Staying in is the new going out!

Staying in is the new going out!

So you’ve just had a baby - congratulations! The chances are you are pretty damn tired and broken. Your body is trying to repair itself and your baby is trying to adjust to this new world that they’ve been thrown in to. The nights seem so long and the days are all a blur this time right here, it’s magical. It all feels like such a whirlwind of emotions but it also goes so fast and before you know it, your tiny little baby who you can’t ever imagine being out of your arms will be charging around the house, bossing you around and causing mass destruction.

These baby times are precious and when you feel tired, sore but absolutely besotted with this new life you’ve created - this is the most perfect time to capture the magical (and sometimes crazy) bubble you’re in. Now, I don’t expect you to pack half of your house and the kitchen sink up in a changing bag to bring yourselves all to me but instead I come to you. Your home, your sanctuary - where you and your baby feel relaxed and safe. I won’t force you into lots of unnatural poses but I’ll guide you to make the most of your home and give you beautiful memories of this precious time.

You don’t need to have a show home - your house is perfect however it looks because this is the place you’ve grown your baby on the inside and where it will flourish on the outside. You may redecorate, you may move home and when you look back on these images you’ll get that beautiful flutter in your tummy of the memories when your darling baby was tiny and of the home you adored.

I’m happy to travel anywhere so if you’d like an at home session - just pop me a message and I’ll get right back to you.

Fi and Pete on the beach!

Here’s another engagement session with these absolute beauties; Fi and Pete! They’re both so full of energy and happiness and they just radiate fun. We met at Exmouth to go on a little adventure, running, splashing and chatting all about life and weddings!
The fact that it was a little cloudy just made for the best light. I do love a cloudy day on the beach., you get such a lovely glow on the sea and gorgeous reflections.

I really do adore working with couples, to be able to capture love in such a pure form is truly something special. ❤

Fun in the outdoors!

I just HAVE to share this beautiful family’s photos. We met back in August on such a gorgeous summers day. The best thing about shooting outside is all of the different colours that are the result of each different season. August’s warmth is always reflected by all of the gorgeous yellow and orange tones and the Dubber family dressed to match the colours perfectly!
We went for a little walk around a local area that has lots of lovely little areas to stop and appreciate. There was plenty of time for snuggles, smiles and fun on this session. The happy little faces in these photos make me smile everytime I see them - I hope this amazing family makes you smile too ❤

Sneaky Peek - Sarah and Phil's beautiful Devon Wedding.

Ahhhh what an amazing day for these two! Here’s a sneaky peek of the most hilarious, fun and beautiful wedding. You’d be hard pushed to find a couple that are so in love, happy, relaxed and so awesomely fun! Sarah and Phil tied the knot in the absolutely stunning St Pauls Church in Tiverton then went on the The Devon Hotel for their reception which were both perfect locations. Their day consisted of so much joy and laughter, my cheeks still hurt from all of the giggling! Congratulations Mr and Mrs Game. Here’s a little glimpse; enjoy!

Caroline and Iain's beautiful Muddifords Wedding

Ahhh Caroline and Iain. Thinking about these two just makes me smile, they’re both such warm and loving individuals. It was just like working a friends wedding, they made us so involved. Their day was superbly organised (expecting nothing less with Caroline being a fantastic teacher) with sooo many fun touches to keep everyone busy and happy.
Caroline and Iain wed in a beautiful room at the venue and their service was just perfect. Once they had officially tied the knot there were lots of games to be played and fun to be had! They had an ice cream cart, lawn games, a pizza van and a super disco! There were constant smiles on all of the guests face, it was just so much fun! I really think that the photos can tell their story much better than I can so here they are!

Mel and Simon at Highbullen Hotel

For Mel and Simon, tying the knot was the perfect way to complete their beautiful little family. The calmest couple I have ever worked with, this wedding was just epic. With beautiful high ceilings, luxurious rooms and stunning grounds - Highbullen Hotel is just amaaaazing. These two had a wonderful relaxed day with a ridiculousy cool band and some proper dancing in the evening!
This wedding did not come without a big surprise… Simon’s now in-laws bought a classic car that he has always wanted and spent months restoring it just for their wedding gift. If that’s not the lovliest thing you’ve ever heard, I don’t know what is!

Claire and Tyson at Woolacombe!

Uhoh, I'm behind on my blog again so I'm kicking it off with this one! What can I say about these two?! I don't know where to start, they're both such brilliant people with such a passion for life and happiness. They snuck off from their little family holiday in Woolacombe to meet me for their engagement session and we are so glad we decided to do it there!

For those of you who don't know Woolacombe (North Devon)  you should. It's a majorly popular beach and it's easy to see why. The beautiful smooth sand, clear sea, rock pools and jellyfish make you feel like you're in another part of the world. The evening we met the sky was the most amazing colour, it was so moody yet calm and for once the beach was really quiet. We went for a stroll in the sand just chatting about their boys, life and all of their plans for their laid back wedding at West Town Farm.

Here are the photos from our fab time together:

Holly and Aaron wed!

A few weeks ago, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Holly and Aaron's beautiful wedding. Holly wins the award for the world's calmest bride - literally nothing fazed her! 
 They married officially in the gorgeous little church in the village of Sampford Peverell and we then went on to Calverleigh Village Hall which they transformed with such pretty, delicate decorations with the ultimate masterpiece being a Krispy Kreme donut wedding cake - yes that's right!! 
 A beautiful, super relaxed and amazingly well planned day made for such a beautiful wedding. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Cottrell!!

Mel and Matt's Couple Session

It was just so lovely meeting up with Matt and Mel at their very own little piece of paradise. Not only are they lucky enough to own this little area where they have camping trips, barbeques and chilled out sunny days but it's also the special place where Matt proposed (and Mel said yes!) 
 Two wonderful, in love and laid back people - their wedding will most definitely be something amazing.

Ross and Rose at Muddifords Court

Ross and Rose at Muddifords Court

This story started when I met Rose back in November 2015 over a coffee at Costa! We chatted all about their wedding, dresses, bridesmaids and all the details of the day. I knew that this day would be something special but couldn’t have been prepared for how wonderfully detailed and planned every last little thing was – along with possibly the coolest, calmest Bride and Groom ever!

It was plainly obvious throughout the day how much everyone loves this couple, the day was filled with so much pride and happiness and most of all fun.  Here are just a selection of some of this wonderful day.
