Photography Training

In June I drove a 600 mile round trip to Hertfordshire from Fowey, Cornwall to attend a photography workshop by Gary Hill & Cassie McKeown, a long way to go but totally worth it as I learnt so much about posing babies, toddlers, adults, family groups and most importantly lighting the subjects........there were more than a few 'penny dropping' moments for me!

It's really important to continue with my training and to have the opportunity to meet other photographers who are specialising in the same kind of work ie newborn photography, family portraits and also cake smashes which are becoming a popular way to celebrate your babies first birthday; we share ideas and learn from each other what works and what doesn't, talk cameras & lenses without boring the pants of people because its their passion too! 

So here are a few images from those two days, the set-ups are all by Gary & Cassie but the images & editing is by me! There's also one of me helping gorgeous twin boys get stuck into a birthday cake!

I was totally captivated by this little mans eyes

After smashing the cake its time for a bubble bath and these twin boys had so much fun in the tub together!
