Here’s a recent Canterbury Family Photography shoot I did for Craig, Jo and their little Daughter Verity. This session was bought as a present for Jo’s birthday from her Bother. They wanted their family life captured at home in Canterbury. Verity was 4 months old and was incredible throughout the time I was with them- no tears just smiles! It was a pleasure being around this family for an hour, they made me feel so welcome and they showed so much appreciation for their little one! I’ve chosen my favourite images out of the ones I took. Jo emailed me to say “Hi Olly, Thank you so much for the beautiful photos that you took. Thank you, Jo x”
It was an absolute privilege to photograph this Christmas family photo shoot in Chartham, near Canterbury in Kent. Ben and Jo wanted a mixture of pictures in their house with their Christmas jumpers on and decorations up and then some out and about in Chartham. Jo said “When our son Teddy came into our lives, we knew we wanted to capture his precious early days and our first memories as a new family in a special way – our first Christmas together felt like the perfect time. Our photo shoot with Olly was not only unique and creative, but we also felt listened to and relaxed, which meant our photos tell a genuine story. We can’t wait to show them to Ted and relive this lovely morning! We heartily recommend Olly to anyone considering a family photo shoot.”
I photographed 3 day old Rudy in Canterbury with his Parents Helen & Stuart. Helen’s Mum booked me to do the photography as a present for the family. Afterwards Helen sent me this review “We had our new baby photographed by Olly and It was so relaxed and laid back- With images more beautiful than I’d even imagined. I’d certainly recommend his services without a second thought.”
I spent a lovely Summer’s morning with Robert, Alison and their two children at Whitstable Beach in Kent for their family photo shoot. They wanted some pictures to remind themselves of life in Whitstable as they are relocating to the North very soon. They walked along the beach, played a game of piggy in the middle and threw stones into the sea. A lovely morning and a great family! Alison emailed me with this lovely review: “Working with Olly was good fun. Initially we were a bit uncertain about being natural for the camera but Olly made light conversation with us, in no time we all in the swing of it. The time flew by quickly, we a had a great time and we got some very memorable photos to remember our time in Whitstsble! Olly is a true professional, he has a fresh look on family photos!”
Caleb proposed to Sarah in Blean Woods, Canterbury with lots of presents and letters leading up to her opening the ring box. We went back there a few weeks later armed with a chair, guitar and many other items to create a “living room in the woods”. Caleb and Sarah messaged me after seeing the pics to say “Olly!! Thank you, Thank you!!! We had such a good time tonight taking our time looking through the album. The shots you’ve captured, the colour quality, how you’ve framed it – just beautiful, beautiful. So chuffed with them and extremely chuffed that you’ll be doing the wedding too!”
I spent the afternoon with Dan, Kirsty and their two little boys in Whitstable, Kent. The photography package was bought by Kirsty for Dan’s birthday. They really wanted some natural and fun pictures of them in their town. So we went along the beach and then journeyed to a coffee shop afterwards where they even shouted me a mocha! A lovely family and some great memories for them to keep.
This is one of the most special photo shoots I’ve done as it was for my first child! Caleb was born on the 23rd November 2012 weighing 7lbs 6oz at the William Harvery Hospital in Ashford. We set up our bedroom as the location for this photo shoot. Unfortunately the model wasn’t too cooperative and decided that he didn’t like being naked and in protest he went for a projectile wee all over our bed!! I love this little man!
