Here’s a Engagement Portrait Session which I photographed for a couple who recently got engaged. They received a gift voucher for an hour long Portrait session as their Engagement present from one of their family member. They decided for me to photograph them at a local park in Biddulph, Staffordshire. Once the photos were edited, the couple were given a wide selection of photos to choose from an online gallery. I also edited the images into black and white as well, these images can be found on my facebook page under ‘Family Engagement Portrait Session‘. Hope you enjoy viewing these photos and feel free to contact me if you need to purchase gift vouchers as a present for someone you know or book a similar session for yourself. Moments captured for a lifetime.
Here’s a themed photo shoot which I photographed recently in Staffordshire. The theme was Alice in Wonderland, based on a novel written in 1865 by an English mathematician Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar creatures. We recreated this fantasy themed tea party with the help of some props and cakes in the woods. Here is a collage of some of the images, do scroll down further to see more images.
Portrait shoots like this are so much fun for children as they get to choose the theme, get involved in the planning, preparation of the props and bring their favourite characters to life. These sessions brings the kid’s imagination to life as it keeps them excited throughout the shoot. Themed portraits can be booked directly by yourself for your kids or you can purchase them as a gift certificate for a family or friend. Please contact me through my website or facebook page regarding how to purchase gift certificates, pricing, booking availability, theme ideas or any other questions and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Here’s another outdoor children’s themed portrait which I recently photographed of princess, tiaras and a little bit of tears. Although it looks like a sunny day in the photos, I can easily say the temperature was around 4 degrees celcius that day and the girls were absolutely fabulous in taking off their coats for the photos. We also had constant rain throughout the shoot but were lucky to have some beautiful photographs to show. I hope you enjoy viewing these images, as you can see the daffodils are slowly blossoming and these are the signs that spring is almost nearing. I personally can’t wait for the warm sunny weather to arrive.
Here are some sneak peak images of a recent outdoor themed portrait shoot done at a nearby park. I love doing themed photo shoots especially of children as they get to dress in their favourite costumes or characters and this makes the photoshoot even more magical.These are mini portrait sessions, which usually lasts about 30 minutes and prices for these are really reasonable, so drop me a line for available dates and pricing. In the mean time, I hope you enjoy viewing these images.
I love this series of snowy portraits which I photographed for a family in Biddulph, Staffordshire. We knew it was going to be cold that weekend but did not anticipate snow. Nevertheless the whole family and I had so much fun just playing about and getting these beautiful family portraits at the wintery Victorian Garden. We were very lucky as most of the snow melted away the next day. The view at the Biddulph Grange Gardens was breathtaking, I would definitely recommend a visit there the next time it snows. Do enjoy viewing these shots and feel free to contact me if you would like to get some portrait photos done of yourself or your family.
Goodbye Autumn, Hello Winter – This is the last shoot I did at the end of Autumn, as we gear for the coming wet and cold winter months. This family portrait session was photographed at Little Moreton Hall (also known as Old Moreton Hall) in Congleton, Cheshire which is under the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty. Little Moreton Hall houses a beautiful Tudor Manor House which is easily 500 years old. I used the Knot Garden and the scenic lake area situated at the back of the Manor House as my backdrop for most of the shoot on the blog. Although it was cold, nearly 4 deg when I did the shoot, the kids were just fabulous and were eager to be photographed. I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and hope you enjoy viewing these images too.
When I started doing photography full time almost 10 years ago, I was photographing everything from weddings, food, corporate functions, parties to portraits. As the years went by and as I had my own family, I realised there is a different kind of satisfaction and joy photographing children and family portraits. Seeing the little ones grow so quickly over the years, I find it is important to capture their milestones as keepsake for the future or for grandparents. When I photograph children, I try to infuse some fun into the sessions and encourage them to showcase their personalities or their funny side. Hope you enjoy viewing these sneak peak images which I photographed for a family in Stoke-on-Trent.
Here are some recent outdoor family photos which I photographed in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. I am happy to photograph families in different locations such as parks or country clubs even more so if the place means something special to them. For families who prefer doing the shoot at home due to convenience or because they have young kids and want them in familiar surroundings, I am also open to that especially if they have a beautiful house or garden. Hope you enjoy viewing the sneak preview images and feel free to contact me for a quotation if you want something similar done for your family.
I recently had the opportunity to do a family portrait session at the Biddulph Grange Country Park in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.The Country Park was originally part of a larger Biddulph Grange Estate, its 73 acres wooded hillside site is a lovely place for families to go for a walk on its walking paths, fishing or picnic on a sunny day as it comprises of a large lake, streams, meadows and ponds. There are some ducks up at the pond, so if you are heading there, do bring some stale bread to feed them. You will also notice a beautiful stone boat house from 1904 which has been restored by the lake too. There is a visitor centre with café which is open at various times during the year and provides some information about events held within the park such as art exhibitions.
Let me share with you some photos I photographed of my good friends and their kids in Congleton, Cheshire. We did an outdoor family portrait session at their beautiful home, and how blessed we were that the weather was wonderful as well. Both their girls are 5 and 3 years old respectively and extremely photogenic. I had so much fun playing about with them in their garden while capturing these lovely images. Here are some sneak preview shots of their family portrait session, here’s little Megan to begin with.
