Not long till Christmas!

OMG…… how long till Christmas?  6 weeks I believe.  Where has the time gone?  As usual I’ve been meaning to keep you updated with regular post updates but I’ve failed miserably again.  I’ve been so busy with photo shoots, editing and stupidly re-decorating the house.  Not just one room but five!  Not a good idea at this time of year when your trying to stay organised.

I’ve got loads of images I want to share and I will get round to uploading, however I’ve just finished editing this batch and I couldn’t resist putting up a couple of images of the gorgeous little Katie.  She’s only 2 but wanted me to keep on taking her picture lol!

 

 

New Props

If there is anything I love about photographing children it’s all the fun and funky props that I’m forever searching for.  However, I discovered I spent a small fortune buying props!!!!    I like to make sure that every session doesn’t look the same and that I can offer my clients something that nobody else has.  I know it’s not always possible but I DO try.  I’ve seen me drag my mum to car boot sales, hobbey craft shops and thrift shops lol in the search for that treasure prop.  I bought two knitting books the other day determined to knit these cute little pants.  After spending a whole day, knitting and unknitting and knitting and unknitting I gave up, popper the needles and wool in a bag along with the book and gave it to my Granny.  I’m determined to try it again but I so desperealtely want these little pants for my next baby session.

Anyway just wanted to share a few of my recent props with you all.

WANTED – 1-10 day old baby girl with hair!!

Yes I know it’s a little random title for a blog post but I wanted to be pretty specific about what I want lol.

As much as I love what I do sometimes time doesn’t allow me to photograph what I want to and the best way to go about that is to advertise  a free sitting.

I’m looking to photograph a baby girl within 10 days old with a mass of dark hair wearing a range of props that I have.  If you are keen to have your baby girl photographed in exchange for some free images please free to contact me and I will explain in more detail.

Tea Stain

Thought I would share this Friday Funny pic ;-), I’ve been dying to use this tea cup and saucer that I got from my Granny.  I don’t know the correct age of them but I believe they are at least a 150 years old.  I was a little nervous taking them out the box and am glad to have finally been able to produce a picture using them.

Today I had the urge to shoot a pic for the first time really in ages. I’ve also been jotting down a few ideas that have been in my head for a wee while now and I was supposed to do one of them today but it’s too cold to go outside!

I would highly recommend that if you ever try a shot like this to be prepared beforehand, as trying to figure things out while wearing a bandage round your head doesn’t really allow you much visibility if you catch my drift!!! As I walked down the stairs into the kitchen Amara just looked at me, asked what on earth I was doing and carried on drawing her picture as if it was part of normal day life for her lol. I’ve also discovered that I’m not actually that good at wrapping my head in bandages successfully!

Tomorrow I have my very first underwater shoot with a film camera and I think I’m gonna need all the luck in the world and hope to hell I don’t drown.
