New Forest Family Photography

babies/kids family portraits

I was in no way ready for this summer to end. I mean it was lovely, and it was full, and I don’t feel like we missed out on anything. I just wasn’t ready for it to be over. My son is the perfect age right now, and it was so fun taking him exploring, throwing rocks, going sailing, and seeing new places. I also completed 2 triathlons this summer, an olympic distance and a sprint. Something I enjoyed a lot more than I thought I was going to. I’m making plans for next spring/summer and setting goals to help me improve during the cold (dark) months.

But that’s just it. I really struggle with the dark months. More than the rainy weather, the short days bring me down. It cuts into our outside playtime. It closes that window for photographing outside. I count down until the days start to get longer again, and I celebrate on December 21st.

Along with being a full summer, it was also awash with lots of family sessions here in the forest. I’ve been so busy wrapping up summer I haven’t had time to blog them all individually. So I thought I would share some favourites in one post. Summertime in the New Forest is nothing short of magical, and photographing families is one of my favourite things.

This gorgeous place has the best natural backdrop. Each of these shoots was basically a relaxed day out. Little ones are so curious, so I can follow them around and get great candid shots. Occasionally they get a bit shy and want a cuddle, which also makes for beautiful photos.

Autumn is beautiful in the forest as well. Warm scarves, cute boots, red and orange leaves, and a little chill in the air. Get in touch to book your New Forest family photography session before Christmas.

Starting Again
With a fresh look, and a new life! Well, not so much a new life, but a lot is changing at the moment. Firstly, we are no longer living in China. We found out in February that we are expecting a little babe in late October, so we made some plans to get ourselves a bit more settled. Although we loved our life in China and our Xiamen family that live there, we didn't see ourselves having a baby there. We've always wanted to be closer to family, and after almost 9 years together we decided it's time to make that transition and move to the UK. This also means starting again with my business. It all feels a bit daunting. An unfamiliar place, wit ...

Impossible
This past weekend I did an engagement shoot with this lovely couple. I brought along a special treat, a pack of Impossible Film. I hardly ever use the polaroid camera, because the film for it is so expensive. But thanks to a sweet friend who gifted me a pack of film I was able to use it for this shoot. I love the look of these images and all the imperfections.

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Kerry & Jonas
I met Kerry the first night I arrived in China, after a long Chinese dinner and a ride on the back of a motorbike, through the busy streets of Fuyang, with a South African guy I had met just a few hours previously. (In case you think that's not the best decision I've ever made, I can promise you that it's not the worst.) She's been an easy person to keep up with, because every once in a while, we find ourselves in the same corner of the world again. This time, it was in London, and she had just gotten engaged to Jonas. She's American, he's German and they have such an amazing outlook on life, and this world. Eliot and I had an awesome day ...
