bed)

YOU CAN FIND THIS PROP MAKER ON FACEBOOK BY CLICKING HERE.

I must say that the props are good quality and the price is affordable, orders are custom made. I found shipping surprisingly quick considering the seller has to make the items and I am an overseas customer.

I would 100% recommend this prop maker, the items are rustic but with no sharp edges.

Here are some examples of his props in use by me...

Newborn Elliott's Photoshoot!

Capture Date: 29th December 2015

My friend Natasha from Northampton travelled down to see me so that I could take newborn photographs of their new arrival Elliott. Big sister Rose also got involved!

I have taken photographs of Rose at newborn, 6months and one years old so it was a joy to have her brother in the studio and to get her to join in too.

I got the hot air balloon prop out again, which I haven't used for a while! I also took the opportunity to film the session to show prospective clients how I work in the hope they will feel at ease with my conduct before they book in.

Capture Date: 23rd December 2015

Cai's photographs were absolutely gorgeous, I was especially pleased with the curved stool image as it's the first time I had used the prop.

He wasn't asleep for the whole session so we managed to get some 'eyes open' images too.

Atticus's Cake Smash! http://shutterhire.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/12/atticuss-cake-smash Atticus's Cake Smash!

Capture date: 22nd December 2015

I love love love messy cake smash photo sessions!!!

Cake smashes are the perfect first birthday celebration and I have a choice of different background designs/colours as well as different bunting to choose from.

Most children haven't tasted cake before this age so it's a fantastic opportunity to document those first sweet tooth moments!

See how Atticus got on...

Christmas Studio Sessions! http://shutterhire.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/12/christmas-studio-sessions  

Merry Christmas!

It's been a busy time in the studio this year, but even more so in December! I haven't had too many Christmas themed sessions this time round but lots of family portraits. There has also been a baby boom so I've had newborns in almost every time, every evening has been spent editing away when my little man is in bed, trying to keep on top of work so that everyone gets their images in time for the festive season.

Check out some of my studio sessions below...

Christmas Photoshoots!

Throughout December I attended Zone Play Centre on Penarth Road with my chimney and sleigh props. Lots of families got involved with my shoot and print on the day sessions and the kids had a great time! Taking full advantage of my giant chimney which fits up to 3 children and toddler sleigh.

Below are examples of some of the photographs I took...

Isaac's Cake Smash!

Capture date: 11th December 2015

With my cake smash packages I always give parents the chance to capture up to date photographs of their child before the messy bit starts.

Cake smashes are the perfect first birthday celebration and I have a choice of different background designs/colours as well as different bunting to choose from.

Most children haven't tasted cake before this age so it's a fantastic opportunity to document those first sweet tooth moments!

Tip Toes Nursery Photography! http://shutterhire.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/11/tip-toes-nursery-photography  

Nursery Photography!

The owner of Tip Toes Nursery in St.Mellons asked me to do some nursery photography, it's not a service I usually provide so I was excited about this new opportunity.

I attended the nursery armed with Christmas themed props as well as my usual child photography props. The children were between 2-6 years old and they were a joy to work with. Not all of them wanted to partake but it was optional and there were some fantastic results from those who did.

Rather than providing proofs I decided to issue an online client gallery on my website so parents could see their children's images in digital form and decide if they wanted to purchase them in their own time. The gallery will be available until the end of January and I will hopefully be attending the nursery again in February for round two!

Thank you to all the parents who have purchased their photographs, to the owners for allowing me to attend and the very friendly staff who were extremely helpful on the day!

Zone Play Centre Photography! http://shutterhire.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/8/zone-play-centre-photography Zone Play Centre, Penarth Road!

      The owners of Zone on Penarth Road have accepted me as their play centre photographer, I'm thrilled to be part of an amazing team of awesome staff members. I also pleased to have this opportunity as it will allow me to meet more families in Cardiff and hopefully build relationships with families who wouldn't usually know about my business.

      I will be offering a shoot and print service at just £6 per mounted 6x4" print (discount for multiple orders). I will be supplying a white backdrop with lighting set up and I will bring props to each session.

      Unfortunately the images won't be a reflection on the quality of my studio work as there is orange hue lighting at the centre and my studio is blackout. I will have the opportunity to make quick adjustments to images such as blemish removal but the images won't be as professionally edited as my studio photographs, therefore the result will differ greatly.

      My play centre photography will be an opportunity for families to capture a quick up to date snap of their loved ones who don't necessarily require a professional studio session.

Zena and Llewellyn 24th May 2015

 

Zena and Llewellyn's Pembrokeshire wedding was a beautiful setting for a wonderful wedding day.

Despite the rain the couple were willing to head out with an umbrella and capture some wonderful shots by the venue's lake.

From bridal preparations until first dance this wedding was fun, spontaneous and I love every minute of it.
