Emily has been one of my closest and oldest friends. I was THRILLED to take their family photos in their first home. Their family was so easy to capture and I LOVED how they turned out!!

Philip Kassanis- Architect and Urban Designer

His career has been forged through thirty years in private practice. For most of the time he has been as an architect but increasingly during the last eight years he has been as an urban designer and masterplanner, qualifying at Oxford Brookes University as an urban designer in May 2008.

I’m looking forward to watching his business grow and it was a pleasure doing his pictures for the launch of his new website.

I had the lovely opportunity to photograph one of my best friends while traveling to Seattle on my trip home. She is a photographer too and has taught me so many amazing things over the years that I’ve known her. She just got married a few weeks ago and it’s been sooo fun to be able to see her and capture her true beauty. We had fun doing this shoot because she did her own editing :) check out her site! www.effulgencephotography.com

A piece of my heart…

August 13, 2010  |  Blog  |  No Comments

Well the month of July was the busiest month I’ve had since I moved to the UK, with over 30 shoots. Ranging from babies, families, weddings, events and gigs. I had an absolute blast photographing different kinds of areas of photography. Most of all, I just love shooting people and getting to know the people who I work with.

Some of my fav pix from the month!

August has been a bit of a “hideaway” month as I’ve needed to catch up editing all the events from July. So my sincere apologies if you haven’t seen me the last two weeks. My aim is to get everything edited and delivered before I go to Seattle on the 26th of this month. Woohoo I’m going home for almost 3 weeks!

My aim for my trip home has several purposes. I’m attending the WPPI conference in Seattle to learn more about wedding photography and I’m excited to hear Jasmine Star speak (she is a rock star wedding photographer). I’m going to hang out with a few of my photographer friends to learn some more tricks and fun ideas. I have a passion to learn and it’s just who I am. I do tend to ask ALOT of questions in general, sometimes I think people think I’m like a 5 year old or something, hehe oh well. I’m also planning to do a road trip down to SanFran to visit some relatives down the coast of Oregon and also visit my friend Jaime in Cali. I CANNOT WAIT to eat an IN&OUT BURGER. I’m also very excited to do some shoots with friends in WA, as I’d love to establish my business in both countries.

And lastly, I’m very excited to see and hang out with my dear friend Bethany!! I was honoured to be asked to be a bridesmaid, but sadly was not able to attend the amazing ceremony in SanFran. She is a such a beautiful person and she makes me smile to be around!

These two are absolutely hilarious! Even after 6 years of marriage, these two still “have it.” The shoot started off with the 4 of us(I brought Toby with me) crammed in a car with a VERY large double bass (nice ice breaker to start a shoot)
I really wanted to shoot them with the deer, but Tobs was a little freaked out. Oh well, maybe next time…. ENJOY!

Cheryl needed some photos for her new nutritional therapy website that she’s working on. She wanted bright and natural photos of herself, as well as nature. She suggested we go to Kew Gardens and it was amazing! We spent the whole day shooting stock photography for her site and became friends too. Enjoy!

The Mallonee Family

I met the Mallonees a few months back while working for the chiropractor’s office. Kristen and I hit it off straight away because she had worked for a chiropractor back in the states. The fact that they were Americans made me VERY happy because we shared our love for Trader Joes. Todd is the local children’s pastor and it’s been sooo fun getting to know their family! Enjoy!

Next to my husband, Jonathon is probably one of my fav. guys in England- I know that sounds a bit cheesy, but really he’s such a cool guy. My favourite memory is him showing up to my wedding in a designer suit with a pink shirt- I was like wow, this is my kinda friend!
Jonathan is an amazing athlete and everyone is supporting him train for the 2012 London Olympics. We took these photos near Ham House in Richmond- gorgeous lighting and stunning shots!

Asian Henna Party, with no henna, but PURE beauty!

Wow, I truly felt honoured to be a part of this amazing evening. Sheerine, the sister of the groom contacted me to do their photos. I was blown away by the colours, beautiful shoes and jewellry and the hospitality of this family. This event is special because it celebrates the groom a few days before his wedding- the bride was not allowed to attend, but I hope to meet her one day.

I think the most special thing about this pre-wedding celebration was the love that I saw for the groom, son, brother and friend. Each guest was given the opportunity to bless the groom by anointing his head with olive oil, giving him a sweet to eat and giving him a hug and kiss to show how special he was to them. Truly beautiful!
