I first met Annie and Adam a few years back when they got in touch for a couples portrait shoot.  It was so lovely to hear from them again wanting to book a family shoot with their super cute new addition, Bodhi.

We met up at the picturesque River Gardens in Belper for a little wander.  Although we did a handful of ‘posed’ images, the focus was mainly on capturing natural moments.

I love having a job where I get to document these moments and providing families with little snapshots in time. When Bodhi is just tiny! For the three of them to look back on in decades to come <3

If you would like a natural-focused family photoshoot please get in touch.

  • Susan Wignell - Hi there becky, I am interested in a family outdoor photosh

Oooh I’ve got a treat for you all with this one! It’s only a wedding at the Eden Project in beautiful Cornwall!!

I was so SO excited when Sian and James first got in touch and told me what venue they planned to have their wedding at.  I’d never had the chance to go to the Eden Project, just admire from afar in beautiful photos online, I didn’t even know they hosted weddings, I had high hopes for the day.  It did not disappoint! We couldn’t have had better weather, clear blue skies all day! Yay!

I’d previously met up with Sian and James for their pre-wedding shoot at Wollaton Hall in Nottingham and really enjoyed their company.  They make such a lovely down to earth couple that make each other giggle loads which made my life pretty easy shooting their couples session!  It was lovely to meet a new face that has joined their family since our first shoot too, their beautiful little girl who stole lots of attention from guests on the day.

It was also super lovely to see some more familiar faces, my previous bride and groom Polly (friend of Sian’s and celebrant for the day!) and Gareth along with their new little one too!

Thank you so much Sian and James for choosing me as your wedding photographer, your day was an utter dream to shoot!

P.S How cute are Sian’s wedding shoes?! Toy Story editions by Irregular Choice!

Every now and then social media shows it’s positive side (I know I’m not the only one that sometimes wishes Facebook hadn’t been invented)!   Late last year I saw an instagram advert for these guys, I remember thinking they looked cool and so original on their promo video, but then I’d forgotten about it after sharing it with a friend, then last week, a Facebook ad, this time for an event they were doing locally!

So last night I caught these guys live at a free gig The Fishpond in the lovely Matlock Bath and they did not disappoint!  I decided to take my camera along too, it had been a little while since I did any live music photography, infact I think it was my first music gig in a long while, but what a brilliant one to be the first!

Old Time Sailors are a musical collective out of Europe with a wonderfully unique feel.  Here’s how they describe themselves…

“Old Time Sailors is a flashmob musical show designed to take the audience back in time through an unforgettable trip to the 19th century…Our crew is composed of 17 musicians playing fully unplugged to ensure the most authentic experience…witness an astounding show unmatched in this music genre. Everything will take place within our magnificent stage set, designed to give the audience the sensation of being inside a 19th century vessel.”

They started the night off downstairs in the bar area moving around amongst guests for a few low key songs in different spots before heading up to the venue’s function room for the rest of the night.

The name sums up their style really, their repertoire is based around the music of sailors from back in the day and you can expect traditional Irish/Celtic tunes, folk, and a bit of bluegrass, a perfect mix for a really fun and joyous feel to the gig.  They went down really well and I can’t wait to see them again some time!
