Family Photo Shoot Plantation Gardens Norwich

Family Photo Shoot

Plantation Gardens Norwich

The journey continues and once again, I get to work with Emily and her beautiful little family. Emily and Lee had been together many years, but, as it does, life has had its ups and downs. Thankfully this lovely couple have found each other again. Lee’s little boy, Joe, and his half sister, Poppy, are totally inseparable.

The fun and games started with a walk through Norwich. We were headed to one of the city’s well hidden secrets. We went to the Plantation Gardens, a truly mysterious spot concealed in the centre of town. Living in Norfolk is perfect for photography locations. Close enough to the coast for a beach shoot, or maybe a wander round one of our beautiful country houses. Close by is Blickling Hall, such a fantastic shoot location.

In the beginning there were a few tears, but soon enough, they were replaced with laughter, as Joe and Poppy blew bubbles into my lens. Blessed once again with clear blue skies, the shoot was so much fun. The Gardens offer so many hidden areas to discover, including a zig zag staircase to climb and its beautiful pond. A wonderful playground for children and adults alike.

I am such a lucky girl to call this my job. I think working with children is very special, and I really do enjoy what I do. If you like my photographs below and would like to book a shoot, I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Birthday Cake Smash Waterloo Park Norwich

Birthday Cake Smash

George enjoyed his first birthday cake smash at Waterloo park, Norwich

It was a busy week for Joanna Killingworth Photography. Just before jetting off to Spain to shoot a wedding, I got to spend a few hours with this little chap, George, for his  Birthday Cake smash photo shoot.

Quite a few months ago, I first spoke to Georges mum Sarah, she introduced the idea of a cake smash shoot for her sons first birthday, a first for me. So I did a bit of research and came up with a few ideas. Never did I imagine the scene, as I arrived at Waterloo Park, Norwich, on the afternoon of the shoot. There stood Sarah and husband Luke with balloons and pom poms and a big red chair. I love it when a client embraces the shoot. George was happily bashing his balloons.

George was a perfect model. He smiled and played whilst we got  to know each other. As I snapped away, we decided it was time to bring on the cake. Big, blue and gooey it was too! Irresistible right? Well George was wary of such a thing and not sure if he should touch it, so gently, gently was the way to go. Finger after finger of blue icing being licked away. It wasn’t too long before, with help from the grown ups, George was munching fist fulls of delicious sponge cake and white chocolate.

After a little clean up, George joined mum and dad for some tickles and cuddles. I hope you like the photos. You were all brilliant Sarah, Luke and George.

Early Autumn Walk Mousehold Norwich Norfolk

A few relaxing hours spent walking in the warm sun on Mousehold Heath Norwich. Our Early Autumn walk.

People keep telling me summer is over. I am not ready to say goodbye to the warm sun on my face just yet.

It was such a beautiful, warm day, so I decided to go with my daughter for a walk in the local woods, Mousehold Heath. It was so relaxing walking together and spotting the early signs of autumn starting to emerge.

The sun streamed through the trees as we wandered down the winding pathways. The woodland floor was lined with orange leaves. Every twist and turn presented us with yet another clue that Autumn is well on the way.

We were bathed in such beautiful light for this early autumn walk, stopping occasionally to take photos and look closer at the delights this tranquil spot presented us with. We are so lucky to live in such a stunning and diverse part of the world.

I am going to make it my mission to take at least a day a month out of my hectic life just to absorb nature at its best as the seasons change. If you find you have some time to go on a mini adventure, why not visit Norfolk . How about a day at Felbrigg Hall or even a brisk walk by the sea at Cromer.

As a professional photographer, my work takes me to some stunning locations, both here in the uk and further afield. Are you looking for a fun, relaxed family photo shoot in your favourite part of the world? If so please get in touch and book me to spend a few hours creating some wonderful images for you to treasure. For a lifestyle shoot with me it costs £195 which includes all images on usb and permission to print.  For further information on lifestyle shoots and the services I provide please email me at jo@affinityimages.co.uk  www.affinityimages.co.uk

Lifestyle Photo Shoot with Poppy

Lifestyle Photo Shoot With Poppy Eaton Park Norwich

A Lifestyle photo shoot with Poppy.

Eaton Park in Norwich is a real gem of a shoot location. I visit this place pretty often. I shoot lots of engagement shoots here, but also do the Norwich 5k park run here regularly too. Come rain, shine or snow, there is always a good angle for a great photograph.

This visit was a little bit different. We had to be very sneaky about It. Poppy’s mum Emily, a close friend, has a birthday coming up. This shoot was a surprise. I was worried she would spill the beans, but Poppy is such a little angel and really good at keeping a secret.

It was such a perfect shoot, running around the park and picking wild flowers. Blessed with perfect light as the golden evening sunshine warmed our skin. I also had the help of my two children, Ella 10 and Jak 9. They are experts at making Poppy giggle. Maybe I should have them with me at every shoot? Or not.

I really enjoy working with children, they always touch my heart with their willingness to get involved. Poppy knows me very well, I have photographed her lots before. The first shoot was when she was only a tiny baby. She is so much fun to be around and always ready for a cuddle. Although I may be a bit biased as she is malso my goddaughter.

I love to work outside with natural light. Tonight did not disappoint with the most beautiful golden hour as the sun set. I couldn’t have asked for more. The city of Norwich sure is a fine city. Time went very fast as usual, and before I knew it, the shoot was complete and it was time to head home. I rewarded my helpers with fish and chips as a special treat…yum.

I hope you like the photographs. if you would like a shoot of your own, i’d love to hear from you.

Fun in the park with Freddy, Dexter and Digby.

Although the weather was bitterly cold and windy, it didn’t put my model, Freddy, off his photo shoot in Waterloo Park this week. We spent the morning with his dogs Digby and Dexter. If only they were as well behaved as Freddy. Digby had a mud roll the minute we arrived in the park. Good job he’s beautiful.

We found some poppies

This evening the sun started to poke its head out, so I grabbed my new camera and the kids and headed off  to the nearest poppy field (actually a poppy verge) for a little photo shoot before tea.

Here is a little taster from my shoot with Baby Rohan. This sweet little chap is only 5 weeks old, but his eyes were on the cameras all the time. A pleasure to photograph.

Baby photo shoot Poppy

Baby Photo shoot

Poppy with her mum, Emily. Its time for the baby photo shoot

Baby photo shoots are so beautiful. I’d like for you to meet little Poppy. With her masses of dark hair and beautiful big eyes, she was my perfect model.

After a very tough birth, it sure is great to hold this little angel. This surely is one of the best parts of my job. I love to get cuddles with tiny babies. Poppy is no exception, a very special little girl, she is my new little god daughter, and I look forward to being alongside her as she grows up.

My work is all about the journey. I first met Poppy’s mum when I worked with her and her partner Lee, many years ago. I was delighted to hear she was pregnant with little Poppy. When she was close to her due date, and rather round, we made a plaster cast of her bump. Then she let me paint it with face paints and obviously photograph the fun.

I set up my mini studio in my living room. Heating turned up high, a bean bag with waterproof cover, wet wipes, nappies, a selection of warm blankets and plenty of cups of tea, to hand. I use a One light set up if i am shooting at night, or a nice big natural light source if the weather permits.  See my setup here

I am sure Emily will go on to have more children, but right now, she has her hands full with this little bundle of fun. I hope you like the shoot. If you fancy having some photos of your own, I’d love to hear from you.
