Night Portraiture

A few weeks ago I decided I wanted to try some night portraiture, I've never done any before, not that I can remember anyway. So I enlisted the help of a model, Roxanne and we hit the streets of Nottingham on evening. I had lots of techinical issues and there was lots of fumbling around on my part, with tripods, which I'm not a great user of. On a shoot where I'm not the most confident I always say tha,t as long as I get one nice photo, that the shoot has been a success! Roxy was a star for putting up with the below zero temperatures and my fumbling and we came out with 5 nice photos so it was a super success in the end! :) 


Next Top Model Parties

A few weeks ago I was enlisted to take some behind the scenes photos at the launch of a collaboration between Jon Davies Photography and Party Entertainment & Supplies by Lisa. Their "Next Top Model Makeover" Parties are a great little event for young girls to be treated like the little stars that they are, with makeover by Lisa, a strut down the red carpet whilst being "papped" and ending in their very own solo and group photoshoots with Jon! What more could you want from a party?! Games and a disco? Oh yeah, they're included too! Brilliant! Get in touch with get in touch with either Jon or Lisa to book your "Next Top Model Makeover" Party today! Here's a few of the photos I took to whet your appetite...

Nottingham Silly Slingers

This Thursday just gone our babywearing group decided to don our babies and our silly red noses in aid of Comie Relief. We walked around Nottingham City Centre past some infamous Nottingham landmarks, the route was approximately two miles which is no mean feat with a toddler in tow! The weather was perfect for our little jaunt, not too hot, nor too cold! Of course when we eventually made it to the end we rewarded ourselves with a lovely lunch. Here's some photos from the day...

Getting ready...  

 And we're off...

Posing at the sky mirror...

Heading down to the Park Tunnel...

Giving our love to Robin Hood. with a silent cheer... the babies were asleep... ssshhh...

 Phew... we made it!

Our target for this walk was to raise £200, we smashed that and raised £257 instead which is brilliant! So thank you all for sponsoring us!

There are now plans for us to do a babywearing Race for Life in June so you've not seen the last of us!

1st outdoor ramble

Today my dad and I took Louie for his first outdoor walk at one of our local parks, The University Boating Lake. He absolutely loved it and walked sooo far! We couldn't let go of his hands as he was so distracted showing off and smiling at passers by! Unfortunately noone asked how old he was so I couldn't reply smuggly! Although I did hear someone say "WOW"! Hehe! I had 40 very proud mummy moments today!
He walked over his first bridge today too!! Eeeeeeeee! I know the smugness will be wiped off my face soon enough when he starts trying to walk into roads and ponds and won't listen when I tell him not to but it's such a nice feeling that he's now officially a toddler, although I am rather sad it's happened so fast too! I just had to share my moment (or 40) with you! :)

He walked from side of the frame to the other... not literally mind. And that was only part of the walk! I'm so proud!
