BABY AND CHILD PHOTOGRAPHY YORK | ISABELLA IN THE SUNSHINE

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

One sunny day in March my little sweetpea was playing in the garden.  Natural light backlit portraits are my absolute favorite.

 

Technical note: I’ve just invested in the VSCO film look actions for Lightroom. I love them.  These have all been processed with Fuji 400H-, I’ve made a custom preset with a little extra over-exposure and 0 added contrast.  I’m seriously starting to wonder about getting going with film again, not for everything but as an addition to my Canon 5DII.  The glowing skin and tonal range is amazing.  Please God drop a Contax 645 in my lap.

BABY/FAMILY LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY YORKSHIRE | BATH TIME

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Having my own baby has made me realise that I don’t just want gorgeous styled images of her, I want photographs of everyday things. Lunch. Baths. Naps (occasionally). Playtime. Real memories of my baby girl who is growing up all too fast.

Enough yukky stuff. Here’s bathtime.

BABY AND CHILD/EVENT PHOTOGRAPHER YORKSHIRE | ISABELLA’S FIRST BIRTHDAY

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

I had planned the party for quite a while – I’d been scouring Pinterest just a teeny bit too much, as usual. I seem to have a knack for over exaggerating my talents and thinking I can do it all, in a short amount of time. My sisters and I turned into baking obsessed maniacs the week before, or at least I did, and they put up with it. Isabella got to lick the spoon and wear her new apron.

I wanted spring colours, with bunnies, chicks and ducklings, combined with the more grown up idea of afternoon tea. Let’s face it, this was really a party for me. She didn’t know it was all for her. I’m hoping she’ll look back on the photos and know how special she is to me, my little Isabelladorable.

My little sweetpea is one!

Fondant fancies made more babyish:

 

Bunny biscuits!

Easter chick wreath, a Pinterest special.  It was pretty easy to make.  Just take a polystyrene wreath, double sided tape and a million (ok 130) chicks and stick together.

I found this donkey and cart on Party Pieces and had to have it

Macaroons.  Batch one were a disaster,  batch two, thanks to my sister Rosie (annoyingly she takes the credit) looked GOOD! This recipe from BraveTart (ace name) was the one that worked.

Biiiig yellow balloons

With Daddy

Chick cake pops!

Birthday cake cake pops.  Another Pinterest inspired idea.

Easter egg tree :-)

Duckling and chick shape jam sandwiches.  My frugal and eco friendly Mum popped the leftover bits of sandwich (after the shapes had been cut out with cookie cutters) in the freezer.  An easy snack for Isabella when I’m in a hurry!

With some of her Auntie Rhiannon, Rosie and Laura and Uncle Dom

The kids each had a cake pop with a candle to blow out while Isabella (me) blew out hers

Her first birthday cake!  Baked in a sweetcorn tin as my Grandma used to do for us.  The ruffles are really easy to ice on with buttercream (there is a tutorial on YouTube)

Don’t grab the flame!

There was more time to play with presents the next day

What a lucky, loved little girl my baby is!

BABY AND CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER YORKSHIRE | FRANCIS IS ONE!

Monday, February 27th, 2012

I took the last of Francis’ “Watch Them Grow” portraits last Autumn – I still find it incredible how much a baby changes in it’s first year. When babies are about one they are a pleasure to photograph, their little characters are clear to see and they are cheeky and funny. Francis was no exception, he’s grown into a very sweet, inquisitive little man!

BABY PHOTOGRAPHER YORK | SAM

Friday, January 6th, 2012

Time flies by so fast, it’s hard to believe that I first photographed Sam as a three month old baby a year ago. He’s now walking and into everything, keeping his Mum and Grandma on their toes!  His Mum brought him over for his third and final portrait from his ‘Watch Them Grow’ series on a lovely November day, and he enjoyed exploring my garden.  He was a prefect little model – and the first portrait I’ve had in my own garden since moving back home from Newby Hall.  I’ll be doing more of these, so I think plenty of gardening is on the agenda for this year.  Best get hubby out there with the lawnmower!

Sam grew rather a lot last year:

BABY PHOTOGRAPHER YORKSHIRE | ISABELLA

Monday, July 18th, 2011

I know, I know. I’ve been awful at blogging since Isabella was born. OK, so I do kinda have an excuse – babies take up more time than you knew you had. She is sat on my lap right now just about to demand something or other. However I do have to admit to being darn lazy in this department. I have the photos but just haven’t posted them yet, there is always something else to do. And she grows so quickly that as soon as I have taken and edited a set of photos, it’s time to start again.

I won’t bore you with hundreds of photos, but here are a just a few of my favourites so far. Already looking back I can’t believe how much she’s changed. Photos are so important. My Mum said that you look at your baby every day, and they always look the same. Then, one day you wake up and they’re 18. It’s so true.

Some are snapshots taken on a phone, others are taken on my professional camera. All are very precious memories (WARNING: becoming a Mum makes you soppy).

I will blog again soon, honest! I have weddings, engagements and portraits to share. Watch this space!

ISABELLA DORA IS HERE!

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

I’m very proud to announce the arrival of my daughter! Isabella Dora was born on Thursday 17th March at 6.52am weighing 8lb 5oz.

She is a little sweetie! She’s keeping us on our toes and can be quite demanding but she is totally worth it. She’s asleep beside me now.

More photos to follow when I get a chance – it might be some time!

BABY PHOTOGRAPHER YORKSHIRE | SAM

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

How cute is Sam?! He came in with his yummy mummy for the first of his ‘Watch them Grow’ baby portrait sessions a little while ago and made a fine model!

I’m getting lots of practice with babies recently, and my little girl is due in just under 3 weeks, eek! I’m excited but still can’t quite imagine actually having a baby, despite my huge bump.

I’ll be on maternity leave until June but if you’re expecting a baby (or if a friend is – it’s a fab and unusual present) and are interested in the ‘Watch them Grow’ scheme please give me a call. It includes three mini portrait sessions for your baby during their first year, or you can swap a session for some bump portraits if you prefer. You then have a lovely collection of images as a keepsake of those precious and all too fleeting moments!

NEWBY HALL PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER YORKSHIRE | BORCHARDT FAMILY

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

I met the lovely Borchardt family at the Great Yorkshire Show, and they came for their portrait photography session a couple of weeks ago. The girls bought their teddy bears picnic with them, which made for fantastic photographs and helped them to relax at the beginning. They soon got in the swing of things and were very photogenic! They were then joined for a few photographs by their gorgeous brother.
