Our Lavender Photoshoot With Mrs Shutterspeed

We are still totally buzzing from a fantastic photoshoot at Mrs Shutterspeed’s Studio in Mayfield yesterday. The girls had a great day and I managed to come home with some beautiful photos to share with you now. My 2 girls are the only females in the whole family that don’t like having their photos taken, it’s an absolute nightmare! To give you an idea of how difficult it is to take a photo of them, a commercial photographer we were on a shoot with a few months ago actually said it was the least successful shoot in the 22 years he had been a photographer, and recently we had to cut a shoot short because both girls were screaming blue murder refusing to have their photos taken! I had given up all hopes of getting some beautiful professional shots of the girls.

This is what makes Lorna of Mrs Shutterspeed so different. It helps having a spacious studio with a selection of backdrops and beautiful props, a state of the art editing suite and idyllic surroundings at her Mayfield studio, but what really sets Lorna apart as a brilliant children’s photographer is quite simple… She is absolutely bloody bonkers. She will go to great lengths to get your children laughing and will not stop until you have the perfect photos to cherish forever. It’s impossible not to enjoy the experience and you are guaranteed to leave knowing you have some beautiful photos of your children to share with the family. She has very kindly agreed to put together a special promotion for the readers of Scarlett and Me so check out the offer below!

Here are a few of my favourite snaps of the day. I love them because they are all so natural – of course they weren’t, but that’s the art of a truly brilliant lifestyle photographer…

Here I was actually having a serious portrait session and was suddenly climbed on by both girls, Lorna kept snapping away and ended up getting my favourite pic of the day!

Whilst I was there, Lorna took delivery of her latest collection of props for new baby shoots, they were just magical and made me wish I had got the girls photographed when they were still so tiny!

Lorna has a fantastic promotion on at the moment that you can take advantage of just by mentioning this blog.
