Pinterest – my favourite social media icon

Take a look at my Pinterest Boards… Pinterest has to be my favourite social media tool although it is one of those places where time goes – I have to be strict and set myself a time limit! If you Google most things these days and more than likely Pinterest will show up on page one of your search for items that are relevant to you. If you are a user then do come along and follow me too. If you are new to Pinterest and don’t have an account then go and take a look. It is a treasure trove of inspiration and ideas for anything from...

Appreciate the Seasons: Springtime

Posted by on 12:41 pm in 2 Family and Children Shoots, 4 News, Events & Offers | Comments Off

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade”. Charles Dickens, Great Expectations I came across this quote the other morning and it perfectly summed up the day. I have since compiled a list (thank you Mr Google) of wonderful ways to celebrate the new season and I’m sure I will be combining some of these into forthcoming family photo shoots as well. What a lovely list of things to do in the Springtime. Can you add something to this...

Spring is on its way and so are new family photo shoot dates…

Spring is on the way! And so are my latest Magical Mini Family Photo Shoot Session Dates – read on to find out more… Spring is such an exciting time in the great outdoors. The weather is starting to improve, we feel lighter in our step and the anticipation of the summer months leaves us with a sense of adventure and a desire to step outside once again.

Are you planning a Big Family Gathering in 2015?

Posted by on 12:18 pm in 6 Get In Touch | 0 comments

If so, have you considered using the services of a professional family photographer to help relive the day later and to capture those rare moments of togetherness in an overly busy lifestyle? I spend a lot of time with extended families – whether it be a special tea party for Grannie’s 70th, a portrait commission or a walk in the park. You may enjoy taking photographs yourself but are YOU ever in those photos? Do the children cooperate with you when you want to get it just right? Good photos are a necessity and especially so when...

A Goodwin Family Photo session at Frensham Pond, Farnham, Surrey.

Posted by on 12:40 pm in 1 About Me, 2 Family and Children Shoots | Comments Off

A crisp, cold but bright Sunday morning in Winter; wonderful conditions for some gorgeous photography of my own children at Frensham Big Pond, Farnham. The Big Pond is surprisingly quiet at this time of year. Come the summer months, the car park is full from early morning as day trippers make their way down here with the buckets and spades and swimming costumes for the children to play on ‘the beach’! This always makes me giggle when the real beach and sea is only 50 minutes away from us. Nevertheless, it is a nice spot but winter is my...

A favourite image of 2014: 1st Birthday Celebration photoshoot with all the family, West Sussex

Posted by on 5:51 pm in 2 Family and Children Shoots | 0 comments

I love this image from a family birthday celebration back in Spring this year, it is one of my favourite images from 2014. For me, this photograph captures the essence of a shoot with me and what family photos should be all about; family interacting and having fun, capturing a moment in time.  I have written on previous blog posts about the importance of grandparents and their role in the extended family. This little girl, having a favourite story read to her by her grandfather whilst sitting on granny’s knee will be treasured for ever...
