Together

I had the absolute pleasure of spending a morning with Anthony and Julie a couple of months ago. Thankfully it was before this lovely spell of wet weather we're having (!) and so, as well as a few portraits round the house, we got out and about too!

Such a warm and welcoming couple who obviously love being together and Anthony, in particular, delighted in showing that off!

And I loved the fact that there was no special occasion for the shoot - just that they wanted to capture and celebrate this moment in time. Just perfect.

A year ago ...

Was it really a year ago that I had the most amazing 4 days in the Lake District with Aspire??? Where has the time gone!

I did share the story of how I was fortunate enough to win a place on the course (and of course a few images!) in one of my first blog posts - however looking back through my year ago archives today, I couldn't help but decide to share a few more! 

First up is the beautiful Bex - who put up with our posing requests with a huge amount of patience! - then we had the lovely Nicola and her gorgeous family making the most of the snow we had - particularly William who seemed to end up in most of my shots! - and finally the fab Ailish and Troy - who were more than happy to get a little bit romantic the day before Valentine's!

As well as having the chance to photograph these lovely people, the course was jam-packed full of information - my head was completely buzzing when I left - I'd thoroughly recommend it to any photographers out there!

Shine!

I met Wendy from Shine Hypnotherapy nearly two months ago now and had such a fun morning with her as we captured some portrait images for her new website.

Like many people I meet, Wendy wasn't overly keen on having her picture taken but did know and appreciate a great profile image really is essential in today's business world.

However a beautiful day combined with good coffee and lovely conversation all helped the relaxation process* and I hope you'll agree we got some beautiful images over the course of our time together. I certainly thought she was a natural in front of the lens!

* Relaxation process also included my ever faithful assistant getting in on the act - see bottom picture!
