Wow, the snow today is impressive! Both of my boys are in school/nursery this morning but I’m looking forward to picking them up and getting out with my camera. I do love the look of the snow, but I must admit I am a bit of a wimp in the cold! So we’ll probably end up back inside snuggled up with hot chocolate and a film after not too long.
I took the photos below earlier in the week when I was meant to be putting the washing away. But my 2 year old was in his normal cheeky mood so I couldn’t resist grabbing my camera and taking some photos of him instead. Much more fun than laundry! For any photographers that are reading this, these are all taken with my new-ish 35mm lens. I haven’t used it on many shoots yet as it’s a bit different from my usual style, but it’s fast becoming my go-to lens when photographing my kids indoors. I love the fact you can get super close to them and when I’m just shooting for myself, I don’t care about the distortion!
He certainly does put a smile on my face, he’s a little nutter!
I don’t generally do family shoots outdoors in Jan and Feb, so it does mean that I have more time (and motivation!) to take photos of my own family which I’m really enjoying. I do have lots of workshops and headshot sessions over the next few weeks, I just hope the snow goes away by next week so it doesn’t disrupt anything! I did my first workshop of 2013 this week, you can see the photos from it on my workshop blog.
And just a quick update on my session availability for this year. The next weekend sessions I have available are in May, but I do have weekday availability from March onwards. I mentioned in a previous blog post that I was going to be running a morning of Spring mini sessions again, but they all booked up after I sent an email to past clients and workshop attendees. So I have decided to run some summer mini sessions for the first time this year. There are 3 sessions left and you can read all of the details here. Make sure you reserve your slot soon if you are interested as they do tend to book up quickly.
I hope you have a wonderful time in the snow this weekend, keep warm and safe everyone.
