What a fantastic day in memory of Victory in Europe 75 years ago! Shifnal celebrated in colourful style at a socially acceptable distance!
The other day as part of my daily exercise I cycled through Shifnal and stopped briefly outside a few of the houses on my way. I didn't get closer than two metres to the families in the houses, I didn't stay too long outside their house and I didn't steal any of their loo roll. I did however manage to get a few shots of them as a family at their home. Times are rough, life is hard at the moment but there are still so many positives. Hopefully in years to come the families I spoke to will look back at their photos with some lovely memories.
Take photos people. Make memories & enjoy the time together. Stay safe and well.
P.S. Happy Birthday to Amber (who I photographed on my travels), her birthday was this week. I hope you and your mum & sister had a really special day.
Hey. Firstly I hope you are all safe and well. It is crazy times we are living in currently and sometimes it all doesn't feel real. I know I am very fortunate as I am currently being entertained by two little ladies whilst on lockdown. We have been attempting home schooling, creating obstacle courses in the garden, baking banana loaf (Nell has an amazing recipe I'm sure she will share with you if you like), enjoying Disney +, having water fights, drawing lots with 'Draw with Rob' and annoying each other a lot. The girls have definitely kept a smile of my face and almost made us forget the scary crap happening in world.
I haven't picked up a camera for a while so yesterday, Easter Sunday I decided to pick up my camera, clean the lens and start shooting again. Betsy and Nell (or should I say Betsy and Peter Rabbit), enjoyed a treasure hunt in the morning followed by an Easter Egg hunt. Buckets of chocolate were consumed. We decided to walk / ride it all off around the lovely town we live in for our daily exercise. I loved Shifnal before but as I walked / ran (to keep up with Betsy on the bike) around town it made me proud to live here even more so. Windows filled with teddies, rainbows and sunshines. There were messages of positivity and messages of thanks to our amazing NHS. We saw faces we knew and faces we didn't but they all greeted us the same way, with a massive smile and a welcoming hello (from a social acceptable distance).
Through all this darkness there has been so much light and positivity. Here are a few pics from our Easter Sunday and our lovely town of Shifnal.
Rewind back to February when the world felt a little more normal and when we could meet and celebrate love. Katie & Rory tied the knot at the beautiful Pendrall Hall. At the time, Storm Denis was in full swing but this didn’t dampen the celebrations. Here’s such a few from the gallery of such a fantastic day.
Yay Team Biggins are back on the blog!
I shot this family last May in Apley Woods. It is so lovely returning to the same location and capturing how much the three girls have grown. Such a fun family, they really make my job not feel like a job at all. It was a pleasure to spend the morning with this awesome family and the girls definitely deserved their McDonalds afterwards.
