Caroline & Rak’s Big Day!

Lovely testimonial from Caroline & Rak ...

"From the second we met Jo we knew she was the photographer for us. As Actors we are both used to having our photos taken so had a very high standard in terms of choosing a photographer for our Wedding and Jo's work really speaks for itself. We love the way she is able to capture perfectly not just the official photos, but little moments and looks that others might have missed. She was a calming presence on the day, whilst still being forceful enough to deal with a large, over excited wedding party! She was completely unobtrusive but still made sure she got all of the shots that we wanted and helped us to keep things flowing on the day. When we sneaked away for our 'Romantic' shots she made sure that we were relaxed and really gave us the time to have a moment with each other as well as having our photos taken. We couldn't believe just how fast our Wedding Album was ready for us to view and also the amount of beautiful photos she has given us. Everyone has commented on how wonderful they are and there is not one bad photo of anyone - she has managed to capture people at their absolute best. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone, thank you Jo!"

Out & About – Ramsgate Harbour & Wartime Tunnels Kent

So here are some pics of my out and about trip to Ramsgate Harbour, which is both stunning and of great historical interest. Specifically today there was a vintage fair heralding old war time clothes and equipment. People were there in there droves enjoying the glorious scenic view over glasses of wine, whilst others were waiving their England flags in participation of the Vera Lynn platform performance. I would definitely recommend a visit! Great cafes and leisure boat rides and of course the wonderful sandy coastline.
  The construction of Ramsgate Harbour began in 1749 and was completed in about 1850. The two most influential architects of the Harbour were father and son John Shaw and John Shaw Jr, who designed the clockhouse, the obelisk, the lighthouse and the Jacob's Ladder steps.
The Harbour has the unique distinction of being the only harbour in the United Kingdom awarded the right to call itself a Royal Harbour. This was bestowed by King George IV after he was taken by the hospitality shown by the people of Ramsgate when he used the harbour to depart and return with the Royal Yacht Squadron in 1821.
Because of its proximity to mainland Europe, Ramsgate was a chief embarkation point both during the Napoleonic Wars and for the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940. The ferry terminal area is built upon reclaimed land.

Newborn Olivia – 9 days old

Olivia was such a gorgeous little darling, cute heart shaped face and a thick mass of dark brown hair. She was very sleepy when she arrived, so I could move straight on to the first poses on the blankets, she settled straight away, which meant I could switch poses and use different coloured soft blankets, headbands and hats easily. She really was so comfortable and peaceful in each position. I had created a few new prop sets for Olivia which are shown in the gallery below.  The photoshoot took the usual 4 hours and I was able to take so many pictures, creating a wonderful gallery for little one's new Mummy & Daddy.
