Autumn portraits at Knypersley Pool

I love Autumn! As a photographer, I love the four seasons as it gives me a varied backdrop to capture beautiful images of couples and families.  Although Autumn reminds me that winter months are coming soon, which I personally don’t look forward too due to the cold.  I still love Autumn season the best as there is still something so breathtaking about the colours and the landscape. I photographed this beautiful family sometime in January this year when we did the winter themed photoshoot and they contacted me again for another portrait session, this time to capture the Autumn colours.  We decided to head to Knypersley Pool to get the best backdrop and varied landscapes.  Hope you enjoy viewing these images.

Family Portraits in Knypersley

Here’s a recent family portrait which I photographed in Knypersley, all photos were taken at the family’s home. The kids felt very relaxed as they were home and had a good time during the session.  I wanted to showcase the connection which both the siblings had and how much they loved each other. I am sure you would agree that I managed to do that in this shoot. Feel free to contact us if you would like a similar session done in your home. Gift certificates are now also available for £50 and £100 if you would like to gift someone this opportunity to capture some amazing and candid photos which they can keep for the rest of their lives.

Autumn themed Family Portrait Photography

As a Portrait and Lifestyle photographer, I am lucky to be able to use nature as my canvas to capture beautiful portraits of families.  Of all the seasons, my favourite just has to be Autumn. I find that there is something so magical about this season.  Seeing the green leaves change colour and then eventually falling off the tree and the changing landscape is amazing. If the day is just right, although its cold, with a bit of sunshine, I am able to photograph a family having a lovely time in the park.  As a photographer, I feel lucky to have Biddulph Grange Park close by as I am able to use it as my backdrop for my portrait sessions.

Family Engagement Portrait Session

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.

Themed Portrait: Alice in Wonderland

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 are a set of outdoor portraits of a mother and daughter which I photographed at the Greenway Bank Country Park in Knypersley. Its a beautiful park which is a lot quieter and has less dog walkers, it also has a lovely playground, visitors centre and cafe opened during certain hours.  The park connects to Knypersley Pool through a beautiful woodlands walks which has some lovely picnic spots as well as benches around.

Studio Style Family Portrait

It has been a busy couple of weeks with a few blog postings in the que so in the mean time hope you enjoy viewing these indoor studio style family portrait shots. I generally love doing my portrait sessions in the outdoors such as parks or gardens but sometimes if the client requests or if its a pregnancy / newborn portrait shoot then I can do the portrait session indoors with additional strobes. There are two parts to this photoshoot, first here are some sneak peak images of the fun family portrait photosession, all photos were taken in the client’s home for the purpose of creating a canvas print afterwards.

Themed Portrait : Princess and Tiaras

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.

Winter Wonderland Family Portraits

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.
