Kelsey & Jac Portrait Shoot

These guys! They’d just flown in from Australia and you can see they brought a little sunshine of their own with them. By which I mean those fabulous tans. I want one, I haven’t seen the sun in weeks!!  

Helen & Matthew Family Portraits

Helen is one of Laura’s very oldest friends (as in, they’ve known each other from high school, not that she’s really old!), so as soon as she had a baby, we knew we absolutely had to do a portrait shoot! Heading down the the beautiful surroundings of Rivington (how we’d love a little cottage here!),...

Jenny & Sam Family Portraits

From the moment Jenny & Sam’s little one got out the car she was full of smiles and cheekiness, so we knew this was going to be a fun shoot! We had a little wander around Rivington for these portraits, our own little local Lake District, always so nice to get away from the editing...

Kate & Hugo Portrait Shoot – Plus Baby!

The last shoot we posted was of this lovely family, and now they’re back – the bump turned into a baby! So lovely to hang out with Kate & Hugo again, and their new arrival is just adorable. We had to try really hard not to get broody!!

Kate & Hugo Portrait Shoot

Kate & Hugo and their growing brood came up to Rivington for a lovely wintery portrait shoot. Kate also brought along her lovely baby bump! So cute! We did another shoot a couple of months later featuring the new baby too 🙂

Nicky & Rick Portrait Shoot

Nicky & Rick are just about the nicest and most beautiful people you could hope to meet. We ventured out to Beacon Fell to go exploring and photograph them looking all loved up before their wedding.

Joshua & Sophia Portrait Shoot

We photographed the parents of this pair of cuties getting married back in 2009 and it was lovely to see them and their growing family years later. Sophia is so cute (we love babies!!), and Joshua is growing into a cheeky and adorable little boy. A total credit to their parents. Laura (their mum) wanted...

Megan & Sam Portrait Shoot in Rivington

We do love a sunny portrait shoot – and these guys are just about the sunniest couple we’ve ever photographed. Constantly playful, laughing with each other (and at us, not sure it was with us), an absolute joy to shoot! Plus *spoilers* their wedding a few months later was absolutely amazing – we’ll get around...

The Knights

Not only are these guys awesome photographers, but they are really good at making adorable babies too!  Here are some of our favourites from our shoot with them back in the lovely spring blossom 🙂  

Fiona & Ryan Portrait Shoot

Fiona and Ryan flew over from Sydney and went on a mission to organise things for their wedding in the Cotswolds next year.  While they were over in the UK it was the perfect time to finally meet them (and take a few photos obviously).  Autumn is such a perfect time for cosy couple shoots,...

Hannah & Adam Family Shoot

We shot Hannah & Adam’s wedding a few years ago and since then, they’ve started their very own (excellent) photography company. So it was with a little extra pressure that we headed down to London a few weeks ago to shoot some family portraits! Their little one is just as lovely as they are, but...

Low Family portraits

We were so honoured when the lovely Anushé Low asked us to take some portraits of her beautiful family; she is a fellow photographer who we have known online for years, it was time we finally met!  Her gorgeous, expressive babies have obviously been trained well at being in front of the camera, they were...

Kate & Jon – Portrait Shoot

These guys are hilarious, we had so much fun on this shoot at Kate’s family farmhouse.  They may have just come back from their Hen & Stag parties, but they rocked it out all the same.  Braving the rain, a bit of sun, pigs, muddy fields, and potentially hangovers… nothing could put them off each...

Crosby Beach Portrait Shoot

A couple of weeks ago we went to the very picturesque Crosby Beach to photograph these two little people.  Bribery in the form of ice creams worked a treat 🙂 We’d never visited Crosby beach before, but it’s rather beautiful – especially on gloriously sunny (maybe a bit windy) day like this.
