Obviously I thought this was a great idea. The main idea of shoots with kids is to capture fun and there cute side.

The children really did love it. They were quick to dive in and start eating the cakes, they had one each. Then as you would expect they turned on each other and started to cover each other in Butter Icing.  I must admit I was laughing alot. It was hard not too.  There parents loved it too. I always think with these shoots how funny it will be at there 18th or 21st with these images on the walls. We didnt have cake shoots when I was little.

So if you think this would suit your children then get in touch. Here are some highlights. (right click to view larger)

If you have a date and venue set I can send this. Its based on information on here but with a little more added.

If you like the brochure or what you have seen already on the website then the next step is a free consultation. No obligation to book, but a chance to meet and look at some more of my work in print. I usually meet at my studio but I’m happy to meet somewhere local, a hotel or your home.

Ive had a great response already this last few weeks. August being popular. 2017 starting to book now too. I hope to hear from you soon.

Regards

Lee

I had met the couple a few times so was looking forward to there day. The prep started off at home before moving onto the hotel. It was a relaxed wedding prep, Rachaels dad was a toast master of a different kind, providing fresh toast and coffee. I thought this was very thoughtful.

The weather was pretty good for December, it did start to rain a little as we finished the photography. It would be lovely to get snow in December, but we rarely do.

As ever Mount Pleasant went out of there way to make the day run smooth for the couple. The room used for the Wedding Breakfast is a large room and always set up perfect. There were alot of guests so the space really works well.

Below are a few highlights of the day.

Montana & Billy Wedding – Rogerthorpe Manor Hotel

In December I was asked to photography this lovely couples wedding. I also had my videographer John with me. It was all shot at the hotel which can make life so much easier when the weather is bad. It wasnt too bad as it happens, although a little cold. We started with prep photography in the brides room, she had alot of bridesmaids which makes the photography easier. Lots of people to focus on as well as the bride. The brides mother making sure it all went to plan.

The ceremony at Rogerthorpe manor is always good as theres lots of space. So John and myself were able to set up easily. The day ran well and after the official photographs etc, it was time for the meal. Now this wasnt like alot of weddings. Before the main course arrived the party seemed to start. Everyone having such a good time, and why not. Make the most of such a special day.

Just to add, John my videographer is very good. His attention to detail etc is perfect for your special day, ask me for a sample of his work.

One of the things you dont always see at a wedding, well i never have, is the Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the world. Yes Tyson Fury was there as it was his wifes sisters wedding. Very nice guy and a lovely family.

So here are some photograph Highlights for you.

Newborn Shoot

Last week I had a last minute inbox asking me to do a newborn shoot. The baby boy was early, and actually was born Christmas Day. I do love to do newborn shoots. I dont do loads per year but I do like to do them. Luckily he was doing all the right things, eating then sleeping. Although he put up a fight at first

I dont rush newborn shoots, they are best done withing 14 days, less is overdue. There is always tea or coffee in studio so you and your partner can get comfy. I also have to make sure the studio is lovely and warm. For this shoot we started with a blue blanket, stretched over a large posing bean, with other blankets and cushions for shape. We also used the old faithful tin bath. Great for safe posing.  Posing takes a while which is why we aim for more time. I dont claim to be a newborn specialist though, there are people who do just that. But I do provide some lovely images.

I hope you like the photo sample collage. Il be posting more soon.

thanks

Lee
