I am in love.....

Oh, how I love my print boxes, imported all the way from the US. I simply love wrapping up my clients images in their special boxes and sending them on their to make someones day when they arrive on the doormat x

Wedding Photography Slideshow for my friends

I'm lucky to be attending the wedding of two of my friends in Italy this summer, as guest and photographer (yey!). They wanted to see some of my recent wedding work so I put my *very* new found iMovie skills to use and made the following to show them. There's just something so lovely about photographs accompanied by a heartstring-tugging soundtrack...a match made in heaven!

I can't wait for June and to capture some beautiful memories for them in Malcesine!

Valentine Photography Vouchers - Calling all new Dads!

Valentines I have mixed feelings about this one. It's typically a little bit hit and miss - one year you'll be utterly spoilt if hubby has been hit by a lightning bolt of inspiration, and then the next year you'll be lucky to see a card at all. Or at least this is how it works in my house (my mother-in-law will confirm if you speak to her).

Now, bring into the mix a new baby at home and I'm thinking V-Day might be quite far down the list of priorities for many new families.

Flowers are nice, but are gone and forgotten in a week or so. equally lovely gesture, but then most new mums are trying to shift any left over baby weight and don't need temptation put in their path! choice...but breast feeding may hamper the enjoyment somewhat.

So...what to do....

....I think the perfect answer lies in one of my gift vouchers, and is only for those wanting to earn SERIOUS brownie points.
Every new Mum would love to receive a gift of photography so they can have this special and fleeting time as a brand new family captured forever.

The gift vouchers come beautifully packaged and are really special to open. I will do my very best to fulfil any orders received up to and including the 9th Feb. For any really late orders, I can email a gift letter through.

Now, because posts are dull without photos, here's one from a session with my oldest friend Sophie and her newest addition with all kind of gorgeousness going on. With love, Lucy x

Baby Photography in Hersham: Preview

I think January is typically a write off for natural light photographers...short days and bad weather are not the easiest elements to work with. Oh, how I love my 5d Mark II and fast makes for happy days even when it's rubbish outside!
We had a reasonable amount of light for last weekends shoot with little J and his parents in Hersham. They were not keen on formal posed family shots, and luckily neither am I! I hope that my style suited them down to the ground :)

Lucy & Bruce, it was great to meet you and I know that you'll be looking forward to seeing some of your shots - enjoy. With love, Lucy xx

Baby Photography in Brockley: Preview

Some of the images from last weekend's shoot in Brockley with some friends of friends and their beautiful little 3 month old daughter. Such a funny age because things change so quickly day to day and you never know what you're going to get - little E was enjoying testing her parents by completely mixing up her routine. Hope you enjoy your preview guys and I will be in touch once your gallery is ready to view. Lucy x

Newborn Baby Photography in Guildford: Preview

Last week I started the New Year off with a week's holiday from the day job and fitted in a session with this gorgeous little 10-day old near Guildford. It was a very dark and rainy day and I was a little concerned about the light, but as soon as I saw Rachel's french doors I knew we'd be able to get some great shots. I can't believe how alert she was at just 10 days old, no amount of coaxing was going to get this little one into a deep slumber. Rachel, great to meet you last week....I hope you and your family enjoy your preview! x

Newborn Photography in Croydon: Preview

Oh, did we have fun on this shoot....I got to use lots of my little knitted hats and flowers and I was a very happy bunny! Jason and Kate are a very chilled out couple and this definitely rubbed off on their beautiful little 5 week old daughter who gave us lots of content sleepy shots. Very hard to pick just a few to blog.... Hope you enjoy these initial images! Lucy x

Amy & Oli's Beautiful Wedding

This is a post from the last wedding of 2010 which I shot with Gary of See Me Photography at Alexander House Hotel and spa in West Sussex. It was an absolutely *freezing* day, and I really felt for the Amy and her bridesmaids in their dresses - they looked beautiful though, so it was well worth it!

What a year 2010 has been...!

It being New Year's Day and all, I'm feeling very reminiscent and am considering what an amazing year 2010 has been for my photography business - it really has grown behind my wildest dreams. I feel so lucky to have such wonderful clients and to have met so many amazing new little personalities this year through my work.

Being asked to capture such a special and fleeting time is such an honour, and I really relish every shoot - I can't wait to see what 2011 brings as I have big plans in store.

Thank you to my friends and family for your ongoing love and support of my passion.....and especially to my wonderful husband Tim, who is my biggest supporter and constantly pushes me to realise my dreams xxxx
