Baby Photography with Kelly Jo

Dazzling Megan makes my day

When little Megan came to see me the first thing I noticed staring at me from her cosy car seat was her amazing saucer-like eyes.  I adore a baby’s curiosity and Megan’s expressive little mush seemed to say ‘What on EARTH is going on here?’  She’s a treasure and I’m so glad I was able to capture those eyes.  I used natural light to really make the most of Megan’s brand new adorableness.  Can you see the ‘catchlights’ in her eyes?  They are made by a window…which is pretty apt I believe.  I’m grinning crazily while I’m writing this, just looking at Megan’s photos makes my day a great deal sunnier.

Say hello if you’d like to know more about natural light baby portraits…I’m so excited about new ideas I want to try.  Email me and tell me the story of your little person! Click here to get in touch…

Working with Gina and Rachael from GEM Catering was not only great fun and exciting, it was eye opening and inspiring.  The girls create some truly fabulous feasts from their stunning kitchen out in the countryside near Milton Keynes.  The mother and daughter duo really know what they want to say about their catering business through their images.  Rachael’s sugar craft expertise dazzles and Gina creates delicious delights backed up with a wealth of entrepreneurial experience. I was able to capture the essence of what they do through their wonderful food and sparkling hostess-ery. Yes, it’s a new word and I like it.

Children’s Portraits with Kelly Jo

Leila – we’ve told her enough, but does she KNOW how delicious she is?

I firmly believe that eyes are the windows to the soul.  When I look into Leila’s eyes I know I’m seeing a very special little soul.  She has brought sunshine into the world. AND she has an amazing super-power, turning grumpy people into giggling fools.  Or grown-ups into jibbering loved-up starry eyed slush puppies.  There’s nothing anyone can do about it, she’s just too beautiful.

Florence makes her debut

I can’t help it, I’m glowing with pride.  I’m delighted to introduce to you my beautiful little niece Florence.  At two weeks old she is diddy, delectable and down right delicious.  At only 5lb 13 ounces, she effortlessly popped into the world and beamed a big light of love on us all right from the start.  When her Mummy opened the front door to me cuddling a nappy-clad Flo I mistakenly thought she’d welcomed me with a small roast partridge.  On closer inspection I realised that Mel wasn’t being insensitive to my vegetarianism and it was indeed a very curled up brand new person.  Mummy, Daddy and brother Willis are very proud and excited to have Flo move in and complete their family. I can’t wait to be naughty Aunty Kell who teaches her rude songs.  Welcome to the world Flo!

Richard & Liz’s Wedding Day

The Tythe Barn, Launton – Oh, such a perfect day

 

[slideshow id=14]

 

The anticipation had been building for weeks and finally Richard & Liz’s big day arrived on the 19th November.  I won’t beat around the bush, these two are totally bonkers. We’d had great fun mucking around at The Tythe Barn in Launton a couple of weeks before and I knew their day was going to be one to remember.  It all started perfectly with bright blue skies, chilly but gorgeous.  Liz made the rather splendid decision to stay in The Dovecote at Manor Farm next to the barn and that’s where I found her that morning, surrounded by her ladies.  Much beautifying occurred and merriment/sandwiches were had by all.  In the meantime, back at The Barn the lovely boys did a conga for me and showed off their personalised socks with pride.  The groom seemed relaxed and ready, the bride seemed relaxed and….late.  But soon she was galloping down the aisle and the rest is history, preserved with love by me and my camera of course.  This was one of those weddings where I really was sad to leave.  These lovebirds had simply invited me to photograph their wedding but as I left I felt like one of the family.  I’ll never forget this day and I wish Richard and Liz all the happiness they deserve.

Fun on the Farm!

Charles & Fleur

I was lucky enough to be able to join Charles and Fleur for some silly time at their beautiful home in Buckinghamshire.  They were kind enough to show me how to make mud pies, run around like crazy things, hug trees, wave sticks and generally be gorgeous.  This dinky brother and sister team made me very welcome and I felt it only right to act like a five year old too. I don’t need much of an excuse. Thanks to all the family for inviting me to join you and I am so proud to know that in designing your family portrait album I have created an heirloom to pass down the generations.  See you in a couple of years for some more Fun on the Farm!

An Autumn walk in the countryside – in shirtsleeves?

[slideshow id=10]

 

Something strange is happening this October – we had beautiful blue skies and eighteen degrees of warm sunshine on our backs.  With perfect conditions for a stroll through the fields, Lottie bounded around in ditches and hedgerows, while Sam recovered from a poke in the eye from Ben. Then Sam chuckled to himself when Ben squelched his Converse into a fresh cowsplat. We had lots of fun on our little walk and it was a true pleasure to join this happy family on their warm, sunny Saturday afternoon.

There was a great deal of anticipation for this one.  I love working with a team, it’s so exhilarating when you’re used to working on your own.  The location was what got me going, somewhere secret in deepest Buckinghamshire that I’d discovered and had permission to access – more on this later.  After a long day we were all so excited by what we’d achieved, even Dom was really happy with the hair (‘perfectionist’ doesn’t come close).  It was a delight to work with these guys again and we’re already planning the next one.
