Summer Portrait Session with Jen Eustace in Dorset

by Robert Whetton 29. July 2010 01:57

Yesterday I should have been in the heart of the New Forest at about 4.30am taking photographs of Deer in the morning light. I should have been, but the event was cancelled and my day scuppered.. So instead I took the time to take Jen out into the countryside nr Shaftesbury for some summer portraits. I'd spotted some nice fields last week when travelling to a Rhythm & Dance class to take photographs for their new website. Just a couple of shots up for now, I need to prepare some other work before heading off on holiday on Sat (my first holiday in 5 years! so looking forward to it)

I'll edit and post more after the holiday.

Dorset Wedding Photographer Robert Whetton 2nd Shooting for Boundless Photos at Ettington Park

by Robert Whetton 25. July 2010 19:51

Last week saw me up north shooting a Friday Wedding with Nick from Boundless Photos. Jon couldn't be there and so I took the place of Jon for the day. Following the Groom, Chris around in the morning before the ceremony and then merging with Nick and taking candid photographs throughout the day and generally assisting him.

I think it's safe to say that everyone at the wedding had a great time. The photo booth photographs show they certainly were!

A few of my shots taken throughout the day.

Passing of Amelia

by Robert Whetton 24. July 2010 02:12

Back in March I posted photographs of Amelia's Holy Communion because it was feared that she wouldn't make it to when the rest of the year at Corpus Christie School had theirs.

The evening of Thursday June 24th 2010, Amelia lost her battle with Neuroblastoma. She went peacefully in her sleep after over a year of battling. Amelia's family asked me to photograph the funeral, her Rainbow Celebration. A difficult thing for me to attempt, never been asked to cover one before I wasn't sure of what to capture, but I did my best.

It was an emotional roller coaster of a day. I think switching into pro mode saved my emotions on the day, but hit me after when I had time to reflect.

A few photographs from the day.
