Quick sneak peek from today’s {baby} session

Just a couple of quick teasers as I am getting my gear ready for tomorrow’s wedding. This is possibly my favourite photo from the day – my little nine week old client, expressing his feelings at having his picture taken …

Yawning his little head off!

OK, so my jokes weren’t very good … what I like best is that mum and dad are blissfully unaware that their baby son is yawning his head off …

Alex seems quite content over his dad’s shoulder …

Alex and Dan

… and flying through the air with his mum …

Alex and Ange

Lovely to see you all today and hope that Alex survived all the attention! xx

The many faces of {Trinity Rose}

Babies are just such fun to photograph and I had a super time yesterday with the gorgeous Trinity Rose … she certainly lives up to her beautiful name … here she is, modelling a pretty outfit which was sent all the way from the States

Trinny

Trinny brought along her mum, Amanda, and her minder, Alfred …

Trinny is nine and a half weeks old and is already taking an active interest in the world … and gave me the most super smile …

Trinny

It was great to spend time with these two lovely supermodels … and Trinny’s mummy has even used one of the pics as her profile on Facebook which I am so happy about!

See you soon, ladies! xxx

A nice way to spend a weekend in {Whitstable}

Vince and I had a weekend to ourselves, which is unusual – no football, no children, no weddings … so we went to the Whitstable Oyster Festival and I just wanted to share a couple of images from the day (because, of course, I took photos …)

The weather was fabulous and it was just so busy – throngs of people enjoying the sunshine, the beer, the oysters, the entertainment …

Whitstable Oyster Festival oysters and fish

This very cheerful oyster shucker said he would pose for 50 pence … so we bought some oysters to eat as well!

And, of course, we had to have something to help the oysters go down … although this picture is of Harvey’s Best, from a Sussex brewery … and yes, mine was the half pint!!!

Whitstable Oyster Festival colours

We are certainly going to put this great event in our family diary for next year … and we even got the train so had no problems parking either!

{Wedding Traditions} – something blue …

As I am starting to process the images from Linda and Bill’s wedding, I came across this one …

Of course, I had to look up the history of this tradition (the complete phrase being “‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in your shoe”), and came upon this explanation (from WeddingGuideUK.com), which says:

“Wearing something blue dates back to biblical times when the colour blue was considered to represent purity and fidelity. Over time this has evolved from wearing a blue clothing to wearing a blue band around the bottom of the bride’s dress and to modern times where the bride wears a blue or blue-trimmed garter.”

Linda had a handkerchief, trimmed with blue lace, as her something blue … I wonder what my next bride will have? And will they have a sixpence in their left shoe, which supposedly brings wealth …?

Jane and Martin {Wedding} at Reads, Faversham

Just a quick post as Jane, Martin and their guests are eating their wedding breakfast at Reads before I speed off to Seasalter to capture the evening celebrations …

Jane and Martin

Jane looked fabulous and appeared amazingly relaxed accompanied by her three bridesmaids …

And the boys looked rather dapper too (although in the second picture, they were discussing where Martin should put his hands …)

Martin montage

And little Ricardo – well, he’s an absolute delight …

More will follow but I must dash!

Linda and Bill {Wedding} at Mount Ephraim

The sun shone on my fabulous bride and groom today! I am just going to post a couple of quick teasers from today’s wedding … but suffice to say that I imagine that the party is still going strong if the stories of last night’s shenanigans are anything to go by (finishing the party at 2.30am on the morning of your wedding day …)

I have to say that, as a photographer, you can plan and prepare as much as possible, but the real photo opportunities are made by the couple and their friends and families. Such as this one …

In the gardens ...

And don’t you just know it, the queue was shorter for the gents …

There were two brothers to give away the bride, two bestmen to assist the groom, one gorgeous bridesmaid, Olivia and a wonderful group of people who celebrated Linda and Bill’s special day with them.

And here are the new Mr and Mrs Grabham. Congratulations to you both!

Linda and Bill

Thank you all again for being such fun and just remember the sexy poses … more photos to follow soon!

Meeting a new {baby}

I was so pleased today to meet Alexander James who is six weeks and one day old. He was 16 days overdue when he finally arrived on this earth …

I’m not sure that he was too impressed with being put on a bean bag – his mum thinks that he looks like “an old man in an armchair” …

Alexander James

And I am not sure what he was thinking with this strange lady, talking gibberish to him and then sticking a camera in his face … we got a little smile in the end!

Alexander James

Alex is a super little boy, who is unfortunately suffering from colic, but you really wouldn’t have known it as he is just delightful!

Alexander James

Big hugs and I hope to see you all again very soon!
