Bright and breezy with a little bit of cheese – Nick and Decia at Whitstable

I’m delighted to be joining Nick and Decia for their spring wedding at gorgeous Winters Barns near Canterbury and we decided to meet up for a fast and furious pre-wedding photoshoot at Whitstable. The weather on Saturday was damp and dismal … but Sunday was bright … and incredibly windy!

Some of my brides need a tiny bit of encouragement to let go … Decia is NOT such a bride – her laughter and giggling is infectious and we are going to have no trouble at all getting beautiful and engaging images on their wedding day!

As we strolled through a busy Whitstable Harbour, we found an astronaut …

Nick and Decia’s connection and love for each other was very obvious to see … we stopped traffic, drank coffee and traded stories.

I am so looking forward to their wedding day … oh, and the cheese reference is twofold – cheesy shots may be required on the day to get into the spirit of things … and Decia LOVES cheese! See you both very soon xx

My first maternity session … with Sarah

I had my first maternity session on Friday with Sarah, who is due in December.  We started off inside … Sarah is just such a smiley person, and kept breaking into the hugest grins …

I think the image below just captures how she feels about her baby …

But then the sun came out, and we decided to go out into the cold to get some of that beautiful autumnal light …

I’m so glad we did, because the light was just awesome, creating dappled light from the trees overhead … in the middle of London!

 And because it was Hallowe’en, we thought we would have a play around with some lighting effects and created a bit of a spooky atmosphere …

Thanks so much Sarah for making this session so easy and such fun!
