First birthday photoshoot

I joined this sweet family on the eve of their baby’s first birthday…Adorable doesn’t even begin to describe this girl!  They had been given a gift voucher as a present and I was so pleased to meet them on this visit to Sheffield.  Hope the birthday celebrations were as special as the birthday girl herself 🙂 Here are a few of my favourite shots from our little get together.

First up, playtime with balloons – there is simply nothing better when you’re 364 days old!




The weather was kind to us so we took a little stroll… And got some cute pictures of her longest walk!

Then back to base for Sunday dinner and cuddles with special people.  And, no doubt, more balloons!

Sue’s 70th birthday celebration

I always enjoy photographing family gatherings – and this was a very special occasion indeed, celebrating the lovely Sue’s 70th birthday!  Four beautiful grandchildren, and a lot of laughter in this scenic Sheffield garden, ensured there was so much to photograph I could have stayed long into the night… Here are just a few of my favourite shots from our party.
