Kath and Dave: Coombe Abbey Couple Portraits

I know, I know. I'm a greedy person. When I only had seven minutes with Kath and Dave on Tuesday we decided it would be a good idea to spend a little longer on Wednesday :o) We went to one of my favourite places, Coombe Abbey for their portraits. We arrived when the sun was already low in the sky and I had such a great time with these two. You can just tell how good they are together, I had a smile on my face the whole time as I edited their pictures!

Dave and Kath had their pictures 'just because' and I love that. These images celebrate who they are and how they feel about each other. So you two, I hope you enjoy them for years to come.

Much love, R. x

Seven Minutes

Do you ever just feel like doing something, so much that you try and work out how you could possibly make it happen? I was walking along at about ten to six, this gorgeous light streaming through the trees. I just really really wanted to be taking pictures. So much, that I just picked up the phone and phoned a couple of good friends of mine. An hour until sunset, we still had time. At 18:35 we got to a pretty place close to us and spent about seven minutes taking pictures before it got too dark. Was it a crazy idea? A little bit. But I had so much fun we're going to do it properly tomorrow :o)

 Happy Tuesday!

Love, R. x

Raisin and Oatmeal Cookies: Personal

My lovely friend Nai moved just around the corner a few weeks ago and I've really enjoyed catching up with her. It's one of the things I love about city living, that I have friends just minutes away :o)

I made these Hummingbird Bakery oatmeal and raisin cookies a little while back and they're the first cookies I've made at home and really enjoyed. I mean, really enjoyed. Everyone who tried them agreed with me so I say they're worth a go!

 Have you got any cookie recipes that turned out a treat?

Love, R. x

p.s. I got a formspring account today! So if you fancy asking me what my favourite cookies are (right now raisin and oatmeal!) or anything about photography or my pictures, I'll do my very best to answer! Check it out here.

Warwickshire Engagement: Matt and Miriam (Part 2)

If you missed part one of Matt and Miriam's engagement session, you can find it here! This shoot was filled with love and adventure - I forgot to mention it before but I got into a river at one point! These two were so easy in front of the camera and their love for each other is just so obvious I don't think I need to say any more.

Happy Friday! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them! Matt and Miriam, I just can't wait for your wedding next year!

Love, R. x
