Spring mini session in Bushy Park – part two

Here’s another of the lovely mini sessions that took place last month, having been postponed several times due to the freezing weather conditions. The sun made an appearance on the day, even though it was a bit chilly. But there was lots of beautiful blossom about, some very sociable ducks and bubbles – always a winner…

If you would like a family mini portrait session, I am running some more on Saturday 29 June and have a couple of slots left. I will confirm location nearer the time, but it will either be Richmond or Teddington. The slots available are 9.30am and 10.15am. You can see further details of this and other mini sessions here There’s still time to book one of these as a Father’s Day gift if you get in touch asap. I can personalise a voucher for Dad if you let me know what you would like on it. Or you can buy a voucher for a family shoot at a time to suit you.

Spring mini session in Bushy Park – Part one

I am finally just getting round to posting some of my spring mini shoots. They were originally planned for 16 March, but due to the sleet, snow and general wintry conditions, they finally took place in April after several changes of date. This shoot was definitely worth waiting for because the morning was beautiful – not too cold, with the added bonus of some sunshine! Bushy Park was looking beautiful with lots of blossom on the trees and daffodils, and we were almost the only ones there so Theo, the star of the shoot, ran about and played hide and seek behind the trees to his heart’s content. And some friendly ducks came to say hello to the family too…

Family portrait session in East Sheen

I had a family portrait session with this lovely family in April. We started off the session in their home and garden and then moved on to Sheen Common where we did a mini Easter egg hunt among the daffodils. We were very fortunate with the weather since it started pouring practically as soon as we had finished the shoot and carried on for what felt like most of April…

Headshot session in SW19

I have been lucky to have lots of headshot sessions lately which I always enjoy. The session below took place in Wimbledon a couple of weeks ago. David Fierstone, the star of the headshots, needed some new photos for his CV and got in touch. As usual with the headshot sessions I run, we had a chat over a coffee beforehand so that I could find out exactly what he wanted. He admitted that he didn’t like having his photo taken and found that his face froze once a camera lens was pointing at him. I can identify with this since I don’t like having my photo taken, so we chatted throughout the session and he relaxed and stopped being aware of me snapping away. I really enjoyed the photo shoot too, especially hearing all David’s stories of celebrities! David took the time to write this lovely testimonial after the session which I wanted to share:

“I needed some professional head shots for my CV and general use. I’ve always been uncomfortable in front of a camera, so I was slightly apprehensive about having them done and about the cost factor! Then I found Jo, we met for a coffee first to discuss what I needed and she immediately put me at ease. We continued to chat throughout the photo shoot which certainly helped me to relax to the extent I forgot Jo was pointing a camera at me. The result was that she took the best shots I have had done for years and did the impossible, actually caught me naturally smiling and looking quite handsome, the woman’s a genius! Needless to say I’ve appointed her my official photographer and commissioned her for my wedding! She’s really correct with her prices and great fun to work with too.”

Please get in touch if you need some up-to-date headshots for your CV, blog or social media profiles. I promise to make the experience as painless as possible!

 

Portrait session on Wimbledon Common

This bout of unseasonably cold weather has meant that I have just postponed my spring mini sessions for a second time! They were originally booked for last Saturday and then this Sunday. And I have been refreshing the BBC Weather website hourly in the hope that the sleet and snow showers forecast will be replaced by spring sunshine. But the cold weather looks set to stay for a while longer so, to save the families booked on the mini sessions from freezing, we have moved them to Saturday 6 April. I now have one slot free for then at 10.45am so if you would like a spring shoot then please get in touch asap… You can see details of them just here http://www.sweetheartstudio.co.uk/spring-mini-sessions-in-march/

In the meantime, since I don’t have any spring shoots to blog, I thought I would catch up and post one of the many shoots from last year that I haven’t got round to sharing yet. This one took place in September on Wimbledon Common. I had taken photos of the little star of the shoot when he was just a baby so it was lovely to catch up with the family again and to see him running about and being a very entertaining bundle of energy.
