New Forest Engagement Photography :: Meg+Matt

Engagement portraits wedding

You wouldn’t know it by looking at these photos, but this shoot nearly got rained out. The day before is when we’d originally scheduled it, and it poured rain from dawn to dusk. We quickly scheduled it for the following day and managed to capture that sweet autumnal glow.

I love setting up for engagement shoots. Scouting unique locations is my specialty, and in this area there is no shortage of magnificent backdrops. A broken wall, or a glimmering tree line can completely transform a photograph from your usual portrait into vibrant scene.

Meg and Matt were good sports about trekking through forest and fields as well as hopping over a fence to get some of these shots.

Sidenote: Doesn’t Meg have the most radiant smile?

Engagement photography is a speciality of mine. See more of my work here.

Full Term
As of today I'm considered full term. 37 weeks, which means baby could potentially come at any time. I could, however, also wait another 5 weeks. I'm hoping it's not 5 more weeks, but I'm happy to let him/her stay in there as long as needed.

It's been relatively smooth, and so far we know that the Little Thorne (or the little wriggler, as Eliot call it) is healthy and happy. We decided to keep finding out the sex a surprise, and although right now I'm mo ...

Boudoir Photography Southampton :: Miss L
Boudoir photography Southampton. There is no shortage of gorgeous locations to shoot boudoir at. WOW. It is beyond bittersweet finishing up these images. Luckily I've done another shoot with this girl since and I have a whole new bunch of ones to go over. You can see a little preview of those here. I know there's been a lot of boudoir lately, it's kind of been the season for it which I am completely fine with. Again, the beautiful hair and makeup was done by Nicole Patterson. I can't wait to work with her again, she did such an awesome job. This is one of the best things a girl can do for herself, and it is such a fun day to pull together. ...

I’m In Love
I'm giddy. I hate the suspense of surprises. I always tell people that if you want to surprise me with something, don't tell me you're going to surprise me with something because it kills me. You can imagine the state I've been in this last week, knowing I dropped film off at the lab and would have to wait to see it. Luckily, I got to go on a trip and *try* to forget about it. This is straight out of the camera. And by camera, I mean my bright sunshiny yellow Holga. I'm in love. Lots more to come.
