To say I'm fortunate in the work that I do is an understatement; I have the best job I could think of!
I get to connect with new people every time I go on a new shoot, I get to share in their lives for a day, sometimes longer. I get to see babies grow into toddlers, and toddlers into children. I'm lucky enough to see couples get engaged, and then say 'I do'.
This is the second of three shoots I will do with Gina, Daryl and their seriously cute daughter, Lana. We all met at Compton Acres, where Gina and Daryl were married a few years ago, and also happens to be one of my favourite places to visit in Bournemouth - I could get lost in their gardens for hours.
So we had an afternoon celebrating their wedding anniversary and Lana's 1st birthday (officially on the 23rd September), wandering around the gardens, sharing in some giggles and some more grizzly faces. She definitely knows how to work the camera, so I'm expecting big things for her second birthday next year. She's not so keen on the stepping stones in the Japanese gardens, however. You can see her reaction in the photo highlights below.
It was all rounded off with an awesome slice of chocolate cake and tea/glass of red wine for the happy couple in the cafe afterwards. All in all, an ace day out!
If you would like to book me for a fun family shoot, get in touch, I'd love to hear from you.
Until next time,
