It was great to be with Susan and Tony for a couple of hours before their wedding. They were both ‘second timers’ so wanted very, very relaxed photos in a location they loved before they then went on to actually do the deed! They chose to have photos in Blakeney which as any North Norfolk-ite knows is a beautifully picturesque harbour location on the coast. We took some inside and outside shots and got some pictures that Susan and Tony were very happy with.
A family in the making… Neil and Kristine celebrated the upcoming birth of their first baby by coming to the studio for a very relaxed maternity shoot. It was in fact a gift for them from Kristine’s sister, who bought a KOP gift voucher for them. We had a lovely time and got some fabulous pictures which I know they’ll treasure.
I got to know lovely burlesque performer Yippee IKay a couple of years ago and I’m now pleased to say that she’s a friend as well as a wonderful talent! Yippee came to the studio recently for a shoot and we were lucky enough (with the weather) to do both some inside and outside shots of a couple of her routines, which she will be using for promotion and to send to castings. At the end of the shoot we had a little time left just to have some fun taking pictures with some of her fantastic clothing and props.
The lovely Tracey and Gary got married at St John the Evangelist in King’s Lynn on a beautiful September day. Given the location of the church, we had the opportunity to take photos in The Walks which formed a fantastic backdrop and then we moved on to Knights Hill Hotel for the evening. Tracey and Gary had put everything into their day; it was all planned down to the last beautiful detail, but at the same time it felt relaxed and fun. A perfect day.
I have done lots of work over the last few years for Bridget Mitchell (aka ARCA Preservation), Helhoughton based professional conservator and bespoke box maker – sixteen or so shoots recording her lovely work at the last count. The images, in a variety of sizes, are for her publicity and towards building her website in due course.
I had the real pleasure at the end of last year of photographing the beautiful Amy for a calendar that she wanted to give to her new hubby Mick for Christmas – Mick’s Man Cave Calendar! We worked together through the shots that Amy wanted, some of which we made up ourselves and some where we used existing images from books that Amy and I both liked as a starting point. It took a few hours to get it right (and Amy worked very hard!) but I am assured that the final product was very much to Mick’s liking! Also, and for me equally importantly, Amy tells me she loved it too. It was a pleasure to work on because it meant so much to them both. Whilst not typical, it was actually true ‘family’ photography (which is where I’ve filed this post), because of the love that went into it. Thanks Amy for the opportunity of shooting you (so to speak!). The two shots featured are (respectively) mine and Amy’s favourites!
If anyone out there wants me to work with them on a similar project, please do get in touch – I’m all ears!
