Dodging the rain clouds ~Family photographer Hampton Court & Teddington

2015-05-14_0044.jpg

I met this lovely lady about 5 years ago at our local running club. I hadn't met her hubby or 2 beautiful girls before and I was so pleased that they certainly LOVED the camera and made the shoot so easy for me. The only issue was the impending black clouds but I think you will agree you wouldn't know from theses gorgeous colourful pics.   I always direct clients to my "what to wear" info on my website and to my Pinterest board for ideas and what bests works.  I always think if you are going to take the time and effort to book a family photographer and invest in some beautiful memories you may as well pay attention to what you are all wearing. This family looked effortlessly smart yet casual and most of all comfortable. They wore colours that complimented them and each other rather than being to matchy matchy.   This shoot took place in a lovely park in Surrey at 10 am on a Saturday and lasted about 1.5 hours. The girls were treated to a yummy hot chocolate after as a treat for being such great models!   The family had this to say after viewing their online gallery ...... Thanks so much, these are fantastic ~  You certainly put the girls at ease very quickly, which have really helped with the photos!

Maternity Twickenham - Studio photographer

This lovely lady came for her Maternity shoot at 36 weeks pregnant  It is her first child so there was much excitement in her family to meet the new arrival.   Nataly wanted a mixture of traditional studio poses and we also used my lovely loft space which is flooded with lush soft light for a more contemporary feel.  Can't wait to meet the baby in a few weeks at their home.  If you would like to book a Maternity session with me it is best to book me as early as possible into your pregnancy.  I find that around 34/35 weeks is the best time to capture you blossoming bump and at this time you still have a little extra energy left to enjoy the shoot.  Not everyone is a natural model or feels at their best whilst they are pregnant but I will do my best to pose you in a way that compliments your body and your growing belly.  This is a testimonial from a past client who was apprehensive and a little nervous about their maternity shoot. Testimonial: I just wanted to thank Jo for my amazing maternity photos, one that I will treasure for life. You were so lovely and professional making me feel at ease and putting my butterfly nerves to rest. I look forward to coming back to you in a few weeks time for a newborn shoot.

Sunny Days~ Portugal Family photography

I was lucky enough to have two shoots in Portugal this Summer.  These guys were neighbours of the family I have previously blogged about here Believe it or not the family had not had any propfessional family photographs taken since the boys were 10 years old!  They are now 21! and TWINS? lol

We had a lovely afternoon at their home which is on a golf course then all went out for dinner - Piri Piri Chicken ! YUMMY

Summer Love ~ Family lifestyle photography, Surrey

These sweet sisters were fabulous! Made my job sooooo very easy! Even mum and dad were surprised how much they were enjoying the shoot and were 'posing' for the camera! I am very much enjoying this late summer weather ~ long may it continue! 2014-09-26_00102014-09-26_00112014-09-26_00122014-09-26_00132014-09-26_00142014-09-26_00152014-09-26_00162014-09-26_00172014-09-26_00182014-09-26_00192014-09-26_00202014-09-26_00212014-09-26_0022

Double trouble & Birthday balloons {Family lifestyle photography, Surrey}

My lovely friends booked me for a lifestyle shoot in a park local to them where they love to walk their gorgeous dog, Bailey. ( My dog's girlfriend!) I know this family very well and it was a pleasure to capture their love and warmth they have for each other ( Most of the time - Hey Ted & George?!! ) That day just so happened to be Maisy's 11th Birthday so balloons were a must until they accidentally flew away! lol That's Xmas sorted for this family #jobdone

3 little lads ~ Family Photography Walton on Thames

These two cheeky chaps came a few years back to see me after they had a mini Xmas session ( which is like a taster session ).  But this time they brought their sweet new baby brother!  Who was a you can see an utter joy!  I managed to talk Mum to be in the photo's too - which now I am sure she is pleased I persuaded her!

Family Year Book { Family Photography Surrey}

Last year I started something !  I finally got round to creating an annual year book for MY family - here is my first book for 2012 .   I carried on the year in 2013 and made sure I was capturing special times ~ my kids birthdays, my niece's Communion, family holidays and other occasions like Brownie plays, snowy days in the park and of course monthly pictures of our beloved family Labradoodle Obi.  Last month we spent a few hours designing the photo book which we received today and say say we are thrilled with it would be an understatement.  The girls love going through the book and reminiscing ! I can't wait to have a whole shelf full of these photo books.  As a family photographer I spend my days helping my clients capture special times and events in their lives, sometimes I just run out of gas when it comes to mine ...But not any more .... I found this timely link on Facebook today ~ About capturing daily activities every day  and presenting them in a book .#Family Photographer Surrey
