Well I suppose its about time I got back to blogging. I used to love writing blogs and was always thrilled to post them so I could get some feedback. But I drifted away from blogging and have found it difficult to return.
Since I've been rather busy lately I thought I'd take the opportunity to share over these next few weeks all that I've been up to. I've had some great sessions with babies, families and even adults. And even did some product work, cremation jewelry believe it or not. And now, today, the school portraits season has begun. So I will be very busy over these next few months but that should provide me with loads to share.
I thought I'd kick off the blogging with some work for a returning client with their latest addition to the family, Frankie. They did as advised and came over for a session when Frankie was about 2 weeks old. Ideally between 10-14 days is great. In fact they came again a week later for some additional family portraits and already we all noticed the difference. Where in the first session he slept through everything, the second session we couldn't get him to sleep through any of it. Many of the images from the first session would have been impossible at just over 3 weeks.
It was at this session that I was able to use a new prop that I acquired while out for coffee at Whitemoors Antiques in Shenton. What a great find, which amazingly I walked right past. If it wasn't for my wedding photographer friend spotting the baby weighing scales I would have missed out. I still can't believe he spotted them and I didn't.
This was yet another session I thoroughly enjoyed with clients that once again made me feel like the time I spend with them isn't actually work, which is another reason I love what I do.
I hope you enjoyed the portraits. If you did I've love to hear. And if you know anyone about to have a baby please share. Newborns are definitely my favourite subject, even if they do make me want another baby.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
