I love my Studio but sometimes its good to get outdoors ….to somewhere new ….to stretch my creative wings and try something new and this is what happened a couple of weeks ago . I wanted to do some training for Kerry , my lovely assistant and to offer a great day for Lisa , a photography friend …..so we planned a day in the woods …Kerry made an amazing Tulle skirt and we found a brilliant model – Faye – to come and be our muse for the day
We were invited to use an amazing house and grounds as a base – Windy Gap in Ainsdale – a little piece of heaven – head to the website to have a look !
Days like this are essential for me , I’m always learning something , trying new ideas that I take back to my Clients. I know that Prom season is here and wanted to try some funky fashion , for older teenagers who may want something different for their Prom photo! Its a great excuse to get the dress out again over the summer and get some great photographs. This would also be brilliant if you wanted an Engagement session or Wedding photoshoot – again …any excuse to get the dress on just one more time!
So we headed to the woods …with smoke grenades ( my new obsession!) lots of accessories and a ton of energy . I guided Kerry in the use of natural light and getting great composition and angles in her images. She is currently training to be a Wedding Photographer so this was brilliant practice. We worked on getting lots of variety in a session , styling , location scouting …. its a good job we ad plenty of cake and sweeties to keep us going !
These are the images I’ve edited , again , I have been trying out some new styles , dark and moody black and whites are now a favourite of mine!
If you feel that you would love to book a very bespoke session for yourself … or your teens , whether its in their Prom dress or you want to use some of our amazing accessories then just e mail on firstname.lastname@example.org and lets see what we can do for you
