Well I am not going to lie, 2 year olds can be hard work to photograph!  I have one myself and I know what they can be like!! But I am always determined to get the shots we need from the session and today was no exception!!!  So with a little coaxing, lots of toys and even some bribery we got there in the end!

Baby C is 1 year old! | Nottinghamshire Cake Smash Photographer

by

You all know how much I love seeing my newborns back in the studio again when they have grown, well today was no exception!! Baby C visited me this time last year on another super hot day in July, much like today.  I am amazed, she had lots of very dark hair when she was a newborn and now she’s so blonde!!  You can so tell its her though as her eyes are still very much the same.  We had some cake, we had some bathtime, we had some bubbles and we played with some skittles and blocks,  What more could a 1 year old wish for!!!  Happy Birthday Baby C!

This is J!  A little firecracker! Full of personality and not using my props as conventionally as most of my little visitors but never the less rocking her session anyway! Mixing it up with a mini cakesmash at the end!!  I am pretty sure that you can tell from the images that she had fun 🙂

A day in the Countryside! | Beauvale Priory Vintage Fair | Victoria Bradley Photography

by

After having such bad weather yesterday it was a welcome sight to wake up to a fantastic blue sky today.  I was running a bit late this morning as we moved house last week and the studio contents are currently in a big heap in the play room whilst the studio is fitted out.  I finally managed to find everything I needed and arrived at Beauvale Priory with about 10 minutes to spare!  A quick set-up and I was ready for the 10am start!  I really wasn’t sure what to expect of the fair as I hadn’t been to one there before.  When I arrived however I knew it was going to be busy as it was before 10am and it was already buzzing with people. Please excuse the poor quality taken on my phone but this was my stall :-

I met lots of new people today along with seeing some of my previous brides and grooms which was lovely as they now have little ones too 🙂  There were lots of other stalls today too, Barlow’s the butcher who had the biggest queue for hours as nearly everyone wanted some of their delicious hog roast.  The Beauvale Priory bar which again was very busy, ummmm I wonder why?!!!! The Tea room was also very busy, cake need I say more!! The Doggie Deli from Kimberley who made all of the doggies very happy!! Debby Bears & Crafts selling cute mohair bears and crafts. Country Craft Products selling lots of cute handmade gifts. There was a fantastic vintage furniture stall and many many more.

There were guided tours of the Farm & Priory along with lots of fun for the kids and adults!

I had a visit at lunchtime from my gorgeous family 🙂 My two little ones soon located the free sweets jar and got stuck in!!!!  They also enjoyed some ice cream and had their face’s painted too 🙂 The weather was glorious all day. I came home at 4pm and we had a BBQ. Afterwards it then started hailing with thunder & lightening, good old British weather!!!!!

I am looking forward to the next fair which is on the First Sunday of December from 10am – 4pm, don’t miss it!!

          victoria_bradley-photography-header.jpg

          We have recently changed our packages to cater for the changing needs of our customers. We have found that most of our customers are mainly interested in having an all inclusive package which gives them the digital version of the images from their session so they can decide what they would like to print in their own timescale. No more agonising over which images to choose as you will have them all ready for you to print as and when you want and as many times as you want to!

          The new all inclusive packages include all of the images from the session.  They are high quality, fully edited, high resolution images on a disc which will print beautifully up to poster size provided with my permission to print the images. All packages also include all of your images printed as a 6″ x 4″ print. I will also provide information on printing an where to get the best quality prints.

          Please note that if you have already booked a session with me then you will have the choice to take the new package or stay on the the package that you have already booked.

          I offer a range of different studio sessions which are detailed on the pricing page of our website.

          All of the sessions include use of props, backdrops, headbands, hats etc, session planning time and image editing time (which usually runs into hours!)

          Newborn package –  £399 Includes high res disc + all images printed as 6″ x 4″‘s as detailed above
          All other packages – £250 Includes high res disc + all images printed as 6″ x 4″‘s as detailed above
