Well it has been snowing lots here! About another 4 or 5 inches of fresh snow last night … and that was on top of the snow from Thursday. Here’s how the studio looked this morning:
After a few photos in the garden, I took our eldest son, William, for a walk to Hockeridge woods. He loved pulling at the low hanging, snow laden branches … covering himself and me with lots of snow.
At the weekend Jo, Jake and their lovely 6 month old baby boy, Bailey, visited the studio. They braved the weather to get here, there was still several inches of snow lying on the road which meant driving was a little difficult, especially on our road in all but 4 wheel drive vehicles.
Bailey was a little darling, he was very patient and extremely well behaved – I hope he gets lots of presents from Santa!
Here are a few images from the shoot.

On Saturday, our eldest son’s school had a Christmas Fair. It was very well supported with hundreds of parents and children enjoying all that was on offer. You could buy everything from your Christmas tree and Christmas cakes through to a bacon sandwich . I spent 4 hours in Santa’s grotto – each of Santa’s visitors received a photograph of themselves with Santa! It was a pleasure to be able to help the school in this way.
Janet and Phil, a Harpenden family, visited the studio this weekend with their two boys to have a portrait shoot. They were very relaxed in front of the camera and the boys enjoyed giving piggy back rides and trying lots of different poses for me. It was a fun and fast paced shoot!
