Photography studio is open for business…

Babies head is between parents head laying down facing the camera, the parents are kissing his cheeks either side.

and I have a new website for my family photography.

One of the good things to come out of this strange and worrying time is that I have had time to focus on one of my websites and with fantastic IT support from Tony Merryfield I have created a new site for The Family Photographer. Please take a look if you want to book a shoot or have any questions about Covid 19 (you will see info on each page of the website).

John Waterhouse inspired portraits

I remember standing and staring in awe at the ‘The Lady of Shalott’ when I saw it years ago in a London gallery. It’s a picture I had on my wall when I gave birth to my daughter at home, it’s one of those pictures which has stayed with me through my life. I have always loved the softness of the colours the mystery and the femininity shown in paintings by John Waterhouse. Here are some recent portrait images I took at my studio which were definitely inspired by his beautiful art.

A red haired teenage girl wearing a white dress with red berries in her hair. Looking at the camera holding a small branch with more red berries and green leaves. The image is dark and moody but the red of her hair and the berries make the image pop.
A young woman dressed in white with bare arms holding a thin branch which is spiky and rambling. The woman has long blonde wavy hair which falls to her waist. On her head she has two small antlers, the background is dark and the colours are dark and light with the gold of her blonde hair and white dress in contrast to the darkness of the rest of the image.
A teenage girl with long auburn hair has her arms gently folded and is looking seriously at the camera. She is wearing a dark green velvet jacket which has red and green patterned strips on it. In her hair she has red berries almost like a crown. Her expression is one of innocence and at the same time strength. Holding herself tall she appears to have a quiet confidence.
A young woman is looking off to the side, she is slim and wears a white lacy dress. Her hair is long down to her waist and is loose blonde hair.

Children’s fine art portraits

I have always loved low light photography and am currently working on a series of fine art portraiture, experimenting with props and clothing. If you would like to discuss a shoot please contact me on 01206 511986.
