A fun new born photo session in Crystal Palace

Friday LOVE VIBES xx

Super cuteness alert! I was so thrilled when one of my amazing clients got in touch before Xmas to purchase a photo session as a gift for her brother + sister in law and their new arrival. Just down the road from my studio in Crystal Palace I met Mila and we had such fun! She was the cutest little bean and just a few days young. 

I always find it more comfortable to visit my clients for newborn sessions so everything is familiar, comfortable and to hand +  I was super delighted when I received a wonderful 'Thank you' email from Marta and incredible review of our session <3 xx

"When our daughter Mila was born, my brother and sister-in-law gave us this amazing gift of a baby photography session with Jackie. 

Jackie made the session a really fun afternoon for all of us, including Mila! She is very easy going, fun and flexible and and completely works around baby special schedules. 

Apart from the stunning framed picture that we got as part of the gift, we also purchased a lovely print box with our favourite pics that includes the digital images too. We are already using these images as presents to Mila's grandparents and they are proving a hit!

We would highly recommend Jackie for a baby photography session. 

Thank you so much MNM :-) xx excited to watch your family grow xx

Photo Workshop fun!!

Bells & Whistles

Deep in the gorgeous Hampshire countryside, intrepid adventures armed with their cameras and a great sense of humour last week explored their locale as we got to grips with our F-stops, shutter speed, ISO + the ingredients which go in to creating a photograph.

"good fun and we have learnt lots, and feel in control of our cameras again" Nelly

"good fun and we have learnt lots, and feel in control of our cameras again" Nelly

Cris + Nelly were super students as we spent the day improving skills and enjoying "Haleluya" moments :-) AND we got to work amongst a super beautiful setting with amazing details and plants!! 

Sometimes it's reconnecting the dots + allowing ourselves some space + time to reconnect with the process + then the craft of using our cameras, our eyes + thinking in a different way. Sometimes it's concentrating on what's right in front of us without distraction + allowing our subconscious to feel - "I know this! I know this...Ahh I got it" OR "ahh thats how it works!!" (Even if that process can feel like walking throughtreacle)

Cris created this awesome video below of some of her footage and pictures from our day + I just love it, so please take a peek! She's very clever!

Cris created this awesome video of our photography workshop - I LOVE it!! so fun that we're hiding from the camera lol ©CrisBlack2017

With Cris + Nelly we tailored the day specifically to their experience, level + aims for the day + all my photo workshops are tailored to each student and more often than not the handbook that accompanies a new camera or old camera that's being rediscovered, feels like it's written in gobbledygooke and until you get out there in the field/city/beach (delete as appropriate) the bits don't quite fit together.

Each location I teach in provides different gems and different challenges and is really exciting as we work our way through picture taking and the recipe involved in enabling us a greater understanding of our camera + pushing us out of our comfort zone + through boundaries.

I even managed to sneak a few pictures from our workshop below! :-) Enjoy xx

I have had so much fun taking stills since Friday and I have the confidence to try now! Thankyou
