The beginning of this year saw the start of our all new Cherubs Baby Club, in that instead of doing all white studio shoots, we now do three completely different sessions, the last shoot on location. This is brilliant because it means that each shoot is completely different, and it’s great fun for the babies too.
We recently did a session at Savill Gardens, Virginia Waters with this cute little tot. She had a fantastic time exploring all the little nooks and crannies and proved to be a very good model despite the wet weather!
At the end of all three shoots you get a leather tri-folder containing one image from each session. This family went for the black folder which looks great with their images. We are also using the photographs for a 9 image montage to display at our studio. Her shoots were spaced out perfectly and she had some brilliant outfits too!
We recently advertised for some pregnancy models for our new website, and received a really positive response.
A lot of mums-to-be are a bit wary about pregnancy shoots, focusing on unsightly stretch marks and all the little bits they don’t like, but we firmly believe that pregnancy can be one of the most beautiful times for a woman’s body. With a combination of flattering lighting and poses we can take these stunning shots with minimal need for airbrushing (but a little bit always helps!). We enhance each of our photos to bring out the best in them and make each image really special.
For both our models, this was their second pregnancy, and the shoot was something they were really looking forward to as they weren’t planning on having any more kids. It provides a cherished memory of what their body was like for that period of time.
One of our models also bought their two year old along, which was brilliant as it added a different element to the shoot and created some really touching moments!
Typically we photograph our bride and groom photo section at the reception, however we are never ones to miss an opportunity! At a recent wedding in Oxford, we took the chance to go off the beaten track and do some photographs at the grooms childhood farmhouse between the church and reception.
The groom was getting ready in the morning at the farmhouse and as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be the perfect choice. It is completely tucked away down a track really only suitable for 4x4s, but as soon as I saw it in the morning I knew that it would make for some amazing photos!
The farmhouse was beautiful – there was possibly TOO many good spots to do photos. We had time to get a really great variety of shots, and here are a few of my favourites.
