365: Week Three

It seems like I started this project a long time ago but it appears I only have 21 days to show for it! This week I tried to make a little more effort (no pizza boxes this time!) and I feel happy about the result. I haven't been able to do anything super creative but those days will come and I'm learning along the way :o)

 On a different note, I discovered Lady Grey tea this week. I'm a fan.

Time for a change ♥

It's time for a change. I started this blog in January with random ramblings and a picture or two that I took every once in a while. It's 'design' if I can call it that has changed over the months to something simple - colours that I like and some indication as to who I am. My name is Rachel Tweeddale and I love to take pictures. I've decided that it's time for Rachel Tweeddale Photography to grow up a bit. I want a website and a blog that reflects who I am and what I do. I'd like it if my clients felt like they knew me because of what they read here and what they see. So expect some changes to this space and hopefully I can introduce myself to you properly in a few months time ♥

Love, R. x

Life at the station: Personal

Lately I've spent a lot of time at train stations. Mostly that's because I've been going to lovely places to see wonderful people but sometimes it feels like I'm not home enough to find my feet and get on with life. How do you feel about train stations? I like listening to the crazy things people say to strangers, their perspective on life and why they're travelling. I love seeing people getting off the train and into the embrace of those they love. I love going places, but there's nothing like coming home at the end.

I noticed a few days ago, how much my home really feels like home now. Steve and I have been married just over a year and we both moved out our family homes at the beginning of that time. When you go to University there's a funny time when you call two places home and it felt like that when we got married too. But now, my home is decidedly with Steve in Coventry, and it feels good.

Love, R. x

365: Week Two

Here's Week Two of my 365 project! I've learnt a lot in the last few weeks. Mostly that if I want to take a picture that is creative, most of the time it will require time and effort and forward planning! So my challenge this week is to think a little more about my 365s and hopefully I'll see a difference in my pictures in a week's time!

Hope you've had a great week - we're off to see Harry Potter DHP2 this evening and I can't wait! 
Love, R. x

One Whole Year: Personal

A year ago we tied the knot. I can't believe how fast it's flown. It's been an amazing year, made all the better by setting up our home together. I can't begin to say what a blessing he is, and here's to many more years as happy as this one!

Today I got home from second shooting yesterday and we had a lovely afternoon involving wine and The West Wing and percy pigs and millionaire shortbread dessert and flowers and pottery. Awesome.

So much love to my wonderful man ♥

Last week, the wonderful Alex Beadon and I took some maternity pictures of the beautiful Theresa and her lovely family. Here is a few of my favourites. Thanks so much to Alex and Theresa for having me! I hope your baby comes soon Theresa!

We took a few family shots and then focussed on Theresa. I think you'll agree she is absolutely gorgeous!

Aren't they just the cutest family?

Theresa and Tristan have the most adorable little boy!

Theresa you are insanely beautiful!

Much Love, R. x

Personal Projects

I have now completed a week of my 365 project! I am taking one picture a day for a year and uploading it to an album on my facebook page! I'll post every week the last seven pictures of this project; I'm excited to learn and to see where it will take me!

 Hope your week has been as good as mine has! Love, R. x

Liz and Stephan

Liz and Stephan are two of the nicest people you could meet. They are a beautiful couple and I am so happy to call them friends. I think this is probably my favourite shoot so far

 Feel free to leave them some love! R. x
