Howletts Zoo Kent – Isabella’s outing to the Zoo

I met up with my friend and her daughter Isabella last weekend at Howletts Zoo  at Bekesbourne near Canterbury in Kent.  I hadn’t seen Isabella for a while so she was a little timid at first – but it didn’t last long!  She really is a very sweet little girl and it was fascinating to watch her reaction to the animals.  Having a 22 year old son, who is about to fly the nest to live in Jersey (!), you forget how little they once were and the hunger they have to take in new experiences.  These are special times as they grow up so quickly. Even though Isabella is only 16 months old, there was lots for her to see and do and there were plenty of animals on view. These are just a few of my favourite images from the day…. ‘that’s funny – where’s my drink gone?!” […]

Kent Engagment Photography – Lauren & Michael

I met up with Lauren and Michael two weeks ago at my home in Fordwich in Kent.  It was touch and go and Lauren and i were in email contact each day with weather forecast updates!  Luckily it stayed dry and we even had some sunshine!! Lauren and and Michael met whilst studying Fine Art at the University for the Creative Arts, Canterbury (UCA) and got engaged while touring New Zealand together.  They live out of area now, so it was nice for them to come back to the place where they first met! I’ve mentioned it in previous posts, but I love the landscape in Fordwich and  it’s quite fascinating to see the rate of how quickly it changes.  I’m always looking for different angles and locations to shoot in the area – and the coppice woods gives such a variety of colour and texture it’s not difficult to be inspired! After a slightly tentative start, Lauren and Michael relaxed into their engagement shoot wonderfully!  Here are a few of my favourites from the afternoon. […]
