Regional Finalist!!!

I’m totally delighted to have made it through to being a Regional Finalist in The Wedding Industry Awards, these Awards are really special as it goes on client feedback only and is all dependant on what feedback and scores your past clients give you. It really means a great deal to have such happy couples and know I’m doing a good job! It makes me incredibly happy!

Lancaster Wedding Loveliness!

Hello!

Here are some of the images I’m currently loving working on, a wedding I photographed in July. A gorgeous day spent with a couple who were laidback and loved up and their fun friends and family.

To explain the couple are members of the Young Farmers Association hence the pitchforks at the church after the ceremony (an old tradition, very glamorously done too!)  The church ceremony images, with those little glances, remind me of the reason I do this job, it’s such a special moment and such a joy to capture!

Oh and some brilliant photo-bombing during a ‘romantic’ shot at the end, many, many more to follow xxx

Radio Silence…

There has been a total lack of social media-ness in the last couple of weeks and I thought I’d just Blog a quick ‘hello’!

July whizzed by in a total blur of weddings, both small, intimate and massive and spangly ones (featuring a marquee with an actual fountain inside no less, wowsers!- preview to follow soon). To add to the fun we have started to have our house renovated to turn it into the ‘dream home’ we always knew it could be, so in amongst the dust and mud I’m frantically adding to my Dream House scrap book (that’s not tragic is it??! 😉 haha, I know it is! )

We also had our first foreign family holiday with our son (rapidly approaching 2 years old, ahoy there terrible twos!) Which was wonderful, different with child in tow but great fun, even the dreaded flight was fun.

We went to France for our lovely friends Elizabeth and Ben’s Wedding and I finally got to meet my namesake, their photographer Susie Lawrence, as I was enjoying being ‘off duty’ it was lovely to see them safely in her hands! As Susie said on her Facebook post- “Susie Lawrence Photography meets Suzi Lawrence Photography! My namesake was a guest at today’s wedding. Lovely to meet her x”

And it really was! Here we are and some more shots from Holibobs to follow soon too! xxIMG_3247 IMG_3239 IMG_3157

Awesome Twosome Siblings Photo Shoot

I’ve been lovely and busy with the portrait photoshoots recently and really enjoyed shooting brother and sister Josh and Georgia. They are such fun to be around, Georgia is a real little character and her brother Josh only stopped smiling in 1 picture! A natural born poser! The images were lovely to work on and I thoroughly enjoyed playing and capturing them! What a wonderful job I have! And thanks Annie for helping me get the best out of them and creating such little cuties! x

 

 

Spring Blossom Special Offer!!!

9356BLOSS OFFER                                                                                                                                                                              As the stunning backdrop of the Cotswolds is brimming with colour at the moment it’s the ideal time to grab the camera and head outside to capture it!

For a limited time only I am offering Mini Shoots using outside spaces with Spring colour! There are plenty of fruit trees blossoming in Cheltenham in the parks and countryside or you may prefer to use a tree in blossom in your garden or somewhere special to you!

Another fantastic location I’m very keen to capture are the bluebell woods and bright yellow rape oil fields, although some folk are very allergic so best to check that first!

These ‘Mini Shoots’ are ideal for couple images, if you’ve just got engaged or are celebrating an anniversary or perhaps a baby bump shoot! It’s best suited to couples or small groups and/or pets too!

Mini Shoots are £50 for 45 minutes and include 2 digital 10 by 8 images, please use the Contact Me page to email me for more info!!!

Bumpalicious shoots!….

pic 1pic 4

I don’t know if it’s because Spring is in the air and the little lambs are jumping around and there’s bloom everywhere but I seem to be surrounded by beautiful, blooming bumpalicious ladies!!!

I’ve done a few Bump sessions recently and have a couple more lined up and I have to say I totally LOVE capturing this amazing time for people and photographing the truly awesome female body. I know pregnancy isn’t always the time when you feel your most photogenic but I don’t think it’s about ‘posing’ anyway, it’s a natural, everyday miracle and should be treasured!

One of the beautiful bump sessions I’ve enjoyed recently was extra special as the yummy mummy is expecting twins! And she looks so fantastic! I know she felt a little self-conscious at first but the results, I think are stunning! Really natural and something to be really proud of!

My Bump sessions can be part of a Bump to Baby package where there is a follow up session with the baby, either new born or up to 6 months. This makes an excellent gifts for a friend, family member, work colleague, (whose off on maternity leave) and a great gift to give collectively at a Baby Shower! Please contact me for prices via the Contact Me page (prices are around £250).

It was lovely to see my images on the SoGlosWedding Directory website at the end of last week, featuring the Bassant’s -Lou and Dave who had a beautiful, hot and sunny wedding day at Hatton Court Hotel in Gloucestershire.

It was such a happy day! https://www.facebook.com/soglosweddings/posts/1632985953600975

Happy Easter folks!

Here at S.L Photography H.Q we’ve been on an Easter egg hunt in the garden! I loved doing this as a child (and still do!) I hope everyone’s enjoying a bit of family time and chance to relax over the Easter break!

spring-ing-inspiration!!!

Howdy!

Well, I for one am excited…Spring time is in the air and I’ve just celebrated my Birthday, which to anyone that knows me, is a BIG deal! I LOOOOOVE Birthdays and after the cold grey skies I’m very excited to see the sun out-it has filled me up with Spring-ing-inspiration!

Hurrah!

So much so that I’ve created a little moodboard, so to explain here are some of  the gifts I was lucky enough to receive-a handmade heart shaped vic sponge (just enough for 1 really but I was feeling generous!), some gorgeous hot pink shoes in a sparkly new washbag and a tea caddy for my daily staple- currently Green tea, as well as the must have Yorkshire and Earl Grey (for those refined moments)!

The tree shot is a beautiful walnut tree at the end of my garden that is literally buzzing at the moment as it’s covered in giant bumble-bee’s, so not only does it look exciting it sounds pretty cool too!

The bottom image really does make me smile…I played with some cereal and love the results, I think that despite your age always remember to make fun wherever possible!
