Love Shoot – The New Forest

couples Engagement lifestyle portraits

“What on earth is a Love Shoot?” my husband asked me… Well it’s when a couple want to have photos done of themselves, just the two of them, for no other reason other than they want to do it. Maybe they’re married and they have kids who generally take centre stage in everything, including photos. Or maybe they’re not married, but they’re tired of the same old selfie pose they have of the two of them together (you know the one, sitting in the car with big cheesy smiles). A Love Shoot is basically an engagement shoot without the responsibility of having to be engaged. It’s a day away from everything and spending time with just your love, and having beautiful shots of it all.

I hosted a Love Shoot giveaway on my Facebook page a couple months ago, to celebrate reaching 1000 likes (thank you all very much!). Vanessa was the winner. In addition to doing this shoot with me, her and Lee also dined at The Pig hotel courtesy of Ashley Hamilton Photography. So it was truly a day set up for just the two of them.

The Forest was in all it’s glory on this day. Starting at the beach we were greeted by donkeys and cows, basking in the early Autumn sunshine. We then headed into the one of my favourite parts of the Forest, near Brockenhurst. It was my pleasure meeting these two and sharing stories about our similarly aged boys. They are both so easy going, which makes my job as a photographer fun.

Southampton Wedding Photography :: Michelle and Gary
I had every intention of blogging two weddings before leaving the states. But some things can't be planned for, and our last two days at home were pretty packed full. Onto the wedding :: This celebration was so intimate and so beautiful. Michelle and Gary have a tight knit family and about 20 of them were there to be a part of their day. The setting was on Manasota Key at Gary's step father's house, and it as stunning. There was hardly anyone else on the key apart from this wedding party. I love how Michelle and Gary broke from tradition, and made the day about them and their commitment to each other. Surrounded by love and good vibrati ...

So I was in my home town last month. It's up in the beautiful pacific north west, and I try to take advantage of as much as I can while I'm there (we just don't have trees like this in Florida). I asked my little sister if she wanted to go for a walk with me. We had quite a few uncharacteristically sunny days while I was up there. It was so beautiful, but the days were so short. It felt like the sun had just managed to get up into the sky and it was setting again. Regardless I was spoiled. Here's my little sister. She has an adventurous spirit and is about to embark on another one. When I look at these photos, especially the close ...

New Forest Family Photography :: Hannah + Steve + Robyn
Is there anything better than Autumn in the forest? The colours around me right now are so beautiful, and when the sun is out, like it is today, it all glows this golden luminescent light. My only complaint are the short days. I really struggle with it. But a little photoshoot with a cute babe can usually lift my spirits. This is Hannah, Steve and little Robyn. Hannah is a mama friend of mine, and Robyn and Cav are very close in age. It's been invaluable having her input and perspective through this new season in our lives.
