Wendy, Matt, Katy and Jack Family portrait

Wendy contacted me last year to do a family portrait before her little one's get any bigger! We've been waiting for some nice weather so during the Easter holidays when the sun came out we ventured into the New Forest to get some natural family shots. It was a great afternoon and after I found the location I was looking for we had some fun - the kids got in the trees (with a bit of help and approval from Dad) and ran about and generally laughed a lot! We managed to avoid the mud from the week before's rain too!

The kids loved Mum and Dad throwing them about - more, more, more, again, again!

The kids' laughs were so infectious - I was in fits!

I think Katy looks so grown up in this one - don't grow up too quickly Katy!

Thanks guys for a fab afternoon - so much fun!

Hanna and Rob's wedding 3rd April

Hanna and Rob had an amazing wedding - the weather had been horrendous all week, so we were keeping our fingers crossed for the big day, especially as they had a marquee in Hanna's parents' garden in Warsash. We managed to escape the worst of the rain in the day and worked the photos around the dry gaps in the weather! Despite this, everyone was in very high spirits and had a fabulous day. I was welcomed as one of the family and was even given my own place at a table in the marquee and fed the full three course meal and delicious it was too! Rob's family are Scottish, so there were kilts and pipers - the works, which was so much fun. Thank you to Hanna and Rob and family for making me feel at home.

Isn't Hanna beautiful? She was worried about having her photo taken, but as you can see she really needn't - she's stunning!

Hanna got a card from her sister wishing her luck on her big day - they are great sisters, very close!

One of Hanna's friends used to work in a bridal shop, so she popped in to do up "the dress" - she was a pro! Wish I could take her to every wedding (actually, wish I had her at my wedding!)

The moment Hanna's dad saw her for the first time in her dress. They have a great relationship and he was so proud!

At the alter they were the smiliest (is that a word?) couples I've ever seen - so happy and giggly - adorable!

I love the way Rob is looking at Hanna here - so much love!
