Animate Physiotherapy with Charlie – Commercial Photography Essex

Alongside photographing beautiful animals and gorgeous couples I also shoot some commercial Photography to help businesses in need of creating or updating their branding and advertising to the world. This might mean they need new head shots, images for their website or leaflets, or if they’ve bought a new piece of kit that they need to include in their advertising…anything and everything that helps another business on their way to success!

I’ve photographed Charlie before with her lovely horse Kaiser and last year I got to catch up with her again as we photographed her Mother Lesley with her two horses, but this time we got together to capture some images for her new business Animate Physiotherapy, focusing primarily on horses & dogs!

Over the last few years Charlie has used this time and worked hard to get qualified and set up & run her very own Physiotherapy business for horse & dog owners.  Today, Animate Physiotherapy has become very successful and popular with clients based up and down the county as Charlie continues to help their animals optimise their performance, target specific performance issues, provide pain relief for chronic conditions and promote positive outcomes following injury as well as much much more!

To ensure that she was getting the most out of her business, and to shed some insight into what she does when working on her clients animals, Charlie and I had a commercial photo session to update her online marketing images in order to boost her business brand and get a good start to the 2018 season with new clients!

If you head over to Charlie’s Facebook Page and click Like you can keep up to date with all her upcoming work, and also be the first to get involved with any competitions and helpful tips she shares to maximise the best for your furry friends.  Recently she ran a successful Easter giveaway and I’m sure there will be more in the future too, so go check her out!!

My Wedding Photography Bucket List

A friend of mine recently asked…if I had just one more wedding to photograph, what kind of wedding would I choose to shoot? I absolutely adore my job and am so thankful to all my wonderful clients who have chosen me as their wedding photographer in the past. I have loved shooting every single wedding over the last five years and I am so passionate about photographing couples in love. This question got me thinking and laughing to myself, as I really couldn’t narrow it down to just one kind of wedding… so here goes My Wedding Photography Bucket List!

If your wedding involves aaaaaaaany of the below then please GIVE ME A SHOUT!!

 I promise there will be an exclusive discount to be had.

 

 

  • A destination wedding (I love to travel and see/photograph new places so this is my ultimate no.1)
  • A wedding ceremony on a beach
  • A wedding with fairground rides (bonus if theres a merry-go-round)
  • A tipi wedding
  • Inside a castle BOOKED – Kate & Jon 2018 YAYY!
  • An elopement
  • A themed wedding (bonus if it’s Game of Thrones / 1920’s Peaky Blinders / Disney)
  • A ‘Don’t Tell the Bride’ wedding

2017 Roundup | Laura Jane Photography

Well what a year 2017 has been! I can’t believe we’re right around the corner from 2018 and I definitely say this every year but just how quick did last year go!!!

As is every year, there were a lot of highs and lows for my little family although at this stage I am more happy to remind myself of a few of the highs we’ve achieved this year…

  • Managing to secure and update our house to an even better one (in just under a year of only being in the old house!!)
  • Seeing our family grow by adding another furry member into the mix 😉
  • Enjoying a wonderful break away to the city of Rome, somewhere I have been dying to visit for the last few years!

Work has also been insane this year!! Here’s a little of what’s been going on…

  • A total of 18 Weddings shot in Essex, Suffolk and Kent in 2017, topping last years count and looking even more positive for 2018!
  • Booking so many Equestrian & Canine shoots and made tons of friends during the sessions – I love getting to know my clients & their quirky animals. One of the main reasons my job totally rocks!! <3
  • Setting up my own little office during our house move so I now have a whole room dedicated to my photography work Eek!! I’m so use to having an office in the corner of my old spare bedroom that this small change has been really appreciated!
  • Next year brings a Wedding booked in a castle in Wales YAYYYY – the furthest my photography has taken me! I’m so psyched I literally can’t wait for next year to start!!

To show how amazing my 2017 has been, I’ve narrowed it down to a very select few of my favourite moments to share with you <3

Thanks 2017 you’ve been amazing…Here’s to an fan-dabby-dozy 2018!! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! 💃🏼 🥂 🍾 💃🏼 🎊

Poppy & her Ponies ~ Essex Equestrian Photography

Well to say I was excited to get over to the McDonalds for a full afternoon of playing ponies and dogs is an understatement. After speaking with Claire briefly on Friday to make sure we were all still good for the following day, she ensured me that all seven (yes that’s right 7!!!) horses had been bathed (2 of them being greys) and everyone was excited to get some photos done.

I’d already been to the McDonald’s a few years back so knowing their beautiful garden would be in full Spring bloom and the vast areas we could use for backdrops I was eager to get shooting. Poppy started off with her ponies, we had the two greys Lulu and Murphy, as well as Taro.

I’ve known Poppy throughout Pony Club for a few years now, so it’s lovely to catch up on a personal level and see the girls enjoy their ponies in a chilled environment in the bliss of their own home. Seeing everyone competing is lovely, but it doesn’t beat sitting there for a chat after a photo shoot with a cup of tea and biscuits 😉

 

My thanks to Claire and her family for inviting me over. I had a lovely time, and hope you all did too!!

Laura & Paul ~ Engagement Photos at Hylands Park

When Laura & Paul booked their Wedding Photography with me, we had a great chat and found that we actually shared quite a lot in common especially a great love for our four legged friends. Paul explained that Laura was quite upset that Penny & Woody wouldn’t be able to attend their wedding at Baddow Park in September, so after hearing this I explained that included within their package was an Engagement Shoot, so why not bring the doggies along and we can make an afternoon of it at the park!

I caught up with these guys in Hylands Park, Chelmsford for their pre wedding shoot with Penny & Woody tagging along aswell. The only times I have been here are to watch the good ol’ V Festival which takes part every year, and also back in the day when I did a bit of cross country running for my school team…we’re talking around 16 years ago now not something you’d catch me doing on my weekend off!!

To witness this location in it’s natural beauty is lovely. It stretches on for miles with plenty of grassland, trees, blossom and even a pond – although we avoided this for the sake of the dogs getting wet 😉

Laura & Paul chose this area for their pre wedding shoot as it’s a popular walking spot they enjoy with Penny & Woody and although a little hot, I think the dogs actually quite enjoyed the camera…they certainly enjoyed the treats that came with it! Laura dotes on these two and who can blame her – I love it when any pets come and join in on a shoot!

My thanks to these guys for being great! Bring on September!

Chloe & Patrick ~ Engagement Photos at Dedham Boating

Last weekend I met with Chloe & Patrick for their Engagement Photo Session over at the popular destination of Dedham Boating Park.  Being a well known area to Chloe as she would often come here with her with her family when growing up, and then continued on the tradition when she met Patrick. It seemed like a perfect location for their Engagement Shoot and we even had a beautiful warm day to accompany us too!

Walking around with Chloe & Patrick I felt like I’d known them for years, although in reality we’d only met once briefly at the Crowne Plaza Wedding Fair back in November of last year. These guys were such a fun, easy-going couple, up for lying down in the grass or clambering over muddy patches (although as Patrick kept reminding me he was use to all this after being a part of the army for so long) I really felt like I was out walking with friends for the afternoon.

Although being very popular with the public on this particular day we managed to avoid everyone and create some magic around the lakes and fields.

My thanks to Chloe & Patrick for being great models for the afternoon!
