Your Kent Wedding Magazine Editorial: Kent Wedding Photography

Good Morning,

I hope you all had a great weekend and have your sweets ready. Mine have stayed firmly hidden away otherwise there would be none left for the children this evening!

I was asked by Your Kent Wedding to supply an image for their photographers feature in the current issue of the magazine. The editorial they decided to use although short does sum up, for me, what the first dance is all about.

Have a great week and enjoy yourselves this evening.

Jasmine: West Sussex Children's Portrait Photography

Jasmine-West-Sussex-Children's-Portrait-PhotographyGood Morning,

I recently photographed a lovely portrait session as a surprise gift for Jasmine's Grandparents. It was fantastic madness!

I thought I would post this image as it looked like the session was calm and tranquil, if only you could all see what was happening around this image it would have made you a laugh, and I certainly had a great time.

Today and tomorrow I am seeing clients to chat about their weddings next year, so lots more lovely things to discuss.

Have a great weekend and have any of you started your Christmas shopping yet? I confess I have.

Good Morning,Something a little different today and may not be to everyone's taste but I like to experiment with my photography. Alexis came along with her Mum to have a portrait sitting and we had a great session using high, mid and low key styles. At the end of the session I wanted to try something a little different and my aim was to try and create an ethereal ghost like image and here it is.When I take a photograph, my aim is to try and capture what I have in my head at the time so I end up with a real photograph rather than the composite/montage digital art that seems to be popular now, which relies entirely on photoshop. This image was created in the studio with very little post production and is what Alexis saw on the back of my camera during the session.I had a very busy weekend photographing a wedding in the most glorious Autumn sunshine followed by some lovely chats with potential wedding clients and I am pleased to say I will now be photographing their special days next year. They have new and exciting things planned so I am getting excited already!Have a great week everyone.Claire

Grace: West Sussex Newborn Photography



Good Morning,

I recently photographed Grace's newborn session and it was so lovely to meet her having photographed her as a bump! She was about 2 1/2 weeks old in these images and I was really surprised by the strength that she had for one so young. I have chosen these images as she looks so unfazed by the whole experience and is just chillin'.

Have a great week everyone, the Autumn colours are really starting now so hopefully we will see some glorious hues soon.

Eva: West Sussex Children's Portrait Photography

Good Afternoon Folks,

Hope this blog post finds you all well. I recently photographed the lovely Eva, the story starts when I photographed Eva's Grandfather's wedding, then I photographed Eva's Mummy and Daddy's wedding. Little Eva was just a bump when I first photographed her and a month old when she had her first out of bump studio experience and here stood before me was this beautiful little girl who was just sitting up when she last came to me. Now she is walking and loves to talk to Daddy on the telephone; not quite sure Daddy understands it all. I translated a few of words and it was first, car, Ferrari; now don't say I didn't warn you Dad, you have 16 years to save up!


KJ Floral Designs: Sussex Commercial Photography







Good Morning,

I have been photographing the beautiful flowers of KJ Floral Designs and these will now be replacing the imagery that is currently on the website. Kirsty is an extremely talented florist and has produced flowers for UK and international royalty. She is now setting up her own business and will be specialising in wedding and event floristry. Kirsty is familiar with the many beautiful venues we have in the area and works alongside the fantastic wedding and event decorators Reveries. Now that's a match made in Heaven!

Have a great week; I am getting back to normal after the Master Photographers Association Awards 2011 for which I was very pleased to be awarded two Merits in Fine Art and Classical Portraiture. Cannot wait for next year now!

Ladies' Night at Dale Hill Hotel and Golf Club: Sussex Event Photography


Good Afternoon,

I recently attended a Ladies' Night at Dale Hill Hotel and Golf Club. It was really lovely to see so many lovely ladies in the most beautiful dresses and you were all a pleasure to photograph. It really reminds me of James Bond seeing a tuxedo and a glamorous dress. I also had some wonderful chats as well!

I enjoyed having a a few days off, especially over the weekend, which is a rarity in my industry and the weather was a real bonus too.

Enjoy the week everyone,

Claire
