A look back on 2022
All the Bumps!
I welcomed lots of beautiful bumps last year, both to the studio and on my favourite beach! My favourite part is when they come back a couple of months later with their new arrival...it's magical! The best time to have a maternity session is at the 30-34 week stage. All of the dresses you see in the images are available for you to wear in your session, and I can book you a makeover with one of my professional hair & makeup artists...the perfect way to embrace your bump!
All the babies!
Look at all those beautiful colours! I always ask parents to let me know what colours they'd like to see in their session, advising them to choose colours that compliment their home decor or the nursery for when the images are displayed on the walls. Equally I love keeping it timeless and simple with black & white images, particularly silhouettes. The best time for a newborn session is when baby is 5-14 days old so that they are nice and sleepy and still in that wonderful curled up newborn position. My newborn sessions have increased in popularity, so if you're expecting this year, be sure to get your due date booked in my diary. I'd love to welcome you!
All the gorgeous families!
Chubby cheeks, magical mother & daughter bonds and lots of smiles! Both in the studio as well as out and about in the woods and my favourite beach! I've loved my family sessions this year. If your family prefers a more natural, outdoor setting we can head out in to the great outdoors! In the studio, we don't need to worry about what the weather is up to and you'll have access to my studio wardrobe as well as one of my professional makeup artists. Either way, it's a great way to update your family portraits...so important when they are growing away so quickly!
My Beautiful Boudies
Boudoir Shoots remain my most popular session, with ladies coming from all over Devon & Cornwall and beyond, I still can't believe that! Boudoir Sessions are a great way to give yourself a confidence boost and they also make a great gift for a loved one if you need to find an excuse :) Doing it for yourself is absolutely the best reason. The ladies I photographed last year were again a wonderful set of every day ladies who most had the usual hang ups that we all have. They all worried about whether they could pose or look like the other women in my photos. As you can see, they all smashed it! It's wonderful to see my ladies leave the studio with a little buzz - because for some it isn't just about the end result of the photographs, it's about pushing themselves out of their comfort zone and doing something they couldn't have ever imagined doing, and enjoying it too!
I still pinch myself about how lucky I am to have the best job in the world, year after year I welcome and fall in love with so many very lovely people. Thank you for letting me follow my dream!
