Summer is my favourite time of the year, I'm not one for wind and rain, yes snow looks pretty but once you've done numerous of school runs in it, and you come in all wet and soggy, freezing, naa, it's not for me, give me sunshine any day of the year. Speaking of the weather? How lovely has the weather been in Hull recently? I never catch the sun, but this year I look sun kissed. I took the opportunity of this lovely weather to offer some lovely little beach minis, which was done on Hornsea Seafront, so not a long drive from Hull. The beach minis took around 30-60 minutes, and I just spent time with families / couples, walking along the sea front, chatting, playing, giggling. It was lovely. The whole vibe was really relaxed which helped capturing some gorgeous images.
I won't go on anymore, but I do offer location photography sessions in and around Hull, if anyone would like a natural, relaxed, family or couple portrait shoot, get in touch...
Last weekend we had a little road trip to Leominster to take part in a newborn workshop with Veronica at Sleep Munchkins Photography. We set off nice and early from Hull at 4:15am, coffee in hand, and headed down the motorway.
We arrived an hour early, and stopped for breakfast! We found a lovely little café which reminded us of a little place we had visited in Cornwall, we refuelled on a lovely warm breakfast, which we washed down with some fresh orange juice and headed off to the workshop.
Camera and note pads in hand, we was ready to learn and advance our already skills on posing baby, tips of getting baby to sleep, wrapping techniques and much, much more.
Before the newborn model arrived, we made lots of notes on how to improve our skills, and learnt a few new things too, as well as taking lots of photos on our phone as the day went on... (hides!)
We booked Veronica's newborn workshop, because we liked her simple style. Our style is simple, so attending this workshop for us was great, as we was learning to improve our style.
The little baby model was amazing, and slept a dream during the session, which was great as we learnt how to flow the newborn session with less disruptions as possible. We also love this pink, don't you?
and we also love this blue? Don't you agree?
We had a great time at the workshop, and now our studio is up and running in Hull, we are investing in some new backdrops / wraps and props for our newborn sessions.
Our newborn sessions are £70 with a 10x8inch complimentary print, and you buy then buy as little or as much as you like after the session, without pressure to purchase.
We would also like to thank Veronica for a wonderful newborn photography workshop, and we would defiantly recommend her to other photographers too.
I love it when a client comes to me and asks for portraits on location, it's always good to get away from the studio and work with something different. We love being outdoors, so outdoor and working is a win, win.
We first met this lovely family approximately 4 years ago, when again, we did some family portraits on location. At the time, it was a family of four, and now there's a family of five. Obviously the girls was a lot younger back then, so looking back on the families location photo-shoot at the weekend, it was lovely to see how much the girls had changed, and also to see how big my work was printed.
So this weekend we updated this families portraits with their new little addition and we love the results from their photography session.
