Well, it’s been a long time since my last blog and we have seen unprecedented times! I do hope that you and your families have managed to come through the coronavirus thus far unscathed and both physically and mentally intact.
Sadly too many have not. I myself know of one person who has died from the virus and of acquaintances of friends and family who have taken their own lives. It truly has been a tough time for many and for some, including personal Friends of mine, it still is.
I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy in February via c-section (pictured above). It was just as i was able to get out and about again that lockdown hit, so I feel I have had about 6 weeks longer than anyone else! 🙂 He has kept me busy along with home schooling my 6 year old son.
Of course i had to stop working when lockdown hit and i have only just started working again taking photos of babies, children and families as these take place outdoors on location. I have not been able to restart my newborn sessions within people’s homes at the moment due to the covid restrictions. I am not yet sure when I will be starting these again.
I am very pleased to be able to get back to work and looking forward to meeting new families :). I was very disappointed to not be able to do my usual bluebell shoots and it is unlikely I will be doing any lavender shoots this year either 😦 However I am here and very excited to receive your enquiries and take some fabulous photos of your babies, toddlers and young children for memories that will last a lifetime.
Here are a few images from my first shoot back. They are a little different to my usual style of photography as they are more posed and it was a large family shoot that also involved alot of adults but this is the third time I have photographed members of this family, and so we had quite a good rapport built already which meant all involved were that little bit more relaxed. I am looking forward to my next shoot of two siblings which will be very much back to my more natural and candid style I really hope to be meeting you and your family for a photo shoot soon. In the meantime take care 🙂
