Gorgeous Mum-To-Be

Last weekend Donna had her mum-to-be photoshoot with Mirror Imaging as she's expecting twin boys this coming April. After being treated to a makeover with Pretty Flamingo, we photographed her with a variety of looks and backgrounds so the images feel totally different: some bright and happy, some warm and fluffy and some sexy, but all celebrating her gorgeous bump. I have to say, she looks amazing pregnant with a gorgeous figure and also a natural radiance, which I think shines through in the images. It was a really relaxed and happy photoshoot and I especially love the first image capturing genuine laughter, such a wonderful moment. I hope Donna loves the images and her fiance loves his Christmas present (hence the Christmas bow!)

Ali & Brooke

I was delighted to welcome Alison and Alan, whose wedding I photographed back in 2009, and their gorgeous new addition Brooke, for a Mum & Baby shoot at the weekend. Alison was treated to a makeup session with Pretty Flamingo, before mum and baby posed for the camera, first with fluffy cream rugs and then a dramatic black backdrop and electric blue dress for Ali, reminiscent of Madonna & Child. I loved their LOVE sign too, which worked beautifully. Brooke was incredibly curious about the studio lights, but in the end all that hard work modelling made for a very tired little baby, and she fell asleep, which allowed us to take some wonderful, peaceful photographs.

Mum & Baby!

With our new Smiley Faces Photoshoots proving popular, our Mum & Baby and Just Baby Photoshoots are the option if you want more photographs to choose from and little bit of pampering – we spend a lot longer, with changes of clothes and backgrounds to create a set of photographs unique to every family. Prue and Allegra were treated to a Mum & Baby photoshoot as an early Christmas present, with mum having her makeup done first by Susan at Pretty Flamingo whilst Allegra was busy modelling away like a natural. Allegra is such an expressive little girl and Prue looks just stunning. And thanks to Aunty Charlotte for tirelessly entertaining Allegra too, good job! I hope the whole family loves the first 15 images from yesterday...

Sugar and Spice...

Yesterday I was in the studio with a very beautiful little girl holding the first of many Mirror Imaging Portrait Days. Stunning photographs taken in 30 minute appointments, for just £25! Dates to be announced in time for Christmas. She looked pretty in pink and then just lovely in spots and stripes. I think crayoning on the studio floor was a bit hit! Thanks to her mum, hope you love the photographs...

Emily & Simon

Emily and Simon were married on Saturday 11th September at The Carriage Hall in Plumtree. Their gorgeous colour scheme of blue and yellow, with some lovely, handmade personal touches to the wedding made for some beautiful images – especially as the sun defied all odds and shone all day with a stunning blue sky – except for a heavy rain shower right in the middle of their couple photos! This meant brollies (thank you Jo at Dennison Cars) and momentarily holding up traffic to have their photographs under the cover of trees, which turned out to be a special place for Emily and Simon, being their bike route together. I loved the sunflower bouquets, the beautiful vintage car driven by Jo, Susan’s (at Pretty Flamingo) makeup for Emily and Davina, the vibrant blue of the bridesmaid dresses, and that gorgeous cheese cake. To Emily and Simon: I hope you love the photos and have an amazing honeymoon in South Africa and Mauritius. See you soon!
