New Forest Engagement Photography :: Meg+Matt

You wouldn’t know it by looking at these photos, but this shoot nearly got rained out. The day before is when we’d originally scheduled it, and it poured rain from dawn to dusk. We quickly scheduled it for the following day and managed to capture that sweet autumnal glow.

I love setting up for engagement shoots. Scouting unique locations is my specialty, and in this area there is no shortage of magnificent backdrops. A broken wall, or a glimmering tree line can completely transform a photograph from your usual portrait into vibrant scene.

Meg and Matt were good sports about trekking through forest and fields as well as hopping over a fence to get some of these shots.

Sidenote: Doesn’t Meg have the most radiant smile?

New Forest Family Photography :: Hannah + Steve + Robyn

Is there anything better than Autumn in the forest? The colours around me right now are so beautiful, and when the sun is out, like it is today, it all glows this golden luminescent light. My only complaint are the short days. I really struggle with it. But a little photoshoot with a cute babe can usually lift my spirits.

This is Hannah, Steve and little Robyn. Hannah is a mama friend of mine, and Robyn and Cav are very close in age. It’s been invaluable having her input and perspective through this new season in our lives.

New Forest Family Photography :: Louise + Nathan + Jocelyn

 

This sweet family happens to our neighbours and friends. We are often given fresh eggs from their chickens.  Little Jocelyn was born about 3 weeks before Cavanaugh, and Louise and I have spent many days commiserating celebrating as we navigate new motherhood together.  It’s so much easier with friends (and lots of coffee and cake). Being right in the forest is a photographer’s dream, there is an endless choice of whimsical places. These images were taken in the field behind Louise and Nathan’s house, and their fairytale back garden.
