I'm not sure how professional it is for the photographer to cry at their client's wedding - but it when the couple are people you have known for a long time, I think it is excusable! Fausto and Kelly's day could not have been more perfect - it took place at the beautiful countryside venue of Frasers at Coldharbour and they could not have been better looked after. Weddings are a coming together of so many different friends and family, it is one of those times in your life when you can be guaranteed to be surrounded by people who love you and are there to celebrate your love. I can promise you that mine were not the only tears shed.
As a photographer, it is so important to be constantly learning and exploring all sorts of genres of photography. Food photography may not seem like an obvious choice for me to be looking at but I have spent the weekend watching the amazing food photographer, Penny de los Santos, running an on-line workshop with CreativeLive.com.
It is a privilege to watch another photographer at work, to see their techniques and style and how they work with the light.
Even though I primarily shoot people, I have learned so much and been inspired by the course.
I would recommend to any photographer, taking time out to learn a new technique or a different style of photography as it all informs what you do.
This gorgeous girl is just 5 weeks old and SO cute. She also LOVES her sleep (lucky mum and dad!). We spent a lot of time gently encouraging her to wake up, just for a moment so that I could photograph those beautiful eyes. Luckily, Ruby is just as photogenic asleep as awake.

Well, it’s been a wonderful few weeks, with the children off school and lots of bank holidays – I have been taking a bit of time out but I haven’t forgotten you all!
I have been spending some time researching new products that I can offer. One I am very excited about is this bespoke wallpaper. It is printed locally on thick, wipe clean wallpaper and would look wonderful on a feature wall.
You will be able to choose an image from our session together and get made into wallpaper to fit the measurements of your space.
You can see here what one of my clients has done with their paper.
It’s a novel way to show off your images and will always be a talking point in your home.
Pop along to www.janetpenny.com for a glimpse of my glamorous new website. It has taken me a long time to design and develop it but I am very pleased with the new look and feel. I will be running a blog on there, in tandem with this one.
