They’re only this little once
Yes, I do family photography. Our kids are only small for a short time and I think it’s so important to capture them while they’re still care-free and fascinated by everything (quick! Before they become surly teens!).
We take a lot of photos of our families. Smartphones are great for that, I’ll admit. But does taking MORE photos mean that we’re taking BETTER photos? I’m not sure that’s the case. Apart from anything else, you can never be in those photos with your kids if you’re the one taking them. Secondly, no matter what those clever folks at Apple come up with, I just don’t think phones can replace proper cameras, great lighting and a professional eye. And selfies? Don’t get me started on selfies. Unless you have arms that stretch to around three feet long, they’re just a substandard type of photo. Repeat after me: you’re better than the selfie.
For me, becoming a mum was just the best thing ever. And as a mum I know how freakin’ fast those early years go by. The pictures of my daughter from when she was tiny are so precious to me, I’m so pleased I have them to admire whenever I want to. I honestly think I’ll still be gazing at them when she’s forty-years-old.
what does your day look like?
Veronica and Luke’s Cissbury Barns Boho Wedding was a delight to capture. For them they wanted the whole day to be about their guests being relaxed and having the best time. Cissbury Barns certainly delivered on that, with it’s rustic yet elegant vibe, and stunning South Downs backdrop.
The House Meadow in the beautiful village of Biddenden, Kent is one of my all time favourite places to shoot. It’s run by the most wonderful family whom I love, and it’s got all the ingredients for the perfect wedding.
Oh hello 2020! Not quite sure how that happened! Another year flew by so fast...but then again, I say that every new year. So, after much deliberations and the usual January procrastination my 2019 Best Wedding Photography post has finally arrived! I make it sound...
SUSSEX & LONDON
I'm a Sussex based wedding photographer, but I love to shoot all over the south east of England and if you're planning a destination wedding, I'm all ears.
