Capturing the everyday moments – Why it’s so important

Those of you that know and/or follow me, will know how much I’m a photography obsessive and feel really passionate about capturing moments in life. I’ve always carried my camera around with me, or snap things on my phone and have invested in a decent lens for my DSLR that I love to use, so take my personal photography to the next level. I’ve also for a few years now, loved to work with photographers and have made some serious friendships along the way too. One of those being with the insanely talented Anna Hardy (who I fan-girled for ages, before making her my friend…lucky her!).

I became aware of Anna’s work as a wedding photographer as she offered that “alternative” and reportage style we both liked and was good friend’s with our wedding photographers Emma Case and Pete. When I realised she lived ‘tup North too, I knew it was inevitable that we’d meet…

Family Holiday Photography – Wales

Recently we ventured out with our friends and their kids to North Wales for a relaxing beach holiday getaway. I went armed with my Canon DSLR and we had the best weather and the BEST light for our family holiday photography. I was beaming and couldn’t stop shooting – I took thousands of shots and have had so much fun looking through them and picking my favourites.

If you’ve followed this blog or my instagram, you’ll know I’m really into photography, particularly shooting people and particularly lifestyle photography (i.e.. capturing moments and nothing too posed). Now we have a child, it’s even more important to me to capture the memories that we’re making together. So no better opportunity than on our holiday to the beach…Continue reading

A Spring Family Photo Shoot with my DSLR

I absolutely love photography. I love looking at photos, I love taking photos, I love being in photos – I’ve always been this way.

I guess if I think back, it has probably got something to do with the fact that my dad always had a 35m camera and would bring it on holiday with us, or to the school plays or sports days. He’d always snap us having fun and being a family and we’d excitedly pop down to the local photo-shop to have them developed. The wait would be agonising, sometimes a couple of days before we could see the photos. But that moment when you flicked through the pack, remembering the shots you took, the good times that were had and laughing at the shots that didn’t come out quite right.

Then you’d pop the best ones into albums and place them on the bookshelf for a rainy day, when you’d enjoy reminiscing over the photographs again…loved those days!

We don’t really get that anticipation anymore with the way technology has progressed and there’s good and bad points to that (something I’ll keep for another post methinks)…but, I digress…Continue reading
