Nottingham Photographer And The Grundle Family

Well my November resolution is still going to plan and my blogging is is well and truly on a roll.

last night in the studio I had Paul Grundle Magician and his family with his Grandson for their family portraits, it's extremely rare I ever capture family portraits due to my Wedding photography bookings.

However as it was Paul Grundle I could hardly say no, I mean you never know this guy could actually turn me into a frog !!!!

Paul Grundle and his family were here around 90 minutes for their family photos, 10 minutes in everyone was relaxed and the smiles were free flowing (even Paul was on form tonight)

Paul I have now known you since 13th December 2014 where we met at Nottinghamshire Golf And Country Club, Paul knowing you has been an amazing journey of entertainment, smile and a great friendship.

 I can still to this date remember when we were stood outside my house and you stopped some random lady in the street and performed one of your close up magic tricks on me where the lady actually was part of it, I will never forget the moment that lady knew the card I was thinking off, I just wish someone had video'd the sheer amazement on my face as i'm stood in the street with a whisk rotating on my forehead !!

It gives me great pleasure to post just a few images from your portrait shoot in my studio.

Thank you

Nottingham Portrait Photographer Windsor Family

I have known Darren and Clare for many years, in fact both Darren and Clare came to my own wedding back in 2011 to my wonderful wife Kerri in the grounds of Wollaton Hall.

Their family consisted of Dad (Darren) Mum (Clare) Daughter (Madison) Son (Riley), for this famly photo shoot I would have to work fast and efficiently as both children were still very young and their attention could soon drift off into boredom if I didn't keep them entertained. 

The Windsor family were in the studio for their portraits for about 1 hour, as their children were still interested we all decided to view the images id taken on the big screen and have a laugh and a giggle at the images i had taken, I love doing this if we have time as it s a great way for my clients to already see the quality of the images i have taken, allowing them to leave my studio satisfied at the quality of their images.

Please feel free to contact me, I would love to hear from you if you would like any more information or book a Nottingham Portrait Photographer for your family portraits.

Wollaton Park Portrait Photography

Location: Wollaton Park

I have known Lily and her Mum Lisa for many years and I have photographed their family a few times before, Lisa want her daughter Lily's portraits updating as the last time I photographed her was probably about 2 years ago if not more.

We were on location for around 90 mins, it was cold but not cold enough that we ever had to stop work and find shelter, we manage to photograph in the Orangery which was nice as there was no wind.

I love photographing with natural light and today was one of those days where we were able to photograph with little or no flash at all.

Here are just a few images taken on the day, please don't forget to contact me if you would like to book.

many thanks

Nottingham Photographer The Johnson Family

Emma and Kye booked their family portrait session with me as they wanted the fun and excitement with their son Blake to be captured in my Stapleford studio.

Due to Blakes age I would have to work fast to keep his attention focused on what we needed capturing, I worked very hard to keep Blake focused and looking at the camera, I even managed to wrap myself up in toilet roll in order to have his full attention.

I was lucky enough to have captured Emma and Kye's wedding at Woodborough Hall back in 2014, we have kept in contact ever since, Emma messaged in December wanting to update their family portraits in January 2016 ready to start the new year with a smile and some beautiful images.

To book your Nottingham Portrait Photographer experience please feel free to contact me, I would love to hear from you.
