Christine and Mark got in touch with us last year to ask us if we would take a few pictures of them with their Granddaughter, Elisabeth. Noting too elaborate, just something to give their Daughter as a picture for Christmas. Christine, Mark and Elisabeth came over to see us one morning and we took some nice pictures of the three of them.
Essex Family Pictures for Claire & Tim – As always a pleasure to spend the morning with Claire, Tim and their family. Every so often we update their family pictures for them. Our last visit was earlier last year a couple of weeks after their second son, Henry was born. Later on last year we went to see them again together with Tim’s side of the family. Timing was just right at our latest visit as Henry was on the verge of crawling. Moving around but not getting away! Claire and Tim wanted a selection of pictures of the boys on their own as well as some together. Enjoying our time spent with all of them we ended up with some nice pictures. Thank you Noah and Henry!
Last year Vicki and Sean wanted some Environmental Childrens Portraits in the woods with bluebells and their children, Owen and Phoebe. Unfortunately the Bluebells were over by the time when they wanted to go! This year would be different! Pod’s Wood was the place and we had fingers crossed for the weather! We couldn’t believe how fortunate we were on the day, it was dry, warm and sunny! The only blip was Sean could not make it but we went ahead anyway. Last time we saw Phoebe, she was crawling, now walking! Owen was quite happy showing his sister what to do! What an enjoyable time we had with a wonderful family, great pictures! Already looking forward to seeing them again soon.
It was lovely to see Rachel and Dom again for their Children and Family Portraits. We were their Photographers for their Wedding in 2009 at Woolston Manor Golf Club. They are now the proud Parents of twin girls, Sophia and Amelia. We had arranged to meet them early morning in the late Autumn at their house and go for a walk in Epping Forrest. It was a dry day albeit quite wet under foot! Finding a sheltered place where the girls could just wander about amongst the leaves was not too difficult as Rachel and Dom are surrounded by woods! After a few pictures of Sophia and Amelia on their own, we managed to achieve a few family pictures. On our return to Rachel and Dom’s house the children wanted to play in the garden. Fine by us! This ended an enjoyable morning!
We were pleased to hear from Martin and Jess again in September last year telling us their news. They now have a daughter, Evie, and have now moved to Essex. Martin and Jess wanted some pictures of Evie and some up-dated pictures of Charlie, their Son, we couldn’t believe it was in 2010 they were married at Layer Marney Tower and almost a couple of years ago when we last photographed Charlie! When we arrived at their house, Jess was out picking up Charlie from a birthday party, which gave us some time to take some pictures of Evie. By the time they arrived back we had done this. After Charlie had told us about how much fun he had at the birthday party, he was more than happy to go outside. Martin and Jess wanted a couple of family pictures taken as well which we were able to achieve in the garden. An enjoyable time spent with a lovely family.
Jane and Alan were married at Greenwoods Hotel, Ingatestone, in 2009 so it was nice to see them again, and meet their son, Harrison. They were down from Scotland visiting Jane’s Mum and wanted a few pictures of all of them. It was a beautiful morning and the garden proved to be a good spot for their pictures where we could have some control over the light but allow Harrison to be relaxed.
It was lovely to see Katy and Kevin again, we were their Wedding Photographers for their Wedding at Prested Hall, Feering in 2009. Katy and Kevin wanted some pictures of their children and we were more than happy to oblige. After spending a little time with Isla and Ethan before taking some portraits, we ended up with some nice images of both of them together with a nice family group picture. Although we do have a small studio we prefer visiting clients in their own homes which always seems far more relaxed for children’s or family portraits. In this case the best light was in the kitchen!
Children’s Portraits – We were delighted to be asked to photograph Lukas again by his Parents, Nina and Jon. This time as Lukas was now two and a half, Nina and Jon wanted a collection of photos printed in a book. After a while inside and a few pictures taken, outside we went. Mission accomplished!
It was lovely to see Gemma and Michael, whose Wedding we photographed in 2010, at Parklands, Quendon Hall. With Gemma expecting another baby very soon , Gemma and Michael wanted a few pictures with their son Ethan before the new arrival. An enjoyable time and mission accomplished!
