Studio Portrait Photography with Grandparents & Grandchildren.

I seem to have had a run on photographing grandparents together with their grandchildren recently, here is one of my latest shoots.

Granddad, Ron didn’t want anything too fancy just a nice traditional portrait together with his wife Jean and grandchildren, Cameron and Amelia. So to keep things simple we started off with some nice straightforward studio shots based around a leather sofa. However, that was clearly too comfy so, after a short while we moved that out of the way and got everybody down on the floor. Once that became too easy, and we had yet another break in the weather we headed out for a walk around the local park. A great chance to get some fresh air, a little sunshine and some great photos.

Family Portrait Photography Gosfield

I recently photographed Katie (aged 3) together with her glamorous grandma Jesse.

At the time of the shoot Katie was actually only two, but it was her 3rd birthday 5 days later. She had never been photographed formally before and so I expected her to be a little shy / apprehensive. I therefore wanted to keep the shoot as informal and fun as I could. I had hoped for some nice weather and fortunately we had a little bit of sunshine that day, so I split the session between the studio and the local park. (By the way that sunshine was a lucky break, it’s actually snowing quite heavily again now).

As predicted Katie was a little shy to start with but with a little help from grandma, the promise of chocolate biscuits and squash and a chance to see Bo our little puppy (see earlier blog entries for pictures) she did get in to the fun of it.

Jesse was brilliant!

Wedding Photography Training in Braintree.

You never stop learning as a photographer. (I was going to say never stop ‘developing’ but that may have seemed a bit corny).Even though I have a degree in photography, as a professional wedding and portrait photographer it’s very important for me to continue my training. To develop and practice new skills and to experiment and practice with fresh ideas. This not only ensures I develop as a photographer (ah! ‘develop’ I’ve said it now) but also ensures I stay ahead of the competition and continually improve upon the service I provide to mycustomers.

I recently completed a two day advanced wedding course run by Braintree photographer Jeff Turnbull. (http://www.Photo-Training.co.uk/)This was a full on two days and I have to say I was pretty exhausted by the end of it, as were most of the other participants. There was a lot of very useful front loading and interactive input from Jeff, it was also extremely useful to network and share experiences with the other students.The highlight though had to be the ‘shoot’, Jeff arranged two excellent models, Nezda and Anthony and we spent a whole afternoon photographing them at a local wedding venue, Prested Hall.

Here are some of my shots below.

St Catherine’s Church, Gosfield Wedding – Essex

I first met Pauline and John just over a year ago when they first booked me to photograph their Gosfield wedding and I have met them several times since to discuss the finer details of the day. I have to say they really are a lovely down to earth fantastic couple that were a joy to work with.

Although the recent snow had cleared the weather on the day was not the best, it was cold, windy and raining. I had hopes that it would improve by the time of the wedding but alas it didn’t. Still they say it’s lucky if it rains on your wedding day (it threw it down when Kate and I got married).

The wedding itself was in St Catharine’s Church in Gosfield, which is a beautiful church and a lovely place to get married. The reception followed at the White Hart in Great Yeldham, a very prestigious venue.

The Bride and Groom, and everyone else for that matter were very relaxed and looked fantastic, see what you think.
