Saturday dawned and I was in Jesmond Dene for a couple of mini sessions, my first was with 5 year old Chester who was a rescue Spaniel and beautiful boy, Looby was helping as usual and she took quite a shine to Chester.
After Chester, I met this little pumpkin, totally gorgeous and we had a lovely time together.
I then met a lovely grown up sister and her brothers who were having a photo shoot to get some photos for a Mothers Day Present, I can't share those though as I don't want to spoil mums surprise.
On Sunday it was sunny and lovely for a while and I had a photo shoot down in Whitley Bay so I got a lovely sunny wander afterwards enjoying the sea air. I do love a coastal wander.
I met this little lady at her home in Whitley Bay, she's nearly 3 and when she's big she's going to be strong, independent and a definite future leader of the known world, forthright 3 year olds are always a pleasure to photograph, you never quite know what they're going to do next!
Meanwhile back at home and Poppy cat was giving me that look ;)
and then Looby, Dorito the dog and I took a walk down through the Ouseburn Valley and along the quayside, I love that it's getting lighter in the evenings and we can go out for daily walks again.
I have to say that I am loving the Fuji X-Pro1 for portraits of children coupled with the 35mm f1.4, it's like no other camera I've ever owned and after using it for portraits this weekend I'm sure it's earned it's place in my kitbag.
looking forward to what's on the schedule for this week, well I'm off to a new networking thing, I'm speaking at the Inspire Network Sunderland meeting on Friday on marketing with Facebook and then on Saturday afternoon I have availability for photo shoots at Tynemouth Longsands and on Sunday morning I have a couple of slots available for mini sessions at Saltwell Park, and I'm also hoping to get another couple of weddings booked into my schedule too. If you would like to speak to me about shooting your portraits or your wedding you can contact me through my facebook page, my website or even by email.
