Urban jungle is heaven for any cactus & succulent fan, so when I first heard about this place I knew my sister would love it.
Me & my sister headed over to Urban Jungle, to check it out, it didn’t disappoint, so many different plants to look at so many different shapes and textures, a photographers heaven to shoot.
While we were there, I couldn’t resist a mini shoot with my sister. While we were there, it would have been rude not to stop for a hot drink and a slice of delicious homemade cake from the cafe, which is set within the ‘Jungle’, you really do feel like you’re somewhere tropical.
Here’s some of my faves.
Pets are such a big part of our families, they have so much love to give and become another family member.
Growing up, our family had lots of pets, my love for cats was born when I was about 9, I remember crazing my parents for a cat.
About a year later I inherited the family cat, Kelly from my great-grandparents. I adored this cat, she lived until 18, so pretty old for a cat!
Here’s some of my favourites, family pets, pets I’ve met on photo shoots and some lovely horses I saw on a drive home from a photo shoot, and I just had to stop and meet them.
This was just a quick shoot I assembled at home with my beautiful engagement ring and some flowers I had got from the supermarket.
I just wanted to do a very quick and simple styled shoot to show how lovely it is to capture the floral arrangements on your wedding day.
It’s something Bride & Grooms spend a lot of money on for their big day but unfortunately something you can’t keep in their original state, so it’s a great idea to get lots of photos of your bouquet and other flowers and floral arrangements.
Here’s a few of my favourites
Since I made the decision in the middle of 2017 to make my hobby into a new business venture, I have visited so many more places.
Lots of places that are right on my doorstep that I kept saying I must visit one weekend, but never did because life just gets in the way, I have now been.
When I first decided to embark on this new adventure alongside my full time job, I knew I needed a portfolio before I could go any further, I was a bit scared to advertise and ask people I didn’t know to model for me at first, I was worried the photos wouldn’t be good enough to give to the people I had asked to model.
However I am lucky enough to have a gorgeous sister who very kindly agreed to model for me on quite a few occasions.
After a few months this really helped my confidence grow, I then felt I needed to make my portfolio more diverse different genders and ages, so I then advertised asking for models, I was apprehensive at first but the response I got was fantastic.
All of those people who gave up their time to help me grow my small business, I will always be grateful to you all and really hope that you enjoy your photos and the memories they hold for you and your families.
These are some photos from one of my first photo shoots at Mousehold Heath (somewhere I kept meaning to walk round , I finally got there with my camera!)
