Chelsea & Petes engagement shoot

Chelsea and Pete’s engagement shoot

Last weekend I went to Leicester to shoot my first engagement shoot of the year. When Chelsea emailed me to ask if they could include their dog Levi I knew they would be my kind of people.

We started off with some pictures in their garden with Levi. He is such a lovely dog and so soft all he wanted to do was roll over for a belly scratch and sit on my lap for a love.

I loved their garden filled with quirky little finds. They have part of a van in the garden which was left by the previous owner who used to keep a cow in the garden!!!! Yes, you heard that right, a cow. I couldn’t help but use the van as a back drop as it looks so dramatic with a tree ripping through it.

We then moved on to Burbage Common, we braved the mud and got stuck in. We had a little walk around and found some lovely woodland, Chelsea even had a little tree climb. If I hadn’t had two cameras strapped on me I would have totally been up the tree with her 🙂

I can not wait to shoot their wedding in February, they are a really laid back couple who are up for a laugh. If the engagement photos are anything to go by I just know we are going to get lots of fun pictures.

Portrait shoot with Maxwell

Maxwell’s Portrait shoot

You may remember Maxwell from the sneak peak I posted last week.

This portrait shoot was a little different for me as normally I only shoot outdoors. As Maxwell is only 8 months old an outdoor shoot was not an option.

As you can tell from the pictures that did not hold us back. He is such a happy smiley little boy and is a natural in front of the camera.

I am very jealous of his bedroom, he actually has clouds on his wall. Bedroom envy!!

I love taking pictures of children as they are so much fun and, as I am still a child at heart, I love that I get to join in with games and sing-alongs.

Fingers crossed this is the first of many portrait shoots I will get to do this year.
