LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY | LAKE DISTRICT | JANUARY 2015

Love ‘quiet’ months, it means I get to do a bit of personal photography, which I always love.

So a few weeks ago I was back in the Lake District again, for a few landscape shots.

However, the landscape hots were my primary reason for being there – I knew there’d be no moon & a clear sky –

which means 1 thing – Stars & the Milky Way πŸ˜‰

I was sat relaxing over the Christmas period, when I realised – Tomorrow’s the day I’m second shooting @ Peckforton Castle for Vivienne Edge!

It was an early start, with the sun just peaking through, but with a slight dusting of snow – Glorious day for a wedding πŸ˜‰

I had met Dan & Matt, as I was lucky enough to be invited along to the pre wedding shoot, so knew this was going to be a good day!

After a great time doing the grooms prep, it was off for the gorgeous ceremony – Although the owl who was suppose to carry the rings didn’t play ball!

However, the doves were up for flying, so the dove release went without a hitch! πŸ˜‰

We then had a little time before & after the groups, the the husbands & managed to grab some great shots around the grounds of Peckforton Castle.

The day for me finished just after the first dance, which, like the rest of the day was a lovely moment & an absolute pleasure to be a part of.

WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY | KINGFISHERS | ABERFORD | DECEMBER 2014

I was invited along, by a photographer friend of mine, to shoot these little birds a few days before I actually got to photograph them!Β …. Damn M62!!

However, I was very glad he was going again a few days later, as I made it that time & here’s the results πŸ˜‰

Unfortunately the “hide” hadn’t been set up to catch the Kingfishers diving, but all that means is I get to photograph them again next year! ha πŸ˜‰

FAMILY SHOOT | CHARLOTTE, JOE, IVY & KITTY | DECEMBER 2014

Ive known Joe & Charlotte for many a year now, In fact photographing their wedding as a

guest a good few years ago, was the reason I started to take photography seriously! πŸ˜‰

So, of course, I was very honoured to be asked to photograph their growing family, which no includes little Ivy & Kitty.

Charlotte choose the farm, as it held a special place from her childhood, the place where her parents still live.

A few others gate crashed the day (Charlotte’s sister, Joanne & husband, Dave), but the more the merrier! πŸ˜‰

I also love photographing somewhere different & there’s nowhere better than a farm – here’s a few from the day πŸ™‚

Thanks must go to Vivienne Edge, whom I second shoot for at a few weddings, for sorting this shoot out!

I’ve Β had the idea of shooting an ‘alternative’ model for a while, and Viv has the contacts!! – All we needed as the day! πŸ˜‰

Well that day came in November & I must say Terri was brilliant to work with, as was MUA Beckie & the results – well they speak for themselves πŸ™‚
