Beatles themed party

Another great party a few weekends back … a Beatles themed party in Liverpool at the wonderful Hard Days Night Hotel. For those that don’t know, or couldn’t guess, its a brilliant Beatles themed hotel. I’ve shot there loads of times, both weddings and parties. Indeed, my first wedding of 2016 is back there early January. Anyway, a fab 40th birthday for Tara and Simon – loads of friends and loads of dressing up. Here are just a few of my favourites from the evening.

Lifestyle photo shoot checklist

Getting the best out of our photo sessions involves a little planning on your part. Sorting out the details will mean the shoot goes perfectly and you end up with some wonderful photos to last a lifetime!

Eat, drink and sleep well

All are necessary for life, as well as good portrait sessions! Seriously, plan an early night the day before out session, adults as well as children. As rested means relaxed. And don’t turn up hungry – have some high-energy drinks and snacks on hand – Dad will appreciate it!

Organising your families clothes

Choose clothes that people feel relaxed in and plan colours to match as a group, rather than just for the individual. Get everything ready beforehand and bring some alternatives, just in case of accidents! I’d avoid brand names and logos as they tend to date the photographs and stick with solid neutral coloured items.

Bring along some props

This could be as simple as a child’s favourite toy. Or a piece of sports equipment. Something that makes the image unique to you guys and helps people relax. Perhaps a favourite book, or something from nature. I’ll have suggestions but you know your family better than me! Go creative!

Liverpool photographers checklist for families

Arrive on time

Fairly obvious but arriving in rush, not only cuts into your time on location but makes everyone a little stressed and trust me, this comes out in the pictures. So get there ten minutes early, have a look around, I’ll be there and we can plan out some poses and have a bit of ‘getting to know each other’ time.

Have a laugh!

Fun and laughter all make great photography. If Mum and Dad are relaxed and having fun, often means the little ones will too. And I promise not to tell too many rubbish jokes!

Finally, keep an eye on my site and Facebook pages

I’ll post up a sneak-peek as quick as I can online (as long as you are cool with this) – so please have a look and give it some sharing love to friends and relatives! Once I’ve finished editing the images you will have your own password protected online gallery and of course all of them on a CDR or USB pen ready for printing.

Photography at childrens parties – Phoebe’s birthday

I’ve been asked to photograph children’s parties on numerous occasions and each time it has been a lot of fun. Phoebe’s third birthday party recently was absolutely brilliant. Great fun and games from¬† entertainer Super Mario and loads of emotion, interaction, colour and energy throughout the afternoon ! The sun also shined and there was even a bouncy castle !

Engagement photography West Yorkshire

Engagement photography with Gerrad and Paulette

I travelled down the M62 to meet Gerrard and Paulette at their wedding venue and after a little chat and get to know each other, we did a quick engagement photography shoot. The weather held out for us and quickly they relaxed, enabling me to make some wonderful couple portraits. They are getting married at the rather splendid Gomersal Park Hotel, near Bradford. So it made sense to meet there and use the fantastic grounds for our photo shoot.

So really looking forward to their big day now – only a couple of weeks to go.

I offer pre-wedding photo shoots / couple’s engagement portraits as a standalone package as well as an optional extra to your bespoke wedding photography. I really enjoy engagement shoots, and the freedom they bring. We aren’t tied down to a specific date, so if the weather changes for the worst we can always re-schedule. No beautiful white dress to stand on and ruin. Plus we have much more time than at most weddings to relax and get perfect shots ! So please get in touch to book a session !

Family portrait Liverpool

A lovely morning on Pierhead for a family portrait !

It’s lovely when some old friends are in town, a great chance to hook up and take a few family portrait photos. I took Vince and Abigail’s wedding photographs in Bristol in 2007 and it was great to see them again in Liverpool and meet their new family. We had all been at a wedding the previous evening and decided to get up early and have a little tour of the waterfront and Pierhead. As luck would have it, it was one of those magical, crispy bright autumn mornings and we had a ball. Below are a small selection from the shoot – thank you Vince and Abigail for letting me show them on my blog – I think they are lovely.

Happy times in Yorkshire by a lifestyle photographer

A quick trip across the Pennines to Yorkshire for some more lifestyle portrait photography with Jane and her family. And while I’m a lifestyle photographer based in Liverpool, I’m more than happy to travel. I brought my mobile studio and we did some work indoors, before venturing outside to a local park. The weather wasn’t great but we had some fun with the leaves and their lovely children.
