 Outside Venue for Your Family Photo Shoot  - May Hill

Why Should You Choose an Outside Venue for Your Family Photo Shoot

15 months ago

Studio photography will always have a place in the industry. Because it is a controlled environment it is protected from unpredictable elements such as the weather and sunlight, for some photographers this makes it a preferable option. However, for me I would much prefer to grab my camera and head to the great outdoors. So why should you head to an outside venue for your family photo shoot?

Family photographs in Spring, make the most of the season

18 months ago

Taking family photographs on a beautiful Spring day sounds idyllic but it’s not always that easy. Both children and the weather can be frustratingly indecisive. But however hard it can seem, the reality is though that your children will never be this age again, next Spring they will be a year older and this moment in time will be lost forever. In this post, I want to help you capture those moments even when your subjects or the environment prove to be difficult.

I first met Sarah nearly two years ago at a wedding fair, Sarah owns Sweet Time Candy Cart,[http://sarahjeffs19.wixsite.com/sweettime] a business she set up when she was just 17. This year Sarah celebrated a milestone birthday and I wanted to create some portraits for her to treasure this moment.

Pippi Longstocking in the studio

5 years ago

World book day, a celebration of books, reading and the joy that they bring. My daughter, like me loves to read. She enjoys many authors, rereads her favourites and enjoys visits to the book shop. One of her all time favourite books is Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren, a wonderful story of a girl, her monkey and horse and their many adventures. We have various copies of this book in the house but our favourite copy is a first edition illustrated by Lauren Child (we are big fans of Lauren's work!). Her illustrations really bring to life the wonderful adventures of Pippi and inspired a very special photo shoot a few years ago. It seems approriate to share these with you today on World Book Day.

Over the roof of Norway

For me, one of life's simple pleasures is enjoying a view. A seven hour train journey across Norway was a wonderful way to view this amazing country, its wonderful landscape filled with fjords, waterfalls and mountains. Travelling from Bergen to Oslo with the ever changing scenery was a great opportunity to indulge this simple pleasure. Although the day we travelled the rain fell, it did not spoil the view. Here is a selection of some of the images captured during our journey.

The simple things in life

5 years ago

The simple things really are the best. Days out with family, picnics in the woods, BBQs on the beach. This week I enjoyed as great day out with my two and of course the dog at a beach not too far from home. We chucked in a disposal BBQ, a packet of sausages, some bread rolls, bats and balls, bubbles and headed to the coast for a day of relaxing and enjoying each others company. Of course it is also a great chance to capture some memories ;)
