This is her 3rd consecutive yearly photo shoot and its amazing to see how much she’s grown and changed over the years. Hope you enjoy this mini autumn shoot with Blossom and her lovely mum & dad.

Engagement Photography, Kent. Paul & Rachel

Rachel & Paul were childhood sweethearts and will now be saying their ‘I do’s’ next April. I’m so honoured to be capturing their day for them.

Wedding Photography Gemma & Joe at Cooling Castle Barn, Rochester, KENT

I was so pleased to be asked to photograph the Wedding of Gemma & Joe. I’ve known Gemma for quite a while and we worked together in my ‘previous’ life so I felt so honoured that she’d trusted me to capture their Wedding day. The whole day took place at Cooling Castle Barn, Rochester. It began in the beautiful bridal party suite which was so stylish and perfect for getting ready for your Wedding Day. All the bridesmaids were so lovely & fun and obviously loved Gemma to bits ! The two barns at Cooling Castle are stunning and were the perfect place for Gemma & Joe to make their vows and become husband & wife. We had fun out in the field afterwards with the Castle Behind us it all felt very Grand ! Please enjoy the photos & I hope it captures the essence of their day.

5 Photo challenges that you can start today with your kiddies !

1 The Monthly photo challenge

I’ve been doing this one for a couple of years, each month I pull together a selection of photos for the month and put them together in a 9 aperture collage. Its been so fun to see whats happening that month as i’ve usually forgotten and then its so fun to look back on the past months and put them all together to see what a great year we’ve had so far and see all the adventures we’ve had as a family. I upload this onto instagram and use the #robertsonfamilycollage. Make sure you use a # that no one else has used so you can keep track of your family fun ! You can then go onto one of the printing app, like ‘chapbooks’ and use your hashtag to print your monthly grids.

2 Every month for the first year

I did this one really religiously with Jonah (2nd child!) and even took this Zebra rug everywhere with me ! If i knew we’d be away for his monthly anniversary then i’d take the rug with me !! but i’m, SO glad i did ! I love looking back at this and watching him grow. I have not however been so good at keeping track of Noah growing and have missed last months photo ! I’ll have to catch up this month !

3 The Weekly siblings

I’ve loved this one and seeing the changes. Noah was born end of last year and thats when I thought i’d start this challenge. It certainly doesn’t happen every week but I do it when I remember and I love the result so far ! I’m looking forward to printing all of these at the end of this year or making them into a photo book ! This one you could start whenever you like and just do it over the next year. Its so fun seeing how they change and how their relationships change over the year !

 

4 A day in the life

Every time i’ve attempted this one its failed miserably as i’ve forgotten but the aim is to take a photo of what you’re doing with you family every hour for a whole day and then collage them together to get a picture of your day ! Its so hard to remember and its amazing how quickly the hours go by ! I have once managed a ‘day in the life blog’ that you can see here – I have filmed another one but not yet got round to editing it however I love the first one and so glad i did it !!

Same place | different times

What it says on the tin ! I chose the kitchen, and when i remember I take a photo of whoever is in the kitchen to remember all the different things we do together and remind me of all the people who have spent time with us in the kitchen. This one i will definitely make into a book at some point as it really makes me smile.

I hope this inspires you to get your camera or camera phone out and start snapping today ! Please come & find me on my Photography instagram

Bexhill Family Beach Shoot, East Sussex

Seeing as its raining outside today and it looks pretty miserable I thought i’d look through some lovely summery pictures from last year ! I’ve photographed this family a couple of times so it was so lovely to see how the boys were growing ! They boys played happily on the beach whilst I tried to capture some special family moments.

Lauren & Dan -Hawthbush farm

So I have finally got around to blogging this AMAZING Wedding from last March !!! Lauren & Dan were married at Hawthbush Farm Barn, near Heathfield in East Sussex. It was so stunning, filled with colour, light & a lot of Love ! Lauren & Dan have two gorgeous children between them who gave the Wedding an extra beautiful touch, with a reading from Freddie.

They tied the knot in The Chantry, a gorgeous little chapel nearby. The ceremony was intimate & romantic and Lauren looked absolutely stunning in her lace Wedding dress. They then sped off as a family in the coolest little VW Camper van !

Everyone then arrived for the woodland ceremony. The woods had been decorated when loads of colourful lanterns and it was truly magical ! The ceremony was delivered by a good friend of the family and it was so special to be a part of. The guests then walked back to the barn where outdoor games & drinks were ready and it was a truly magical and unique event ! Please feast your eyes on this whimsical Wedding and hope you can appreciate the awesomeness of this day !

Baby lifestyle shoot in East Sussex

These were taken on the Delight UK Retreat run by Vicky Knights of Vicky Knights Photography where a group of inspiring Photographers got together to discuss business, eat great food, drink prosecco & take some photos ! Vicky had lined up some gorgeous models but this little poppet was an absolute dream ! She managed to look at every camera, give us adorable poses and smiled throughout !
