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!

Jez and Chole

Categories: Wedding Photography, Portrait Photography

Jez and Chloe were referred to me through Lucille's Locks, Lucille and Chloe were childhood friends and Lucille was also one of the bridesmaids!

Unlike most of the weddings I cover, Chloe wanted my coverage of the day to start at the church, so I met Jez and his best man at St Michael's in Breaston, Derbyshire before the guests started to arrive. It was a great opportunity to get some shots of Jez and the wonderful styling of the wedding party. It was a country style theme with beautiful wild flowers with hessian and tweed.

 

Chloe arrived in a beautiful vintage convertible, driven by her dad who then walked her down the aisle. The ceremony was super sweet and then we popped into the church grounds for group photographs and couple portraits.

Chloe and Jez then drove away in a beautiful camper van to meet us all at Donnington Park Farmhouse Hotel where we shot more photographs of the bridal party and the newly-weds before the wedding guests all sat down for the wedding breakfast.

I adore the styling of this wedding, and the combination of that with the brickwork and fields at Donnington Park Farmhouse Hotel made for some fabulous images.

Ashley and Leda

Categories: Wedding Photography, Photography, Portrait Photography

Most of my wedding clients find me through referrals, but Leda is one of the few that found me through my website.

In the lead up to the day, Leda also contacted me about a makeup artist which of course I referred Sali at Ms Moo Make-up.

Working with Sali on the morning of a wedding is always a joy as we team up brilliantly. Other than photographing Leda getting ready, the morning was spent photographing her two gorgeous dogs and the two small bridesmaids spinning around blowing bubbles.

We headed off to St Mary's Church in Clifton where Ashley was waiting, looking a little nervous!

The ceremony was a beautiful little traditional wedding but unfortunately as it came time for the couples portraits the clouds descended and the rain came!

As always, I'd had the foresight to check the weather and brought my umbrellas! Ashley and Leda were happy to still have their photographs done outside and they came out great, giving a lovely atmosphere and story to the images.

But, just as quickly as the rain had appeared, it lifted and we could travel to the reception with the top down on the convertible car driven by Leda's bridesmaid!

We arrived at the Canalhouse in Nottingham for the reception, which works so well as a venue!

After dinner, the speeches were gorgeously heartfelt and the first dance was beautiful.

 

All in all a wonderful day, and even though I am no longer a good weather jinx, it just shows you don't need sun to have a perfect wedding day.

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!

Mycroft

Categories: Photography, Portrait Photography

Remember the wedding last year of Zoe, Justin and Baby bump?

Well, welcome to the world Mycroft!

Such a cute and animated baby, Mycroft had us all laughing with his little facial expressions. As with photographing most babies, we got a good mix of him awake and asleep so it was lovely to see both sides of him. Lots of cuddling and giggles all round.

Donna and Ebony

Categories: Photography, Portrait Photography

When Donna approached me about a photoshoot with her and her daughter Ebony, I was delighted. I love photographing children and babies and when Donna explained to me that she had not been able to get images with Ebony when she was first born, I was excited to be given that honour and responsibilty.

Donna loved the images so much so that she booked another shoot in less than a year later. I hope to see more of Donna and Ewan and to watch the beautiful Ebony grow up.

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!

Barn and Aimee - Handmade Love

Categories: Wedding Photography, Photography

At my first meeting with Aimee and Barn, the more they described their perfect wedding and I couldn't help but get excited about photographing it. There was a steampunk theme with elements of Assasins Creed with Alice in Wonderland and a secret woodland feel. Aimee was determined to make most of the elements of the wedding herself or source other parts through talented friends and family.

Following Aimee's updates leading up to the wedding was fantastic, chocolate skulls and buying trees, flavoured tea and boxes of wine.

Barn and Aimee completed the legal part of the marriage on the Friday in a small ceremony and then spent all of Friday afternoon and evening preparing the hall. Aimee's friends made an amazing job of dressing and lighting the hall. It was beautiful.

The morning of the wedding was quite hectic, final preparations of food and outfits but once the groom and groomsmen left for the venue, a nice calm spread over the house. Aimee got ready with the help of her bridesmaids and there was a beautiful moment while her mum helped her into the dress.

It was a beautiful day once we got to the Hoveringham Village Hall in Nottingham, the sun was shining and it was reflected in everyone's happy faces.

The ceremony was beautifully presided over by a friend of Aimee and Barn. I found out later that it was the first wedding ceremony that he had conducted but I couldn't tell at all.

The rest of the day was wonderfully fun, full of laughter. The evening brought cappoera, fire performers, glow sticks and lots of drinking.

I was lucky to be part of such a unique and wonderful handmade day.

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!
