corina & daryl's engagement/family shoot at the botanic gardens

Written by Angela Penn on June 11th, 2014.      0 comments


Corina and Daryl have been coming to me for family photos for over a year now - their beautiful daughter Jade was part of my Baby Grow programme and I just love seeing my families grow! So it gives me huge warm fuzzies to be asked to be Corina and Daryl's wedding photographer and I know there will be a few tears as this gorgeous couple says their vows in October.  They are super cute together and have made the most beautiful baby girl!  This wee family have become very special to me.  Anyway enough of my blathering on... here are a wee selection of their engagement photos from last month.  It was a beautiful Autumn afternoon with the most gorgeous light... ahhhhh.

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.
