Great Fosters wedding | children as guests

At Emily and Marz’s wedding on Saturday, there were so many children being utterly themselves that I wanted to give them their own post. All were charming, busy making new friends and exploring. It can also be fun working with them, aside from the reportage photographs. One of the little girls was eating a packet of raisins when we wanted to do a group photograph with her in it.  I offered to put the raisins on my head while I took the photograph so she could keep an eye on them – something she did with a rather suspicious look. By the time we came to take another group photograph with her in it, the raisins had gone, but the packet still went on my head. After it ‘fell off’ to get  her (& the adults) to laugh, she raced over and insisted “again, again”. And yes, we did.

Beach photographs

I’ve just been visiting Felixstowe, doing some product shots for a very talented woman who makes beaded earrings – as well as capturing her and her family. We were on the beach just up the road from her home this afternoon doing some Suffolk beach portraits – this is Lorna & her partner Toby.

Yesterday, we shot some of Lorna’s earrings in the natural environment which inspires her. Every background was tried – I especially like the matt beaded earrings draped on teasel bushes with the beach behind – even attempting to be a mountain goat to get the photograph I wanted. Lorna has especially strong memories of the earrings hanging, almost camouflaged on wooden beach supports; while she was putting them there, a rogue wave tried to wash the earrings away, but only managed to wet her jeans and shoes; there was no way she was letting go of her precious jewellry!


We also had the chance to capture Lorna’s two children, Maya and Johanna at the beach.
