Nottingham Lifestyle Portrait Photography

I don’t post photographs of our children very often, as I’m sure you’d rather not come to our blog and see it as an extension of our family photo album.  During the infancy of our photography business we’d photograph our children probably nearly everyday, they’d grown used to the camera being pointed at them and on a few occasions our camera bag even managed to tip little Ed up in his buggy (no damage done, I promise).  But as we’ve been increasing busy these past months it suddenly dawned that we’d been so engrossed in capturing other people’s lifestyle’s and wedding’s we needed to update our own.

So here’s a few of our’s, capturing our children just as we know them, thoughtful and in Ed’s case sometimes just a little bit cheeky. Not forgetting that these little guys make our world go round.

…. oh want to know my answer ….. ‘The best thing about being married is,  I look forward to sharing my twilight years with a warm, loving husband, sitting together on a seafront bench wrapped in our car blanket,  watching the sun come down thinking of the amazing journey we’ve had together.’

A Prestwold Hall Engagement

This is how I love to spend my Sunday afternoon’s, sitting in the sunshine with a fabulous landscape view in front of me and the glory of one of the Midlands’ most premier stately homes behind me … Prestwold Hall.  To share all this with me were Sally & Danny, unfortunately unable to supply some Pimms we still managed to enjoy lots of wedding chat and then take some images around the grounds for their engagement photo shoot.


It really was a glorious day, we were breath taken with the quietness of it all, not even a ‘baaa’ from the sheep, the three of us soaked up the tranquility of it all.


Really excited to see you again Sally & Danny!!



I love this shot below, I could feel they were taking the whole thing in, supping up what this time meant, and what was to be here.

I DO Like A Wedding Beside The Seaside

I met Kelly & Andrew last year whilst they were on the hunt for a Nottingham photographer to shoot their wedding day in Scarborough. As a frequent visitor to my parents caravan on the East Yorkshire coast this was a perfect one for me. They’d certainly got the weather for a seaside wedding, it was well in it’s mid twenties with just a slight sea breeze blowing in on their venue The Spa Scarborough.


I will remember it for being the most emotional bridal entrance to a wedding I’ve seen so far, one that even had me sharing a tear in the camera view finder, as Kelly was overwhelmed with emotion which dominoed to her mum, aunt and even her brother who walked Kelly down the aisle was holding back a tear or two.  It was all happy tears though, Kelly and Andrew are completed with a beautiful family of two little boys and it was a special moment to see them celebrating the day all together.


After an emotional ceremony it was out onto the balcony overlooking the seafront for some family photographs and then the three of us headed off for a little walk.  It was a stunning day, maybe a little too hot but hey how many of those days do we really get here in England!


Andrew & Kelly (and the boys) thank you for inviting me to capture your day, I’ve enjoyed every minute of my time with you and your family.  I wish you great love and happiness, please keep in touch …… I’m going to miss you all! Becky xx
