It's Toni-Anne and Mark's big day today. Congratulations.

We've been keeping a close eye on the weather all week, it's looking like we might get away with avoiding the torrential rain that has been forecast all week. I've just checked the forecast again and it's been downgraded to light showers and sunshine. Fingers crossed!

Wedding guests

Tomorrow, Bob and me are off to Bradford with family and friends to our very good friends, Vicky and Kevin's wedding.

It's a rare treat for us to be attending a wedding as guests and I can't wait!

Will I be taking a camera? Professional etiquette says I don't take a big professional camera but I may sneak my compact camera in so I can lean out of my seat and take the occasional photograph in between sips of champagne.

Excited? I may very well implode with excitement before tomorrow!

Ta daaaaaaaa!!!!

The new website is finally, after many a false start, live!!  (covering my ears to lessen the noise of the fanfare)

It still needs a tweak or two but up to now feedback has been good.

We are working on getting password protected clients' galleries on there so you and your guests can log in to look and order photos online.

I'm so excited!!  Why not check it out:

Bridal Boudoir

I have a bride coming round this morning to pick up her photos from her bridal boudoir photo shoot.

It's a wedding present for her hubby to be. I have a feeling he may like them!

It was all very cloak and dagger, the bride, Vicky, had to sneak everything out of the house and make excuses about where she was going.

She brought the under pinnings, shoes  and jewellery she is planning to wear on the big day and we spent a happy afternoon in the studio creating some beautiful and very special images for her husband to be.

I'll post some pics from the shoot after the wedding, just in case hubby to be landed on this page by mistake.

My gorgeous boys (sniffle)

I think it's fair to say that the Mother of the twin boys I worked with the other day was pleased with the photos.  She just kept repeating "My gorgeous boys," while having the odd discreet sniffle. Oh how I love it when Mum's get emotional over the photos!

Isn't it funny how sometime you need to see a photograph to really see something objectively?  Several times while she was looking through the  images she commented how much they looked like her but that she'd never noticed it before.

I'm might be wrong but I have a sneaky feeling we might have a couple of Dr Who fans here.  Mum tells me that this is how they usualy are at home - with their noses in a book. Aah, bless 'em!

A little something I threw together

Did a great shoot in the studio yesterday with 8 year old twin boys. What a hoot!

I don't often get to work with older boys, it's usually babies, and I've never worked with twins before I did eventually work out which was which but it took me a while.

I've been experimenting a lot lately with these composite style images, even the Photoshop Queen needs to keep her skills up to date! What do you think of it?

Portraits seem to be keeping me busy lately, tomorrow I'm photographing another little baby and again on Friday.  Busy, busy, busy, love it!

Spring has sprung!

Finally, spring has arrived, I'm not even wearing boots or woolies!!

Our new advert is going into the brilliant  County Brides magazine, be sure to pick up a copy, it's full of really useful information and contacts.

All the major ie. bank holiday fates are filling up fast  for next year.  A couple of dates we could have filled five times over!!!  It's dead easy to underestimate how fast peak dates fill up, you haven't got as much time as you think so don't hang about - get all your major suppliers booked in plenty of time and avoid being disappointed!!
