Emma and Jon

Categories: Photography, Portrait Photography, Newborn, Family

Emma dropped me a message on my Facebook page to book a photoshoot with her husband Jon and their family.

I love photographing family portraits at Wollaton Hall. With the beautiful backdrop, I usually let the children run and play for a bit which gives amazing and natural smiles.

Lydia

Categories: Photography, Portrait Photography, Newborn

Didn't I tell you this time last year was full of newborns?!

Next up is the gorgeous Lydia and her beautiful big sister Aubrey (and Mum and Dad of course!). Out of the two Aubrey was the least co-operative as is the way with toddlers but a promise of ice cream worked a charm and we got some great images. I'm always happy to visit clients homes to photograph their little ones. Doesn't Lydia look cute in her "Very Hungry Caterpillar" outfit?

Abigail Newborn Shoot

Categories: Photography, Product Photography, Newborn

For some reason, this time last year was a boom for newborn babies! 

I popped over to see little newborn Abigail, who was just 8 days old at the time, to take some pictures of her settling into her new home with proud mum and dad.

Newborns are very sleepy at this stage so it's pretty easy to get images of them looking relaxed and content. As ever though, children dictate the photoshoot so there was some time with feeding and changing. Dad was determined to get a shot of her in his NFL Lions jersey though!

What a wonderful way to commemorate the birth of your tiny human!

Gracie

Categories: Photography, Portrait Photography

I met Martin and Zoe many years ago through roller derby.

At the time they weren't together, they were best friends, so when they announced their relationship we I squealed with happiness. Then after that, little Gracie came along and I swooned at her cute little face. So when Martin asked about booking me for a shoot for the three of them I was so excited!

Gracie was an absolute star during the shoot and I'm sure you'll agree, her pout is to be envied!

James and Leigh

Categories: Wedding Photography, Photography, Portrait Photography

Often, when assisting Tim, his wedding clients are more likely to have traditional style weddings but in the case of James and Leigh, their style more closely matched those of my clients.

When I saw their sign saying “Geek and Half-Pint”, I knew it would be a wedding where I was in my element.

As usual, while Tim attended to the bride getting ready, I was tasked with capturing the images of the groom getting ready.

We arrived at Donnington Park Farmhouse Hotel in Derbyshire, a venue I have shot at so many times now they're used to seeing my face, and I headed up to spend some time with James as he had one of the rooms on site.

After a little while with James, a laugh and joke on while moving furniture around to get the best shot, I headed back to meet Tim and photograph the guests arriving.

As a change of pace, Tim decided to take the front of the ceremony while I shot from the back of the hall. Usually, I take point during the ceremony as my camera has a quieter shutter than Tim's although he will still remind me at every opportunity that his Nikon is better than my Canon...

After the ceremony, and dodging the light showers we managed to get the group photos and my favourite part, the confetti throwing.

James, Leigh, Tim and I all went for a wander to get the couple portraits, and as the rapeseed was out in full force, it made a beautiful yellow background for the images.

 

After dinner, the speeches were hilarious and everyone was smiling and laughing. I captured one of my favourite images of the year, James and Leigh laughing together, it just encapsulated the day perfectly.

Amy and Katie

Categories: Photography, Portrait Photography

Katie came to me looking for a photo shoot for her sister and nephew, I've photographed quite a few kids now and we can always find something that makes them laugh or smile. In this case it was bubbles and biting mummy's finger!

These images are so smiley I love them!

Portraits galore

Categories: Photography, Portrait Photography

It's been a busy month or so in the Luna Studio! In November, I offered out a £20 photoshoot deal with two retouched images as I did last year. Last year there was a couple of shoots, this year I was overwhelmed at the amount of interest in the offer!

In the studio I had lots of doggies, little baby Santa Clauses, twins in reindeer onesies and Christmas jumpers, I've also sold a lot of gift cards so I can't wait to see what January has in store.

 

 

Merry Christmas from Luna Photography and I hope you have a wonderful holiday!

Justin, Zoe and Baby Bump

Categories: Wedding Photography, Photography

I first met Zoe at a Flashes and Lashes Hen Party as a guest of the hen. A very cute and giggly one I was super happy to meet Zoe again when she joined my Roller Derby team. It was shortly after, that Zoe approached me to photograph her wedding to Justin. She explained that she wad very nervous about being photographed and, as I had shot her before she would love for it to be me as I made her feel calm and comfortable.

As the months went by in the run up to the wedding, much to Justin and Zoe's surprise they announced that they were expecting and that Zoe would be around 6 months pregnant on the wedding day. To me, that was no problem at all so I was happy to join in Zoe and Justin's excitement!

 

This was the second wedding I've photographed this year at Wollaton Hall so I had a good idea of the set up and that the planners have military precision so I was glad when I got my printed up time table.

On the morning of the wedding, I headed to their house where Zoe, her mum and the bridesmaids were getting ready. Zoe buzzed about making sure that everyone was taken care of making tea, coffee and lunch, I think we managed to get her to sit down for a total of 30 minutes to get her hair and make up done!

 

I rushed off to Wollaton Hall to catch Justin and the guests arriving and then Zoe. It was a bit of a blustery day and Zoe's veil flew off and I managed to dash and catch it! We headed inside and the ceremony went off without a hitch.

After that, the rest of the day was super relaxed, we breezed through the group shots and then it was time for dinner. The tables had the cutest sweetie centrepieces and Zoe even sorted me my own sweets as I couldn't eat the table ones.

 

After dinner the drink continued to flow and lots of dancing. I was so grateful to be part of a wonderful day.

Matthew and Helen

Categories: Wedding Photography, Photography

Oooops sorry everyone I've been away!

With my Christmas £20 offer and lots of client work it's been a busy time at Luna HQ and will only get busier before the year is out. But until then I still have a couple of weddings from earlier in the year to show you. 

This wedding was another that I assisted Tim, which is becoming quite a frequent but lovely ocourence! We headed to the Bride first, covering the family getting ready. I made friends with the young flower girls (as usual) as one of them called me Ariel because of my red hair.

From there, we headed to the venue, it was raining a bit so Tim and I caught everyobe arriving umbrellas up and skirting puddles! I'm glad to say the rain didn't last all day.

The ceremony was super cute, it had a vintage village feel with bunting and flowers everywhere. The local church group band (which Matthew and Helen are part of) sang some lovely songs and hymns, the ceremony was even presided over by Matthew's father who later wrote and sang a song as part of his speech.

The rest of the day was loads of fun, lots of dancing, Matthew's band played in the evening while Tim and I manned the photobooth. A long day and lots of equipment to lug about (there always is with the photobooth!) but all in all another good one to add to the list!

Flynn

Categories: Photography, Portrait Photography, Clothing

Recently I had the great pleasure of a second photo shoot with the gorgeous little Flynn and his mum Charlotte.

It's amazing to see how much he's grown, he's such a little character! You can see the images from his first shoot in my gallery.

T-shirt and Dribble Bibs by Mini Geek Boutique. The T-shirt even says Flynn in Galifrean!

Mini Geek Boutique

Categories: Photography, Fashion, Portrait Photography, Clothing

There are many people now who claim to be geeks, but what about when you have a little geek of your own?

Tracy, the great mind behind Mini Geek Boutique, found that she couldn't fulfil the need for geek based clothing for her son Toby so she decided to stat up a business and make her own! 

Tracy is inspired by Comics and films but also touches on the areas of computing, maths, role play and space. This means that not only are her clothing and gifts fun but also informative and educational. The best thing of it all is that most of her designs can be personalised because I'm sure the young padawans are going to be more excited about getting dressed in the morning if their jacket has their name on it!

Working with kids on photoshoots isn't easy, but Tracy was clear that she didn't want the photos to be "too posed". The idea was to let each little personality shine through. So, as you can imagine, there was lots of running, jumping and face pulling. 

We all had a brilliantly fun day and the images show that.

 

Not only can you find Mini Geek Boutique online but you may see Tracy out and about at your local comic convention!
