I don't even really know where to begin with telling you about these images, partly because they're some of the images I think I might be most proud of, but also because so much of my energy went into them.
These were shot about a month and a half ago, the day after we'd moved back into our home after spending three weeks away due to bathroom renovations. Milo was only 4 months old, and fully settled into being with us by this point, but also still very much needing a lot of attention. I was pretty drained of energy, but used every last bit of what I had into this shoot, and I'm so glad I did.
Elle, from The Artful Wedding Co, got in touch a few weeks earlier, asking if I'd participate in a shoot she had had in her head for over a year. I'd wanted to work alongside Elle for quite some time, so of course I agreed. We got planning, and I knew it was going to be dreamy.
When they day came, I scooped Milo into my car (along everything I thought he could possibly need for a day out - it's like having a bloody baby!), and off we went to Rock, in North Cornwall. The weather forecast was a bit tumultuous, but we decided to go ahead with the day, and give it our best shot. In the end, the weather gods were on our side.
We went to two different locations, and spent roughly 5h shooting everything. Ione worked her magic on Kendall with beautiful hair styles and make up, and Elle had coordinated for us to have a selection of out of this world dresses. Our cake, and the rest of the edibles for the day, were all provided by Dollybird Bakes, and I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful cake in my life; I'm sure you'll agree!
Elle really is the brains behind all the elements of this shoot, so I have to take my hat off to her. She has such an eye, and her imagination was wild - but she ran with it. She's truly talented, and I really hope we get to work together a lot more in future!
Of course, Milo stole the show, and although it was quite hard work for me to shoot and look after him, he was an angel. A big thanks to the whole team on the day for keeping him occupied while I was shooting and couldn't give him my attention ... lets just say he's quite a mummy's boy!
