What to Wear to an Autumn Mini Session

I didn’t plan on writing a blog post about this, but my clients were so inspirational in their outfits that I want to take a moment to talk about it.

Usually, I ask all my clients to wear only White, Beige or Cream. They can add in an accent colour with accessories (mustard-yellow scarf, or blue boots, etc). But ONLY ONE accent colour. Why do I limit the colour possibilities? It guarantees that my subjects will match well with the background. The ONE accent colour also works well with the neutral colours as well as being flexible to take off (hence why you can have accessories in accent colours) if they don’t match well.

In comes the Pearson family. Meeting them was entirely impromtu. My booked clients were a bit late and this family perfectly colour-coordinated for an autumn shoot was just getting ready to take photos of themselves with their iPhones. In steps me–an outgoing American–offering to take their photos! I couldn’t miss this opportunity to take photos of this beautiful family and their rustic-red and mountain-green colours perfectly blended together with sandy-tan and burnt-brown staples (trousers, shoes, etc). Take a look at their photos below and be inspired to coordinate your family photos like them! You won’t go wrong 😉

The Milky Way Project UK – Tandem Nursing

I have teamed up with The Milky Way Project UK sharing that special bond between baby and mum on their breastfeeding journey. I am going to be offering breastfeeding sessions to capture a special moment for you to cherish.

These sessions will be free sessions as long as you are happy for your images to be used as part of the project to normalise breastfeeding. Your photographs may be purchased for print or download.

No age limits on the baby/child. 
These will be taking place on various dates in February please comment below if you are interested or drop me a message. Also feel free to tag any of the breastfeeding mums you know.

I am based in Hamble, but will travel to Southampton for this project if I can get several mums on the same day!

SNEAK PEEK – Chrissy + Duncan = Ryan’s Family Photos

I had the loveliest time taking photos of a dear friend of mine in Hamble. It was so heart-warming to celebrate her breastfeeding journey by doing a breastfeeding photo shoot despite the dreary and drizzly weather! I admire Chrissy’s determination and dedication to breastfeeding. I took so many photos that it was very difficult to narrow down my favourites, so here’s a sneak peek of SEVEN photos, yikes! I think I’ll be editing away tomorrow 🙂

SNEAK PEEK: Christina’s Maternity and Family Session

DSC_0272Nothing makes me happier than to take maternity photos!  Maybe it’s because I’m expecting as well 🙂

Christina and Daniel are a beautiful pair.  They are such hard workers for the kingdom of God working in a private Christian school.  I was so happy to bless them with a maternity/family session!  It was a frigid winter day to take photos, but they handled it well.  Here’s a sample of their photo shoot:
