Beautifully Styled Family Photo Session at 3 different locations, Beach, Park and Home

Lisa chose 3 locations for her beautiful family to have their photography session, we started at the family home, in the garden and inside for a few then we went to a local park which was down by the stream, we ended up at Cocklawburn beach (it was a good idea to end there because, sand).   After looking through our what to wear guide, Lisa had 3 outfits outfit ideas so we matched them up with the locations before we set off, I would usually advise against 3 changes as children can become impatient but these two were troopers right through.  I loved this shoot and I'd love know which location you prefer, let me know in the comments below, beach, park or home... I think my favourite was the beach at the end of the day - it was that really misty weekend that we had, remember?  It was like pea soup at the beach!

Chloe and Martyn's Engagement / Pre Wedding Shoot

After taking a break from weddings over the last couple of years, here I was shooting a pre-wedding session for Chloe and Martyn on Saturday who are getting wed this year!

I have been photographing Chloe, Martyn, and their 2 children for the last 5 years (starting with a lovely black and white maternity session if I recall correctly) so when they asked me to photograph their wedding I almost squealed with excitement - Chloe has the most amazing taste and the venue they have chosen together looks utterly gorgeous. https://www.cherrytrees-kelso.co.uk/

I thought this would be a good session to blog about as it is quite 'typical' now for a pre wedding session to include the couples children and pets, including children allows them to get used to my being there and photographing them with a big camera ahead of the wedding day which means they wont find my unobtrusive approach at all unusual or unfamiliar at the wedding, making the big day much more relaxed for everyone involved.

Today was also a special birthday for someone!  The balloons were a great idea until...

Ooops!  Well we did still manage to turn things around and get some lovely family shots on the beach..

We then left the kids with granny and grandpa and headed off, out of sight for a few couple photos in preparation of the big day!  I always think it is a good idea to book a session like this before a wedding, alongside creating a beautiful set of portraits to mark your engagement I can show you both how to look your very best together, Ill pose you in a way that looks as natural as possible.

Here we are on the way home minus a bunch of balloons but plus 2 penny floater balls, compliments of Granny and Grandpa who kindly came along to help with the Daphne the dog and also to give us some time without the children to practice the couple photography!
