Tres Corazones, Wendover – Food Photography in Buckinghamshire

Tapas & Cocktails – a taste of the Med in leafy Wendover

When I get a call to go to a restaurant to create some Food & Drink Photography, I couldn’t be happier. I get very excited at the thought of playing with beautiful dishes of food, but this time the drinks to accompany were just as artistically pleasing.

Tres Corazones is a thriving tapas restaurant in the middle of Wendover. It’s always busy and buzzy, with Katrina heading up her successful family-run business. Katrina runs the restaurant with her two daughters, hence the name Tres Corazones ‘Three Hearts’. Katrina is also very proud of her exclusively Spanish kitchen team. The authenticity of the food at Tres Corazones is guaranteed.

Tres Corzones is not only renown for its high quality food. It has made a name for itself with its very special selection of cocktails. The ingredients are all the best on the market and made with precision and care. I have to admit I may have had a couple of taster sips. Divine!

If you’ve been to Spain and have a severe craving for authentic tapas, Tres Corazones is waiting to transport you back to that special place. Remember to book in advance!

On location – Family Portraits Buckinghamshire

Family Portraits Buckinghamshire in the great outdoors

I knew we were going to have fun photographing Family Portraits Buckinghamshire.  Great setting, gorgeous family.   I’ve known Billy & Katie for years and have kept track of their growing family. It was a real honour to be asked to make some little heirlooms for them.  The kids climbed trees, ran up and down hills and generally just did their thing.  Will, Indi and Bo are such scrumptious children.  Photographing them in the beautiful Hughenden Park gave them a sense of freedom, giving me a chance to capture that feeling.

It was a beautiful day and we couldn’t have asked for better weather.  The surroundings at Hughenden Park are like a dream come true for a photographer.  At every turn there is another opportunity to create a gorgeous image.  From the tree lined avenue to hilly expanses.  It’s hard to beat for its variety of opportunities.

One of my favourite moments was when the children all sat on a ‘log’ bench. I hid behind it with my camera and popped up to surprise them.  We got some great expressions and I was delighted with the composition of the shot.  I loved that the family had brought their sweet doggy with them and she made the photographs complete.  It’s great to bundle together on the grass or just let the kids go crazy and run around.  There are no rules when it comes to Family Portraits.  I let the family dictate what happens and give a little bit of gentle direction if it’s needed.

Beautiful products, stunning surroundings, lovely business lady…perfect working conditions!

What a lovely thing to be able to say.  I’m a Commercial Photographer Buckinghamshire.  Never have I photographed a location that smelled so good.  The Littlecote Soap Co. is a gorgeous local business headed up by the captivating, vivacious and wonderfully creative Elaine Stavert.  Elaine has found success by mixing potions, playing with aromas and combining natural ingredients to create a divine collection of soaps and toiletries.  All of the organic products are made and sold at their little farm shop in Dunton, Buckinghamshire.  Customers delight in browsing for gifts and treats, the very experience of walking into the shop full of beautiful aromas is worth the visit alone.  There is a large selection of different ranges, each with it’s own signature scent.  The most popular range is Gin & Tonic and my particular fave is White Wine and Fig – scrumptious!  The products are also available to purchase via their website www.littlecotesoap.co.uk.  If you can get to the shop, go!  It’s just delicious and full of great gift ideas….don’t forget to treat yourself too.

Why is a good business portrait so important?

I met Tara at an Athena Network training day.  She greeted me with her warm smile and at once I knew I had just made a friend, she has that effect.  Tara runs a very successful Virtual Assistant company and confided in me that she had no professional images of herself for her social media.  She was making do with a family ‘snap’ of herself in Paris in the rain and felt it didn’t represent her professionally.   Within a couple of weeks Tara arrived at my studio armed with her smile.  There ensued a relaxed chat/gossip/network/brainstorm/photo shoot and lo!  We had our images.  Tara now proudly uses them for her social media…and proud she should be.

Well crafted Head Shots for all your profiles and website is essential if you want to give a professional impression.  Be recognised too – don’t use photographs of yourself from 1987 sporting a bubble perm.  Let’s get you looking your best so that you can really SHOUT from the internet!

Weddings, Babies and Lots of Love

One couple’s fairytale

12th June 2010…I strolled through the sun dappled gardens of The Tythe Barn at Launton.  Close by were Drew and Victoria, that very hour newly wed.  They giggled, gazed and smooched as I photographed, it was a truly memorable day, full of love and excitement.  Fast forward to a chilly February morning in 2013, there’s a knock at my door and in from the cold appear Victoria, Drew and…..Sam!  Two have become three and I had the absolute honour of photographing my beautiful bride and groom once more, this time with their perfect dumpling of loveliness Sam.

Sam found my strange noises and deranged expressions at first bemusing, followed by interesting and finally entertaining.  Smiles were plentiful and I got that whole ‘grit your teeth ‘cos you want to scrumble them up’ feeling with Sam, he’s a joyful little man.  It means the world to be able to document this wonderful couple’s adventures, long may it last.

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…

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!
