2014's Favourite Places

Tied up with these little lot lies a 2015 resolution... To make way way more time for landscapes. To get more creative with them. I'm even thinking about some selling... Getting creative with new editing gadgets (thank you Father Christmas) and experimenting with natural print mediums and talking to local businesses about displays...  

























2014's Favourite Faces

In no particular order... With no real thought beyond "I remember this made me happy"... Here are my favourite faces of 2014. The year I started a business. The year I started off as a photography enthusiast with a disproportionately expensive camera and finish calling myself a "photographer". There I said it; I'm a photographer. And I only feel slightly silly saying it now.

So here are the faces I was so proud and happy to capture. Each one I cared about doing justice. Each one I doubted. Each one I spent a disproportionate amount of time scrutinising. And each one makes me excited about where my images will be this time next year.

Here's to 2014 and it's faces and what it and they are setting me up for for 2015... Happy New Year!

Baby Mathilda at 10 Months...

Here she is! I last saw her at 10 days old and I can't tell you how much it means to have babies come back and see how they grow up! Such a special time and I can not stress how quickly it goes or how much these parents will high-five themselves for having these to look back on... So special...

What a wonderful job you've done these past 10 months Family Nice... She's perfect.

Baby Ralph 4 Month Old Session...

Here he is! Baby Ralph! Being snapped at 4 months old... Often a tricky age because there's just no telling where they'll be developmentally which dictates the props and the shots. And once we're in to shooting, snapping that shutter is a little wild and random trying to get those minuscule moments of eye contact or (dare we dream of it?) smiles!

Anyway here's my highlights, all worked out pretty lush in the end...

Running In to Christmas...

I've decided what my beef is with Christmas. My beef is I prefer the run up. I expect the day to top the run up but in my book it never does. For me the solid gold festive favourite moments are found in all the little rituals that make up the run up. And top of the list is the day we get the tree. Despite the fact we have a mild domestic amongst aisles of trees at the garden centre every single year, I love it. I  love shopping for a few special baubles for that year. I love switching the Crimbo compilations on for the first time and untangling the twinkly lights with a glass of wine. Sitting back and watching telly with just the tree lights on. I love looking at my social calendar and knowing I've made time for good friends. I love sitting down for cheese and bread with my Mum's homemade pickled onions for lunch. I love my Uncle Jim's open house and how he makes mince pies to my Nan's recipe and I can flick through his photography books  in his garage whilst I scoff them.

Solid gold favourites. 

All of them. 

And working out that the build is my favourite has some indirect way of measuring expectations and making me look for the big day even more! Figure that one out?!

So here we... Noisily and candidly running up and in to Christmas...
