The first 12 weeks…

Becoming parent’s is easily the toughest thing we’ve ever experienced – nothing at all prepared us for it & no matter how much we read, researched or discussed, we were still massively shell shocked.

It’s scary, it’s exhausting & it’s at times stressful, but once you get past the difficult learning curve, it’s incredible.

Our new arrival

We don’t often share personal news on the blog but as so many recent clients have no doubt noticed we’ve been expecting a new addition to the Fazackarley family. Well a few weeks ago Heather and I welcomed our baby daughter Robyn Rose Fazackarley!

Leah & Adam’s Newspaper

A few weeks ago a large envelope dropped through my door containing a thank you card from Leah and Adam (you might remember I shot their beautiful wedding back in August), but also inside the envelope was an incredible handmade newspaper full of all the photographs I took at their wedding! Leah & Adam had made the paper to send out as a thank you to all their wedding guests and it’s such a cool idea. Take a look at their handiwork below – these two are seriously creative!

And a massive thanks to Leah & Adam – your newspaper made my day! x

Laura & Pete

A few weeks ago the fabulous Laura & Pete from Lawson Photography came to Brighton, It was Laura’s birthday & they wanted some photographs taken! We wandered the streets of Brighton  doing all the touristy things & still found time to take some pretty pictures too!

Now, not only are Pete & Laura really good friends of mine, they are also two of the most talented photographers in the country – so it was ultra important that these pictures be good, my reputation depends on it!

Hope you enjoy, & if you do, please leave a comment!

Sarah

Last Sunday, I had a shoot scheduled with my great friend,  Hayley (who is a fab Cambridge Wedding Photographer!!) & the lovely Heather, We were due to be working with a model, in a similar way as with the poppy shoot from a few months back, but at the last minute our model had to pull out, Luckily Sarah was more than eager to make the trip down from London to hang out with us for the day! Seriously, how cool was that of her to pose for us!! I think she did a fab job as a model for the day! Thanks Sarah!!

To make things even more interesting Sarah jumped into her wedding dress, (from her wedding, the month before) & we wandered around Brighton for a bridal session, Starting at Brighton Pier & wandering through the lanes towards the fabulously busy North Laine, attracting more attention than I thought was possible in the liberalest of all Cities!! Seriously, naked dudes attract less attention than we did! Whats up with that?!?

& at one stage we even had a tourist asking to pose for pictures…Guess he thought Sarah was a celebrity!! Crazy!

Anyway, it was a great fun day, we hunted for the gorgeous light & we found some fantastic locations on the way, that I will definitely be using in the future, although a certain smelly doorway will never be used again. EVER.

So, without further ado, here are what a few of you have been waiting (impatiently) for!!

Poppies

We went exploring with Rachel and found an incredibly beautiful Poppy field just outside of Brighton.

It’s impossible to to take a bad photograph when your location & model look this good.

Bridal Sessions are becoming really popular as, for brides on their wedding day, striking the balance between amazing portraits, getting their wedding dress dirty and taking time away from their guests is difficult.

So booking a bridal session after the wedding is a brilliant excuse to get back into the dress and spend time creating beautiful photographs, exploring locations we wouldn’t have a chance to on the day and have some fun.

Of course, grooms can be invited too!
