For a little while now I have been thinking about what SummerLove is about, what you can expect and how this all translates into your experience of having photographs with me, whether that is weddings, bumps and babies or family. The key ingredient here for me is people - to me that equates to characters, relationships, moments that you remember, moments that are those in-between moments, emotions and telling a story. That's what I strive to achieve during the photography and as an end product.
In addition to the photography, I see the beginning, the middle and the end as an experience, an experience that you invest in and you look back on and smile. I will be there to guide you, talk with you, share advice and information and listen to what you would like the outcome of your investment to be, whether that is a beautiful keepsake album, a large frame for your lounge or for the ability to create your own gifts and prints.
During your photography, I am unobtrusive, relaxed and friendly. Key to everything is light, I love natural light but I'm not afraid to add light if it is needed either. I use direction for portraits but direction that encourages natural engagement with each other, responses and expressions. I will also keep everything very natural and encourage play, activities and to just sit back and wait. I love to style up a portrait session using simple props like a homespun wigwam, balloons or a chaise.
It is difficult to sum up the approach in a few simple words, but words I like to use are freedom, natural, relaxed, space, charm, story telling, beautiful, soul.
