Happy New Year… to all my wonderful couples and families!
Perhaps this Christmas you got engaged, maybe this year you will say ‘I do’ or perhaps this is the year one of your resolutions is to make sure you have that family photo shoot, whichever it is I am thrilled you have popped by to check out the website/blog!
2017 was an incredible year for me both with my business and personally. I travelled around East Anglia shooting some incredible weddings, I captured lots of lovely families, children and some awesome couples on their engagement shoots and I even found a little time to photograph some incredible ladies for my Secret Unveil shoots.
It was also the year I spent most of pregnant and I am thrilled to have been able to do a full year of work, the end of which with my rather large bump! With that in mind I want to thank all my amazing couples and families for your huge support through the year. Every wedding I shot my couples as well as their family and friends couldn’t do enough to look after me, make sure I was fed and watered and if I had a £1 for every time someone told me to sit down for 5 minutes! My pregnancy was a really good one so I found capturing weddings, although a little harder on my back and feet, just as amazing as always and I am pretty over the moon with the incredible weddings I was lucky enough to shoot (best of 2017 post to follow!)
On the 4th of December, two whole weeks late our gorgeous little girl Robyn arrived at 11.18am weighing 6lb 6oz and she was perfect. All the reasons I adore capturing peoples lives, their children, their families together, their wedding vows, their engagement images were all heightened when I held my baby girl and I can honestly say I have never been more proud to be able to capture the love for my families and couples.
With that in mind I was over the moon to head to meet Vicki at Pennycress for our newborn and first family shoot when Robyn was just 10 days old and we were just a few days out of hospital. I had actually booked this shoot with Vicki when I was just 16 weeks pregnant as I have always loved her work and wanted to make sure we got a space in plenty of time (if you are pregnant be sure to book asap!) Babies being what they are Robyn chose not to arrive on time but in fact two weeks late after I was induced (she was far to warm and comfy in there!) Vicki was lovely and even so close to Christmas was able to move our slot around to make sure we captured Robyn while she was still tiny and I am so glad she did as she has already changed so much! We were with Vicki for over 4 hours as our little lady did not want to go to sleep but Vicki made it relaxing and we had a lovely time despite our sleep deprivation.
So I wanted to start 2018 by introducing our little girl with some of the beautiful images Vicki captured for us.
2018 is going to be amazing, I already have an incredibly full year of weddings and so many lovely couples that I can’t wait to get to know further and capture them say ‘I do’. I also have a very big mailing list of families who would love a photo shoot this year and they will be emailed soon to get their date booked in (feel free to email if you are not on the list – firstname.lastname@example.org) I am so, so excited for the year ahead so watch this space as there will still be oodles of shoots and wedding images to see!
In the mean time a very Happy New Year to everyone and here is the newest and littlest addition to Katherine Ashdown Photography…
