Jolene get’s her kit off. Almost!

by

Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of Katie Garcha.

I know I haven’t written a blog since October but I felt like I was writing about the same things over and over again so I decided to take some time away. Today I had the very gorgeous Jolene in the studio and I have to blog our session.
Jolene is a very good friend of mine and is an absolute inspiration. A few years ago, Jolene was in a very bad car accident in which she was seriously injured. Now, I wont go in to detail because I know she will read this and I hate the thought of her re living the event as I have seen first hand what it does to her. Let’s just put it this way, she is a warrior! And a bloody gorgeous one at that.
Yes I know I am singing her praises but if anyone has shown me that life is to be lived, it’s Jolene. She is one of my best friends and I love her to bits!

Anyway, Jolene is currently over in Cyprus with us for a few months and I have been desperate to try out some boudoir type shoots. So I asked her if she would be up for it and my goodness I am glad she agreed. I am so happy with the result and I hope you all like them too.

Everyone woman deserves to be shown just how stunning they are and I am a true believer that everyone is beautiful.  This is the exact reason I am going to be offering these sessions from March 2016. I want women to come in to my studio, get a make over with a professional make up artist then enjoy having fun whilst I capture every bit of their beauty.

I really hope you enjoy these images :)jolene | Katie Garcha Photography (more…)

Ariana’s Cake Smash and Splash

Ariana’s Cake Smash!

Good afternoon one and all, come on in and get comfy as it’s time to check out some pictures of yet another cake smash. We all love a good cake smash!
For todays blog, I have the beautiful Ariana who came in for her 2nd birthday cake smash. Her smile lit up the room and she can certainly pull some funny faces. She had such fun playing with the cake and twirling in her beautiful dress. I was really impressed when I noticed that her dress actually matched the cake! That never happens.

After Ariana was all caked out, we brought out the bath tub for some splashy fun, she loved it. I love watching children’s faces light up when they realise they can splash as much as they want and make loads of mess.

Anyway I’d like to say a huge thank you to Ariana for being my first cake smash since I landed in Cyprus. I was desperate to do one and I couldn’t have asked for a better session. I love my job and I love to make people happy by giving them such wonderful memories.

Right, i’m stopping myself before I bore you all with my sob story about not working for a few weeks…..

Here is Ariana enjoying her cake smash, I hope you all enjoy it too :)

The Wedding Of Mr&Mrs Britten

by

The Wedding Of Mr&Mrs Britten was one of those weddings that you just don’t want to leave. The entire family were so welcoming and made me feel more like a guest than someone who was working all day. It was stunning from start to finish and I felt honoured to be a part of the occasion.
When I arrived at the Mother of the brides home, getting ready was in full force. The bridesmaids were having hair and make up done so I quickly got all my kit out and began clicking away, the bride appeared from the bedroom and my gosh she looked stunning. Her hair was perfect, she didn’t look nervous….yet and her make up was flawless. As everyone got ready, more and more people began to wait outside for a glimpse of the bride.
The cars soon arrived and we made our way to the church, everyone looked amazing. The bride arrived and the ceremony began, it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I’ve covered. the Church was stunning, the stain glass windows were just gorgeous. All the guests were eager to see the bride and the groom stood at the front awaiting that first look. As the Bride walked in, the gasps and oooh’s and arrrr’s were clear to hear. Everyone looked so proud and happy.

After the ceremony we went on to the reception venue, Sudbury house hotel in Farringdon and braved the cold for some outdoors photo’s, it started raining so we ran inside for the rest of the shots. The venue had beautiful gardens and I really wish we had more time outside as the potential is endless, there are so many places to explore and in the right weather it could be just amazing. We made the most of what little sun shine we had and got the shots we needed. The brother of the bride did a fab job gathering everyone for photo’s, especially one particular shot which all the men seemed to be excited for. They had all worn odd socks! I’m not entirely sure the bride was impressed but the image still looked pretty awesome and I do love a fun shot.

Anyway, before I blab on and on about how beautiful everything was, here’s the images you’ve been waiting for.

The Campbell Family

by

The gorgeous Campbell family came to see me back in December for a studio shoot in order to get some nice photo’s of their daughter in her baptism gown. We ended up doing a full studio shoot so we could include the whole family.
I really enjoyed this shoot and the family were an absolute joy to work with, I must admit it’s refreshing to have clients who bring their own ideas. As much as I love sharing all my own ideas, I absolutely love it when people have their own ideas. Like I always say, they’re your images so tell me what it is you want.

I have not done many family studio sessions lately as most people seem to brave the outdoors. I do love a good studio shoot however I find so many people who find it very daunting coming into a studio and being the centre of attention. I am very easy going and always happy to take a brake if needed, there tea and coffee on hand at all times and with the studio being in my home theres all the comforts of your own home right here.

Christmas Cake Smash 2014

by

Christmas cake smash, oh yes I went ahead with it and so far so good. I am absolutely in love with the work and everyone who has been to the studio has said how much fun they have had. All of this make me one happy Katie and obviously some VERY happy children. Seeing their faces when they walk in the room to find a whole cake just for them, it amazes me every time. The instant mischievous look in their eyes as they look around to see if this is really happening. This is something you just don’t really get with 1st birthday cake smash. One year old babies just want to play with this cool thing in front of them. Older children know it’s bad to play with their food so just want to get right in their and make some crazy mess.
Although one thing that definitely surprised me was the lack of eating that was going on. One year old babies actually eat more of the cake that 5 year olds!!! That shocked me a little but hey they were perfectly happy using the cake as a weapon! I love the joy you see in their angelic little faces when they get mum or dad messy with cake knowing they can’t tell them off! Oops. Let’s call that one my bad.
I have been so, so busy lately and I really wanted to do individual blog posts but I would have at least a week between posts, so I decided to find my favourite from the first three shoots and put them together in one blog post for you all to see.

I hope you like them, Enjoy x
