I know it’s that time of year again who would believe it’s almost February, seems like christmas was still only yesterday. But it wasn’t it’s that time of year when we all show our loved ones how much they mean to us. Although we do that every day don’t we? Hmmm.
This year I thought I’d offer something for all those couples out their will little one’s struggling for present ideas especially if the budget is tight after christmas but you want to give them a little something as a small reminder that their always in your heart.
Why not do a little something from the kids. Which is why I came up with a mini session valentines day set which we will be running this coming Saturday at our home studio in Ickwell, Bedfordshire. With lots of pretty love hearts, maybe even a few balloons for the boys. The sessions are short as they are mini sessions but they include 3 beautiful high resolution digital images of your choice, which you could use to make a lovely photo frame or photo collage for your partner/wife or husband. Keyring’s, mugs the list is endless.
So why not do something a little different this year and book a valentines day mini session. Contact us today via email.
Lots of Love

Who doesn’t love up to date images of their beautiful little ones. We all forget how quickly they change and grow up whilst we’re all busy with our day to day life’s we sometimes forget to capture those special moments and milestone, before you know it we’ve missed them and their 25 married and have their own children and are no longer our “babies”.
Try and make time to fit in an up to date photo shoot it doesn’t have to be the whole family even if it’s just the kids capturing them as they grow, changing their hair colour and styles don’t let those moments be missed. Capture them and frame them let them tell the stories on your walls in big and beautiful wall art let them be the talking point when family and friends come over.
I recently did a portraits mini session day and it was such a hit with my clients. They got to enjoy watching their kids pose and smile in front of the camera in our home studio which is tucked away in the countryside (Ickwell) I spent my time making sure all children feel at ease and comfort in front of the camera whether this means we sit talk and play for 20 minutes before shooting then that is what we do because I want your images to be natural fun calm and relaxed showing off everyone in their true character.
So why not start 2017 with a beautiful portrait session for you and your family up dating that old family picture and replacing it with the characters you all are now. Let it hang in true beauty around the house and let your friends and family be jealous they haven’t got one.

Where do I even begin?
I honestly cannot believe its the end of my first year in my little studio, I remember the weeks and weeks my Dad spent building it last summer and how I must have gone on and one at him every day to hurry up and finish it so I could start using it. It’s honestly been one of the best years for myself and my little business.
Having a space which is mine and I can have how I want, being able to display all my work so clients can see the wall art and products I offer. Having different props for different sessions and colours. Vintage style props, different backdrops, girly headbands and dresses. Having the freedom to offer my
clients as much as I can has truly been amazing.
When I haven’t been at the studio I’ve been out shooting for my wedding clients who again without them I wouldn’t be where I am today and I have to thank them also. I’ve had the most amazing summer with so many different weddings in lots of lovely venues and locations.
Heres to many more years of shooting fanatic images and working with the most amazing clients… Maybe even a studio extension in a few years time who knows?

I have to say I love an October wedding the autumn season is by far one of my favourites. The leaves are turning, the weather gets colder for those cosy jumpers and the beautiful orange and red tones start coming out.
Tom and Kati got married on October 3rd 2015 their day was absolutely beautiful, with lovely clear blue sky, wonderful family and friends surrounding them and just the purest love.
Their wedding day was held in Stevenage where Kati was from, they had their ceremony at their local church before going to a near by hotel for their sit down meal and evening party. Their bridal party wore stunning navy blue dresses finished with orange flowers, along with the ushers and best men who wore blue suits and orange bow ties the colours worked so well together.
Their venue was finished with the same colours and even had a little bit of halloween in it with mini pumpkins around the venue.
I hope you’ve enjoyed your first year together Mr and Mrs Marlow x
Harriet, Steven and little taylor came to visit me last week at the studio. We had some fun for sure, mainly trying to entertain Taylor as he wasn’t to keen on having his photo taken. I’m not sure why as he’s gorgeous with lovely blonde hair and big blue eyes.
We spent a while playing games and warming Taylor up to the idea of having his photo taken and my god when he did start laughing and smiling he was so cute! Plus his mum and dad were fab and didn’t stress as I assured them we would get there in the end.
Both Harriet and Steven were great! So happy to be there and were a pleasure to photograph and capture with their special little boy, their first family portrait for Taylor’s 1st Birthday. A game of playing peak a boo, singing and a balloon or two to help entertain Taylor but wasn’t it just worth it.

I knew I was going to get along with Christian and Sally from our very first meeting they were both so friendly, kind and excited for their big day. Talking me though all their plans for the day and ideas. I couldn’t wait to shoot their day for them especially with a different location from normal.
Both Sally and Christian love their water sports and spend a lot of time at Box End Kempston so it only made sense to hold their special day in a place which was special to them and god did it pay off?
The venue looked stunning with all their finishing touches, sunflowers throughout the venue, fairy lights scattered around and so many personal handmade touches to their tables. Arriving to the venue in the beautiful “Mary Jane” Sally looked out of this world arriving with her Father. Their bridal party also played a big part in their day helping get ready and celebrate their day.
After a ceremony full of so much love and beautiful readings from their children, will had so much open space for some couple shots and I made sure we got use of everything we could as mad as Sally and Christian thought I was when asking them to get in a field of grass! The
shots paid off.
A wedding full of love, laugher, dancing, fun and special moments. Thank you for choosing me to capture your special day.

It was simply love.. I know it sounds crazy it say it was all about love being it their wedding day and all. But Clare and Jim really were doing it because they simply love each other.
With their close family and friends, you could see the true beauty in their relationship throughout the whole day. Their wedding day was held in Cambridgeshire. With the girls getting ready at the Robinson College where I was able to get some stunning shots of the girls all made up before we headed off for the ceremony.
Their reception was then held at The Bourn Golf Club. Where we were surrounded by a lovely little lake and bridge.. lots of trees and fields which where the perfect backdrop for photographs.
Whilst the guests enjoyed champagne and canapé’s, Myself and the new Mr and Mrs Hodge, went off for some Bride and Groom Shots and we were definitely lucky with the beautiful sunny weather.
Back to their guests to continue enjoying their party celebrations in true style.
Clare and Jim, thank you for letting me be apart of your day, it was an honour.’
Laura and Dominic went with a simple wedding. Something that wasn’t all about how many guests they had or how much they spent on their day, but about the love they have for each other.
Their wedding took place at Laura’s mum and dads house where they had a marquee set up. Laura went for a vintage style afternoon tea which looked lovely, fresh homemade cakes, canapés and homemade sloe gin. She even made her own wedding cake… How she had time for it all I’ll never know!
Her homemade bouquet was finished by her mum with fresh flowers and it was stunning. The flowers were so fresh you could smell them in the next room, lovely colorings and a pure simple finishing touch to add to Laura’s hair, make up and golden looking dress.
They had an old fashion red double deck bus to take them to their ceremony with all their guests and it made an amazing backdrop for group photos afterwards.

Sue and Andy got married at The Swan Hotel in Bedford overlooking the river Ouse. The hotel was full of character and history adding to their day.
With elegant dresses for Sue and her bridal party, detailed lace and soft colorings. The flowers had a lovely rustic look and were the perfect finishing touch.
The ceremony room had beautiful high ceiling with large open windows looking over the river. The chairs had been finished with a champagne lace ribbon, which added class.
Sue and Andy I loved your vintage and rustic styled day!
