Understated pre-wedding photography Yorkshire

It was great to kick off the year for wedding photography with a couple pre-wedding shoot at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.   We always love to visit the Yorkshire Sculpture Park as they do change some of their exhibition pieces regularly, and it’s so big that every time we go we find a new spot, a different landscape, a fresh piece of art, and that’s pretty cool.  We met with Rachel and Dom over the weekend for the first time, they came up form their home town in London.  Their timing was perfect as despite all of the snow and cold weather it was sunny and actually quite a lot warmer than it has been for a while.

Rachel and Dom admitted to us that they were a bit nervous about having their photographs taken, and this is very natural and 99% of our couples feel this way, even us!  So we can totally sympathise and relate to how they do feel.  And this is why pre-wedding shoots are so important because you get to combat those camera nerves before the wedding, and realise that it’s actually not all that bad and you quite enjoy having your picture taken after all!

When planning a pre-wedding shoot with our couples we always let them suggest the location; preferably a place they like to visit on a regular basis, a place that holds fond memories, a familiar place, the venue where they are soon to be married.  It’s important to us that our couples feel at ease as much as possible, and familiar surroundings can really help do this.  We also explain to them that it’s not about posing for the camera but rather about them getting to know how we work, us getting to know you both a bit better, talking about the wedding plans and other interests, grabbing coffee, going for a walk, and taking photographs of you both whilst you are chatting, laughing and walking together.  We can guarantee that after the first 10 minutes you will be 110% comfortable with our style and approach and you will also enjoy it, a lot!

We would describe our photographic style as non-intrusive, raw, understated and real, and our couples also agree.  By having this style and approach to wedding photography (in life and work) it allows us to capture those un-guarded real moments between two people in love.  We think we have a pretty cool job!

Just take a look below at how Rachel and Dom’s pre-wedding session turned out, do they look nervous or uncomfortable to you?  Don’t they look amazing?!  We can just picture their wedding photos now and how incredible they are both going to look!

Newborn Photographer Sheffield

Newborn photography is precious, it freezes that moment caught in time of your little ones forever.  Most of my newborn photography is photographed indoors and I do come out to my client’s homes.

There is nothing more beautiful than a newborn baby and to be able to create artistic imagery of your precious one to cherish forever is very special.  During my sessions it’s important for me that the baby feels warm and comfortable and that the parents are also calm and relaxed.  I do give some advice and tips based around how to get the most out of baby and the session before I arrive.

Get in-touch to find out more about my newborn package, bump + baby package, albums and advice to follow before the bump + newborn sessions.

I also photograph baby-bumps/maternity too.

Sheffield Family Photographer

I really love being Sheffield family photographer as much as a Sheffield wedding photographer.  Spending time with a family in their natural habitat, whilst capturing their normal routine and ways on camera (that make up those later cherished moments) is something a bit special and precious.  Over the weekend I got to spend some time with my good friend Kelly Hood (from Boho Weddings and a Boho Life), Nick and their adorable Son Dexter.  I arrived just in-time for bath-time, and honestly I think Kelly and Nick had just as much fun as Dexter, and even I did just by being there.  It’s really evident that both Kelly and Nick are absolute naturals at parenting and that they really enjoy playing the part too.  Dexter is a really happy chappy and it was really lovely to be in their presence and capture their family life on film, they are such a beautiful family.

Newborn baby Photography

I never knew I could love so much, until the day I felt your touch.

I softly kissed your tiny cheek, and from under your lashes I saw you peek.

Your beautiful eyes so small and blue, my sweet little baby just brand new.

I cannot wait to watch you grow, from your little head to your tiny toes.

My daughter, my love, my little joy, my little angel, my baby doll.

I promise to love you with all my heart, I’m here for you from the very start.

Family photographer in Sheffield

As well as a Sheffield wedding photographer I am a family photographer in Sheffield.  Family portraiture for me is about capturing the real essence of a family on film; capturing who they are, surrounded by the ones they love in familiar surroundings.  It always works well when photographing children to not be confined to a small space, and to allow them to play freely and naturally, because when they are enjoying themselves then you will get lots of great photos of them smiling and laughing without the need to pose them or rush them.  It’s that simple, and I love hanging out with families, it’s always a spontaneous and fun adventure.  This beautiful family is that of successful hair salon owner Claire Flack of Wigs and Warpaint in Sheffield, her husband Paul, daughter Bobbi, Boston terrier, French Bulldog, and black cat!

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

The Yorkshire Sculpture Park is an open-air gallery in Yorkshire, England, showing work by British and international artists, including Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.  The park’s collection of works by Moore is one of the largest open-air displays of his bronzes in Europe.  The park occupies the parkland of Bretton Hall near the village of West Bretton in Wakefield District, and straddles the border of West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire.  So when Kathryn and Myron expressed their love of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and how meaningful it would be to have their pre-wedding shoot here, we were over-joyed.  We talked art, drank coffee, explored the park in the glorious sunshine, and took some pretty cool pictures.  Kathryn and Myron are having a winter wedding here in the U.K, both have lived over in the States and Myron currently resides in New York.  We are very excited for their future together and we hope to see them at the other side of the pond one day.

Natural Family Life-Style Portraits

As well as weddings I love photographing families (as a family portrait photographer) in their natural surroundings.  I love the spontaneity of children and the magic that happens when families are together.  To be able to capture these cherished moments on film is such an honour and joy.
