We decided to book this shoot in a few weeks before Fearne’s 1st birthday, which is almost a month ago now! It worked out perfectly and was exactly how we imagined it.
Set up didn’t take too long and once Fearne had grabbed the straw bunting on the top of the cake, she her first taste of buttercream. Next she just went for it, with handfuls of cake and buttercream being eaten so quickly! It was amazing, she was loving every second, though always looking over at Mum for approval.
Fearne was fabulous and made this one of the most enjoyable experiences for me so far. Something I had never done before, but thanks to her Mum Lucy, I was given the chance to give it a go. From the photos we achieved I think Fearne looked as though she had the best time too and didn’t seem to mind being in front of the camera.
It was messy, but oh so much fun!

October was a busy month for me, the beginning of my journey as a wedding and portrait photographer and portrait sessions booked in the diary. Here is a selection of the outdoor portrait photos I took; both were a lot of fun.
I met this amazing family one Sunday afternoon at Abington Park, in Northamptonshire. The leaves had turned all sorts of exciting colours and there were plenty of spots for us to take photos. It was incredibly busy, but we managed to avoid the people and their dogs walking by.
Lucy, Jeff and Fearne were naturals in front of the camera. This made it much easier to create some autumnal family portraits; exactly what we had hoped for.
I also met Lucy (different one!) and Josh just outside Corby, in Northamptonshire to take their portraits. We left an hour or so before the sun started to set so we could catch the light in just the right places. It was pretty chilly, but they embraced it!
I find it’s so important to interact with my clients and keep them relaxed to help create the natural shots we all want.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to capture these special moments, I can’t wait for next month!

I was honoured to be asked to photograph Paige and Luke on their wedding day 5 weeks ago, in South Wales. Paige and I have been friends since Junior School when she lived in Northamptonshire and we have kept in touch ever since. Paige and Luke were married at St Stephen’s Church in Cinderford and a reception was held at Paige’s church in Wyesham; the Wyesham Christian Fellowship.
It was a beautiful day in September. With the sun shining on the Elms Farm and Old Workshop in Mitchel Troy, Paige, her bridesmaids, Mum and Grandma prepared for her big day. She was so calm and relaxed. It was a joy to be a part of the morning preparations.
There were some nerves as War Song by Phamie Gow played whilst Paige walked down the isle, but as soon as Luke saw Paige this melted away. The warmth in both their eyes and their big smiles are one of the main reasons I loved photographing their wedding day!
It was a special day and ended spectacularly with a sparkler send off and clingfilm wrapped getaway car!!
