Autumnal Love on The Edge - Joanne & Dave's E-Shoot

Joanne and Dave truly are the perfect fit, just as the engagement ring implies! They had each other in stitches for most of the shoot up at Alderley Edge!  

Needless to say it was raining when we arrived at The Edge, so we went and had a cup of tea and a chat about their wedding plans in the little café hoping the rain would subside. After a while it was still drizzling but we decided to chance it. Jo was really nervous about having her picture taken and I didn't want to prolong her agony any longer! Once I'd found a couple of nice spots and had done a few test shots... out came the sun!! Perfect timing!

Jo and Dave were just amazing and although Jo had been nervous  to begin with she seemed to relax and enjoy it especially as Dave kept making her laugh and almost forget I was even there!

They're getting married in December and I'm so excited to be capturing their big day! Watch this space for those pictures too!

Beautiful Baby Bump

A couple of months ago I had the huge privilege of photographing my very first baby bump! I met Gemma Holmes through Bryony Pearce at her book launch. Gemma was heavily pregnant with her and Edward's third child at the time, so we quickly scheduled in a shoot just two weeks before she was due to give birth to gorgeous baby Ewan!

Gemma & Ed also have two beautiful girls, Harriet and Emily who were so excited to meet their new baby brother. Gemma looked completely stunning and glowed throughout the shoot and the girls did an amazing job of posing, getting paint everywhere and keeping everyone entertained! Also a big thank you to Ed who provided some very yummy Eggs Benedict for breakfast and who became my photography assistant for the morning!

Thank you for letting me share such precious photos and congratulations on the arrival of your beautiful baby boy!
