sarah & chris' engagement shoot in the gardens

Written by Angela Penn on January 5th, 2015.      0 comments


You'd be hard pressed to find a lovelier setting than our very own Christchurch Botanic Gardens.  It has everything you could want in a photographic backdrop and outside the museum on a beautiful afternoon, I met Sarah & Chris for the very first time and they were amazing in front of the camera!  Check them out.  :)

jo & mark plus ONE!

It was the most gorgeous day on Saturday - I had a portrait shoot at home in the morning, the sun was shining, I got my washing out and I was really looking forward to meeting Jo & Mark that afternoon as we'd already had to put off their engagement shoot because of bad weather.  So when I turned up at the gardens, I saw the clouds, heard the thunder and went back to my car for the umbrella.  A little bit of rain was NOT going to put us off!

Meeting them both was fantastic but they I spied an extra pair of cute wee legs (sorry Mark, not yours) and they belonged to the beautiful Isabella, Jo and Mark's gorgeous wee girl.  What a bright spark - this kid has an awesome vocabulary and could probably (in the right situation, where the scary photographer lady wanted to 'borrow' your Dora backpack) talk the hind legs off anyone!  With a dad as lovely as Mark and a mum as beautiful as Jo, this kid is bound for great things.

So off for a trek around the gardens, trying to find some shelter - these raindrops were getting BIG!

So we set off for our walk...

And it wouldn't be a walk in the park (haha) without "one... two... THREE!".  I even think I see Mark getting in on the action!

I LOVE the way Isabella stares adoringly into her daddy's eyes.

With spring comes new life. Guess what they found by the pond?

"There she is!".  Says Isabella.

Then it was time for some engagement photos of mum and dad.... not enough time though - it started pouring down so we called it a day.

Heather & Doug's studio couples shoot

Written by on July 9th, 2013.      0 comments

Wowzers.  These guys are awesome.  Not only are they great to photograph, they take amazing photos too!  This is Heather & Doug of Heather Ellis Photography & DpointR Photography - both extremely talented on both sides of the camera, as it turns out! I must admit I was a tad nervous before they got here... Okay okay, I was still shaking when I made them coffee but as soon as the camera started clicking I was in the zone!  Too much fun.  x

This is where I was trying to make them laugh, by laughing myself but apparently I ended up sounding like Santa.

Wow.  I had so much fun with these guys on Thursday night at Taylor's Mistake.  They are awesome, and don't they make a gorgeous family!  Kylie giggled the whole way through the shoot (saying she's not photogenic, didn't like photos of herself).  What-EVER!  You guys are CUTE!!!

First off, check out their fusion video.

Mr grumpy. Actually he wasn't grumpy at all.  He'd just woken up so he was being exactly how a baby is meant to be when they wake up in the middle of the field and he's faced with a huge camera and expected to smile on demand.
