It's not often when the hunter becomes hunted - but it happened on this occasion. I gotta say having spent so long behind the camera I have a pretty good idea what to look for and have a good idea on what would look good on the camera.
With this in mind I've taken the lead and tried to direct my wife and hugged her tightly to celebrate her beauty in expectation of our baby in a few weeks time. Well, let the pictures speak for themselves.
Of course the setup was done by myself and our dear friend has taken my camera and done a pretty decent job.
It's always a special time working with a lady who's expecting a baby, but if you make that double it creates an even more interesting and more special time; especially in this occasion as they're very good friends. As such they had loads of laughter in this truly unique moment. The pictures turned out really nice and I felt they had a very good time in the process. We even had some feedback from the bumps with the occasional elbows and knees pushing outwards.
I wanted to take the opportunity to wish them a very pleasant birth experience as they're not far from their due dates. I hope everything...
It's not often that you see so much planning going into a birthday party proposal, but on this occasion it was very well planned and executed to perfection.
When Robert invited his fiancée to celebrate her birthday at a very scenic location of The Newbridge on Usk she had no idea what was really going to happen. And even when Amanda turned up, it was only a small surprise to see some of the closest friends and family celebrating with her.
Things really started heating up when Robert got behind the piano and started playing a song written to Amanda, and when he finished he got down on his knees...
As the title suggests I went down to Cardiff City Hall - or to be precise the green by the City Hall to take some pictures of a family. Admittedly it wasn't my idea - but I knew it's going to be a nice scene as I know the place quite well. Also on my way to the client I've already sussed out that the weather will stay nice and sunny for the rest of the afternoon...and it did. It was also lovely working with the family in such a nice environment and it also made them relaxed during the shoot. The little one really couldn't have been happier running around in the sunshine.
Twins are always special; that's what people say. But when you have a girl and a boy - who according to their mum even have their own language to talk to each-other (even though they're only 2 years of age) - it makes it even more special. And to top these two interesting lifes even further, they could just as well be called sleeping beauties. It's very simple: when one falls asleep the other one follow suite. :)
Over Christmas we all get to see family from around the world and this particular visit turned out to be especially nice with an improvised mini photo shoot. With no planning and no real setup I just took a few snaps and even I was amazed how well this worked. I think this really just show what a brother's love is - beautiful.
