“Please also go and check out @imageobjectif profile page! She is an incredible photographer. She made me feel totally at ease which obviously helped with getting some beautiful images. Mandy was great at picking the best spots on the farm for the pictures. I never thought I’d get pictures likes this! I thought I’d be too shy to do a shoot but I honestly didn’t feel nervous around Mandy at all! Check out her page and if you are island-based and want pictures taken then I can’t recommend her enough! Me, my family and friends are just in love with the pictures!”
“I hired Mandy for one of her portrait shoots in Appley Park and I can tell, she work style and personality brings the people at ease. She gives so great instruction what easy to follow and also she knows lots of tricks to get the most out of little toddlers. Looking at her images, I truly believe her talent and I highly recommend Mandy.” ~ Baby session for a 3 year old, Isle of Wight
We bonded over our love of glitter – Dollie-Rae with her twinkle-toe shoes, me with a shiny new pedicure. Unicorns anyone?
Our second love? Taking photos. The final beach portrait is taken by Dollie (and it’s just about in focus)!
Trembling fingers, eagerly outstretch to grasp the camera, I nervously wrap the neck strap around Dollie’s fingers, “say cheese daddy” we laugh as Dollie takes a ‘photo’ of her dad on Appley beach.
She might have had just a little help to keep the camera steady.
Ryde Portrait Professional Photographer
A rainbow greeted us on the day of Jamie’s portrait session in Ryde.
Bright, cheerful and welcoming.
Like Jamie himself.
A carer for young children, aspiring model and friend to many.
Looking after those in care, showing people what it means to have a friend. Jamie is passionate about his friends and family, helping youngsters feel positive about themselves.
His mission is to work with photographers: on-location, in a studio and parading down a catwalk. Jamie’s an expert at connecting with the camera, showing a positive attitude he arrives with a broad grin on his face, “let’s get started”.
I’ve always believed in the miraculous power of giggles, sharing stories and finding a connection. Feeling comfortable in front of the camera is important. And it shows in your smiles.
“Hey amanda :). Thank you so much for this opportunity it was amazing I would love to work with you again your so skilled at taking photos definitely the best 😀 Thank you Jamie”
Annabelle’s smile is like summer, and after reading the comments on her portraits I really, really hope that Annabelle realises just how special she is.
“oh, wow, you’re glowing.” “I love some of the ones with you smiling. You look genuinely happy.” “you’re amazing and beautiful and you inspire me to do amazing things never stop smiling .”
Talented and creative, Annabelle’s soul really shines when she sings, you can feel the pulse of her heart as she shares her melodies.
See if you agree (portfolio).
Appley Beach | Portraits with Annabelle
Winding my car through the maze of tourists towards the small spaces afforded by Appley Beach carpark, I was eager to photograph Annabelle’s beautiful portraits with the utterly buttery, summery light on Ryde’s beach.
The park compromises of an old golf course surrounded by mature oak tree with two key pathways, the best of which takes us down to the beach, one of my favourite places to take natural headshots.
Although the area was busy with visiting tourists, by my count the beach was almost wholly taken over by families carrying buckets, spades and umbrellas, I hugged with excitement.
“Sorry I’m late,” smiled Annabelle. I was secretly relieved. I’d left without my purse and the parking app wasn’t working for me (and typically there was a ticket inspector on the prowl). I needed some extra time to solve my parking conundrum.
Annabelle was amazing to work with, fully embracing my free-flowing approach to natural portraits. I really wanted the below performer photographs to speak for themselves, so here are my favourite photographs taken with my film camera (F100 with Porta 400).
Here are the last film portraits I took with my F100 camera in Appley Park.
