Wow is pretty much all I can say!  Last week I was totally blown away by a group of young women from The Regis School (you can visit their website here) and their fantastic teacher when I went along to photograph their A level textiles projects & fashion show.  My niece is one of the students and as she has kindly agreed to make my wedding dress for me, (eeeek… how excited am I!!!?) as a favour, I went along to capture her with her friends modelling their amazing creations.  Around 20 or so years ago we made baby bibs out of some terry-towling in our textiles class and the more advanced did some ribbon edging around them!  Haha – these girls are streets ahead of that!  Honestly, from the beautiful black swan to unbelievably gorgeous wedding gowns, there was something for everyone.  Although there’s no way I could pick a favourite – I loved them all!!  Oh and thanks to another wonderfully creative lady – Lou of Daisies in Middleton-on-Sea for the last minute bouquet she did up for me xx

The fashion show was so much fun too – not just the A-level students but talent from all over the school, including my other niece in her fabulous party dress that she made herself and lots of upcycled uniforms having a make-over too.  I think I can safely say my wedding dress is in very safe & creative hands!  Here are some of my favourite photos of the girls… I really hope they come in handy for their portfolios and they all get the top grades they so rightfully deserve for such wonderful work xx

A few weeks back my gorgeous nieces agreed to let me take a few snaps of them with their boyfriends.  I wanted to do the shoot mainly because they are just sooo beautiful and I adore them but also because they both have such great boyfriends and I wanted to capture this crazy little thing called love for them… ❤

We were going to go to the old barn I found a while back for some photos then head off to a wheat field somewhere for a few more but as luck had it we found a wheat field right next to the old barn!  We of course prayed for some of that delicious golden evening sunlight but instead we had a couple of rain showers and lots of moody clouds, ah well… not much we can do about that, this is the UK after all!

Thanks guys for being so much fun and so laid back and totally gorgeous and awesome!

Love you all xx

 

 

Unni was over on holiday from Norway with her girls, so it absolutely  was not allowed to rain last Friday when she had booked her shoot as it was the only day we could both do while she was in the UK!  Well… it was dry at least, but jeez weez was it windy!!  We did our best to stay sheltered from it but it wasn’t easy…!  The girls were so much fun and Unni is over the moon with the results which is always music to my ears (especially when I was so worried the wind would ruin every shot with hair in their faces or blowing up in the air or their eyes closed!)…  Here are some of my favourites…

 

Sadly we did not jet off to the real L.A for this shoot, rather the L.A as in Littlehampton as us locals call it 😉  Great location though and award winning cafe with delicious fish & chips and cakes!  Laura won this photoshoot in a raffle – I donated it a while back to Lurcher SOS to help raise much needed funds to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome hounds (as an owner of 3 rescue hounds I always help out when I can with fundraising for these beautiful dogs…)  It’s also a subject close to their hearts as they rescued Gladys the gorgeous greyhound from Lurcher SOS themselves, and she is such a star too!  I wanted to take her home with me!!  I had a really fun morning – Laura & Paul’s daughters reminded me a bit of myself and my sister when we were younger!  The game they played with one behind the other, being the arms and hands for her sister – we used to do that too 🙂

I had a lovely email from Laura today that I hope she won’t mind me sharing…

“Oh my goodness!  Those photos are fantastic Nicki, thank you so much.  It is going to be so hard to choose……..I even like the one of me outside the Cafe – and I NEVER like photographs of me! 
E looks particularly beautiful in many of them – I find it hard to recognise my beautiful baby in the very grown up young lady you have captured – and then I see the one of her and F falling off the log, and, yep…there she is!  You have also captured F’s wilder, slightly less lady-like side perfectly….I love them!  As for the one’s of Gladys…….just perfect.”

Thank you Laura for your kind words, it really was a pleasure!  Here are some of my favs….

Nothing beats watching greys running – OFF the track!

Just to prove it, I had a great shot like the one above but Gladys wasn’t in it and Paul said – that’s no good, only 4 fifths of the family in it! 😉

Their oldest daughter caught un-aware…

I have to say it – Autumn is my favourite season!  I love Spring and hazy summer evenings too but the colours in Autumn are so vibrant and bright and utterly gorgeous!  So when Suzette asked me for a shoot of her and her girls in amongst the Autumn leaves I couldn’t wait 🙂  She wanted really natural shots of the 3 of them having fun together and was unsure of any close up portraits but was willing to give it a go and thankfully is very pleased with the results!  I am too – they were such fun to work with!

Here are some of my favs…
