As 2020 kicks off, I've started the year with family shoots and cake smashes. I absolutely love shooting anything that creates a gallery of images that people love, that they are passionate about and will print to frame on their wall, this can be different for every family. What they're looking for from their shoot varies so much. Whether it's the cosy cuddly images on the sofa, a family meal with ALL the grand bairns, a posed for shoot, or an outdoors session in the trees, at a beach or in their own garden. What is important to me and my memory recording mission is that regardless of what you're looking for, I give you a set of photos you are happy with, and you love the experience and create memories as we shoot. I'm laid back and let you interact with the setting and situation in a way that suits you, this means there's no fake or forced smiles, and some of my most favourite images are the screaming new born babies.
Last year I began a collaboration with The Island Larder, who are good friends of mine. They at the time were able to provide a space for cake smashes and cakes for babies to smash, it meant we could provide a space for parents to enjoy the shoot whilst drinking coffee with no worry about mess. They are currently in the process of moving to a new premises that will open in the summer, I can't wait, their enthusiasm and passion for their business is inspiring and it'll be brilliant to see what they do with their new space. While they're in the process of moving I can offer an at home cake smash service where The island Larder provide the cake, and I bring the decorations to you. Complete with balloons and a back drop that ensures mess is as contained as possible. Mia's shoot featured below was shot in this way.
My first wedding next week commences my 2020 wedding year, and i'm super excited to be back at Busta House hotel. I absolutely love the setting at Busta House, but more as anything the staff and management are incredible. There's never a problem for the wedding party or guests or me as a photographer that Grant, Joel and his team can't deal with. They make the wedding day flow really easily and make it a pleasure.
