Family Photos for Anne & Steve

Family Photos for Anne & Steve

Every so often we meet up again with our clients who we have worked with previously usually for family photos and we love it!  Anne and Steve were married at Crabbs Barn Kelvedon in 2012. We photographed their daughter, Isla, in 2014 and now some updated pictures were required as they now have a new daughter, Amy. Time and place arranged we arrived whilst Amy was still having a nap. No problems at all, in fact it was nice to have a time to catch up with Anne, Steve and Isla. Once Amy had woken up and had got used to having us around we got on with some pictures. Taking our time without pressure worked well and we ended up achieving some nice pictures.

Family Portraits

We photographed the Wedding of Paul and Sarah in 2008 at The Fennes Estate, Bocking, and they asked us recently to photograph the Christening of their daughter, Abigail.  Unfortunately, on the day we were already booked for Wedding Photography but we suggested a family portrait session the following day to mark the occasion.  It was a glorious morning when we arrived so we used the shade of the trees in the garden for some family pictures.  Abigail was a star, enjoying herself and allowing us to get some lovely images.Family Portrait - Colchester

Real Photography?

Many Professional photographers advance their skills by attending seminars and workshops where a skilled tutor will pose and light a ‘Bride’  (very rarely a groom also!) so the delegates can learn new skills or hone old ones.  Sadly, some of the delegates use pictures they have taken as examples of their own work or ‘forget’ to say they were created on a workshop, so always ask your Photographer to show you completed real weddings, not just a few great shots!!

We are part of a committee that organises seminars and workshops in the local area on behalf of  The MPA and The BIPP so if you are interested in in advancing your professional photographic skills do get in touch.

It was nice to meet up again with Sarah and Rob for some family portraits.  We photographed their Wedding at Parklands, Quendon Hall, in 2008.Family portrait in Colchesterlands, Quendon Hall, in 2008.


Secret Bunker visit

Today I had the pleasure of the company of fellow professional photographers Kevin Pengelly & David Court on a visit to the Secret Nuclear Bunker

at Kelvedon Hatch, followed by a visit to Greenstead church which was altogether more beautiful!


Family Portraits

It was a great pleasure to meet Sarah and Dan and their family to create some fun and relaxed portraits.  It is almost six years since we photographed Sarah and Dan’s Wedding at Leez Priory.  We have great satisfaction when past clients ask us to work for them again in the future.  As the weather was too windy, we did some pictures inside instead of going to the beach as we planned, hopefully later in the year we can do that.

Family Photographs

Our first job of the New Year was a family portrait session for Leah and Jason, whose Wedding we photographed at Layer Marney Tower in 2007.  It was a pleasure meeting again family members as well as the new members of the family.
