I know 'Photos of the Year' type posts are meant to be limited to a small amount of shots (I have a great deal of respect for photographers who can choose 10!) but I've gone for a smaller amount of shots in a variety of categories! 2015 has been a fun and varied year with lots of exciting and beautiful things to capture. Spring and summer seemed particularly long this year and so there were more opportunities for outdoor photos. I also had the great joy of becoming an Aunt too (my new nephew Eli makes an appearance below).
To all who I've had the privilege of working with this last year, thank you!
Some lovely locations locally and further down the country (a beautifully sunny Bristol!). Congratulations to all this years couples x
Flora and Fauna...
As ever, its a real pleasure to live in Cumbria with easy access to the Lakes. There were also some new (furry) additions to the residents at Dalemain Mill that will probably mean that next year's 'fav photos' will feature less birds!
Local Businesses and Organisations...
Thanks to Creations Hair and Beauty Salon, MJ Cabinetmakers, Eden Boutique, and The Rendezvous Restaurant for some fantastic sessions this year. As always, it's been great to work with Ullswater Community College again this year and join in with all the wonderful things they do.
Sessions with some lovely people...
Thanks to all the lovely people I've spent time with this year - I look forward to seeing some of you again soon! And of course, welcome to Eli!
Hospice at Home...
Lastly... a little splash of colour at two Hospice at Home Colour Runs. If you weren't involved this last year and live in Cumbria I'd definitely recommend signing up for the Carlisle or Penrith event. As you can see, it's amazingly fun!
There may or may not be a film show reel of the year too but just in case - a belated Happy New Year! Here's to an equally wonderful 2016
It was a few months ago (but fairly similar weather!) that Sarah and Andy were married at Low House in Armathwaite. It was a lovely, relaxed day with lots of children running around the grounds of the beautiful house. The setting of Low House was fantastic with such a comfortable feel and yet with real attention to detail - and a very warm welcome from the owners Charles and Sara Ecroyd.
I've had the pleasure of photographing Sarah a couple of times and the rest of the family at their engagement sitting which was wonderful. It's so lovely to get to know couples before the wedding and it makes the photo-taking experience even more special.
Here are a couple from the day:
